Returned home after a 1200 mile trip etc. Hopped back into car to run to the store, and the low oil light was on. Hmm didn't check anything before I left or before i was returning. Added a quart and a half (don't ask if I rechecked it ) Then picked up an oil change to do tonight.

3800'* are durable.

"and the low oil light was on"

Been there, common on the 3.8L. We sometimes take our 3.8L engines for granite.

I think I'll just get one of the bigger mobile compressors. It'll pay for itself.
i agree everyone that works on cars has to have a compressor but just comparing tool to tool i have a decent pneumatic impact and the battery one will do just as much on everything Ive tried so far.

Hey, I was just giving you a hard time. That thing is about half the price of the setup I want, I just need the higher torque of air.

So who wants to play the game "Guess how long before Brian kills his Tranny" It neutral drops by itself quite a few times per day already.
