    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...

    When I first start the truck the pressure is fine at halfway, as the vehicle warms up it will drop to the low line and spike up as I push down on the gas.
