Most likely, you have had the wrong weight oil installed during your oil changes. The 09s are VERY specific to the exact weight of oil.
Use ONLY what is printed on the oil fill cap.

I would like to know how to get better gas mileage on a car-do I need a new air filter-it is only a 4 cylinder car.


The best way to improve gas mileage is to change your driving habits. K&N filters claim they can increase mileage, but there really is not 'miracle device' that can do so. Make sure the vehicle is running well, plugs and wires are all in good shape, air and fuel filters are clean.

Stay on highways as much as possible, and drive around with a glass of water that has no lid and is filled pretty high. Attempt to drive without spilling the water. This will drastically improve economy.

How to give a tune up for a 1990 toyota 4runner?


with many new modern fuel injected vehicles its hard to give them a tune up without plugging them into a computer or getting an aftermarket computer chip and programmer.

however, if your toyota is running a little rough and getting bad gas mileage i would reccomend a new set of spark plugs and wires. and maybe a new fuel filter, i would do the spark plugs first, if the results are not satisfactory then change the spark plug wires, and if the results are still not up to your standards comparing the way it used to run to how it runs now then change the fuel filter. doing all these things will make the vehicle run clean and efficient like it should. and if it doesnt than im sure you have a vacum or oxygen sensor problem.

just wanna hop up the performance a little bit and get better fuel mileage?
then i would suggest and personally recommend a complete K&N cold air intake kit.

Usually when it comes to bad gas mileage, an air filter change, fresh oil and filter, fuel filter and making sure you have no vacuum leaks....

Also, believe it or not, improper tire pressure will affect your gas mileage.

New spark plugs and wires are a "nicety" but if there is not damage to them, then they will be fine.

BAD ON GAS


You should be getting close to 360-390...depending on the type of driving you are doing. Increasing your gas mileage could be as simple as getting a fresh oil and filter job, change your air filter, change your fuel filter...and a biggie believe it or not, make sure you have the proper tire pressure. This will kill your mileage faster than anything else.

City MPG: 16-18 mpg
Combination MPG: 18-21
Highway MPG: Approximately 26 mpg

Horrible Gas Mileage


i would change the fuel filter and i would take a flashlight and to make sure none of my fuel injectors are leaking and i would also put the car on ramps and put something behind the rear wheels and check all of my gas lines under the car as while.
