  1. I charge my phone without starting the truck. Compare the size of the batteries. Your vehicle battery is huge compared to the ipad battery. Over time all vehicle batteries will die from the drain put on them by the elctronics. You will be fine IMO.
  2. Personal choice just like your fav color. Me? Why not stop the motor from ingesting some junk if you can.
  3. You will get lots of opinions. My opinion. Works for me.
  4. While I understand your frustation, why not look for an alternative part. Buying the same part makes no sense. My 2 cents.
  5. The wife goes through brakes twice as fast as me. Driving habits make a big difference. Simple really. The more you use them, the faster they wear.
  6. Very happy with these mittens. https://www.amazon.com/Dachstein-Woolwear-Preformed-Austrian-Mittens/dp/B0152FM43I/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?crid=396Z9JRPV23M4&keywords=dachstein%2Bmittens&qid=1573132066&sprefix=dachst%2Caps%2C278&sr=8-2-spons&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEyT1pKWUpJRlVQU0QmZW5jcnlwdGVkSWQ9QTA5OTEwNzIxQjg1REoxSkc1SkpUJmVuY3J5cHRlZEFkSWQ9QTAyODIxOTdGSU9FTzNYV1hIMFYmd2lkZ2V0TmFtZT1zcF9hdGYmYWN0aW9uPWNsaWNrUmVkaXJlY3QmZG9Ob3RMb2dDbGljaz10cnVl&th=1&psc=1
  7. Sorry man. Unforunately you're not the only one in this situation. Fast lube shops = fast turn around, inexperianced employees and improper supervision.
  8. Data? My data. I repeat. I have used K&N in my vehicles, bikes for years. Have over a million miles on them. My used truck, the used Accord and my used ATV have them. Like motor oil, you use what you like.
  9. Off topic but, Chicago is a good example of how gun control doesn't work IMO.
  10. My 2 cents. Good or bad it's availeable. No right answer IMO just a lot of opinions. But I do think in this world today people are not held responsible for their actions.
  11. Thanks kickass New card has a new number. I was thinking of using paypal as you mention or making purchses via a phone call.
  12. One card for cash back. 1 check a month. Paid in full monthly. Looking for advice on internet security devices, software.
  13. No Pass words are only used to log into sites. So what/how are you doing this?
  14. Since we moved to a rural location I have been purcahsing more things online. The shipping is cheaper than driving and a lot of items are avialeable online only. I have had my credit card comprimissed 3 times in 3 months. Norton provided with our internet service isn't doing the job. Visa has been great at denying the fradulent charges. They cancel my old card and send a new one overnight. I know nothing about securing our home internet. I have done some online research but would appreciate some help. Any info would be great.
  15. Hey I have anal thoughts sometimes also. I have questioned and done things in my 65 years that some people would say lock him up. It comes with caring and pride of ownwership IMO. I have used the RainX orange for years. Goodyear blades from Costco on sale for $3- $4 for years.
  16. My brother in law has a 1988 Chevy 2500 350 4 speed. 160 K miles. Motor hasn't been touched. Trans rebuilt and rear end also. Here in Colorado we have 85, 87, and 91 octane due to the altitude. Normal use he uses 85 octane. If he tows a heavy load it spark knocks bad unless he uses 91 octane. Truck can't adjust timing enough to stop the spark knock due to the old technology.
  17. Don't panic. See if the smell continues. Read the previous replies.
  18. Keep on with your opinions about oil.
  19. I get a new truck and all. I bet few of you pay this much attention to your diet. Just not worth it.
  20. My sons Snap On scanner was $5 K. But will read all makes.
  21. I'll pay my taxes here in Colorado. Some states are worse.
