  1. I may have it in PDF on CDROM. I will look for it as soon as I get settled back in.
  2. Thanks again for posting that link to the board.
  3. If you are using the braided steel brake lines that are lined with PTFE, as some of them are, they are compatible with all brake fluids. I use Valvoline Synpower DOT 3/4. It has a high boiling point.
  4. 1 - Are they "correct" about the front brake rotors and pads needing replacement? 2 - Are they correct about the rear brake drum needing replacement ? You know, without pysically seeing the rotors, I can't tell if they need to be replaced, but at that mileage? Sounds odd to me. As for the rear drum, I doubt that it can't be turned and used. Like fidgits said, get another opinion.
  5. How many miles are on it? And is it the proginal carburator on it?
  6. Whoa--you mean it hasn't been changed yet? Have you looked at it lately? The Sienna has 100k with original antifreeze. John
  7. Is that the oil you got the analysis done on?
  8. Yeah, but one of those years, I can't remember, there is a different biscuit/engine mount. But I suppose he'd just buy it at a junkyard and then make the swap.
  9. Thanks, Humanoid. Got my weekend project cut out for me.
  10. I still can't believe it blew a rod. You'd pretty badly have to abuse that motor.
  11. You're not under any warranty at this time, are you? I think the chemistry of the 2 technologies are similar, but if they are not and you try to use the Zerex, you'd probable be best to flush all of the old coolant out totally.
  12. Mind telling me who does oil anaylsis? I'd like to see what a 500 mile result would look like with the Mobil Drive Clean 7500.
  13. Way to go. Love to see a job well done by a do it yourselfer.
  14. Personally, I never wait more than 3000 miles for a total oil/filter change. And I am still using the Mobil Drive Clean 7500. I get good mileage with it, so you might do better with the Mobil 1 super synthetic. But I am hesitant to use ANY oil for more than 3000 miles. I think Humanoid has a good idea with 2 filter changes, but I don't do it. I also don't know about the BP oil. How long have they been making a synthetic? I used to use Nitrex sometimes.
  15. I think you can do it without taking the panel off...but if you were to do it yourself, there is a door fastener removal tool you can get at any auto parts store for less than 10 bucks. I have also removed the fasteners with a "pickle fork" (ball joint tool). They are small plastic push-in anchors that run around the perimiter of the door panel. Probably 8 or 10 of them. They are very easy to remove.
