Well, smartalec, if you change oil every 3000 miles and it was burning it, a quart is a big deal but if you change it every 10000 miles and it burns a quart between, not so much.

Don't engines still use a PCV valve (positive crankcase ventilation)? A plugged PCV valve literally sucks the motor oil into the cylinder.

I hate that! The edges aren't tall enough and pop bottles fall out in sharp turns.

Yeah probably. Smells like it too.


I also hate my mirrors with a passion. It's like they were built for a geo metro.

I hate that I cant aim my headlights because the adjuster bolts are too awkward for any of my tools to get at.

Cans and cups (Fast food and such) is no problem. But heaven forbid you want a capped bottle beverage

Exactly. I can't understand how a drink from a fast food place can stay perfectly in place but a plastic soda or water bottle goes flying when making a slow turn.
