Re: Oil Choices for the Honda V6 - & Filters

Pennzoil blend is 40-50 % mix. I donít believe any brand is 90syn/10 Dino. Unless it costs 90% of full syn.

Re: 2003 Vue 3.0 L81 question...

yes. and the cam sprocket bolts are torx. and the cam bearing cap bolts are male torx. vs female torx. you have to remove cams to remove the headbolts. doing the heads on the 3.0 is tedious for sure

Re: Wheel bearings

just assume it does have abs. and do not use the sensor if it does not. i do not think there is a big price difference
better to have it and not need it vs needing it and not having it

Re: Oil in plug well.

well, when you use a pic to pry out the bits of the old gasket and they snap into pieces you know they are cheap quality parts. a rubber gasket should not snap/break/shatter as you remove it.
