You would need this snowfall we got in the last 24 hours.PLP - as time permits get a few more winter shots up! Love to see great lakes region weather. All we have are forest fires - not very photogenic
That's exactly what I was expecting.my car sounds like an angry drunk elephant, emitting a bit of belt squeel, violent vibrations, and a loud whirring noise
Staax - up there in Canada - are there those so called "oxygenates" or corn-alcohol or grain-based fuels in your gas supply? They are CRAP when it comes to cold weather combustion. What motor oil do you use?Wow, your car starts so smoothly in those temperatures.
It's been -20 in the mornings for the past few days and my car sounds like an angry drunk elephant, emitting a bit of belt squeel, violent vibrations, and a loud whirring noise when the clutch is pushed in (I'm thinking throwout bearing). All of which is absolutely normal according to the dealer... Sigh.
Once it's warm car is fine, but man I feel like this is the worst car I've ever had in the cold.
I was an AMSOIL diehard in the early 2000's, but now around where I live, too hard to find, inconvenient to get. I used their 10w-40 for 100K in my 99 NEON, LOVED it.!Most fuel around here contains 10% ethanol with the exception of one particular station - Shell - but only if you get 91 (which I do).
I don't always go to Shell mind you.
And I'm running PUP for the last 10k km. The first 25k was using Amsoil Signature.
We had an older local guy with a mobile home trailer set up as an AMSOIL storefront retailer - so convenient and he had everything product wise. Then passed away, and his wife sold all the AMSOIL stuff. Then I was a MOBIL 1 user; now I"m flexible with synthetics..............Yeah both oils have been just fine. And I too gave up the Amsoil because it's too difficult/too much of a hassle to get.
I've happily swapped to PUP now that's it's available up here... A year and a half ago it wasn't, only PP was avail.
We got a lot of fresh snow over the Christmas, too.PLP, what wheels are those?
