The dealership gives me free oil changes and tire rotation for as long as I own the truck. Answer 5 quarts will be over the dip stick full limit. My vehicles motor mounts are so corroded that I am afraid that the engine will fall out of the vehicle. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. Thanks Please or to join the conversation. I also told the dealer that the high rear brake light housing was melting from the heat of the lights.
It is directly rearward of the front axle. There are numerous other areas in the engine compartment and undercarriage that are completely corroded. My Tundra was just inspected by the local Toyota dealer and major corrosion was noted on the vehicle frame. They run synthetic oil and said they do the oil changes every 10 k. And tire rotation at 5 k.
However, they would not acknowledge any other corrosion or rot on the vehicle. I dont know if its true, but why take a risk, especially if you void your warranty. And yes, putting more than necessary can cause major problems for your car. I use Mobil 1 0W-20. .
I was running Mobile 1 in mine but I recently switched all my fluids to Redline and stepped up to 10W-40. Myself, I do 5k mile intervals. I just purchased a 2017 tundra. Also, the mounts that hold the radiator are so corroded they are almost gone. If an autoparts store can't tell you, call the dealership for the make of your car.
The truck has 80k miles. The vehicle was unable to restart. Put four and check dip stick to see whether you need more. I only use factory Toyota filters. I was wondering if it is okay to drain and refill without having to drop the pan and clean out the filter washable filter. After today I can add another 110 miles to the towing mileage. He said it's fine to put 10 k with synthetic but I think I'll just get them to change it at the 10 k and 20 k mark and I'll be changing it at the 5 k and 15 k marks etc.
If the car is soon to be scrapped it is up to the owner to decide whether a coolant renewal is necessary; bear in mind internal corrosion can cause engine failure. The vehicle was not repaired. Same filter fits my Tundra, Tacoma, and the wife's T4R. Antifreeze helps reduce corrosion and increases the boiling point of the coolant which can reduce heat related wear inside the engine but is only effective for a limited time and should be replaced regularly to maintain protection. Just sharing my 4 quarters, I mean 2 cents.
The contact stated that while driving at approximately 10 mph, the vehicle stalled without warning and the front passenger's side tire dislodged from the vehicle. I called Toyota customer service and they said there was no recall for any of these items and there was nothing they could do. So, I have a 2004 Toyota Tundra 3. Answer The correct answer is: 4. There are universal coolants such as Prestone which could be used but the engine was designed to be used with a specific coolant type so use that. Depending on the type of coolant it may need replacing only every few years or possibly even longer to provide maximum chemical-based protection to the engine internal parts.
I did this because my Tacoma sees the rev limiter frequently and I abuse the hell out of it offroad and Redline is supposed to be a better oil in regards to that. The frame is rusting badly and is becoming a safety hazard. In the manual it says that placing more o … il than necessary can cause problems. The bottom of the pan seems to be smaller than you would expect. Toyota applied a fiberglass based rustproofing to the frame. The vehicle is unsafe to drive and Toyota will not address it. It seems like though the transmission fluid has never been changed.
