Seriously,I wouldnt have given over $500.

Be aware,the rear trailing arm bushings on these cannot be replaced and you must buy new Toyota arms for $300 each.
Just saying..

Remember different areas have different used car markets.

Any other car in this price range is beat and has more miles here in Phoenix.

One that's of a specified grade (i.e. 5W or 10W-30). smile

Yes, cooling system issues are the cause of more engine failures than oil-related causes.

I think 5k miles is quite conservative in this application.

thumbsup But a homemade spray paint job would surely reduce any given vehicle's value; however, its effect on value is relatively insignificant on a 16-year-old daily driver like this.

The paint isn't as bad as I thought, first time I saw it it was raining, it isn't gorgeous but it's good enough

I'd use Mobil 1 High Mileage 5W-30 in winter, and 10W-40 there in summer, based on the fact that those engines sometimes had sludging issues.
