    Can you get charged with impaired by moving the grass in the ditch in front of your house with a self propelled push mower?

    I hope he gets enough to bankrupt CTV. That won't happen but hopefully it sets a precedent that annonomous accusations don't get any traction with the media. Whole thing is a joke. Society should do better than this.

    Missing boy near Orangeville...

    I don't want to judge the poor woman, she has to be in absolute agony and has to live with this for the rest of her life. But what in the fuck was she doing driving around with a three year old at 1am?

    This past summer I had a 20 lb tank filled at Costco, put it in the trunk just as I always do. The attendant came right over to the car and demanded it go in the passenger compartment. Told him to get bent and drove off, but it would seem he was right.

    Those transmission lines can leak bad, especially when it's real cold. Usually the one that goes into the bottom of the rad. Leaks where the rubber meets the steel, not necessarily rusted.

    Wife/we need a new car. What's good?

    Ah man, you didn't paint the wheel hubs. Now they're going to rust and look like shit by spring time. Sorry. That's just a pet peve of mine. Great looking car.

    The vehicles that will auto learn are great for the owners that do their own tire swaps and such. No tools needed and don't have to go to a shop. Because we have the tools to do the relearn I don't mind the GM system as I don't have to road test the car to get the light to go out.

    Not sure about the ram. On the GM it's very simple with the scan tool to setup the module to accept a lower pressure. As far as the knuckle draggers that hate the tpms system, you're probably driving beat junk that the tpms light on the dash is one of many.

    Poncho, many trucks and some cars are programmable for the target air pressure. So if you have a 3/4 ton rated for 80 psi in the rear tires you can program it to be happy with 60 or 50 or whatever. Many tire monitors don't throw a light on untill the tire is 8 or more psi down. None of them are going to over a couple pounds or even five. With low profile tires being so common, it's harder to tell visually if a tire is low. Yeah, some guys run around with pressure gauges but the reality is most don't. How often do you guys check your wife's or kids tires?

    I appreciate having the monitor. Two times in my F150 the light came on while driving, sure enough I had a nail in a tire both times. The newer systems that display the indivudual tire pressures are even better. I'm in the habit of scrolling through and checking pressures on our cars as I'm pulling out of the driveway. Drives the wife crazy, lol. My old 2007 Impala put the light on, dinging and warning message as I was pulling into the driveway one night. Sure enough, tire going flat. Gave me warning to get up early and change it in the daylight, instead of leaving with a flat I wouldn't have seen. I'm not one to circle check, lol. But yeah, when the sensors start dying it can get expensive quick. I hate having lights on the dash that shouldn't be on.

    Just watched a video of a guy doing that on a Corvette sensor. I may attempt it, nothing to loose really. If it doesn't work out I found a guy on Kijiji selling sets of four for $110 shipped.

    We reset them free of charge all the time. It takes less than a mimute. Our service advisors do it in the drive through.

    I know GM ones won't work on a Ford, but some aftermarket ones will work on both. Has anyone had luck with the ones on eBay from China? Can be had for about $60 for four. It's cheap enough I just might take a chance. Have to be careful with eBay. Many listed are "pre owned". Used sensors with new valves.

    Anyone know a good source for Ford TPMS sensors? Two are dead on my '09 F150 and I would like to change all four when I put new tires on shortly. Dealer wants $75 each, seems kinda pricy.
