  1. If I was going to buy an Avalon, I would buy a ES 350 Lexus instead. There about the same price. Ones more upscale. No one would call it a Toyota though there’s nothing wrong with one, obviously. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. They probably started it without oil in it. Then it seized. The oil tec put oil in it. Then he burnt the starter trying to start it. While waiting for a starter it unseized. They installed the starter the engine started but knocked from lack of oil. Baffled they ordered the engine. I figured I’d come up with an explanation cause they probably wouldn’t. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Wow great minds.
  3. People get amusing sometimes. Sure I’ll do a quick flash if someone thinks I have my highs on, only to inform. Two cars crashing head on in a ditch blinded by high beams. That wouldn’t do anyone any good. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I used KOs on my trucks for as long as can remember. The highest load range and ply rating. My work would take me off road on utility and pipelines. Some in the thorny bushes. No flats, rode good and quiet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I have one vehicle coming off warranty this year, 10 years less than 100K miles. I had everything done at the dealership. The recommended oil change was just under 4K miles. The engine doesn’t even have direct injection. There’s no reason not to extend on that one and I will with Amsoil. The other one in two years. It’s already extended ( Toyota) I go 6-8K, they say 10K. After warranty I’ll go once a year or 10-15K with no fear with Amsoil. It’s a 4Cly non turbo engine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I use that and WAZ on my phone. Rarely get caught in a traffic jam. That’s saying something going East on I-10 from Texas. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I’ve never had an engine failure going extended with Amsoil. That counts dozens of gas and diesel vehicles and much more off road diesels. That being said engines change. I wouldn’t dream of doing that with many miles with these so called modern engines. I never had a reason to use a different brand. I do use dealers and their oil now simply because of more frequent oil changes. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I’ve never needed a front end alignment. I’m don’t have a pothole problem in my area. I’ve rarely had a vehicle with over 150K or had front end work done. Most of my working life has involved off roading. If you’re hard on your vehicle have bad roads your tires wear uneven, it may need alignment. I just had my car serviced with tire rotation at 54K. My tire wear was even and wearing well. My service writer says you’ll probably need tires and alignment soon. I ask him to explain the alignment. He couldn’t, they just have talking points from a script. It’s you like spending money and it makes you feel better go for it. It’s not a routine requirement. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. It’s a 2door Tahoe that’s why. I was going to mod a 98 myself with a s/c . I got my 92 instead. Hindsight I wish I did the Tahoe. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. It looks good sitting still. I believe in some states it would be illegal that far outside the fender. I’m a fan of level, lower myself. But I appreciate the other look too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I’ve never noticed drain holes before. It’s reasonable to believe the drain holes would go with the flow and be in the back. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I’ve never paid more than 1K. I’d cancel. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I’ve have, had three oil users. 1994 Z-28 until 130K sold. Stayed at a qt every 2500 miles. A 99 4.6 F-150. New until 120K trade in. At 20K miles a vortex S/C 5LBs boost. A qt every 2500 miles. My 1992 Chevy truck bought with recently stroked engine with a whipple. Had it now 10 years using 1qt every 500 miles. My first and only stroker. Was told it wasn’t unusual for a stroked engine to be an oil user. Those engines convinced me using oil isn’t always a bad thing. Funny how on the new 5.0s it’s being claimed the same.

  14. With the newer lights in most vehicles just going up an incline gives the appearance of high beams being on. Usually if the low beams are on so are the running lights ( fog lights). Our roads out here have slight inclines. It’s seems since 2011 no matter what vehicle I’ve driven on those inclines people think the highs are on. I just give a quick flick if I get flashed.
