After using this Bissell Spot Clean Professional ( https://amzn.to/2RGxeJN ) for six years it has never let us down to quickly clean pet stains, food stains, and other stains off our white carpets and upholstery. The hose is still intact and the motors are fine. We clean the entire system after every use. Due to the compact size we bring it to detail our cars, but mostly to spot clean carpets after a party.

We found that while the Bissell cleaning solution ( https://amzn.to/3gfcp1A ) works, we normally just our Bissell Spot Clean Pro to spray HOT TAP water and for water sucking power. There are other Bissell Spot Clean versions but the PRO is the best sucking power. For fast cleaning we use Resolve Pet Expert ( https://amzn.to/2TkryFS ) and a kitchen scrub brush ( https://amzn.to/2TWNeYQ ) .

Just follow the directions on the Resolve pet expert solution to treat the spot on the carpet. Let the solution sit for 4 minutes. Scrub the carpet. Then use the Bissell Spot Clean Pro to spray hot tap water and vacuum up the dirt from the carpet. You can also use hot tap water on a sprayer and a wet dry vacuum ( https://amzn.to/2Te7lBl ) to suck up the dirt.

Overall, its been a good investment to have a carpet cleaner especially when you have a pet or light color carpet to spot clean. It only takes about 10 minutes to spot clean with great results.

Costco Run: Car Stuff – Cereal – Manuka Honey – May 2021

I went to Costco to pickup Manuka Honey ( https://amzn.to/2QSEYaW ) and Honey Bunches of Oats Cereal ( https://amzn.to/33bQCAi ) because I was running low. What caught my eye was the Audi SUV with white wheels, this was the first time I saw OEM white wheels on a mass market car. They had Meguilars car wash ( https://amzn.to/3gT1Th7 ) , Mobil 1 motor oil ( https://amzn.to/2SnvJ36 ) , and Armor All Sanitizing Spray. The Suds and Go Carwash brush kit for $24.99 was a terrific value compared to similar brush kits online ( https://amzn.to/3eMRO2w).

CHEVY VOLT VLOG #75 – OIL PAN GASKET LEAK and Replacement

Chevy Volt Oil Pan Leak and Replacement

My 2017 Chevy Volt is now about 95,000 miles now. It has been burning oil for several months. It has been very slow due to the low use of the internal combustion engine. In the past several months, I noticed the oil level dropped about one quart every 3 weeks. It soon grew to losing about one quart every week before I noticed an oil spot on my driveway. I also noticed a burning oil smell.

The oil filter and drain plug were tight and not leaking. The Chevy Volt’s underbody fiber panels ABSORBED several quarts of the oil before the speed of the moving car drifted oil to the exhaust pipes causing the burning oil smell.

Since only about half of the 2017 Chevy Volt mileage is with gas, and the rest has been electric motor, the engine probably only has about 45,000 to 50,000 gas miles on it.

Searching the internet, it seems like some 2016 and 2017 Chevy Volt has an oil pan gasket leak early in its production. So it may be the build and the gasket material. Also from the forums, users noted that the Volt needed several days to fix and may cost anywhere from $800-$1600 out of warranty to repair. The reason for several days to fix was due to the gasket material curing or clients returning back to the dealer when it leaked again after the repair.

After doing my research – I decided to do it myself :

  1. I didn’t want to spend $1000 or more in repair costs, car rental, and lost time. I figured it take me about 3 hours of actual work and 1 day of waiting for the gasket to cure. And about $40 for a new oil pan hardware , $5 for RTV Silicone Permatex Ultra Black gasket maker, $5 oil filter , and $12 for 0w-20 synthetic oil . The panels were soaked in oil and not sure what the dealer may do or charge me to clean, so I got $12 gallon bottle of degreaser solution, and $6 two cans of Carb cleaner . Total cost about $80 in materials and 3 hours or so in labor.
  2. Oil pan replacement generally is pretty simple, and I wanted to make sure the gasket had time to cure and that I was able to clean off all the oil spray on the exhaust pipes and under panels.
