Re: It's a Roller Again

The 1/4" piece that fell out of the filter was an anomaly (I think) as I cut open the filter and found no metal debris and nothing picked up by a magnet. The piece looked like a flake of carbon or rust and it crumbled when I pinched it flat between my fingers. When I drained the oil, it all looked g...

Re: Bore Scoring! Who knows for whom the bell tolls...

I work the next 30hr so won't know for sure until Tuesday. No codes or power loss untill I saw the smoke in the rearview mirror. Left side was way worse than the right and that has me worried. Screeching noise like a fan belt or baring failure. It's all pointing to a failed AOS (fingers crossed so ...
