Shh! Don't give people the idea that it doesn't rain here all the time! They might want to move here, and Seattle does NOT need any more newcomers!

He moved to Kalama, WA. The problem is likely that his rotors are probably super rusty because of the incessant rain pouring down 24/7.

No doubt you know this,...

There is no oil sump gasket, you use a special sealer.

Based on what has happened, I also wouldn't let your friend tighten the bolts that hold the sump on, because he'll strip those, too. Then...

Could something have gotten on the rotors and pads? If it were me, I'd pull the pads, sand the surface of them, and use brake cleaner to rinse them off. Then I'd do the same thing to the rotors,...

Why do I get ads showing shapely women in tight dresses? Not that I mind, of course, but I don't do any dress shopping. Or shapely woman shopping, either!

The other ads are for Puerto Vallarta...

Ignore the ads. You don't HAVE to read them. Do you watch every ad on TV, or listen to every ad on the radio? I've developed the ability to tune that stuff out many years ago, it's not that hard to...

My 151,000 mile car does not have perfect paint (although it is in remarkably good shape), especially the front bumper cover. That makes it easy to not sweat too much about how it looks. If the paint...
