Wow. Thanks for sharing. 01 - 03 owners should be very careful when replacing this valve. If you could not fish that out you would have to remove the valve cover.

The loss of efficiency with running 87 as the computer retards timing and equals a less then ideal detonation of the fuel in the cylinder is not a good thing. It is a safety system to prevent...

I have theory that the reason some people are loosing valve cover gaskets a lot earlier then others is related to clogged or malfunctioning PCV valves. It's interesting to look at.

I think you are right. Looks like 01-03 is a slightly different design. It's plastic with a grommet.

Cold start protection whether in warm or cold climates is superior with synthetic oils. It flows faster at the some viscosity as a dino. This is one of the main reasons I use it. 90% of engine wear...

I feel you. It will be done right. If you still have time, I would negotiate with them and maybe get your labor charge down when you pick up the car. Seriously. Just talk to the service manager and...

The mobile 1 extended performance is really good oil. Better then the standard synthetic from what I have read. Mobile also makes oil for Toyota.

Glad you found the problem. Too bad your cost is so high. Parts are about $250 for the 2 main mounts and labor is around $350 here locally.

You are probably overheating the amp because the sub you are running has an ohm rating is too low for it to handle. This explains why it take a little while for it to kick off. Try to get your sub up...

I would think condition and amount of mileage on the units makes a big difference. The set I purchased came off an 05 with only 53k miles on them.

Edit: I went back and found my eBay receipt. I...

The valve being stuck open or closed is not a good thing. It does a lot more then I realized, not just emissions.

Lower control arm bushes go before your struts. As struts wear they become more soft and you can actually use your body weight to bounce the car at each fender. Or the front end will dip a lot during...

It is nice to have. It was not offered when my UL was produced. Very few 04's got it. Anyway, it's a cool system although I'm not a fan of the PCS grill. You say you slammed on the brakes? Did it...

I have always liked the A8's design. Pretty bad reliability once you approach 100k miles.

Nice. Thanks for the review. It does have a 580 tread rating so this means you will get about 30 - 40 miles out of them. You need close to 700 to get 60k miles on a heavy LS. Keep us updated with how...
