Going 80 you might not notice the loss of oil pressure in time to do anything. I was wondering how long you had been driving when it blew up? Hours or just floored it from a stop? Would an oil pressure gauge made a difference?

Leasing a Volt. The only reason why I would not is because I usually drive more than 12,000 miles a year. But an interesting idea nonetheless. Most of the driving would be electric for sure as the new range for the Volt gen 2 is 50 miles electric only. That would take care of almost all MA driving.

What a bad run of luck with the heater cores. What were you using for coolant? The Oil pump must be different with the Chevy? I have never heard of a failure with the oil pump so maybe it was a bad part. I expect that I will have some issues with the cooling system at some point as my mother did not change the coolant that I could tell for 15 years. But she hardly drove it either it had collected all of 38 k in 16 years and most of that was on the highway.

I am guessing that the ballasts are lossy and units not requiring them would use less power. I don't know that for sure but LEDs don't need a firing voltage just a current limiting resistor. I would guess that someone makes the LEDs needing ballast so that they will be plug and play. Incandescent lighting was 19th century. Flourescent was 20th century and LED is 21st century. must have been a defective pump. Your car did not have an oil pressure guage? That engine was pretty good as they go. Jim

so what kind of lighting do you have in your house. I was unaware of tube Led light to replace the long fluorescent tube lamps. I guess that is what you are talking about. As an interesting bit of history I used to work in an old mill building on the Charles River in Watertown(within sight of the Tesla repair shop now) The mill building has housed many a business with the first known use of the site being a paper mill that burned in the 1760s and a factory for the first manufactured Flourescent Lamps in 1930. The plant and patents was sold to General Electric in 1939. There was an example of the device made there in a small museum. The tubes were smaller in diameter than recent manufacture but you would not mistake them for what they are.

I am wondering if Tesla may have a weak front suspension. I have heard about broken steering knuckle. Front suspension may be a place for steel not aluminum. It makes you wonder when you see a Tesla on a truck what caused that? Not so much to go wrong and still there are dead ones.

Gen2 Volt is huge improvement over Gen 1. Gen 2 with the new 4 cyl engine and the two new electric motors better weight ,better battery just amazing. I know what you mean about GM. Some of their stuff is good and some is just junk. Buick Le Sabres held up well. We go to the Midwest and in certain places Buick Le Sabres and Pontiacs and some Olsmobiles are all you see. What happened to your Chevy at 73K that necessitated a new engine?

Saw some Led A19 60watt Equivalent soft whites at Home Despot for $5.97. 100Watt equivalent A19 for $ 8.97. I have seen 60 watt equivalent LED lights for as little as 4.97 recently

Sorry I think my keyboard must be giving up the ghost it seems to be dropping letters. Here is the link again. blogs.motortrend.com/1504_dissecting_chevys_2nd_gen_moonshot_technologue.html It is truly amazing. It would take a lot of engineers a long time to do this..
