OK, if you press shift on your keyboard while clicking on the link, it would open it in a new page :)
That opens it in a new window, not a new tab.

Control will work though. Those key strokes are basically what the right mouse click is doing.

2018 Dodge Challenger: What kind of oil does a 2018 Dodge Challenger use?

The 2018 Dodge Challenger has four different engine sizes available to choose from, depending on the trim of choice. The Challengers with a 3.6 liter engine, GT, SXT and SXT Plus use 5W-20 or 0W-20 oil. While the R/T and the T/A are 5.7 liter eight cylinder engines, they use the same oil type as the previous three trims, just at a higher capacity. The Challenger SRT Demon and the SRT Hellcat are 6.2 liter engines. Larger still are the R/T 392, the SRT 392 and the T/A 392 at 6.4 liters. Despite the slight different engines size between these five models, they all use 0W-40 oil.
Why not 0W-20?

That is exactly what I said: new page means new window :)
Are you saying: "Why didn't you hear what I meant to say"? :LOL:

Toyota is conducting a safety recall involving certain Toyota and Lexus vehicles

This recall includes the kitchen sink.

TORONTO, ON – January 13, 2020 – Toyota is conducting a safety recall involving certain 2018-2019 Model Year Lexus GS 350 AWD, LX 570, and RX 350/350L; certain 2019 Lexus LS 500, LC 500, RC 300 AWD/350 AWD, IS 300 RWD, ES 350, GX 460, and NX 300; certain 2018-2019 Toyota Highlander, Sienna, Tundra, Sequoia, Tacoma and 4Runner; and certain 2019 Toyota Corolla, Camry and Avalon in Canada. Approximately 54,687 vehicles are involved in this recall.
The subject vehicles are equipped with a fuel pump which may stop operating. If this were to occur, warning lights and messages may be displayed on the instrument panel, and the engine may run rough. This can result in a vehicle stall, and the vehicle may be unable to be restarted. If a vehicle stall occurs while driving at higher speeds, this could increase the risk of a crash.
A Lexus with a bad fuel pump, imagine that.

TIRE & WHEEL OWNER’S MANUAL

Step 1: To remove your old wheels and tires, break the lug nuts or bolts loose before raising the vehicle. We recommend using hand tools exclusively . When removing or installing lug nuts or bolts, never use powered impact wrenches of any type. It is best to carefully remove lugs with a four-way wrench or a socket on a breaker bar. An impact wrench may damage the lugs or the studs.
Once you have completed your test fit*, we suggest removing the wheel and applying a thin coating of anti-seize around the axle hubs to help prevent rust and permit easier removal when it’s time to rotate your tires. Do not apply anti-seize compound to the lug hardware or studs.
* When using new or unknown rims.

Step 8: Proper installation requires that the wheel lug torque be set to the recommended specification for your vehicle. These torque specifications can be found in your vehicle’s owner’s manual, shop repair manual or obtained from your vehicle dealer. Finish tightening the lugs down with an accurate torque wrench. Use a crisscross sequence (see diagrams) until they have reached their proper torque value. Be careful because if you over-torque a wheel you can strip a lug nut, stretch or break a wheel stud, and cause the wheel, brake rotor and/or brake drum to distort. NOTE: After installing new wheels you should re-torque your lug hardware after the first 50 to 100 miles of driving. This is necessary because as the wheels are breaking in they may compress slightly allowing their lugs to lose some of their torque. Simply repeat the same torque procedure listed above.
Wheels are almost never installed properly by a Shop. It's a rush job to get the next vehicle on the hoist.
I have seen Costco install them properly though. Likely they follow their Company Policy which would be based on what wheel manufacturers and tire manufacturers say to do.

Another TireRack site on the subject: https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tiretech/techpage.jsp?techid=99

Beware of impact wrenches:
  • damage the stainless steel caps on the lug nuts, especially when loosening.
  • overtighten
  • undertighten, especially when torque sticks are used
  • they are the "rush job's" tool of choice.

Are they total ignorants or just plain stupid? Doesn't matter what people want (T&C) but what they decide to do...

Ready for another trip to Mexico
Have a safe and enjoyable trip :)

We are under an extreme cold weather alert and a snow system is moving into GTA 😢 1 cm per hour up to 20 cm

They are advising on TV to stay inside but who's listening? I am sure lots of cars are already out there...
Yesterday, they were showing people buying winter tires... so smart, eh?

@Jeepman, I hope that you are not buried in snow like your neighbours in Newfoundland ;)

I writing this from my igloo. It's warmer in here. :)

Yesterday we had a lot of wind with light snow. It was nasty and real nasty driving on the open highway with the Jeep. There are some small drifts and lots of bare ground as well. No comparison with what they got in Newfoundland. All that snow to move and power outages = state of emergency there.

We are getting some nasty weather beginning overnight and into Sunday. Alerts for: Halifax Metro and Halifax County West - Environment Canada

Hope your storm today isn't too severe.

Should be some good discounts on winter tires now. Bout time some some people replaced theirs. :)

PS: Notice how LEVY treats his seat belts? :)
