Had some free time this morning so I changed it's oil and filter. This time it got Napa 10w-40 and a proselect filter.

Milage as of 8a this morning. Still runs great and passes the California emissions test.


I do believe that the rear axle is getting noisey.
96 tacoma 2.4l.

For curiosity sake- highway miles? traffic? city? Be curious to know the hours if most of the miles are city and high traffic.

I had 300K miles on my shop truck it was a Ford F250 with a 5.4 and i did the same.. oil changes were cheap oil and cheapest filters it was neglected and abused.. and ran good when i sold it.

Mostly very short trips to the auto parts store or taking customers home.
My boss did take it about 40 miles each way on the fwy a few weeks ago to get a Radiator core.

This is obviously a lie because you're not using top of the line oil and filters...

Similar to the Honda Civic I used to own. Couldn't believe I had to replace a tensioner and idler pulley at 190k miles. Totally unacceptable...LOL

Better news is-should be ZERO RUST in the CA high desert! That seems to kill more Tacos around here than mechanical failure-but most of them still have good (but rusty) rear axles! crazy

Hey, it's a Toyota... you could throw it off a cliff and it would still get 90 MPG.
