That is ridiculous though. How about the new Jeeps that require removing the front wheel to access the oil filter...unreal.
My Stealth, you had to put it on a lift and drop the engine to change the plugs. At least that's what my mechanic said when I freaked out about 500+$ for plugs and wires 20 years ago.

I put a catch can oil separator on my car today to prevent carbon build up on the intake valves. I also CRC'ed the intake from the throttle body. Supposedly direct injected engines get carbon buildup on the valves from pcv gases. Regular fuel additives don't help since the gas doesn't flow over the valves. What a smoke show. It smelled like a filthy shotgun too. I've Sea foamed all my vehicles down the throat in the past, same process.

I put a new digital brake controller in the truck today to go with the new do-all construction trailer. Then I managed to back it down the curved drive to our big garage/shop behind the house. Now I know I can get it back there and into bay 3 and 4 if I need to.
