    AC Delco PF46E vs PF46

    Might be the dumbest question ever, but is the 46e just as good of an oil filter as the stock 46?

    New rubber

    I had those too (AWD), no complaints and they looked sharp. Honestly tho, I had no probs with the stock goodyears and they lasted way longer than the Kumhos.

    Mystery Coolant leak

    Yeah, might be the waterpump. I had this issue and I thought the res was defective so I bought a new one. It still leaked, so I thought the cap was defective...then I thought the hose was defective... lol. I finally took it to my mech and the waterpump proved to be my issue. and by "bought a new one," I meant got one from the yard

    Coolant Reservoir Leak

    It turns out that the o ring on the lid was he prob. I guess the lid regulates the pressure in the tank, and the o ring lets out pressure through that tube if it gets too hot. the o ring wore out and the pressure that built up in my res tank needed a way out, and (what i think) my tank already was defective and the pressure made things worse. I got a tank from the yard (good call homie, u saved me $40) and bought a new cap and things have been runnin smooth (knock on wood)
  8. The res is supposed to be sealed air tight, right? The side (closest to the passenger) seems to have a crack, as if the mold detached there. when the engine heats up, you can hear the air pressure release from the crack, and im assuming thats where the leak starts. Anyone else have this problem? I only have 54k miles on my stock ss, makes no sense for this to happen. I glanced at the hoses to see if theyre damaged, but they seem to be free of coolant leakage. Should I just purchase a new res? thanks guys

    Are Kumho STX tires any good?

    5k miles on these tires, and really nothing good to mention. The tires feel real tight in sharp turns. i wouldnt get these again.

    Are Kumho STX tires any good?

    I read that the tires (the Kumhos) are very loud in high speeds. Im getting a set for $507, so i hope its not too bad. Any updates on these? Is the noise too loud? I coulda had a set of pirelli strs for roughly the same price, but the tire maing said that the Kumhos have a better speed rating.
