    I am going to drive 1 more month and change the oil on that one.

    2. I need to replace vacuum pump* and centrifuge (oil separator) on my mother's vehicle. It is leaking oil a little. Easy work. It now has about 139k and we only did basic maintenance on it.
    (we are debating about changing the entire vacuum pump or just do o-ring replacement)

    3. Still shopping around the Throttle actuator (bank 1) to see who is cheapest.

    All 3 are ICE.
    2 uses odd names. Centrifuge was a first for me on vehicle parts.

    Speaking of things from the past - I was looking at some old highway pictures and it occurred to me that the old "oil stain in the middle of the highway" is pretty much a thing of the past. Back in the 60's and 70's it was just taken as a "given" that all cars would drip a little oil and so the middle of the lane in the freeway always had a nice black, oily stain. The older the highway, the worse the stain.

    Here's an example of what I mean:

    Now that cars have pretty much stopped leaking you don't see that anymore.

    I actually thought of that yesterday when I pulled into a 7-Eleven to get an energy drink (since I don't "need" to go to gas stations anymore ;-) and in the parking spots were massive oil slicks and even degraded concrete as a result of the gross puddles people's cars leave. Granted the new cars are much better but another bonus to driving an EV is not worrying about leaks.
