Afaik, Toyota says the SLL pink is backward compatible for all Toyotas. But don't take my word for it, Google it and see. That said, if you have any doubt simply go with the LL red you inquired about.

Back in the mid 1990's I operated a Northwest Dragline ( Crane ) in a sandpit powered by a Murphy engine. As I recall it was built around 1943. That Dragline ran every day, all day long wide open at about 800rpm with no issues. It's all about how th

Inertial forces on the bearings are going to be a major portion of the bearing load and are obviously going to be much lower at low rpms. Lugging vibrations are the sum of the drivetrain interaction with the body and not going to be indicative of

I drove a rental with an 8 speed AT a while back and it felt like it was lugging a lot of the time. That can't be good for the engine, or anything else for that matter.

A Ford E350 with a gas V10 isn't as bad as a 6.doh, but still pretty crowded. Worst I have ever seen was a V6 Fiero.

Oil filter is probably the issue. That's not normal for the engines in those to knock cold.

No. It's an Asian P-H/OAT. Only minor negative, it's recommended service interval is ~2years/30kmiles. It is getting sorta pricey too as the Super Long Life pink is superseding it. On the plus side though, it comes as a concentrated formula as oppose

I put an AGM in my 1975 BMW 2002. This car sits a lot, and gets started every week or two. Whenever I crank it, it is loaded with power and cranks fast!

It seems to me that many years ago Chevy designed the Vega for a Wankel (rotary) engine (they were a hot item for awhile) but at the last minute crammed in a normal gas engine that was impossible to work on.

The difference is running the engine low rpm with a higher load(lugging) which can burn more oil also.
