Castrol Edge 5w-30, 9200 miles, 230,000 Toyota Tun #4591940

Hello & Good Morning. Looking for advice, I have a couple questions on my UOA report. 2000 Toyota Tundra V8 230, 000 miles + and my current 10,000 mile interval, what synthetic oil change interval would you now recommend? Should I stay with the Castrol? Given this detailed analysis and the current age and mileage and considering I drive 85% highway miles (with very conservative (age 56) hahaha driving mph), what would be an estimate on the life (mileage) of this engine ? Just curious and I know there is no way to be sure, just looking for an estimate, which will give me the overall condition of the engine and somewhat a life expectancy of it. I realize of course it all depends on my maintenance up keep also. This has been a great truck and cosmetically is still in great shape, due to dedicated washing and waxing. I have recently contemplated taking it off of my work commute (100 mile roundtrip each day). I have actually scaled back since this past May since my wife and I upgraded another vehicle, but it toooo much fun to drive. I would include a pic, but need some help. Many thanks for this community.

Ernie

There's nothing there that would say this engine is in imminent danger of self-destruction. Beyond that any life estimates would be conjecture. A UOA does not somehow predict remaining life of an engine.

I've gotten nearly 400,000 miles on my 1MZ-FE so far and it isn't dead yet, so if that is any indication of the longevity of a Toyota engine (even one with a somewhat bad reputation) then I think you can anticipate continued service from yours.

9,200 miles and 1/2 qt. makeup oil, not too bad. With that many total miles on the engine, you should be pleased.

Thanks for the replies. Most of the time I use Fram filters.

For that long of OCI those are pretty good numbers except for the SILICON. What kind of air filter are you using and when did you change it last?

Thanks for replying. Air filter brand, I'm unsure, about 20-25,000 miles probably. Which would be about a year.

Simple, click reply then click the tab with the blue up arrow on it. Which is the 5th box over on top of the dialogue box. smile

Fram has nice air filters and available at Walmart. But shop the price online and reserve it at the store. I got an air filter for the Matrix for around $11 which was $18 at the store. Same thing with the cabin filter. Fram Fresh Breeze with carbon.

Very nice and like the color. Looks like it has 30k miles on it. Maybe not even that much! smile

Awesome. Don't forget to change the timing belt. That 4.7L is one of Toyotas best...then again what engine isnt.

Just had timing belt/water pump changed within 1000 miles. 2nd time since I've owned in 6 years.

Is that the regular ILSAC Edge 5W-30 or is it the A3/B4 Edge Euro 5W-30 ?
