    Never known anyone to change an anode rod. Average tank life seems to be about 10 years so the original rod is usually good for the life of the tank. I suppose water quality would impact those things though. Hey!..Your new tank will give you one less thing to worry about for a...

    Did you want salt on that XUV ?

    The new trend here is that a lot of people get the annual rust preventative treatment and unlike the old treatments(Ziebart,etc.) this stuff really works. Had my JGC done when I first got it. I don't know if we use more salt than most but, now usage is driven by the lawyers not the weather. My...

    Do envoy headlights fit the Isuzu Ascender

    The tail lights will physically fit but, since Envoy BU lights are in the bumper and yours are in the tail light you would have to modify the wiring which is not a big deal but, you will lose BU lights if that's important. Actually the rage was to put Ascender tails on Envoys,I did it on the...

    2008 Trailblazer Atlas Engine Noise

    Sounds like a rod. I would drain the oil and check for metallic flakes/residue.

    I cant figure this one out... (Envoy Denali)

    Yes!...that and the paint over the rust bubbles was the red flag for me. If you're not going to take the time to do the obvious stuff right, what the hell did the do inside the engine ?

    I cant figure this one out... (Envoy Denali)

    When does a 5.3 with AFM delete become an LSX ? lots of fuzzy arithmetic going on there. For that money I'd be thinking TB SS. As good as it looks it could be a maintenance nightmare, the sales pitch about the process is scary....:quiverlips:

    What are you doing today?

    Plastic headlights have no place on a tractor IMHO. Mine had gone from condensation to a permanent haze so I thought that I would convert to sealed beam glass units that have no way for moisture to enter. H4666 & H4668 lights are the perfect size and have HI/LO filaments. I chose to fab up a...

    Decision on new truck

    Being in the rust belt like yourself if it were me I would be targeting the lower 48 for a rust free example. I'll do the mechanical stuff but, rust is the worst. After seeing the spare tire frame on your Saab.......ya know....:deadhorse:
