well...I'm intrigued, but i feel like I am walking into a bear trap... I use Mobil 1 fully syntetic 0w20 and Mobile 1 Extended Performance -Part# M1-212A... i am intrigued by all of the Amsoil suggestions as apparently I live under a rock and havent heard much about it...are there any links of side by side comparisons? I change my own oil quite regularly at 5000 mls. how much better performance and more importantly for me longevity will I get out of my vehicle? (I am about due for a transmission and transfer case fluid change, so is it safe for me to assume y'all are Amsoil ALL in fans?)
awesome, thanks for the info! i am willing to bet I am in this same category...i was planning on clearning my filter this weekend anyway...but i will add the MAFS cleaning to my list also. (fyi, i did add the techron and the light already went off...but your suggestion is probably fixing the problem not the symptom, so thank you!!!
went to autozone and they were very helpful...pulled code P050D...which indicates a Cold Start Rough Idle...the recommended solution was to clean the injectors...so I put some techron injector cleaner in it and will clean out my air filter this weekend...(I have a K&N and checked in a week or so ago when I changed my oil and it looked good, but looks can be deceiving I suppose)...hopefully that will solve the problem... anyone else have this issue? If it is more gas related than air related, it would be surprising since I use 100% gas and usually use 89 octane... thanks for the help guys!
Well...when I started my truck this morning the engine light came on...I drove down the block, and shut my truck off...turned it back on and still on...I didn't have another option...so I drove to work (a bit white knuckled and nervous)... I did a little research and I am guessing it is for cabin air filter, transmission fluid replacement, and transfer case fluid replacement...(I'm around 47k miles)...?? I would have thought those would have popped up on the info center like low washer fluid or normal oil change warning... Am I right or am I in for a nice stealership payday? if it is just the fluids, any idea how much those cost for replacement? (I change my own oil, but never done transmission or transfer case)
I have a RC 2" front level, stock rear...I also put BFG KO2 285/65 on my stock 18" rims and for me, it is all I need and the look I wanted...no rubbing. you can scroll though this thread though and find dozens and dozens of opinions.
looks great! If you wanted to completely debadge, you might consider getting some either blue or black vinyl and covering the Z in the grill...maybe even the 71 too...I color matched mine in black and personally really like it...not a tough job at all.
not really man...just have to get a vehicle that will last...so i will (hopefully) be driving this thing for 10 years... and my wife owns a business...so the only way we can afford a decent Burb is through her business...which would be the main use for it anyway... Black trucks suck! haha! great only for the day its washed! hahaha! but thank you...i try to keep it nice...but Mother Nature has other plans for me... well...i have a camper shell...so i know what you mean! ha! as i mentioned above, it it weren't for my wife's business...we would probably get another 4 Runner when she needs a new vehicle, but its just too small to haul all her stuff around...
