RE: Tahoe Tow Vehicle Equipment Questions

I just drove a new Tahoe for quite a bit. Very impressed with solidity, quiet and ride of the vehicle. Toyota reliability was mentioned. We just traded in Toyota Matrix. We bought it new in 2007, it was well cared for and we just put a little over 50,000 miles on it, by the time we traded it in, which was Feb., 2015. We had a number of electronic issues with it and once it went off extended warranty we got rid of it. We won't be getting another Toyota.

RE: McQueen nostalgia

Every time I see a chase scene like that I'm always amazed at how many gears those cars had?? With all the double clutching of the Mustang during the chase, you'd think the Bullit Mustang didn't have any synchro mesh on any of the gears in the 4 speed standard...which of course it did. But still...the best chase scene in a movie, IMO.

RE: Dodge 6.4 hemisphere vs Chevy 6.0

Take them for a test drive and see what you like better. I personally think one would be a better choice than the other, but both are light years ahead of where trucks were just a few years ago. Well said on all points.

RE: Dodge 6.4 hemisphere vs Chevy 6.0

I think either would work for you. I would only wonder why someone would trade the Dodge, at a Chevy dealership, with only 10,000 miles on it. Jerry I think what dealers do is sometimes buy vehicles off auction, if they can get a good deal. It then has the appearance....that when a newer competitor truck in front and center on the car lot... that the competitive make...in this case Dodge...was being traded in on the dealer's line. Ahhh maybe I'm too darn cynical. ;) Les

RE: Tow Report - 2004 3/4 8.1 Suburban

The Chevy big block 'Rat' gas motor has always been a magnificent engine. A gas hog for sure...but a lot of punch.

RE: Ford Super Duty Deep Freeze Test

. Thompson, Manitoba home of Ford's cold test outside lab, is 472 miles north of the city I live in. Same province. .... Les Did you watch the video? The "cold test" lab shown is in Florida. Climate Test Lab I did. Did you listen to the video. The engineer talks about Ford's cold test area in Northern Canada. Thompson, Manitoba.

RE: Ford Super Duty Deep Freeze Test

Reason we I (and many others) installed a Espar diesel heater in the truck. Can be parked for week or 2 in the "extreme" cold, either waiting for ice roads to be completed or not having a electrical outlet to plug in. You can have that extreme cold weather.... that's just crazy! Thompson, Manitoba home of Ford's cold test outside lab, is 472 miles north of the city I live in. Same province. Twenty below, BTW, is nothing up here. Thirty below and colder is not uncommon. My son in the past 8 years has had to park his vehicles outside, daily, due to work,for at least 10 hours, sometimes 12 hours...unplugged. This is an unusual situation for many people, up here. So far, touch wood, his vehicles have always started. One was a Chevy Colorado Z 71 truck, the current one, a Jeep Patriot. I'm pleased to see Ford, along with other manufacturers, work at improving cold starting for their vehicles. The last thing you want, is to be in an isolated area, with no help around, when it is 30 below or colder and not be able to get your vehicle started. Les

RE: 2013 explorer and corrosion on hood ??

I was thinking my 2007 olds 98 had an aluminum hood. Not knowing for sure. chevman I know you're joking. After all your handle is chevman ! ;) Olds 98's left production around 1996 and Oldsmobile was shut shut down forever in 2004. If you really do have a 2007 Olds 98...don't let it go...that thing is a one of one. Barrett-Jackson would be interested. :D Les

RE: Mayberry RFD:::(humor, not mine)

The show, or the joke? The joke. And Andy wasn't single by choice. If I remember correctly he was a widower. I see.

RE: Mayberry RFD:::(humor, not mine)

I loved the Andy Griffith show. Excellent humour. One of my favourite episodes is where Barney was trying to memorize the... Preamble to the United States Constitution. He caught the difficulty of memorizing anything...very well. Made me think of a grade six class assignment where I had to memorize the The Ancient Mariner.

RE: 6.2 hauled the mail this weekend!

13's @ 97 mph in a stock pickup truck. That's both quick and fast for this kind of weight. I know the newer Chevy small block V8...the LS series...as per your truck, has established a great reputation among hot rodders. Seems to be picking where the old small block Chevy left off.

RE: Do I Need To Carry Spare Parts?

Hi. What to carry to help a void brake downs? Fan Belt(s). Anti-freeze (50/50) mix One Gallon. Transmission Fluid (2) qt. Engine Oil (2) qt. A set of wiper blades. Rags Tools And a large basket of Luck. On trailer trips I carried a lot of this stuff. I recall losing a fan belt on our tow car, a '76 Chevy with 350 V8, back in the early 90's. Was able to get it replaced. GM dealer said it was the last one in stock. Looked for a spare as we drove through Minnesota and part of Wisconsin. Finally after many stops, got one at a Napa. Put it in my emergency kit in the trunk, for possible future use. My reasoning...sometimes you can find a mechanic in a small town, but oftentimes a simple part like a fan belt and or supply consumables (vehicle fluids) may not be easily available. So I would carry stuff like the above...oh also a Clymer or Haynes vehicle shop manual. Also a socket set, an open ended wrench set, a torque wrench (simple and rugged bending beam), good flash light and breaker bar to give me extra leverage. Also a full size spare for the tow vehicle and trailer.
