    I may be misunderstanding your statement, but why have most manufacturers moved to 6 speed automatics or infinite ratio CVT's to increase fuel economy If higher gear ratios don't matter? Also if I'm...

    Which would come with a minor increase in highway mpg, and a moderate reduction in noise on the highway in 5th. Both worth it.

    I like savagegeese reviews. Funny and fair. Watch the one on PT Cruiser if you get a chance.

    Ok, so it will have a new, non-slipping clutch. Not sure that will fix the issue of not wanting to go into first gear. I would think if the clutch were the cause, it would have issue going into all...

    Alrighty then. I stick by my theory of "it's physics/transfer of energy", but I shall quietly watch for another explanation. So far I like Fummins theory, but he hasn't explained where he got the...

    I use the 0W-20, but I'm all about the most mpg, which I think that oil does best in lower engine friction/resistance. But many on here run 5W-30 with no problems. Was just curious about your...
