RE: My wife is gonna kill me, please help

I’m sorry that your wife is going to kill you ;). I can’t help because that would be illegal, but I know someone she can call for help :B

RE: Had our catalytic converter stolen

Beware of any of the companies that sell replacements online especially if they're across the country and wants to sell you new replacements cheap. They will fit but if you have to have a smog check the printed numbers on the converter might show up as not an approved unit for the state in which you live. Just went to storage Thursday to pick mine up to leave for a trip Friday morning. Started it up and and knew right away my cat was gone. Contacted the storage management and they said several have been reported. Referred me to a muffler shop, went in a 7:30 the next morning was out of there by 8:00 and $1700 poorer. Gee… maybe they had one that was an “exact” match right down to the rough cuts. :B

RE: Outrageous CA registration fee!

The basic reason most people like to bash California is simply JEALOUSY!

RE: Big black bugs crawling across road

Saw a similar thing on CA 95 south of Needles CA in the Mojave. About 40 miles of millions of caterpillars crossing the road all headed west. Made a mess on the front of the trailer.

RE: Towing with a 2022 Ford 150 3.5 EcoBoost

I’ve been towing my 8000# (scale weight) trailer since 2013 with my HDPP F150 Eco. Payload is 2560#. Many many miles in the mountain west and I have never had an issue with engine braking being insufficient. I down shift early keeping RPM in the 4000 range and have never experienced beyond moderate use of the service brakes. Now mileage, it sucks. At 60 MPH it’s 8 to 9 calculated because the lieometer is always 1 to 1 1/2 higher. LOL Bare mixed mileage rarely exceeds 14. I think the combination of LT tires and 3.73 diff kills it.

RE: Stabilizer blocks alternatives

Here’s a pic of my 5-7-9 blocks (depending on which way you turn them). They are hollow and have minimal internal framing so they are light.

RE: Truck upgrade?

I wouldn’t worry about the RPM. The engineers test these engines at redline RPM for hours and even days at a time. The set the redline at a safe value from those tests. In addition, the ECU will not let you exceed the redline. Just hammer it!

RE: 2013 Ecoboost overheating

My ‘13 Ecoboost HDPP did the same over heat when towing my 8000” trailer up 6% grades. Previously I had towed up long grades twice as steep without issue. Changed thermostat and issue resolved. Change the cap also as they fail with age. I’m on my second replacement. Loss of pressure results in considerably lower boiling point.

RE: Why do I keep blowing out tires on my truck?

Possible that the RR brake Is “hanging” and causing excessive heat in the tire.

RE: New Puppy Heart Murmur-Decision Made (at end)

If you choose to take the alternate puppy, the most likely thing this honest with you breeder will do is to put the puppy down. He will not likely try to sell it to another buyer.

You never know when it might happen

I went to move my equipment trailer. If it's just a short move, I just hook the safety chains to the bucket on the tractor and pull it along with the chains (unloaded of course). When I got it to the location, I noticed that one of the chains was unhooked. Here is what I found. Now this is a 17 year old trailer and I replaced both hooks, but I'm glad I found out before I really needed the safety chains.

RE: 2013 Ram 6.7 With Some Motor Issues

The clattering could be a number of things. It could be as small as having lower quality fuel to your HPFP being out of wack as ScottG stated. Cetane ratings in fuel do affect the sound of the engine. You could throw a bottle of cetane booster or another additive with cetane booster in it to see if the noise goes away. If it does then it is likely the fuel and I would try getting it somewhere else next time. If not, then you know you have another issue. CA has a minimum cetane rating of 53. Not likely that it is a problem.

RE: GRRR Ford Dealer - 2022 SD

Don't be so quick to throw the salesman under the bus. Orders are not placed by the salespeople -- they're placed by management. A little common sense tells you that a salesman doesn't get paid until the vehicle is delivered, so where's his incentive to see that it goes anywhere but to his retail buyer? I notice on this forum that people jump on salesmen a lot, and deem them mostly dishonest. Spending 30 years in the automobile business prior to retiring and going into Real Estate in 2012 showed me otherwise.What's your impression of realtor honesty? My daughter has a low opinion. She has had bad experience after bad experience with realtors. On her recent home purchase the realtor and inspector seemed to be in cahoots and tried everything possible to get her to sign a new contract with less advantageous terms than the one already in place. And now she's found additional rain damage from the bad roof (it was sold as is) that the inspector didn't "find."You do realize that a realtor doesn't work for the buyer right? They work for the seller who pays themfrom the sale proceeds, and signed a contract with them, before any buyer is even on the scene. You need to educate yourself. Have you ever heard of a "buyer's agent"? A Realtor can act in a capacity for a buyer OR a seller. As a buyer's agent, the Realtor represents the buyer's interests exclusively. There, your lesson for the day. You're welcome:C ... for a price ! No, that's not how it works. When I act as a buyer's agent, the buyer pays me NOTHING. When the sale is made, I get paid at closing as the buyer's agent, typically half of the total commission -- half goes to the seller's agent and half to the buyer's agent -- the total commission amount being paid by the seller. Whew, I'm doing a lot of educating today. I'm tired! :B Are you implying that the buyers agent is in cahoots with the sellers agent to assure that they receive a commission no matter how it affects the buyer? Seems that way.

RE: The Home Depot is my new Amazon

Recently I needed some stain for my fence. I could drive 10 miles to HD and pay $29.99 for a gallon…. Or, have then deliver it to my door 2 day later for no additional cost. Which way should I go  :?
