Boy my spelling is bad! Anyway, I just got a 1998 Toyota T-100 2wd x-tra cab truck. 78K miles, Looks as if the oil hasn't been changed in a long time! I mean a Looong time. Good thing is that it had a good filter. I read on Truck world forums that for the toyotas, The OEM filter is as good as it gets. and this is what it had on it. I do not believe that It was the original though. (don't laugh) a friend of mine bought a car and I think it DID have the original filter on it [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]
I replaced with PZ10-30 and a Fram tough guard filter. (it was all I had) and will run it about a 1000 miles and then Change it again. This time with the Toyota filter.
1. What Oil do you use and why?
2. What filters (Air and Oil) and why?
3. What is the best way to get a little more power from your stock engine? This one has a 3.4 liter V-6 EFI Dual overhead cam 24 valve. engine in it. I was thinking exhaust mods first but am not sure.
I asked these questions over at truck world BBS and was met with staunch silence.
here is some intresting info about oil filters
