      I agree, I switched to a good quality oil and did the change myself, instead of taking the car to a quick lube place, and the white moisture under the oil fill went away.

                  When you run the AC while driving, and the park your vehicle does it suppose to leak water underneath?

                    Yep. No worries. That condensation is supposed to happen. If you're the nervous type, take a piece of plain white paper and set it on the water. Make sure the fluid is clear (or very close to it if you're parked on an oily surface) and that it isn't trans fluid, coolant, or oil. Water=100% normal (just like the water that drips from a window unit AC).

                        I miss car talk. Your channel helps fill in that gap. If you pass away, who would you suggest I subscribe to for automotive tips and knowledge? If you are addressing to do so now, could you at least specify it in your will?

                          I am thankful that my 1998 Subaru Legacy wagon has a fuel filter under the hood. That was one of the first things I changed on the car and had 164000 miles 5 years ago now it's up to 204000 miles. I'm the second owner of the car and I'd also like to do a video on it but I just never got around to it

Would this be a better choice than the a is250 also with a manual transmission and 150k km. I've heard that they have gdi problems in the newer engines.

                                                                Hey I got a question. I have a 2000 Cadiliac deville Dhs. I replaced the fuel pump and the starter and replaced the radiator. But when I start my car it will shake. Then cut off. But after I restart the car. It starts right up and drives fine. What is going on. And it also tells me. Service electrical system.
