  • When did cars start using plastic oil filters?

    Latest car I have done a oil change on is a 2003 and still uses a external metal type. I watch a video on Mazda 3 2007 oil change. seems the plastic filter goes into a metal housing underneath the car and you need a different type of oil filter tool.

    i.e herrodmotorsport, Ezyflash, unichip, powerchip and so. For instance you can supposedly pay under 1k for a VZ or later model and get a few more kw with a new ignition/fuel map and rising the factory red line a little bit. Manufacturers are always conservative to make sure they cars last and economical. These programs remove these restrictions.

  • Why, did everyone jump on the auto repair bandwagon?

    Kmart was the 1st. Goodyear and brakes plus which used only do tyres and brakes. Have cars become more unreliable. Reason is there is a repair shop down the road for sale. Can't afford it but why? sell it if it is making a good turnover. I'm surprise Bob Jane T mart don't do repairs or maybe they do too. In AUS/VIC

  • How much does it cost to replace the pins in a gas heater?

    I had a origin contractor come out and look at the gas heater when it stopped working he said the pins are gone which would need replacing he quoted 2.5k which I find hard to believe. You can get a brand new gas heater for 1.5K. Is he right or over quoted do these old inbuilt gas heaters really cost that much to fix?

Yet I have never heard of friends/relatives or anyone talk about it. When the roads are not busy you should keep left unless turning right within say 400m. In NSW police I have heard actually pull drivers over for sitting in the right lane for too long they don't get a fine but it would be annoying for the driver to get pull over all the time. So, majority do keep left Why, don't they do this in VIC. You see you get fine $142 for doing 63k/hm in a 60khm zone yet someone could tailgate someone in left lane for long distance when they can easily overtake in the right lane but sometimes can't because cars sitting in the right lane creating dangerous situations. VIC makes 400million's in fixed camera fines Why not increase it by enforcing some of these other laws which will decrease roadrage and dangerous driving.
