After going to school to become a network administrator, Mike, fell in love with programming. He has been a midrange (IBM i, iSeries, AS/400) developer since 2000. He has since added ASP.NET to to his toolbox (around 2006) and now does dual duty writing/supporting green-screen applications and ASP.NET internet and intranet applications. He does a lot of integration between the IBM i and ASP.NET.

Besides his programming day job, he dabbles in PHP and many other areas of tech.

You can find him on his website, @MikeWills, Facebook, and Google+

comment Is there a trick for doing bleeding the lines by yourself?
In 10 years, I have never bleed my brakes. If I used it more often I would have a different outlook.

A little spendy for a DIYer like myself. I'll have to get my dad's or father-in-law's help. They are cheaper too.

Thanks for the answers. I assumed the answer was better to have two, but I wanted to see if there was some better way that I didn't know.

I just stopped at the shop to have them take a look. They found a couple other things as well (I don't recall what off the top of my head). They'll fix it all for about $400. At this point, it's worth it for me. My time (and saved frustration) is worth more than they are charging in labor in this case.

comment Adding Towing Capability to my '09 Chevy Traverse
That would require me buying a new vehicle which isn't in the cards. It appears like the whole package can ONLY come from the factory. You can't install in after delivery.

It had that, and oil cooler, and a special button that changes the shifting points in the transmission. The transmission piece based on research is factory installed only.
