I wonder why Toyota just doesn't say "V6 Only". Many owners would have no clue that "1GR-FE" pertains only to the V6 engine.

I'm no conspiracy nut but could it be that by listing it in this way, some dealers are able to sell services that aren't required?

I won't dispute that at all, because it seems to be working...

in this cripple fight, you should have learned one thing. the only reason to have the adjustments checked is due to wear. how do you keep the wear to a min so you never have to check them? clean oil. the more clean oil the better. yspert

Thanks for choosing (insert dealer name here) for your $149.95 5,000 mile service check up, let me run through your service, we looked at your serpentine belt, added spme washer fluid, looked at your air filter, checked your tire pressure (added 1lb to each tire), checked your wiper blades, changed your oil and filter, oh yes and we inspected and adjusted your floating caliper disc brakes. Please see the cashier to pay your bill and pick up your keys. :D

LOL I actually got a half a$$ wash job last week when I took mine in for 10,000 mile oil change (brought in my own Mobil 1 0W20), at least the wash got rid of the mud rain dust we had blow through, oh and I got free washer fluid and air in one tire!!!

Yes they are if you study the valve train components the way they're set up. Although they're in a totally different place and arrangement, they function basically like "conventional" lifters from camshaft to pushrod on a non overhead cam engine.



I respectfully disagree.........the bucket on the 4.7 is basically a spacer between the cam lobe and valve. It doesn't "lift" anything.


A "lifter" on an OHV motor acts between the cam lobe and "lifts" the pushrod that acts on a rocker arm.


The "lifter" on the 5.7 "MAY" be more related to the OHV motor in that it bacically preloads a rocker arm.


I think "pusher" would be a better name.....LOL!!!

OMG, your kidding, right?:eek::cry:

OK, just in case you aren't joking...The 5.7 does not have a timing belt...it has timing chains...4 of em and you should not have to change them for the life of the engine.:D:tu:

Here...read up...

Those buckets are Lifting the valve off the seat, there for they are lifters doing the same thing as lifters do in push rod motors.
