Honestly its a great filter. Blows the doors off of Fram. I even think its better than

BMW SERIES 3 E90 E91 E92 E93 oil. dipstick. again.

So I downloaded PDF manual for 2010 BMW 3 series from bmwusa.com. And it has this at Page 137 Checking the engine oil level with the dipstick 1.

right time. Im sorry you find it necessary to stare at the instrument panel every time you need to shift. I can do it without looking. Im sure most of the people on this board can do that as well. Perhaps you should try to improve your driving ability. If its that difficult for you to properly operate your vehicle without constantly checking your engine or vehicle speed might I suggest a nice toyota

TOYOTA TACOMA 100000 mile scheduled maintenance

I bought my truck with 85k miles on it and now it has 100000 miles all i have done is regular oil changes. I called toyota to see how much the 100000 mile maintenance would be on my 05 tacoma and he said 230 then asked if i did the 90000 and i said no. He wants to charge around 500 for both the 90k and 100k Do you guys think its worth it to get everything done And how much did everyone else pay for these puttin a ton of money in this damn truck this month haha

fluid and engine coolant need to be changed by looking at it But definitely doesnt seem worth it. 90000 q Replace engine oil and oil filter1 q Rotate tires (except MR2 Spyder) q Replace cabin air filter (Camry and Camry Solara) q Replace engine air filter q Replace spark plugs (ECHO)3 q Replace timing belt (Camry with 1MZ-FE or 3MZ-FE Camry Solara with 3MZ-FE Sienna) q Tighten drive shaft bolt (corolla

LEXUS CT First Used Oil Analysis

I said that after I got my first UOA from Blackstone Labs I would post it. The analysis was unexciting which is what you really want. But the engine also only has 24000 miles on it with only 5700 miles on this change. So I would expect nothing less. Not sure if Im going to do this with every change. Lexus engines are known for longevity toyota as well. I owned two corollas that I got over 200000 miles

TOYOTA PRIUS Weight reduction

I got an 07 Prius a couple weeks ago and of all the info Ive come across on the net (along with ideas of my own) I reduced the as-delivered weight of the car by 40 lbs. by taking out the rear plastic bin that is above the spare the carpeted deck that lives on top of that a small plastic box lid to the left of this deck a couple of tools that arent needed the owners manual the rear cargo net all of

of what PROOF they provide that this is true for your Prius. Rather than changing viscosity go to a synthetic 5W-30 oil until you find that Proof above. (Synthetic oils are what is used in aircraft engines to withstand the intense temperatures.) Additionally my 99 Camry had some oil sludgeing problems and the fact that I had used the proper oil ensured that the warranty was honoured. ( httpwww.corolland.comsludge.html

TOYOTA YARIS 5 Driving Myths That Cost You Money

httpfinanciallyfit.yahoo.comfina...waadad0035&nc Thirty years ago in the days of buck-a-gallon gas its hard to imagine people were giving a second thought to the price at the pump or their driving habits.

TOYOTA CAMRY III 1992 camry water pump HELP

Hey Yall from Georgia. I just bought a beautiful (to me anyway) 92 camry with the 2.2 4 cyl with 147k miles.

I have a 330 coupe( MY daughter got it when I paid it off) & didnt have any where near the problems I have had with this car. But it is so cool. I love it.

NISSAN Musings of a prospective owner

Im in the market for a small car to replace my aging 99 corolla (about to roll over 140000 miles). It runs well but is starting to use oil (no oil leaks I checked) so I was considering either a Fit Versa or Yaris. Did a test drive on the Fit and Versa couldnt find the sedan Yaris to take a test drive and I didnt like that you couldnt get cruise control on the hatchback Yaris. Im a very tall person

KIA SEPHIA II Sephia Problems

Hello everyone. I was wondering. What problems have you had with your car and what were they

My Kia Sephia 2000 LS has been great when I first got it as a hand me down (when my sister got a toyota corolla S man those cars are pretty nice&33) the spark plugs were severely worn so ti would barely rev up half way and kept misfiring really bad until I put in new Bosch Platinum 4 plugs performance was nice the the stock intake system sucked so I replaced it. (tried about 6 different variations

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E II 210 Shopping for a E430 (W210) what are some things I should know Parts that should be

Hi all Ive read the stickies and searched through the forum taking notes but I know theres no replacement for experience. So any and all opinions are welcome. Im shopping for a E430 (W210) and am wondering what things I should be looking for. Im aware of the rust & harmonic balancer issues. Are any years better than others Were most of the issues resolved by the 2002 model year Are there any options

fit. The only thing Im worrying about is if I overlook something which could cause problems which domino into an expensive issue. I have at max a 15000 budget but Id like to stay below 10000. So my plan was is to find a well cared for W210 with no rust & have all of the aging parts which will inevitably go bad over time replaced with fresh new parts. I do have another car (cheap little late 90s toyota

BMW SERIES 5 E39 Just purchased used and have a couple questions

2001 530i. The only thing wrong (well actually there is one more thing but owner is having smog done before delivery to us). one- the windshield washer doesnt squirt water out. I have replaced washer pumps on other cars not sure what is wrong yet havent looked into it. Any ideas is this common Two- nothing wrong with breaks but they do squeak owner says thats because the disc rotors are drilled for

no idea what that sentence above is intimating. A BMW is a car just like any other car. Not sure why it would be different in any respect (other than in handling and bulletproof reliability of the engine and horridly lousy engineering in many of the peripherals because BMW doesnt know how to build a complete set of systems working together).

Does anybody have a copy of the King of the Road Article on the Mark IV vs. Eldorado in 1972 I am really wanting to read it so could someone post it possibly thanks

6th from the local Cadillac public relations contact Ray Conners. The Continental Mark IV was ready about four working days later after a close inspection and detailing by Bill Stroppe & Company. For about a week the keys were passed around the office as I tried to get everyone in the cars either as a driver or rider. One staffer refused to drive either car. He preferred staying in a 5-speed toyota

MERCEDES BENZ 124 124 Is valve adjustment a BFD

Hello all. Im a fairly competent shade tree mechanic and would like to know if adjusting valve clearance on the 3.2 liter motor is a big friggin deal or not. If its as much of a hassle as on my old V6 Dino with a shim disk in a bucket-like thingie on each valve Ill take it to the shop. Cheers Dave

You might be hearing a noisy oil solenoid which is part of the variable intake cam mechanism. I remember when I owned a 2001 corolla I would hear strange ticking and tocking noises under the hood. These were eventually attributed to the oil solenoid. Since the early toyota VVT and earlier MB variable system are essentially the same I would expect that there is an oil solenoid for the MB system too.

BMW SERIES 3 E46 Take 02 325Ci to a dealership for Inspection II

Im new here. I just bought a Steel Gray 2002 325Ci 5MT with 135000 miles on the odometer a week ago. Black leather Premium Package and Heated Front seats. I got it for 7k with a clean title. I thought it was a good price but Im open to hearing opinions after my description. PURPOSE I bought this as a project car. Autox track days and daily driver. PAST CARS 90 Hyundai Excel 95 toyota corolla 01 toyota

to buy one I wont invest lots of money straight away. First I would get rid of rust change belts oil etc... Id practice with stock on snow for some time. Then I would install lsd get some tires and increase turbo bar. In the long run I may invest up to 10 grand USD. I may be wrong and ignorant but I think BMW 324td performance doesnt fall back much compared to the most popular drift car ever - toyota

MERCEDES BENZ 124 124 My 95 E320 is shaping up to be a keeper

Caution this post is long. Youve been warned. I type not only quickly but I loves me some automotive-related posting Sure the transmission is hosed in reverse...that particular issue can be fixed for 500 or so if Ive just gotta have it and Ive found transmission life be it manual or automatic is typically between 150K and 200K miles anyway so I hate to put 500-600 into it now only to find in 35K miles

Your E320 has a VVT pulley on the intake cam which is controlled by oil pressure and a solenoid valve. In my experience (I had a toyota corolla with a knockoff copy of the earlier MB VVT system) the oil solenoid sometimes contributes to strange ticking noises under the hood. One more thing to do is pull up the carpet inserts in the drivers and passengers front footwells and inspect the foam. If there

BMW SERIES 3 E36 made a checklist for my new 325is anything to add

Yes my cars temp increased well above normal today. It went near the 120 degree C mark. I was puzzled. No fluids on the ground no leaks and I just cleaned the engine two days before.

And a quart too of Pennzoil engine oil (forgot the weight but its
