Negative toyoman. It has nothing to do with the gps and map updates. Engine diagnostic and programming of user configurable options.

OEM only comes with bushings if it is packaged that way. I think Sewell sells them as a package. You can order them separately.

It's not about the additives. Its about the octane level. High compression engines need higher octane to run efficiently. Higher octane levels prevent pre-detonation. This is also of most...

It's better to be a bit over vs under. Checking on a totally flat surface after the vehicle is warm is best. You can suck some out of the dip stick tube if need be.

I did post my results in the main door lock actuator thread. The motor in the actuator is the same whether you have easy close or not. It's definitely worth doing yourself and saving 95%

Any reason why you flushed the engine? I'm not a fan of oil flushes in general. I think they do more harm then good. Especially, in modern sophisticated engines with very tight tolerances.

Great news! What you were experiencing was probably 90% due to the low fluid not the TSB. It helps but does not make that big of a difference but I agree. It is worth getting it done.

KYB is the OEM manufacturer. You can get them from RockAuto or similar for about $100. It's best to replace all 4 at the same time.
