Re: where sells castrol magnatec for $178

Am I going to be one of the few people who never had a problem with Castrol. Used Gtx, syntec, crb turbo, hypuron. To date Castrol syntec has been the only oil to reduce engine running temp to the point where the non linear temp gauge in the car actually reported two/three marks lower under certain ...

So what is the new car market like now wrt sales? A few years ago, everyone was buying new cars and SUVs but lately I'm not seeing as many. Are people holding on to their vehicles longer and not opting to buy new? Just wondering cause this could be why car prices are slowly creeping up even though ...

Re: WTK -Hard starting when engine is warm

That could be a whole lot
Some sensor that could be adversely affected by heat; air temp, throttle position, idle air control valve.
Fuel filter
Damaged wires going to the coil packs
Also not a fan of iridium plugs; they just never worked well for me. I just use plain old copper plugs

Re: WTK -Hard starting when engine is warm

I am unsure what your mean when you say one crank, more than one crank. Are you referring to having to turn the key in the ignition to the start position as a crank; where two cranks would mean turning the key to the start position in the ignition switch twice Or are you referring to the sound the e...

Re: Choice of Car

The most fuel efficient will be those hybrid vehicles currently. If you are trying to save money however; the cheapest vehicle with any one of these technologies (cng, hybrid) should be where you start. CNG stations are a bit limited and fill up takes some time, not to mention having a bomb inside t...

Re: How often should you change your oil?

so to answer adnj. Yes that is a possibility but only in older vehicles that don't have any real emissions control systems. Modern engines will detect the lower volumes of air (if the filter is dirty) and subsequently pump less fuel to match; which negates a lot of soot formation (because emissions)...

Everything that you need to know regarding oil change is in the owner's manual. If you choose to change at a different interval or use a different engine oil spec, it is your perogative. This.
