    Good content always brings in viewers/readers! Keep up the great work, Jim.

    I continue to be amazed at how many people find the “How to deal with a stuck oil filter” entry. It tells a lot about how people turn to the Web for info… and how many ham-fisted oil change techs there are out there who work under the rule that too tight is never enough! Makes me wonder about how many people also have trouble getting their oil drain plug undone!
