I use silicone spray. I apply the spray to a paper towel and rub it on the door and trunk weatherstripping. I don't use it under the hood, because I don't want the vapors to find their way into the...

I agree that most gasoline additives are snake oil, but I think there are a couple of exceptions.

Sometimes the wrench may be slipping a bit. You can wrap some sandpaper around the filter, grit side towards the filter. Then put the wrench over the sandpaper.

I would leave it alone, since you don't need to remove it for your new gas cap. I took a look at mine as best I could. Use a flashlight if necessary. It appears that the rubber piece behind the...

I think you need a minimum number of posts before the edit button appears, but I don't know what that minimum number is.

Edit: Or maybe a Camaro ate the button.

Nuke, I'm not following you as to a chronic water leak causing the PCM to fail. The PCM is located under the hood, next to the fuse/relay box. Maybe you were thinking SJB.

I think the math got messed up along the way.

Let's say you start out with 12 mm. The pads should be replaced when you get to 3 mm. So you have 9 mm of usable pad.

I don't have specific information for your car. If someone could post that, go for it. I would replace the pads at 3 mm. The original thickness was probably about 13 mm or maybe a bit less.
