      IIRC the 93-94 1FZ recommends 10w-30 and 95-97 is 5w-30. Yes I have also heard about the oil viscosity for outside of US being in the 10w-40 range. I purchased new plugs from the dealer and going to do a compression check while I’m in...

      Yes, the valve seals can be replaced with the head still in place. Need to remove the cams and the valve shims, then pressurize each cylinder with compressed air and you can pull the valve springs and keepers out from the top with the right tools.

      I been dealing with adding oil for a week or so and the oil light had been pretty accurate during the time, although I wish it was a problem with the wiring or the sensor, I just checked the oil level now after letting the car rest for 20 mins...

      At around 290,000 miles mine began consuming oil at a rapid rate- a quart every 500 miles. I correctly diagnosed it as valve stem seals. Blt4me has hit the proverbial nail on the head, however, I’ve been using 15w40 for over a decade with great...

      The oil level light is a sensor in the side of the block that may or may not be accurately reading oil level. Many of us have taken it out, installed a new o ring, cleaned up the sensor and the issue with the light coming on randomly goes away...

      Your brother let the pixies out! Never trust brothers with cars! Until you check the oil level, why panic? Could be an issue with you oil level sensor wiring. Go check your oil level, and check for loose/cracked/ damaged wiring harness, or...

      Need more information: What viscosity of oil are you using? How are you checking your oil level? What rpm does your engine idle at once the engine warms up?

      Are you only wanting to do 1 side of the birfield? I would stick to oem. Having a kit is nice.

      I run 5w-30 idmitsu api GF-6 oil along with 2 additive cans of liqui moly viscoplus to make it similar to a 10w-30 oil. Oil level is usually checked cold always in the same flat parking spot and dipstick is pulled and wiped multiple times...
