I use AMSOIL motor oil (5-30W) in my 2002 Tundra 4X4. When I use it the truck I get about 20% better mileage and runs amazingly better. (I use either an AMSOIL Filter or OEM Toyota....the rest are sub-par).

When you tow your milage is going to go way down. If this is something you do a lot Then you need to invest in a on the fly ajustable computer and it will change your computer settings for the job you are doing on the fly. It will give you better performance for towing when you want to tow. better milage for driving when you want to drive. You can also use it if you want to change the tire size, it will allow you to change the tire size without loosing your speedomiter settings.

MISFIRE # 1 WHAT SIDE IS IT ON WHICH SIDE IS THE # 1 PLUG ON


The left (drivers) side cylinder head is numbered from front (radiator)
1-3-5-7

The right (passenger) side cylinder head is numbered from front
2-4-6-8

per 2001 Toyota repair manual page EM-103 and 105. The numbers are not on the engine, from what I can see, but the manual is very specific on this info.

I have 2002 ford focus new spark plug and wire and air filter and fuel filter snd i still have a very poor gas milage


It could be 2 things. The grade of gas you're using and / or your style of driving. Bump up to the next level of gas and don't put your foot into it as much. Get off the gas earlier when coming to a stop. I have a full size SUV and I average 24 MPG city.

Need to replace cargo & third break light how do i


if its the same as an 06 Tundra, you should be able to remove the lense cover from the back of your truck cab with a screwdriver and pull the light bulbs out...Do not remove the screws below the lense cover that removes the fixture, they have a screw insert that will fall into your truck's body and get lost.....hehehehe I learned that from my own experience...good luck!
