Hi
I had problem with engine noise every morning until heating up. Something like rotating wrong! Many mechs told many wrong advice. End of day I found my engine oil filter is blocked and oil pump pushing hard so was making noise. Unfortunately I figure it out when my engine warning light on!!! Then I washed engine and changed filter as well as oil. It solved noise problem but still I am not sure my engine is ok, because I run over 200 km with this sound (it means engine worked while low oil supply)

Atf ws or atf t4 which is better


cell phone , ?
join a real Toyota forum and get advice.?
there are no facts on what is better, on any oil.
there are no independent tests. (besides API ,etc)
google"bob the oil guy" and read a month and learn , there is no answers. for sure, religion on names, and opinions... none of which matter.
Why not ask Toyota, you do know that some opted transmissions need special ATF, right, ?
and can vary by country, you do know that USA cars run different lube than say EU? Europe?
this forum is www , the world wide web.
4speed auto
or CVT?


if not CVT
then T4?
so says this post (google works try it)

http://www.toyotalexusforum.com/toyota-camry-club/5595-toyota-type-t4-dexron-iii-transmission-fluid-issue.html

if CVT
ask Toyota personally, do not mix fluids or guess.

IMO it's more likely that you have the wrong grade of ATF. It's very important to have the correct grade. The following site shows this:
http://www.nairaland.com/1364064/automatic-gearbox-problems
each car manufacturer has recommended grades of Automatic Transmission Fluid, BMW is no exception. the following website for BMWs may bring you more accurate data:
http://www.nairaland.com/1364064/automatic-gearbox-problems
Apparently CTSC is the supplier for BMWs via the web.
Generally auto gearboxes have drain plugs and filler plugs to enable oil change in routine maintenance. But I would definately go back to the garage where you had the last service and ask politely about the grade of ATF used, before considering an 'oil change'.
Good Luck

What are the service interval for items on the 2006 toyota prado


For oil and filter - every 3 -5,000 miles. rotate tires at same interval. air filter is on condition, so check it at oil change and clean it until it needs replacement. trans. fluid is on condition along with filter or I believe 60k miles. Belts and hoses are every 3 years or based on condition. Get a maintenance guide from an auto parts store or go to the dealer for an owner's manual, which will have all of this information.

Need tire size for 1995 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado


Big tires:

1. Hard time for your drive train (clutch, cv joint, tranny, diff gears) , power steering, brakes
2. Slow acceleration
3. possible fender damage
4. turning radius problem
5. increase body roll and instability
Advantages:
1. good ground clearance
2. softer ride
3. Enhanced off-road ability

tires your planning to buy can fit into your existing rims.
My personal opinion is for you to go for the bigger tires!
