I generally don't concern myself with a salesman's line of garbage. I already know what I want, have researched it, and am aware of current market value. Tell 'em what you're willing to pay and do the deal or leave.

I heard any oil is fine as long as you don't go over 5k. At that point your Toyota VVT will fail.

Clearly the sensor is a generic copy. This is why you don't buy car parts from fleabay unless you want knock-offs. There is a lot of counterfeit goods on eBay as well.

If you leave this connected, then watch for timing advance. I could correlate car's perceived peppiness on a day with observing high values of the timing advance. I had UltraGauge hooked up at that time to my daily driving car.

Oil Additives

If your going to buy it I recommend checking O'Reilly's website remember seeing it under clearance additives. I think it was less then $7 then (a few weeks back).

Jump to new posts Re: pyb 5W20 or tgmo by camrydriver111 @ 20 minutes 49 seconds ago

I would use synthetic at 10k intervals especially for short trips. Synthetic has vastly superior cold flow properties. Toyota has conservative OCIs. Don't worry about it. You're over-thinking it.

It's going to be lower in most additive levels than the Delo 5w40. Per the PDS the phosphorus level will be around 700ppm and the zinc around 820ppm. It honestly looks more like a Euro diesel oil than an American one... but that's not necessarily a

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