This is probably one of the best UOA I have ever seen.

Boring. Just what I'd expect to see on a 4.7 Toyota! That thing will run indefinitely. Great autobox behind it, too. Aisin A750. Same unit as I have in my Tacoma with 225K. Runs like it did the day I bought it new in 2007.

Fabulous report! With that TBN have you considered a longer run?

The only TBN I did was back in 2015, but I would suspect it to be similar. I've been doing 5k oil changes and this is the longest I've gone at 18 months. Having a second car it going to throw a wrench into my normal OCI since I'll be driving it less. I don't know if I'll get 5k in the next two years on the 4R. The Mustang will be another story as I plan on taking it on road trips and it has an OLM (still under warranty, too, so I have to change it when it says to).

That is a very good report.

I assume all the previous UOAs were M1 0W40 too?

Good engine and a good oil.

You are not running that 4.7 enough, 80K in 13 years? The wheels will fall off before the engine gives up.

I bought the truck in 2013 with 46700, a one owner vehicle. I actually flew to Las Vegas to pick it up since these V8s were snapped up very quickly. I have only used M1 0W40 and I don't know what was used before then.

lol @chinee I can help it! I have a very short commute to work which is about a 12 mile round trip. The 5.0 I acquired last year will be getting more miles as it will be my road trip choice...let alone it's just more fun to drive!
