1999 Toyota 4Runner strut replacement
Replacing the struts in my 1999 Toyota 4Runner 2wd. This is not a how to
video, compressing the coil spring to replace the strut is very dangerous.
There's my disclaimer, proceed with caution. This video is very long, I
tried to cut out and speed up as many parts as possible but still show the
full process. Filmed January 2012.
1999 Toyota 4Runner shock replacement
Replacing the rear shocks in my 1999 Toyota 4Runner. Original shocks had
230,000 miles on them. We will see how long these Monroes last. They do
ride nice, just a little softer ride than stock. Filmed January 2012

I removed the pcv hose on my 99 4runner and let it suck in seafoam to clean
out any carbon buildups in the intake and cylinders.

How to change transmission fluid in an 07 Toyota Tacoma V6 PreRunner (2005-2010 models)
This is a short video showing how to change the transmission fluid in a
2007 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner V6. Toyota recommends transmission fluid to
be changed every 30k miles. Make sure you use genuine Toyota transmission
fluid and I recommend draining, filling, driving around for a couple days,
and then drain and fill again. It will take about 3 qts of fluid to drain
the transmission twice.

Here is the 'uncut' version of the oil change video that I did some time
ago, the one thing I wish I had done differently in this video is that I
would have shown putting a little bit of oil into the filter before
installation as this would help with lubrication during start up.

Restore Engine Treatment
Restore Engine Treatment: Saved two cars from having to be rebuilt. Over
100,000 miles and still going. Use this on a car with over 50,000 miles. I
won't use this with synthetic oils. Worked well with 20w50 and VR1 Straight
50w oil. Stopped car from smoking, and will now add this for every oil
change. Make sure to top off oils until the product has time to work. If
your car is smoking and using 1 quart every 200-1,000 miles you will have
to keep topping off the oil until the product works and you will notice the
oil not being low after 250 miles. It should stop smoking after 500 miles
or so. Good Luck!
Synthetic Oil Basics
Technically, Synthetic Oil originates as traditional mineral based motor
What separates the two is the level of advanced engineering, refinement and
criteria that goes into this modern engine lubricant.
In short, there is no other routine maintenance contributor that can
provide better protection, performance and longevity than today's Synthetic
Extreme Weather Protection:
Under early morning sub-zero winter starts or summertime high temperature
stop-and-go traffic, Synthetic Oils are engineered to deliver vital engine
protection and reliable performance year-round.
Cold Weather Pour Test:
In this laboratory test, a Synthetic-Oil and a Synthetic-Mineral-Blend have
been frozen overnight at minus 40 below.
This pour test illustrates conclusively the cold-start readiness of
Even after six minutes, the blended oil can't keep up.
And, those white globs you see are wax - a standard component of
conventional mineral-based motor oil.
Clearly, Synthetic oil is the best way to ensure that your vital engine
components are adequately lubricated during cold cranking.
New & Old
With very few exceptions, Synthetic Oil is a wise choice for all new and
Modern engine components are built to higher tolerances and levels of
precision and the superior lubricating properties of Synthetic Oil deliver
the finest day-to-day protection against wear.
Older-engines, performance-engines and power-plants-under-heavy-load can
all benefit from the advanced lubrication and low-abrasion attributes of
In all situations, engine seals and gaskets are protected and remain
pliable and effective.
All major auto manufacturers support and specify the use of API certified
lubricants and Synthetic Motor Oil meets and even exceeds all standards and
The advanced additives developed for Synthetic Oil help contribute to
cleaner and more efficient operation during the entire span of the
recommended oil change interval.
Factory Warranties remain intact, un-compromised and supported.
In any case, the best warranty is the one you never have to use and proper
routine maintenance is an effective way to achieve that long-term goal.
Always check your manual and adhere to the manufacturer's recommended
Today's Synthetic Motor Oil is fully compatible with traditional mineral
This means that you can safely upgrade to synthetic oil... or in a pinch,
switch back or partially top-up with conventional mineral oil.
When you factor-in a decrease in engine wear and fuel consumption,
upgrading to Synthetic Oil can add up to long term savings and better
performance throughout the life of your vehicle.
Ultimately, the goal is for fewer repairs, so that you and your car can
spend more of your valuable time on the road and not in the shop.
Since they were first commercially introduced in the mid seventies,
Synthetic Motor Oils have constantly evolved to serve the needs of motorist
and the cars they drive.
Today, there is no better choice than Synthetic Motor Oils for maintaining
engine reliability, performance and protection.
