    Burning major oil warming up / Choke on to stay on / not staying on at stops

    ok I've moved on to the next issue :) So my engine is gulping oil due to me yanking the choke when I fire it up. I assume because I'm "choking" the engine, it is burning more oil as it should and is meant to do. My issue is the friggin car won't stay lit. It wants to rumble out every time I...

    The Math isn't lining up

    So when my oil light comes on, I am just about exactly 1 Qt. low. Oil light has not been on in a long time. Dipstick looks good (although sometimes it reads waaay over F). Just completed an oil change, and decided to measure the amount that came out of the pan. According to this pic, I only...

    Front Differential Oil Capacity

    FYI - Documenting what I couldn't exactly find a number for. Just changed the front diff oil after 6 1/2 years and 35k miles of mostly low stress road use. Measured the drain out - right at 4 quarts of nice thick dark gray/green iridescent diff soup. I'd say it was about like a melted...

    When to change oil on a new car?

    Need your help. Picked up a 2019 Subaru Ascent the other day and owners manual says first oil change is 6 months or 6,000 miles. My plan is to change the oil at 1,000 miles to clear out all the oil after the break in period. At 6,000 miles I'll change it again to stay on schedule so I don't...

    Same or different gear oil for manual box and transfer case ?

    That perennial question 8-) I currently run Caltex VMX-M in both the 5-spd manual box (with Nulon G-70) and part-time transfer case (with no additive) of my 80. Looking to try something else. I've had recommendations to firstly not use the same oil in both and secondly to go with Redline MT-90...

    Different versions of genuine Toyota diesel oil filter for 1hz/1hdt/1hdft ?

    Hmmm. So there is what seems to be a genuine made-in-Japan oil filter 90915-30002, and a genuine not-made-in-Japan oil filter 90915-30002-8T (made in Thailand). No prizes for guessing which is the cheaper one. For anyone in the know, does that also mean the quality is significantly different...

    AC temps not as cold and temps fluctuating

    Last weekend, I made a foolish mistake trying when removing my alternator. I couldn't move what i now know to be the ac compressor far enough out of the way so I disconnected the tube going in to the top of it, result in the ac venting nto the air on my 1990 hdj81. This weekend I rented a...

    Oil pan damage and repair suggestions.

    As some know I am changing my oil and the PO had "gooked" up the oil pan plug with Permatex and a Toyota gasket. I removed the plug and Viola! there is a dent at the six o'clock position where the gasket goes. I am planning on using JB weld to level the dent out. Is there a better product or...

    Changing oil right now..a tale of two filters

    Hello guys, I am changing my oil and bought a Toyota oil filter 90915-YZZD3 and it is tiny compared to the Napa 21515 filter. The Napa filter looks like it goes on a Caterpillar bulldozer and the Toyota is literally "cute" next to it. The seal looks to match but the capacity is way different...

    1FZFE Oil Level Sensor Block Off

    I've been toying with this idea in my head for a while now, I know that there are businesses that produce oil level sensor block off plates for the USDM 3SGTE (for those who don't know, it's the engine from the MR2, JDM doesn't have an oil level sensor). I've seen this block-off plate from...

    Oiled air filter + Paper filter = ??

    Hey fellas, so I stumbled on this question when I picked up a paper air filter for my 12H-T 'Cruiser: Long story short, I have a thin Unifilter (read: oiled) foam sleeve that slips right over the paper filter. I figured it would be nice to have two levels of filtration. Is this approach...

    Expensive Oil ....A Waste?

    I couldn't help but stoke the always burning fire that is 'which oil should I use' across internet forums. http://thegarage.jalopnik.com/why-expensive-oil-is-a-waste-of-money-1797241527 This article, and the related test seem to indicate that 'some oil is better than none, and some is whatever...

    High oil pressure and oil blowing out by filter after B-12 in crankcase and oil change :/

    Here is what happened... It's unfortunately a bit of an 'I told ME so'. It was time for an oil change on my 78 with a stock 2F. I was debating if I should try to clean up the crank case a bit with sea foam or B-12. I was leaning toward no, but then decided to do it. I used less than...
