  1. I've always liked carquest filters and like napa they used to be manufactured by Wix. They are now manufactured by Mann-Hummel who owns Wix and Purolator. This is for light duty but once you go into heavy duty the carquest filters are made by baldwin. You can buy them at any advance auto parts and carquest stores. www.carquestfilters.com
  2. That's a 12v toyota prius water pump. What year is it?

  4. Interesting article from http://www.aftermarketnews.com/will-self-driving-cars-boost-the-auto-repair-industry/ While there’s some debate about when self-driving cars will become commonplace – and precisely how they’ll be used by consumers – it’s fair to say that self-driving vehicles are coming. When they arrive, they will likely cause changes across society. When it comes to changes in the auto repair industry, there’s reason to believe that self-driving cars will lead to overall growth. Here’s why: 1. More Vehicles On The Road If the most optimistic projections for self-d
  5. That's a plastic push pin that usually comes from the manufacturer as part of the assembly. Whats the year, make, and model of the vehicle? I'm not sure if the dealer would sell it separately, you would need to look at the schematic, probably only as the complete unit. Might need to get the entire latch assembly. You could look through the Dorman hardware catalog and see if you can match something up that's close then search for the dorman part number: https://www.dormanproducts.com/flipbook/dorman/automotive-hardware/2006-Automotive-Hardware.pdf

  7. I don't know what that is, it might be a housing or part of the release bearing. Do you have a parts schematic you can refer to?
  8. Looks like a fuse or relay cover mounted on the driver's side under the hood by the strut mount. Can you take a wider photo and see if that's a plastic cover that comes off? What are you looking to replace?

  10. The cold weather is definitely helping battery sales! http://www.kfyrtv.com/content/news/Car-battery-sales-up-due-to-cold-weather-467572473.html BISMARCK, N.D. - It happens a lot this time of year. You go out to start your car in the morning and the battery is dead. The staff at O'Reilly auto parts in Bismarck say sales have spiked for car batteries, fuel additives, and anything else people need to keep going in winter, which comes in handy for a lot of people. "I came up here from Florida some years back. I never had those kinda issues, but here in Bismarck I've de
  11. "Mad Money" host Jim Cramer tracked the recent weakness in three auto parts stocks and argued that the market overreacted to their shortfalls. O'Reilly Automotive, Advance Auto Parts and AutoZone all sold off earlier this year on worries that Amazon would disrupt their industry. But after a recent wave of positive earnings results, Cramer said the stocks could be picking up speed. The midwinter bounce in auto parts stocks O'Reilly Automotive, Advance Auto Parts and AutoZone did not go unnoticed by CNBC's Jim Cramer. "First AutoZone and O'Reilly bounced from their lows over
  12. Balance sheet problems should concern AutoZone stock owners AutoZone, Inc. (NYSE:AZO) beat high expectations going into earnings. For the first quarter of 2018, AZO earnings came in at $9.96-per-share, 15 cents above estimates. Revenue came in at $2.59 billion, $50 million higher than expected — a 4.9% year-over-year increase. However, AZO stock still faces some notable challenges. For example, same-store sales within the U.S. only rose 2.3%. Given the recent stock price increase and finance-related issues, current investors should treat this run-up in AZO stock as an opportunit
  13. I always change my cabin filter every spring because I have allergies, helps tremendously to keep the car cabin free from pollen. Its amazing that back in the day you could get in teh car and all they ever smelled like was cigarette smoke. Climate control has come a long way. You can even get carbon activated filters.
  14. These have been flooding the market in all different brands. As a DIYer it's pretty cool but a little more money and you can buy a scan tool. However, I'd be interested in how much value the app brings which would be the differentiation. Will it just tell you a code or can you see other data? Here's an article about it https://www.tomsguide.com/us/fixd-car-sensor-faq,news-25213.html This part is interesting...
