  1. Well made it to 300,000 today with my 2000 Pontiac grand am 2.4l twin cam ... she is still running well. Thanks for the help and tips getting here. Shout out to ringo64, frosty and two lane black top
  2. Not sure how to send the video from Facebook messager, but anywho. There is this guy using a torch on a shock assembly to separate it. Of course it work, but man that spring goes flying. That guy either A: has no brains B: balls of steel.
  3. Awesomeness.... ( I'll put the antifreeze in my carburetor ) roflmao
  4. Hey now! Lol. O tho the heater hose quick disconnect did just pop. Low coolant light came on I'm like shiiittt water pump first thought .. got blessed. Fix the hoses, flushed it and refilled with new coolant. Seems good to go. Frosty I'm still surprised this engine has made it this far. The dumb guy I got it from was just cracking away hitting gas petal on old oil .. oil pressure sensor was leaking everywhere .. alt was shorted out on the motor and only two cyls were firing... talk about a bet. You every have one of them feeling that it is a good car nonetheless????
  5. O2 have been replaced up and down stream. I think it melted the cat. The upstream o2 was melted lol. When I got the car only two cylinders fired and was dumping fuel down the drain. That was 100k ago so car got lucky it survived.. it should have washed the cylinders.. even diluted oil something like that. Frosty might remember me talking about that a wile ago
  6. P0420 has been lit up for a wile just don't seem to bug the car. I bearly touch the gas to go sometimes. Great gear ratios. I can turn off the cat code to pass test then it pops up down the road in 100miles to 500. Just tryna to learn more about oils always been a thing of interest considering how close every engine is to self destruct at a moment's notice
  7. Damn! Actually thanks that's the kind of info I was hunting for. It's an oil treatment not stabilizer but it is thick so I just assumed it was a stabilizer. Did not know it was bad on the cat but the car is at 282,000 soooooo the cat is already bad and I'm trying to make it to 300k +
  8. Last Indian why do u say I'm defeating the purpose of the oil with stp. Yes I go by miles I'll never get to 3 months let alone 6 or more. I use stp for ZDDP and to help the oil so I thought. This car has a really long timing chain ... so then there is nothing as full sys oil just dino oil with packages... 700f that's a lot. Yes ur have some serious friction like a slipped crank bearing or something in that seriousness of nature...really I think 6k is good but I let it go for a while just to see and it was still amber at 9k and even 10k .... but you also ( I ) have to think that it needs a whole quart at about 4k to 5k and then every 2k after. I use walmarts full sys high mileage 5w30
  9. I use it in most cars I own because one can just tell it is better. The main reason is because it is just better quality oil it seems. Just to be clear the only improvement is constant viscosity? I still add a little STP oil stabilizer, If the bottle said use whole id use 1/3rd of it.
  10. What's the longest you all let an oil change go? I was running full synthetic oil..... 8k 10k 12k?????
  11. Ok well re did test to see max pressure.. after 7 or 8 puffs it came out to 180, 185, 185, 185... and it stayed there even if you did ten puffs
  12. Sad but true. There not at all accurate to one another, all tho some people think the king james is 99% correct. Like you said last Indian not to get all into it. I wonder where they got demon from anyways was it like scooby doo and some guy in a mask so to speak or was it for real !!!!
  13. What about dragons ?? What is you-alls thoughts there, t-rex or real fire breathing dragon heart stuff
