Here are the latest couple of reader questions:
I use synthetic oil in my semi-retired cars and change once a year. I live in northern MN and wonder if changing when the Summer/Fall dust season is over would be my best bet to have the dust season be at the end of the cycle.
I generally change my semi-retired car’s oil in spring, chiefly because it sees even less use during the winter months – which I am assuming is probably the case in your case. On the other hand, there is a case to be made for changing it in the fall – so that the crankcase is full of fresh oil during the off-season. I do exactly this with my outdoor power equipment.
Either way, I think we’re ok. Changing the oil/filter once a year with a high-quality synthetic ought to do the trick. As far s dust, I wouldn’t worry about it unless you haven’t changed the air filter or are running around without one!

Trump continues to assault the German auto industry. What is up with that?
Also, expected. Trump has been explicit about his determination to “protect” the domestic car companies from foreign competition. Perhaps even to the extent of using the regulatory apparat to cripple it.
