  1. No remaining oil life report!

    3G Electronics, Audio, and Lighting
    Maybe I'm just old school but I'm a firm believer in 5,000 mile oil changes if using a quality blend or full synthetic, 7500 miles if using a higher end oil, or 10,000 miles if replacing filter and topping off oil at 5,000 miles with a higher end oil. Now Amsoil is whole different basket of...
  2. Anyone installed oil catch can on 1.6?

    3G Engine and Technical Discussion
    These engines have a bad coking problem on the valves since fuel does not spray on them to clean them off. Interested a CC myself but haven't had the time yet.
  3. Anyone noted this?

    3G Electronics, Audio, and Lighting
    It's from the heat, one would not think it but that little bulb can make a lot of heat in a tight space like a housing. To help mitigate this issue, use some dielectric grease on the base of bulb and on those edges....on all bulbs that are not LED. I have seen many 3157 bulb sockets...
  4. What do you do with "extra" oil?

    3G Engine and Technical Discussion
    I pour it all in and roll. 3/10 of a quart ain't gonna hurt nothing! Just a little extra oil in the event you're out hot-footing it, to absorb dirt, and to help the engine oil stay .000001 degree cooler lol. Also to account for any oil loss between changes.
  5. Custom painted headlights!

    3G DIY Garage
    If I could pony up the money for the rest of the stuff I need for projectors I'd tear apart the headlights and do a dual projector retrofit and paint the headlights. Have the Morimoto projectors....and that's about it lol.
  6. Custom painted headlights!

    3G DIY Garage
    How hard were they to open? What temp? More details :)
  7. What type wax are you using?

    3G Exterior and Interior
    Collinite Insulator Wax
  8. Intake Valve Cleaner

    3G Engine and Technical Discussion
    I am not concerned enough to pull the intake on my 1.6 yet. I also switched to Pennzoil Platinum(used it since it has came out on other vehicles), figure a full synthetic will significantly cut down on those hydrocarbons and less chance of coking/sludging inside of the hot turbocharged engine.
  9. Anyone attempt an air ride setup on there escape?

    3G Wheels, Tires, Brakes, and Suspension
    Have you checked airride technologies? They may have something bolt in that will do the trick. If they have nothing listed I'd call them.
  10. Subwoofer

    3G Electronics, Audio, and Lighting
    For $700 you can upgrade the entire stereo and get a nice Infinity self contained subwoofer unit that can be hidden under a front seat or elsewhere in the cabin.
  11. Fender Bender and new parts

    3G Exterior and Interior
    Yeah everyone was fine, just my wife's pride was a bit sore but it's ok now. And even more fortunately the kiddo wasn't with her, he wouldn't have gotten hurt but it would have scared him, and the impact was maybe 15mph so if there had to be a wreck, I couldn't ask for better circumstances. It...
  12. Fender Bender and new parts

    3G Exterior and Interior
    So the wife had a little fender bender(more of a bumper destroyer, fenders are fine). Wiped out the front bumper on the left side, got the intercooler, radiator, drivers headlight, and fog/turn signal. So I talked with the bodyshop today, he's going to see about getting the smooth black...
  13. Dealer used 5W30 in 2.0 Ecoboost - Wrong?

    3G Engine and Technical Discussion
    I do my own because I was a tech. for 5 years. I saw what some guys did, I also saw more tech.'s who were stand up, did the job right, and sweated the small stuff even though it was someone else's vehicle. However, even though there are typically more tech.'s that do the right thing, that...
  14. Halogen Projectors: Yay or Nay?

    3G Electronics, Audio, and Lighting
    IMO buy a set of stockers, have someone sandblast the chrome off of them, paint to match your color, install a good high quality HID retrofit projector kit like those found on theretrofitsource.com, and go that route. More money, but much better performance and light. If you really want to go...
  15. What Else Sits In Your Driveway ?

    Off Topic Section
    The wife's 2013 Escape. I just sold my 98 Dodge Dakota gladly/unfortunately I loved it but it was time for it to go, I want something we can go adventuring in. Bought a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0 Limited with Quadrive system. Going to be ditching the "AWD" transfer case in favor of a manual...
  16. Audi Allroad 2.7 Vs Escape 2.0

    Ford Escape Versus the Competition
    I think there will be a different outcome. The turbo on the Escape does spool quick but I think that Allroad could still take it, especially if you boost launch it. Even boost launching both of them.
  17. LED question

    3G Electronics, Audio, and Lighting
    If it is a 194 style bulb, the little metal contacts on the bulb can be bent to the otherside of the bulb as well so you can turn it whichever way you need....for future issues.
  18. Protecting Door panels from kicks.

    3G Exterior and Interior
    I want a 2wd 72 Blazer so bad.
  19. Audi Allroad 2.7 Vs Escape 2.0

    Ford Escape Versus the Competition
    Should've had a V8....lol, see what I did there? ? ? DO YOU SEE IT?!?!?!?!?!
  20. Exterior LED replacing. Work in progress

    3G Electronics, Audio, and Lighting
    I think they can be had cheaper at other places, and probably better quality.
