    You might want to check your Toyota sealed trans

    Why so quick to think there are devious motives? How do we know these transmissions are under-filled? Could it be possible that these vehicles leave the factory with the correct volume of fluids? Any evidence of harm done? Seems to me, that the service refill procedure might end up with a...

    99 I4 Camry Consuming Oil

    I have a 99 I4 Camry with 158K miles that uses about 2/3 quart of oil in 3000 miles. I notice a slight puff of white smoke in the mornings at start up. Guessing the valve seals are starting to wear. Would you add oil and extend the OCI or change the oil at 3000 miles? I use whatever 5W30 oil...

    Monroe Sensa-Trac struts/Quick-strut package

    I went with Quick Struts for my 99 I4 Camry (all 4 wheels). The struts I replaced were all original and I knew I had to replace all the components (mounts, all rubber, spring, struts). Amazon had them for a great price combined with the rebate from Monroe. Quick Struts were a better value and...

    Central Pneumatic air compressor any good ?

    Do you have a HF retail site near you? They are frequently on sale for $99. I have the same version in my garage for the past 3 years. Great little compressor. Use it to air up tires, 1/2" impact wrench, air ratchet, and nail guns.

    Toyota water pumps

    I went 126k miles on my 99 Camry 5SFE. Timing belt was loose and needed to be changed so I also did the water pump while I was at it. Water pump still looked like it had more life in it. No leaks, no noise. I did notice that the shaft in the old pump did not turn as smoothly as the shaft in the...
