    A jewish Joke (oy vey!) Two astronauts land on Mars. Their mission: to check whether there is oxygen on the planet. "Give me the box of matches", says one. "Either it burns and there is oxygen, or nothing happens." He takes the box, and is ready to strike a match when, out of the blue, a...
  3. Will the new Cadillac Lambda hurt the Enclave's Sales and Popularity?

    In response to Bad and Kids: I have a 2012 SRX Luxury with no extras...it cost me $41,000, which is book price. I think the Base model is about $36,000. The Performance model, with Navigation, runs about $50,000. I hope this helps settle the price issue. Now, why did I buy an SRX? As I've stated...
  4. Gas Prices

    As of Sunday, here in Brooklyn and Staten Island, N.Y., the going price for regular is $3.99, but I have seen some stations at $4.07, and one for $4.15. Like I've said before, in Europe the going price is from $10 to $12 a gallon (3 Euros a liter). No wonder the Europeans don't drive that much.

    It's so sad. So much talent, too. I hope she's found some rest after such a troubled life. God bless her, please.

    Anthony had just finished reading a new book entitled, "You Can Be THE MAN Of Your House." He stormed to his wife in the kitchen and announced, "From now on, you need to know that I am THE MAN of this house and my word is LAW!" You'll prepare me a gourmet meal tonight, and when I'm finished...
  7. Miles per year driving average

    While I turned in my Enclave over a year ago (I now lease an SRX), I had leased it for 48 months. I turned it in after 48 months with only 40,000 miles and in excellent condition. Whoever got that car got a real cream puff!
  8. Carbon buildup in the DI engine

    Engine & Drivetrain
    I think "Silvervettes" came closer to answering the problem of carbon build-up than anyone. If the gasoline obviously isn't "washing" down the valves, then the only thing that can "clean" the valves must be the oil. Now, whether or not a synthetic or conventional oil is the answer probably...

    In case you wondered why athletes can't have regular jobs. 1. Chicago Cubs outfielder Andre Dawson on being a role model: "I wan' all dem kids to do what I do, to look up to me. I wan' all the kids to copulate me." 2. New Orleans Saint RB George Rogers when asked about the up coming season: "I...
  10. 2011 Enclave Rear Brakes worn out at 18K

    Brakes, Suspension, Wheels & Tires
    This probably has nothing to do with the Enclaves. Before I bought my '08, I had an '05 Buick Terraza. After I had it serviced by a very good dealer, at about 15,000 miles (I think), I noticed that the rear brakes seemed to be dragging. I got out and checked the rear wheels...they were hot. I...
  11. Code P0100 and P0113

    Engine & Drivetrain
    It was just so much easier when all you had to do was change the oil every 1,000 miles and the oil filter every 5,000 miles. No unleaded gas, PCV valves, and so on. When the tires wore out you could get them re-capped. Oh well, I guess this is progress.
  12. AAMCO Transmission Rebuild

    Engine & Drivetrain
    I only had a transmission "rebuilt" many years ago for my daughter...she had a Ford. Anyway, it was my thought that rebuilt transmissions were like rebuilt engines, where most of the parts were replaced. Not true. I later learned that the only parts, other than seals and some "washers", that...
  13. Carbon buildup in the DI engine

    Engine & Drivetrain
    Sometimes the more you read, the more confusing things are. XR, you basically stated on January 2, that in a DI engine the fuel injects directly into the combustion chambers and never "washes" the backs of the valves (or words to that effect) How then can Techron clean the backs of the valves if...

    Congrats Sailfish. "Spare" time? ****, I don't have that much Full time!
  15. Whats in your Garage?

    Again, here in Brooklyn we don't have many of those little houses for cars...I think you call them "garages". My oldest son (who lives on Staten Island) had one in his last house, but had it filled with everything but a car. How does the story go...you keep $500 worth of toys and old assorted...
