      I've had one of these in each of my cars for years and they work great. Look around on Amazon if this isn't a good solution for you; they have tons of different mounts.

      If you have condensation in your oil, it might show up on the dipstick, but it often appears as a creamy brown mess inside the oil cap. Very common in colder climates during the winter months.

      My best advice would be to start simple and make sure all your connections are clean and rust free before going to the time and trouble of changing parts. Start at the battery and clean your way to...

      OK, the battery is three days old and only at 11V? Have you had a look at the alternator to make sure it's charging when the engine is running? I've seen a lot advice about starters, alarms, and...
