    Anyone Use 5w30 Super Tech ?

    I've read that SuperTech synthetic is more than OK for most things. Not sure if you're talking about it or conventional though.

    Aisin ATF WS?

    Eric the Car Guy of Youtube fame used Maxlife ATF in a 4Runner of the same vintage as yours (they all have the same A340f trans afaik), with good results. He still works on the same truck regularly and hasn't mentioned any problems related to the transmission.

    my new to me riding mower

    If the surging is due to a slightly lean mixture (as it usually is), some fuel treatment like a gumout product or similar might just clean out a restricted carb jet. Worth a shot.

    Coolant recomendation for older Nissan, Toyota

    Always use Toyota Long Life Red (not pink) in older Toyotas. It's silicate free and wont eat solder.

    Cheap OBD2 Bluetooth devices

    +1 to the BAFX. It's the best one I've ever used. I use it with the Torque Pro app.

    Switch to Synthetic?

    I switched a 350hr 19hp Kohler that has full pressure lubrication from 10w-30 conventional to Rotella T5 10w-30 and it did not develop any leaks. I say try T5 and see how it likes it. It's a very good oil for OPE applications.

    <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: BikeWhisperer</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Looks like a Purolator product, no tears so it looks like it did the job. </div></div> That's what I was thinking. Most Toyota filters use glue rather than metal end caps.

    Toyota 90915-YZZG1 Cut Open

    Filter was used on a 5VZ-FE 3.4L V6 with Castrol GTX High Mileage 5w30 for approximately 4,000mi. There were no noticeable tears and the media felt firm as it should. The ADBV was perfectly pliable. Well built filter IMO. <img src="" class="post-image" alt="" />...

    Who makes a quality fuel filter?

    I put a WIX in my '97 4Runner 3.4L, it's considered to be of good quality. Bought mine from rockauto.

    10w30 vs 15w40 first impressions

    I use Rotella T6 in some wet clutch ATVs, it seems to work very well and is cheaper than "specialty" ATV oil.

    I live half an hour west of there. It's a great part of the state. Lots of history.

    Nylon timing gears ? still in use ?

    Many small engines for OPE still use Nylon cam gears. I know that my Kohler Courage twin cam OHV uses them as well as my Briggs Quantum and Sprint. They almost never cause a problem. As far as auto engines though, I havent seen them used on anything in the last 20 years at least.

    92 Tacoma Engine Replacement or Head Gasket?

    I would second swapping in a 3.4L. Would be a very nice upgrade and you could kiss head gasket problems goodbye.

    92 Tacoma Engine Replacement or Head Gasket?

    If it's a '92 it's not a Tacoma, it's just a pickup. There were two engine options, 22-RE and 3VZ-E. The 3VZ-E 3.0L V6 was notorious for head gasket issues, but I'd say it's definitely worth replaceing the HG if the engine and truck are in good shape. Just being rust free makes that truck...
