    What did you do to your other vehicle today?

    The Expedition expedition continues to see setbacks. Yesterday, the second case magnet sent overnight from Ford's Detroit main warehouse to my local dealer was lost in the same system. Here's my thought on that. It's a magnet about 1" square. If it was shipped in a bubble envelope, it is...

    No third brake light

    Oh, yeah - welcome to the forum! I see you're from Ellijay. Beautiful place. I spent spring break of '87 (I think) riding mountain bikes and kayaking in that area. God's Country!

    No third brake light

    The Terminals are no longer available from Jeep, and I don't think the Grommets are either, but Omix-ADA sells OEM-equivalent (their words, not mine) Grommets.

    Anyone have good recommendations for a decent heater for the garage? Needs to be 110v

    You can actually take that one step farther for comparison purposes. BTU is a unit of energy, just like watts. There are about 3.4 BTUs in a watt. So, a 1500 watt electric heater will put out about 5000 BTU/hr. Compare that to the ubiquitous Buddy Heater, which puts out about 4,000 BTU/hr on...

    So many coolant flushes!

    Ben actually gave that same Evaporust story as part of his explanation to me because the products are of similar chemical composition. Apparently, one of their most popular calls is regarding black parts left in Evaporust for too long...

    So many coolant flushes!

    I don't know why you wouldn't just pick up the phone and call the manufacturer, since they know their product better than anyone on the Internet would. I just called Evaporust for you (actually, the parent company is CRC - the big chemical company) because I was curious and as the Latin in my...

    So many coolant flushes!

    A month? Here's what their web site says: If I were you, I'd call Evaporust (the manufacturer) and ask if the mud-colored water could be a result of running it too long...

    Rebuild my Denso alternator?

    1. Have you properly diagnosed the alternator as the problem? 2. If so, have you determined the windings are okay? That kit won't fix a broken wire in the winding.

    LCoG and long arm lifts

    {ENGINEERING SNARK FILTER ON}Actually, if you're talking about precision, you should have said 40/60. Your measurements (6 and 8) have only one significant figure of precision. Therefore, the quotient should be stated to one significant digit by rounding. That makes it 40% up, not 43%...
