    2.3L ('02-'11) Ok so my injectors have no filters either?

    Ok so wtf... not only do these injectors not use a pintle cap, but they obviously dont use a filter either? I ordered the rebuild kit and the O-rings are right but it also came with the baskets yet... low and behold, there aint no filter baskets on these things? Is this normal? Never seen...

    Have you ever actually needed a spare tire?

    It just dawned on me that in all my years of driving I cannot remember a single time I actually needed to use a spare tire. I've gotten flats but never had a blowout while driving that required me to pull over and put the spare on. It's always been that lovely scenario when you go outside to...
