  1. I have two iPods 7K songs. I put a lots of time in those. I pug them once in awhile. With the accessibility of Pandora and others I don’t mess with them much anymore. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I ran into that a few times over the years. My 74 barracuda had ATF in it. I put 90 wt in it because I new better. My 95 Ram took 50 wt in the 5 speed. My power steering in my wife’s Genesis takes a special fluid. The weirdest so far is my rear differential in my Avalanche is to be filled 1 inch below the check plug. I always fill to run out. Shouldn’t on that. So if someone is going to do through the hassle to go under to check the fluid. Chances are they’ll do it right.... maybe. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Most people who care do their own maintenance find that checking your transmission fluid is as easy as changing your oil. Usually if there’s a problem it shows up as a leak or drivability problems. Needing to add fluid in most cases means there’s a problem. Leaving a visible leak. I can count on one hand how many times I pulled my transmission stick other than changing fluid. But I do a visual every time I pull in somewhere then back out. Would I rather have one? Yes. Do I use it? Not really. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. My brother in law always drives large GMs. His wife puts on 200K then he drives them. Just regular maintenance. He’s a plant manager and gets a truck allowance. He doesn’t even wax them and hardly washes them. They always like decent. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. W Watchers going on 30 years. 250 to 220. Blood work is fine. On blood pressure meds since I was 20. Hereditary. Walk daily 4to7K per iPhone. Was hard on body for 30 years on pipelines running clearing eq. So hips, knees, back complain after 7K steps. A byproduct of blood pressure meds getting hungry means getting hangry, weak and nauseous. For years I overeat to avoid that feeling. Learning to eat with WW fixed that.

  6. Modern Vehicles with regular maintenance are routinely going 200K miles. There’s lots of talk about if you don’t bla bla bla your vehicle not going to last. Most people on here trade before 200K. I have garage kept old low mileage vehicles that are like new. Not daily drivers. So who really daily drives a vehicle that’s passed 250K in all kinds of weather? What is your maintenance? And repairs? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. During covid it’s becoming more apparent what works and doesn’t. I hope people wake up and realize the difference. Before choices are made for you. Where that’s happening people are leaving. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. My wife’s and my mileage usually varies by 5 MPG. I’m kinda of a lead foot sometimes she’s less so. I get the better mileage. The difference. I anticipate stoplights. She sits in the car with it running after swimming eating a snack or lunch. I got curious once and asked if she was street racing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I thought I posted my second shot experience. Probably in the spare time thread. Anyway last Friday was the second shot at 7am. Saturday morning I felt a little achy, feverish, generally run down. One Tylenol felt normal. One more at 3 in the afternoon. Woke up Sunday all was normal. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. My daughter who’s a barber. Hasn’t worked in that field since March. She unfortunately started a new job just a few weeks before the covid stuff started. Being the last hire, first to go. She’s has been working in the temporary field mostly baby sitting. She’s interviewing today, fingers crossed. The rest managed to stay employed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I have a old 6 speaker stereo that’s hooked to the TV. It also has a sound bar. Recently I was using my iPhone and wanted to hear a tribute on it. While looking for a connector to the old stereo. I remember a blue tooth speaker I bought for my old truck. After it was all said and done I removed the old stereo and speakers. It was apparent technology had move to the point. The sound bar and blue tooth speaker was of the same quality as the old bulky stereo. I have to blame that more on the Texas freeze than covid spare time. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. My mother in law gave my wife her CRV. She was close to giving up driving anyway. The driving aids sped up the process. The car can be very intrusive and upsetting. Some up the aids can be turned off. The adaptive cruise control can be useful. The most annoying feature is the panic braking. If a car is moving to a turn lane and the painted line is faded. The CRV will panic brake. So you have to ready to tap the gas to override. Otherwise you’re going to get rear ended. All things considered I don’t need any of it. Being a free car I live with it. Can’t wait to see how it all works on a trip. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. It’s been feeling normal in Texas for quite some time. With the exception of the major cities. In the areas outside of the cities mask are requested or required to get in the door. And taken off at the tables only in some areas. On a good note. My brother in law who got laid off from a company he worked for 30 years. Was offered a position back at a reduced salary. At 55 he’s feeling fortunate. After waiting 6 weeks to get unemployment and cashing in some of his 401K he made it through. I feel for younger people. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. 30 years of using their services across the country. Fifteen different GM trucks just the ones I used. In our business. Never a problem. Just like anything else there’s a bad one every now and then. Doesn’t mean they are all bad. I never or anyone one I know has a complaint. I like to see their inventory. Here’s the filter for the free oil change. The good one is for the paying customers. GM must have pretty good non disclosure agreements with the parts guys. No one has come forward accusing GM of using cheep filters for the (free) oil changes. I bet they filter the drain oil and reuse that too. To save money. Just get them past the warranty. Because no one brags about the longest lasting trucks. Oh, wait a minute, they do. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. So. GM wants to be your go to place for oil changes. So they give you free oil changes to hook you with their service. And they put bad, cheap filters on your ride. Which by the way is under warranty. You guys kill me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
