    1Gen-Sequoia
    Recently bought 2007 Sequoia Limited 4WD with 204,000 miles and it seems well taken care of. I'm going to be doing the maintenance and so came here to find out what oil and filter to use. Lots of references to Mobile 1 but since there are more than one Mobile 1 products I'm going to ask...
  2. Plastic found after oil change

    1Gen-Tundra
    I purchased a 2002 tundra 4.7L last week and the car dealer did oil change but I decided to put mobil 1 fully synthetic oil in, and while changing the oil I noticed black hard plastic came out of the old oil. I did add seafoam and drove 30 miles before draining the old oil. Anyone have any...
  3. Cost of Oil Change for Sequoia?

    Sequoia
    Hi - my wife just go back from getting an oil change on our 2012 Sequoia. We had bought this 2012 Sequoia as a certified used vehicle. I decided that we would get it serviced at Toyota as it had been before we bought it. I know the cost will be significantly higher at times. But, the oil and...
  4. Using ATF for a motor flush

    Engine, Intake, Exhaust, Induction
    2002 Toyota Tundra Limited, 4.7L V8, <115000 miles. A fellow coworker with one of those sporty mid late 2000s 2wd Tacoma X runners told me that if I feel my truck is running sort of sluggish, I should add a quart of ATF fluid to my oil, run my truck for about 10 minutes at idle, then drain the...
  5. 2004 Sequoia 4wd Dealership Oil Change.. they forgot the Oil! What to do?

    1Gen-Sequoia
    So this happened about 2 weeks ago, left dealership after getting oil changed, I was about 1/4 mile away and my engine shuts off. I manage to limp it back close to the dealership before it won't start anymore. In all it turned off 4x and was driven more than 1mi, but less than 2. Tech comes...

    I own a 2011 Tundra 5.7L gas engine with 39,825 miles on it. I don't tow anything (yet) and live in Oceanside California (San Diego). My trips are relatively of short distances. (less than 15 miles) The owners manual recommends regular SAE oil to be used, however, I am thinking of using a...

    Tacoma
    I've got the Tacoma DC with 4.0L and have been told the engine comes with synthetic by one Toyota person, and that it comes with regular oil by another Toyota person. I can't tell the difference looking at the dipstick, and don't see anything in the manual. Anyone know the answer? Also, I've...

    1Gen-Tundra
    I have a 06 4.7L SR5 with 157,000 miles and I’m thinking of switching to synthetic oil. Any recommendations before I do my oil change? I mainly want to know if synthetic oil will help or harm my truck having high miles on it. Also if it will help, witch synthetic oil would be the best to use...
  9. Oil Change Interval for FlexFuel Tundra That Doesn't Use FlexFuel

    Tundra
    The problem: information from Toyota makes it appear that all 2012 Flex Fuel Tundras require oil change at 5K miles (2.5K if Flex Fuel is used more than 50% of the time). Quoting from ToyotaCare brochure, "2012 Sequoia Flex Fuel and 2012 Tundra Flex Fuel (both with the 3UR-FBE engine type)...
  10. New Sneakers and a lil' tip...

    Tundra
    After almost 3 years and 57K miles, I finally decided on wheels and tires for the truck. Didn't want to level/lift it yet, so I went with 275/60R20 Cooper LTZ's and wrapped them around a set of black 20"x9" +30mm XD Hoss wheels. Here's a couple of cell phone pics in low light, but they'll do for...

They told me it is basically just 2 oil changes since these Tundras come with 0W20 synthetic oil and don't need to be changed till 10k miles! I...
  13. Seafoam in the crankcase before and after oil change?

    1Gen-Tundra
    A couple of questions about Seafoam: 1. According to the instructions on the can, you can add the product to your oil. I did this after my last oil change, topping off the oil with the recommended about of SeaFoam. Can it be left in the crankcase until the next oil change -- or should the oil...

  15. Oil Observation

    1Gen-Tundra
    I am by no means an expert or even a knowledgeable guy when it comes to oil. I buy oil that is recommended by members here or that I have done some research on. I have come to find that there are as many opinions about oil as there are brands of oil. I have run the following oils in my truck...
