Ryobi 18V One+ Project Wet/Dry Title Image

Ryobi 18V One+ Project Wet/Dry Vacuum

I have the same problem vacuuming out my car, that I do with pumping up my tires — the fuse blows on the only electrical plug-in I have access to.

After great results using both the Ryobi 18V One+ Dual Function Inflator/Deflator and the Power Inflator, I decided to give their Project Wet/Dry Vacuum a try.

To find out how well the cordless Ryobi 18V One+ Project Wet/Dry Vacuum did vacuuming out the Cobalt SS/SC, check out this review!

Ryobi 18V One+ Dual Function Inflator/Deflator

I've needed a convenient way to pump up the tires on my cars for years, but haven't ever gotten around to doing anything about it.

The persnickety nature of the Cobalt's tires have finally gotten me to do the deed and I chose this Ryobi 18V One+ Dual Function Inflator/Deflator to do it.

Read on to see how well it performed.

Ryobi 18V One+ Power Inflator

Recently I tested the Ryobi 18V One+ Dual Function Inflator/Deflator to pump up the tires on my project cars, but found it too large to fit in the Cobalt SS/SC for extended road trips.

To remedy that issue, I picked up their handheld, trigger operated Power Inflator.

Check out this review to see how well the Ryobi 18V One+ Power Inflator performed on my most recent road trip into Glacier National Park.

OTC OBD I & II Scan Tool 3211 Title Image

OTC OBD I & II Scan Tool 3211

For years I avoided cars that require a scan tool for diagnostic work.

Once I was forced to buy them (I've owned three, so far), I avoided working on them.

Only recently have I run into a problem with the Cobalt SS/SC that I actually benefitted from having a scan tool, so I broke down and bought one.

After extensive research, the tool I chose to purchase was an OTC OBD I & II Scan Tool (P/N 3211). It straddles the line between cost and professional capabilities.

Follow along with this review to see how I was able to use it and how well it worked for me.
