    Does motor oil go bad just sitting?

    Me and me Dad have this discussion quite a bit. Can motor oil sitting in an engine when it's not needing a change harm the engine? Most oil changes recommend xxxxxx miles or every 6 month etc. But why do you need to change it say in the 6 months if you only have 1,000 miles on it? Does it...

    What ever happened to car bras?

    When I was growing up everyone ha a car bra on their car. I mean it was one of the first things you have to get for your cars. Now I never see them on the road anymore. Probably one reason was all the dirt they would get underneath them and scratch your paint up. I don't know why did more damage...

    Let's talk about vehicle GPS devices

    I would like to discuss vehicle GPS units. We have a Garmin (I forget the model number) but i think it's a 5" widescreen model. When I bought it thankfully it came with lifetime maps. We used it over the weekend and I was thinking it was such a great investment, I mean I don't know how people...

    Why are used cars so expensive in America?

    Kelly Blue Book has been purchased by Autotrader (used car seller) and NADA Guides has been purchased by J.D. Power (a P.R. firm) and no longer give accurate values of used cars.

    Car stereos and speakers

    Does anyone miss putting in car stereos growing up? I was big into them. There was nothing like installing one and getting everything hooked up and testing them out. I went though a few different speaker setups, but my best was 2x 15" and 3x 10" in a hatchback with a capacitor. That system thumped.

    Diesel trucks

    Why do people own these? I mean I understand when you need to use them for power etc. But around here they are a trend thing. Like if you own a truck it has to be a diesel. Not like your pulling anything, just to say that you have one. But for example it's cold out. So people leave them running...

    Rotating tires

    How is everyone up on their tire rotations? How often do you do them? I have to admit I have been slacking. Like real bad on a few vehicles. Rotated them on my truck yesterday. Way overdo. It's not like it's a bad job to do, just takes a little. Some of you might take them to a tire place or...

    Rhino ramps

    Anyone ever use these? I picked up a set at Walmart over the weekend. Thought they would give me some additional clearance when I do my oil changes. Some mixed reviews on Amazon about them though. But they seem pretty sturdy to me.

    Apparently a Audi TT without an oil change at 84,000 miles without an oil change. Here is a Honda Civic at 200,000 with regular oil changes.

    PSA: Change your cabin filter

    So for those of you that have never changed your cabin filter in your car, I would HIGHLY recommend it. I pulled mine out of my car and have never replaced it before an it was disgusting. I can't even believe that my car's heater or vents even worked. For the cost around $15 I highly recommend...
