    SOLVED! Parasitic Draw

    So the Saab has cost me a few bucks with a new alternator and battery and it keeps dying in a week or so. So I've got a parasitic draw. Using the multimeter to measure amps, I'm getting a 1.27A draw. Quickly found that my ScanGauge II left plugged into the OBD port would draw over 1.1A and it...

    Shop Vac closes shop

    Not exactly auto industry news however, a lot of us use and buy Shop Vac. Well, if you need parts, get them while you can and don't buy a Shop Vac no matter how good the deal is. Parts will become harder to find...

    Massachusetts Right to Repair

    This is very interesting regarding privacy and the data that auto makers collect via the onboard systems and one State trying to do something about it. https://www.autocare.org/government-affairs/issues/massachusetts-right-to-repair/ I raised this issue here a few years ago about OnStar's...

    LF Advice: Diablosport intune i3

    https://www.diablosport.com/shop/intune-i3-for-gm-platinum-1.html I found a new one for $400CAD (It's usually $400USD) and it comes with one vehicle credit included. Since I'm probably getting a "new" truck (an '08 Avalanche 6.0L) and I have a buddy that also has an Avalanche (a '10 5.3), I...

    Decision on new truck

    Looking at adding to the fleet. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/653719828587911/ Went to look at it. It's not perfect but it's not bad. Right at startup, could hear the right manifold leaking that quieted down after warmup. Did see the a missing bolt. Can't tell if it's just that...

    Video: How to repair fuel tank inlet

    I'm subscribed to this guy's channel because he does a lot of stuff on his Caprice PPV however, he also works on his SSR, which we all know has a lot of similarities to the GMT360/370.

    YT: 4200 turbo build

    I know a couple of guys asked about turbos. This one is just the install but not tuned yet but interesting how he does it. Not for keeping it all under the hood though.

    Steering controls on Android HU

    So I got a new Android 10 HU for the TB. I never had any luck getting the steering wheel controls on any of my trucks that came with them, even with adapters. However, my 07 LS did not come with them. I recently replaced the entire steering column so that I could have the switches. A...

    Recall: HF Pittburgh jack stands

    I just received an email from HF about this recall because I have bought four of the 6 ton version. And I had just used them recently too. Since we don't have HF in Canada, what am I supposed to do with them? The closest one is in Pottsdam NY and the border is still closed for at least another...

    Working from home? Check your insurance!

    After seeing US TV commercials from some insurance companies giving rebates and discounts because of our current situation, I checked on my insurance's website and, nothing. There have also been complaints that insurance companies are just raking it in because they haven't lowered premiums and...

    Eco friendly oil container

    So why is this ETCG oil change video so special? Just the container that the oil comes in just makes sense. The plastic jugs we're so familiar with are not recyclable and wind up in the landfill. The cardboard is recyclable and the plastic bag inside is much smaller. I can see this becoming...

    Video: What are accessories worth in HP?

    Was YT surfing when this one popped up. Very interesting to see what each accessory on the motor does to HP and torque numbers. The fan may be a bigger power robber, especially the thermal type, and may lend some credence to e-fans but are marginal on the GMT360 platform due to the chintzy...

    https://www.thethings.com/sports-cars-gm-regrets-making-and-ones-they-regret-discontinuing/ Interesting read although an opinion of the author only. He also flubbed on the 1978 Chevelle SS as there was no such car. There was a 1977 Chevelle Laguna S3 but no SS. Research fail on that one.
