Re: Upgrade my furnace to central air?

Looks like 10 gauge is twice the price of 12 gauge. Probably not worth it.

Re: Info about the new Dexron LV fluid

I feel like the oldest transmission it's really meant for would be the 6L series. I don't even know if I'd put it into my 5L50. It does well with Dexron VI and the anti-shudder additive.

Re: Upgrade my furnace to central air?

Ordered with the PVC line set cover as well as the wall mount brackets. Total with freight was $1,605.85. The electrical part is another step. I have to run 12 or 10 gauge from my breaker box to the outside garage wall, add a disconnect switch and electrical whip. The disconnect switch and whip is o...

Re: Upgrade my furnace to central air?

Total fail on my part. After being back ordered for months, it is now $1,972 and I no longer see the 16' line option. I suck. Oddly if I press scratch and dent there is still the 16' line option and the price is $1,420.35 but then it still says on back order. How can a scratch and dent be on back o...

Re: Mercedes E55 AMG hunt (W211)

Fun fact. The oil level sensor is actually more than an oil level sensor. It also measures temp and oil quality. How? Capacitance, my dear boy. Anyway, that would make this more sophisticated than what GM has done. Of course, more sophisticated doesn't necessarily mean better. After years of doing p...

Re: 04 E55 AMG: Fuel rail pressure damper

No this code isn't back. But it does still have a rough cold start idle. There is a vestigial brake booster plug that is an overly complicated design that the non-SBC cars use that can leak. Putting some info here so I don't lose it. https://mbworld.org/forums/w211-amg/686157-supercharger-snout-plug...

Re: Mercedes E55 AMG hunt (W211)

Checked electronically again and it still says OK, at 1,356 miles into this quart. I became a little suspicious and checked using the dipstick (which I never trusted). Somehow I got the clearest reading I've ever seen (and the oil itself is much cleaner than I expected at 2,6xx miles on this oil) bu...

"Crossover vehicles"

I guess this term started earlier than I thought. It just took a while to become mainstream and really people still use SUV interchangeably anyway...
