Tip & How-To about Toyota 4Runner
I have a friend who called me and said his Toyota four runner had stopped. I came to assist him to find out he just got an oil change. I look under the vehicle and there were traces of excessive oil leak. I found out that whoever did the oil change did not screw in the oil filter in and so the engine locked up. When getting an oil change before you even drive the car inspect for any oil leak with the engine idling. There are a lot on incompetent mechanics out there. Some of them are even ASE certified!! The one who told me a car will run for 3 days without oil was ASE certified, that's scary. He didn't want to be called a mechanic he said he is a technician. The place where he got the oil change is also a 24 hour shopping place and has stores all over the country ( you know which one I am talking about). I can't mention names.
