    What's the prediction for Long Island?

    The predictions are colder and snowy like last season but the El Nino ******** is said to be playing a factor in what happens. Can't be too sure during any Long Island winters.

    Guys. I know it's not weather, but I live in Queens - do you know any great diesel mechs in Queens - Longs Island? 7.3 F-350. Oil pouring out behind oil pan from somewhere. Oil pan seems fine. Thanks.

    Check the turbo pedestal because if the orings go bad it leaks in to the valley and drains down the back of the motor.

    Glad you were able to fix the problem. Those issues suck and so does this warm weather.

    I was wondering the same thing about freeze up. None of my locations have any spots where puddles form from rain so that's not a worry but wondering if even the slick blacktop and dense fog will freeze? Guess check roadway early am tomm. I don't see anything for Wednesday as of now? Just that conditions could be correct for snow but see thy updated Sunday night/monday for a chance. Anyone else have any input ?
