Re: Where can you work on your car?

Good Responses guys. Appreciate the insight. That's one thing I hate about renting, you almost lose the ability to be self-reliant.

Re: ClutchDisc's new ride

Nice car! I love the Focuses. You got a good motor, timing chain, DOHC plenty of power etc.

I've got an Auto one in the household. I hear the passenger motor mounts are common to go. Easy as pie to do though. Other than that, been pretty good!

Re: RomPirate's new-new-new-new car

Well, new to me at least. I've been looking at getting another car for some time now. Took a look at the Fiesta ST, the FR-S and some E46's. I'm a shade tree mechanic that happens to like tools a lot too, and my other cars have been so darn reliable I haven't had a good wrenching in some time. It o...

Re: Where can you work on your car?

I never claimed maintenance worried me. I just wondered what solutions are out there for that issue.

I probably would do an extended OCI if I was doing a >10k mile road trip. Get me one of those super synthetic oil filters etc.

Where can you work on your car?

If you live in an apartment, where can you go to do things like Oil changes, brake pad changes, engine swaps and other automotive related things? I also recently became interested in Overlanding. If you're on a long road trip, where can you change your own oil or do any other maintenance while on th...

Re: Finally got another car

I'm happy to hear the positive thoughts. The spaceball shifter is kinda nifty. I will admit, the extra gear makes for a bit more of a challenge to determine which gear is right.

Finally got another car

So after driving only Honda Civics my entire driving career, I finally ventured out and got myself something different. After years of thought and planning I got myself a new to me car. Story is actually kind of funny, but long story short, I got it from a friend. I'll have to get some pictures when...

Re: How bad would a 2WD pickup be in the snow?

I actually really want a Cummins Ram. Always loved them old semi trucks.

Now if I could only find a use so I wouldn't feel like a tool driving a full size truck with barely a need.

Ah, I wonder how similar it is to the GTI/GLI engine.

Re: Post your speed in top gear at 3000 RPM

Well, it seems they have sorted out the transmission problems at this point and that was my only serious gripe, so I decided to get a second one. Besides, Toyota is still selling the same ancient 4Runner from the 2010 model year, complete with that ancient 5 speed automatic. If they had a new one o...

Re: I've been thinking about getting a leftover diesel

That's what I mean, other than the torque, that in all honesty Gas engines are starting to get, there really is no incentive for diesel. You have the premium of the motor, DEF, the lousy emissions garbage. There's almost no solid reason to get one. Maybe I'll keep an eye out for the older ones then....
