      Well, just a guess, but the noise sounds like the pressure relief valve in the power steering system; the same noise you get when you turn the wheel all the way to lock and don't let up. If you...

      Jack it up and look at the ball joints and tie rod ends. Sounds like one or more might be frozen.

      I was going to say "There's a word you don't hear every day". It means to shave off a thin layer. When they install the fitting on the end of the hose, the part that goes inside the hose can shave a...

      Wasn't expecting one.

      Kids these days demand instant gratification and have little if any consideration of other folks' situations. Chill out and go with the flow. Life's too short to stress out...

      55 years experience and I've never heard this. Without some sort of explanation, I wouldn't thank you for this suggestion, either. Sounds like a good way to get a shop vac full of coolant.

      Don't indiscriminately throw parts at it! Spend that money on DICE, or pay someone to scan it. It has an "auto start" sequence that is failing. You need to know why.

      What's the big deal on TP? We lived without it for 10,000 years, and it's not even an intestinal flu!

      Unless you're looking for a worm, Everclear is a lot better than Tequila.

      I'm sure they all do; they'd have to! Problem is, unless you're out in the sticks where there's only a couple of stations, if you move 40 or 50 miles you'll have to change the frequency. I used to...

      So you need a BT to HD radio converter.

      With a leak that small it could be a hose connection that evaporates before you get a chance to see it. A UV dye test may be the only way to find it, or just top it up every month...

      I don't think you understand my point.

      I know it's not a scam. It's a marketing ploy. Neither is welfare or food stamps (a scam); it's just not for me. If the filter fails then I'm going to be looking for more than just another filter....

      I'm sorry, but I would feel dishonest asking for a replacement oil filter (or any other consumables.) Besides, I can get a Wix filter in a private label box for $4.99 at O'Reilly.

      What does that even mean? Do you have to wait until the filter fails (sounds like a bad idea...), then send it back for replacement?

      Are you pushing them up? They don't snap up like they go down. Push them up "smartly" and they lock in place.

      Are you sure about that? About the same time they removed the "S" rating because of the converter issue. Maybe they did both?
