Things that piss you off (anything)

Recommended Posts

Getting to the end of my defensive driving course, only to lose connection for a few seconds (logged me out), so now I have to watch the last few sections over again.

I go 15000 on Mobile1 and a Bosch filter, about once a year. I lose one quart per oil change.

I'll pay $7.50 every year for an extra quart.

heck yeah mobil1 is great. Im using amsoil right now the signature series. i go 25,000 with that oil and the filter to go with it. Tested the oil. Was still good. I swear by mobil1 and amsoil. ONLY SYNTHETICS

NOT a good idea

160K doing Amsoil 10K oil changes

Thats cool. Im way too old to be upset by shit like that. Your name is winston. Your own parents hated you even before you were born.

My penis is bigger than your penis

I'm far from loud and my roof/headliner flaps around like Adam's ass on a windy day. I think it depends more on the structure of the vehicle.

I do about 5K with my car, but I drive so much for work that that equals out to about 1-1.5 months.

I'm trying to figure out where the fuck my coolant is going though. They supposedly filled it when they did my oil change, only for it to be empty 3 days later. I bought 2 jugs and the second one is almost empty.

And I've seen the exact opposite, too.

There are so many factors besides oil make and change intervals you neglected to mention that have as much or more effect to those motors...

What filter was used every time?

Did the owner put in any stupid additives like lucas oil or seafoam?

Is that the way the motor was serviced from day one?

Where do they live? is it dusty?

Did they ever forget to put their oil cap back on one day?

How was each motor driven?

Not to mention they're not even the same parts of the same motor. You can't tell me that the seals on motor A are the exact same as motor B. A cracked seal can suck in dirt if the crankcase has a good vacuum in it.

Most of these you'll never get the answer to. As soon as I started running Mobil1, I had a ticking lifter stop, my oil consumption dropped, and I have a lot more money in my pocket.

What vehicle?

That being said a lot of people's definition of "music" is a clipped 30 hz sine wave with some 80 IQ knuckle head grunting about committing crimes and his genitals.

02 Rendezvous.

I swore I saw a coolant puddle under it months ago when I stopped at a gas station, but that could have already been there when I pulled up.

No way in hell do I have the money to fix it if it's an intake manifold gasket leak, let alone a head gasket

Ive put face in MANY engines and I have yet to see something come out good from extended oil changes.

Those are notorious for a lower intake manifold and head gasket leaks neither one is hard to do just time consuming well that's assuming you have tools. Do you have the money to rent a pressure tester from autozone?
