    Went to get a quart of ATF at wally world and check on oil prices. 90+% of the oil was either synthetic or semi synthetic. Guess I'll go back to Menard's. 9-$15 for filters? I might have a spare in my stash. Checked the transmission fluid with the car running and it didn't read on the stick that I could see. Remembered that the tube was cut to fit so the low mark is actually at the pan rail. Not running its plenty full.

    The factory battery in my last car was eight years old when it died. Replaced the one in my "new" car to be safe at five years. Can't open anything but the driver's door without the battery. No manual release on the hatchback. Had to get the new battery out of the trunk through the back seat. Have to take the battery box apart and remove the air box and part of the fuse panel just to get the battery out so don't want to wait to be stuck somewhere. Not sure if it can even be jump started with no access to the battery.

    I was looking at my Die Hard Platinum batteries that still work great in two of the cars. One was bought July 2008 and one April 2011. Will replace with Die Hards again when needed!

    Took the battery in under two year warrantee. Got a free replacement. FREE. It pays to buy online/credit card. It is a Die Hard and not auto craft or whatever.

    Pondering how my battery tender got unplugged. Battery is dead and having a hard time getting it to charge. Swap meet is this weekend and vacation starts Saturday. Curious as to how many people will show up. Its in town at least.

    Pondering how a 2 liter four cylinder supposedly takes six quarts of oil. That's more than the displacement.

    They finally got the check after two weeks and just before I went to the office to write them a new one.

    I think my retro encabulator needs a good cleansing. After 2020, it seemed like it was spam free. Now it looks non-responsive, and shows admin privilege seeking behavior. Maybe if I poke it with a stick it will circum-vocabulate. I'm waiting for the halogen fluid to dry. I don't want to have to repack the muffler bearings.

    In Wisconsin we can pay fees online or in person. Counter fee for in person is $5.00. If you pay on line with a CC there is a convenience fee of 2.98. If you pay by ACH from Checking or savings acct., there is No Fee. I do all my vehicles via ACH from home, have the tags/stickers within about 5 days.
    Any Collector car (older than 20 yrs currently) is a one time-life time registration for person registering it.

    Pondering why heat doesn't work right on Ranger PU. Changed the door motor in the glove box and now the tee that diverts coolant in and out of the heater core. Also looses antifreeze and can't figure out where. Ran it for quite a while trying to get heat to come out only to figure out the exhaust is plugged up. Really surprised its not rotted out after 23 years. Oh and the floor drain in the garage over flowed again.
