How to Make Your Car Last Forever: Auto Q&A with Tom Torbjornsen

Dear Tom,

I own a 2001 Chevy S-10 with 156,000 miles. When I start the truck it sounds likes a lifter is stuck. After warming up, the truck seems fine except for the oil pressure, which moves from 40 psi to 80 psi. What is causing the pressure to move around so much?

Congressman Higgins’ Response to the State of the Union Address

“In today’s 2011 State of the Union Address President Obama outlined the United States’ game plan toward winning the future, and first up is job creation and economic growth.  Americans are justifiably impatient and we need to fuel that urgency with opportunities for success for our businesses, for our innovators and for our children.

“America can compete against any nation in the world when given the tools to do so. We should start by preparing our children for greatness with an unmatched quality education and preparing our businesses for prosperity by leveling the playing field impacted by China’s unfair economic policies and extending the Research and Development tax credits that feed the entrepreneurial hunger to develop cutting edge breakthroughs.
