05.22.2014Today: David wants Tom and Ray to set the record straight on some bizarre driving behavior from the past. In high school, he used to cruise around with his friend in the friend's dad's '73 lime green Ford Pinto. The dad insisted that the kid use first and third gears on odd numbered days and second and fourth on the even numbered days, which he insisted would double the life of the transmission. Where does this fall on the scale of one to completely BoOoOoOgus?
in Tom & RayJim needs to change the transmission fluid in his 2005 Chrysler 300C, but he's a little nervous about it. The last time he got this done (on his previous car) the transmission went out a week later. Tom and Ray explain the different methods and try to reassure Jim that the fluid change was not responsible for the demise of his last car.
