Ace, I'm not sure how you can call the supercharger a waste of time. In California, it's the only option for smog reasons. It's a factory part, there are no coolant or oil lines to leak or miles of...

I have a supercharged 3.4 now, but my 3.0/5-speed never felt gutless or struggled like you describe. Something is definitely wrong and you should start with a maintenance sweep. I'm not saying dump...

No problem. I really like the OEM 5-spokes but like the split-spokes a touch more. Graphite-colored wheels look really good on white vehicles.

Our Nissan Leaf has factory LED headlights and they are a simple reflector design, no projector.



I have not purchased LED headlights for my 4Runner yet, and that's partly due to some of the...

The O2 sensor replacement seemed to have worked. I did my 2-mile (each way) commute to work 5-days last week (been recovering from a cold and not wanting to ride my bike) and did a 225 mile trip on...

Assuming a 5% drop in economy (the stated range is 2%-8%), that's a little over 1 MPG drop, which is roughly consistent with what my fuel economy checks have revealed.

It sounds like you lost 2 MPG with 1) a tire and wheel change, 2) a brake upgrade (which adds 5 lbs of unsprung weight on each front wheel) and 3) a 2" lift. Meanwhile, I took a 3.5 MPG hit from...

I was thinking of PM'ing you to see if you noticed a change, as I have as well. The increased ethanol content in our fuels is reducing mileage and it also wears out O2 sensors quicker. Because my...

The autos sap a lot of power. A 3.4 auto accelerates about the same as a 3.0 rig with a standard transmission. When I was shopping for a 4Runner I thought something was wrong with the first one I...

The manual is available from 1996-2000. The 2001-2002 model year 3rd gens were automatic only. Sadly, Americans repeatedly choose automatics over manual SUVs, so Toyota made less than 5% of them...

My last truck was a 1994 Xtra Cab SR5 V6 5-speed. It was a fantastic truck, my only complaint being the fuel economy. I always thought mine was reasonably powered, even with 32" tires, but the key...

Did this start after a timing belt replacement? It sounds like the cam timing on one bank of cylinders is off, i.e., the cam gears are not properly aligned on the timing belt.
