I didn't catch what he changed at first either, but look at the title bar above his post. Oil breather filter.

Finally got a chance to really stretch her legs today after sitting for most of the winter except for some short trips. She performed flawlessly and I couldn't wipe that grin off my face every time I'd look in the rear view and see the other cars getting smaller and smaller :p

I know she needs a wash, but this darn snow in NYC is crazy. Glad my Conti's DWS are awesome!
That's crazy, what car actually goes to 50.

What shop did you got to?

They do that crap all the time. I never trust anyone with my air pressure because I have had that experience too many places, including the Mercedes dealership here in Columbia (they are crap though, so isn't saying much).
**Some low profile tires will ask for that much psi.

I'm proud to say i can now comment in here, since I finally bought a 2005 4.4i last night. First thing I did was the infamous light level sensor arm fix. I don't even understand how the previous owners could handle the lights adjusting non-stop while driving. Anyhow, fixed and awesome now. rear fog dead spots to turn into brake lights, very soon.
I swear, my cars are like a girlfriend.
Sometimes its a rough ride, sometimes its smooth motorin'.
Sometimes she doesnt like how i treat her and sometimes i dont like how she behaves.
BUT at the end of the day, she loves it when I am inside her.

Gentlemen. How do I replace the interior red night lights that points to the center dash and also on the door release lever on the door? I tried looking into the thick repair manual that I bought but it doesn't say anywhere in there. I also want to know how to replace the lights under the exterior side view mirrors. All these light bulbs are weak and needs replacement. Please let me know how. Thanks guys!
