The pay sucks for the risk involved. I watched a show on TV a few years ago that followed tower mechanics and it was said $15 an hour. Lowest bidder win likes over the road trucking resulting in low driver pay for sacrificing your life away from home

Robert, How the miles are accrued is a factor on how long the oil and filter can last. Your UOA might prove interesting. I would like to see it. Good luck.

Sometimes you have to add a bit more. The best way to mix it in is to do figure 8's. When we do a fresh build with new clutches we soak them in XL-3 before they go in the center section.

3000 is not a short OCI---1700 is. If the engine is dirty and the oil is cleaning good, then the oil will get dark fast. When the oil gets saturated with dirt and turns dark, change it out and run another short OCI.

I had an '87 4x4 Toyota with the 22R-E. I LOVED that pickup and that reliable little engine. Drove it across the U.S. in the middle of winter. I still miss it.

All good info above....add short tripping to the list of things that can cause the condition. If the integrity of the battery case is good then gluing a penny next to the positive terminal will get the corrosion on the penny instead of anywhere else

I super clean my windshields and then apply Aquapel which works well to fill in minor scratches and imperfections and causes rain to bead right off for up to 6 months.
