  1. WOW, chest thumping EGO's. Who cares about your political views, this is a truck forum. Take your political B.S. else where.
  2. No humidity, no hot summers. Like where I'm at.
  3. Thanks for posting this. Are all group III base stocks the same quality? If I understand it means it has less garbage in it than a group I. Is Amsoils group III more refined/cleaner base stock?
  4. Customboss, you're service may not be appreciated by some or by many on a daily basis, but never doubt that many appreciate your service along with the many others on a daily basis.
  5. I think they are paying $5k a month, no contract. I agree with you Karnut.
  6. I'm not looking forward to the day I can no longer repair or maintain our stuff. Having to pay for something I used to do and than the trust, quality of work factor doesn't set well with me. A friend and his wife just moved into an apartment/retirement facility with prepared meals and cleaning because of aging problems. He lived in the mountains by us and couldn't keep up their home anymore. The wife was tired of cooking and cleaning. They are in their 80's.
  7. Seems like this motor design is a poor one. My son has the same motor as I have mentioned. It's his daughters car and she lives with her mom. So the granddaughter swings by my sons house so he can check the oil etc. He replaced the head, remember? Since he replaced the head he has done 1 oil change, about 3k I think. He doesn't use mileage, he uses the computer. The oil consumption went down a little just before the first oil change. There are design problems in a lot of products, comes with a new design or just a poor design from the start. A case in point. My brother in law, a very smart and handy fella was making money on a design flaw in a brand of big screen TV. This was a Plasma TV highly rated for it's picture quality. This was a few years back. There were a lot of these non-working out of warranty TV's for sale on craigslist. He bought one not working, figured out the problem. He could fix it for a few dollars in parts, I think it was a resistor that failed and a few hours of his time. He was repairing them and reselling them. The manufacturer was charging a high price for a Printed Circuit Board replacement, so people just sold them cheap. GM's lifter problem also comes to mind.
  8. Did I miss something? Were you having problems? Rough idle, a miss? I get changing the plugs but unless their was another problem why wires and coils? Of course preventative maintenance goes a long way.
  9. If you are driving on dry pavement almost all the time it should stay in 2WD to prevent wear on the front differential and the transfer case. Yes Use 4x4 when needed.
