To the OP, carry guns should be broken down every month or at least every other month, for inspection and lubrication. The chamber should be bone dry. Most pistol barrels are nitride, stainless, or chrome lined, so they dont really need any oil insi

Until the next oil change, there's only ever 28 quarts of oil total in my possession! That's the combined amount in all my engines' crankcases, don't have room to hoard so much like people here do! Haha

Why spend the money on Amsoil when you can get the Pennzoil locally? Seems like a no-brainer to me! It's hard finding PUP anywhere so you should take advantage of it! It will go 8k just fine in that engine, Toyota engines are pretty gentle on oil as

The 3.8 in my 2007 has never felt underpowered even when fully loaded with family and vacation gear while driving through mountains. Idles smooth. The only issue is the oil burning since new.

This is the worst looking orange can I've seen on here. I would not want to use this filter size in an orange can. In the 3614 size it would be wise to upgrade to the Ultra. The 7317 orange cans have looked great. Unlike this 3614. Thanks Captain f
