    What did you do to your Ranger today? (Part Deux!)

    I played, "what's that noise?" Then I realized that it's because the truck sounds different in colder weather.

    Todays weather

    It was in the upper 40s, rainy, a little bit of small hail, thunder, lightening, and one small tornado. And since there weren't any trailer parks nearby for the tornado to destroy, it decided to rip the roof off of a barn...

    Armorall?

    There's a lot of UV and high temperatures here. I can't say cracking tires is a problem. Maybe it's due to chemical deicing.

    It looks like Home Depot has it in stock.

    I drove it to Lowes to get a new chain for the chainsaw, but they were out of stock. I'll have to figure out who makes this particular model of Craftsman chainsaw and track down a chain that will fit.

    Todays weather

    It was 73° today. A dry cold front passed through and dropped the dewpoint from 56° to 17° over several hours. The forecasted low is 49°, but that forecast goofed up the low dewpoints, so I think tomorrow morning is likely to be a bit lower than 49°.

    Support the REPAIR Act

    It depends on the vehicle and what you are repairing. Some manufacturers use proprietary diagnostic tools that aren't readily available. Right to repair is also about more than just vehicles. Most of the electronic stuff we have can be repaired, but some of the manufacturers have made it...

    Maybe it's a regional thing. Over here I hear people complaining about the wheels being too large.

    What did you do to your Ranger today? (Part Deux!)

    I drove it to work on the spare donut tire. I have a replacement tire expected to be here in several days. It's not that so many people want it. It's that it's another line item on the sticker to justify a higher price. Around here, when it comes to SUVs and trucks, the only people who...

    What did you do to your Ranger today? (Part Deux!)

    While doing the Costco, Target, Trader Joes, and off to Walmart errands in Folsom, I bumped the curb with it at about 1/8th mph and blew out the tire. My guess is that the sidewall got pinched. Wallymart was across the street, so I thought I would get a tire there. Nope! They don't carry any...

    2.3L ('02-'11) Location confusion of 2.3 Duratec PCV

    You can pry it off with a screwdriver, but it may break. Getting at the PCV valve is mildly annoying any way you do it. The is a coolant hose and I think a wiring harness that obstructs your view. It's just a really bad view and awkward angle to access it, and that is what most of the...
