    I've seen that also. Rain on radar but the humidity level is so low, it evaporates before reaching the ground. Weather is a strange thing. The one I hate however is "no chance of rain, it'll be...

    That is a common problem, mainly with Ford's but also on Chrysler Hemi and to a lesser extent, 4.7L. Around here what happens is, the manifold starts to rust between the head and itself. The rust...
