Hi-Noob here. Now, Im not talking specialty oils, which are the best of course, but deliver margianlly better extended life. Heres my non-scientific non-tech beliefs about oil and lube. What do you thinK?---- The following is advice I offer just from a common sence approach. I have used Rotella t synthetic from WAl-Mart (which I do not use anymore since it has now gone up a few dollars in price), and Fram Tough Gaurd filters.Fram Tough Gaurd filters offer excellent filtration, at a reduced oil flow. This is why I use synthetic oil, or at the very least a good mid-grad Semi-synthetic like Exxon Superflow.Any filter that has excellent filtration is going to be a compromise in the oil flow charectar of the filter. I am a bit concerned about the quality of construction, but I do change my filter every 4000-5000 miles. Also, the Fram has an Anti-Drainback valve. Still, I might switch filter brands with a little more research. One thing for sure-the Fram is the easiest to put on and take off-- this is no small concern on the 22r engine. I also use "RIslone" because its the only FAA approved oil additive, but i do not use it in my toyota, only in my older Ford truck with the 360 V-8 and 130,000 miles on it . Regarding the Junk you reccomend ,its just a gimmick. Just flush your engine every few oil changes with Berryman Chemtool before your oilchange and theirs no need for that crap. In addition, I agree that "Lucas" is junk, except for that its probaly good for your TAnk as a upper cylander lube and fuel system cleaner . Furthermore, nearly any oil that has the API sl- and "J" specs is sufficient. I currently use Wal-Mart Tech_synthetic at 12.00 for 5 quart bottle.Stay away from Motorcraft-it isnt rated to specs for Toyota-at least not that I could tell.One thing i do not do is puit any Teflon into my engine.I do use the very best synthetic Valvoline or similar fuel system /upper cylander lubricant once a year at least. __________________ 1989 2wd 22R;Mallory Hyfire Igntion,Magnacore wires,K/N filter,Gabriel Steer stablizr,Hellwig rear SWwaybar,Edelbrock shocks,Cooper tires 205-70-14,14X6 Steelies, LC Eng dbl. row time chain kit w/ cast iron oil pump, Porterfield r2 Front Discs/Carbon Kevlar rear drums,Zoom2 clutch Last edited by sloppybeak : Today at 01:12 AM.
