    Owned an 05 Tundra until 2020, the engine, trans, TC and diffs were all tight at 208k. The quality on gen-1 Tundras is just unbelievable. A clean one will sell at a significant premium.
    From experience I'd say those shocks have been toast since 80k miles, most OEM shocks don't make it to 100k. I put Bilsteins on all around at 90k and it made a huge difference on stability.
    The lower A arms on the front definitely need new bushings at 200k but Toyota only sells the complete arms. (Removing the bushings, and installing after-market ones, requires quite a bit of brute force and fire…) However, doing these bushings and the upper/lower ball joints really improves the ride quality.
    Your craftsmanship in spotting all of this quickly is commendable 🙂

    My oil filter housing sheared in half doing the paper towel trick lol. It took forever to chisel it out. I replaced it with an aluminum one and it's far superior

    I have to love it, you could put these plugs in while in the break room. Talk about an extension ..

    Hey how do you get rid of cobwebs in my car engine bay all over the place. Drive it every day and how they get into my car bay beets me

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Marc Shaner says:

    I have recently purchased several tools due to watching your videos, some have been rather expensive. On the less expensive side, I did buy that drain plug remover magnetic wiggly thing, never seen one before, pretty cool.
    Watching your videos is costing me $$$, but in a good way. Thanks.

    A little leaf blower action (or compressor air) afterward is a good way to get rid of remaining standing water…just sayin'

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars bobbg says:

    My 2012 scion tc has that type of filter element, there is a drain plug on the center of the plastic you remove to drain the filter with, so you don't get covered in oil taking it off, its just a 3/8" drive squar hole you put a rachette in without any sockets thats also what the small o ring in the filter kits box is for it also has to be replaced. My tc uses 0 w 20 synthetic oil. Ill only buy toyota parts. No aftermarket anything on my toyotas.
    Ecpt tires and struts. I got 233k miles out of my frt brake pads that came with the car on my celica 2001. Ive never seen any other brand car do that.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Vern Rogers says:

    …..It might be one of those 8 quart ones (or the drain plug wasn't reinstalled) lol….Peace from Calgary bro !

    The vids are great, you seem to enjoy yourself. No parts cannon, no extra unneeded work, nice to see. Did I see a small O ring with the oil filter ?

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gary Whitford says:

    What you need is a set of sockets with a magnet built in them so you can get those hard to get bolts and screws without dropping them

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Neal Fenster says:

    Your “Wobblies” are neat. Have you ever tried a flex shaft drive? I do enjoy your videos, I am glad when I worked on engines you could reach the spark plugs without all the hassle. 🙂

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andrew_koala says:

    Besides a thorough engine bay cleaning requirement – the vehicle also needs
    a wheel alignment and some respectable tyres – such as GOOD YEAR – PIRELLI
    or other reputable brand.
    Only seven minutes into the video and it appears that the owner has any maintenance
    done as a last resort – rather than ongoing preventative maintenance.
    I wonder how the owner would feel if Airlines only did aircraft maintenance as a last
    resort ?
    More concerned over a tyre pressure warning light than whee alignment and a partly
    worn tyre. — Tyre pressure is important and equally so is the running gear.
    Perhaps their life is only worth seven cents.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John R. Russell says:

    If you wash the engine before you start you can keep your hands cleaner. Just goes to show that a high mileage Lexus stays in better shape than a low mileage Chrysler but those TPM's will drive you crazy with the crazy prices to keep them up.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alouis Schäfer says:

    0w20… oof.
    Id put in 5w30. These super thin oils really exist because they improve engine efficiency.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alouis Schäfer says:

    How the hell is that one Hankook in the rear basically new and the other tire is completely trashed? New tires go on in pairs!

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Amzar Nacht says:

    What did you spray on that battery?

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Peat says:

    Here's the thing with filling oil – the manufacturer takes into account residiual oil so long as you use their recommended drain method (increasingly sucking it out over draining it)

    If you fill 'to your experience' and the engine dies – you have to take responsibility
    If you fill to the recommended amount (using the recommended method) – and the engine dies – not your problem at all

    Fixing cars is a blame-heavy job – you touched it, you own it – you know this Ray – you have to cover your ass sometimes…

    I now take pictures of some cars before I work on em to show marks/damage/missing bits – such is the way

    Why didn't you video the rear-end, transmission, and transfer case fluid exchange

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars wayne cartwright says:

    hard to do in the air , but bump that car over and let it idle for 5 seconds……another quart will drain and it will evacuate the oil in the filter…….great video…..

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars bob fraser says:

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars The Underground Lair of the Squankum says:

    Ray, why chase falling COP bolts? Why not just get a set of magnetic sockets?

    I only recently invented this tip and feel foolish for being decades late with it: when unscrewing a screw or small bolt/nut I fear might make a break for it, I put my "pencil" magnetic pickup tool right next to it as I'm undoing it, that way, when it has come loose, it goes to the magnet.

    Lang Tools make simple plastic/magnet inserts for normal sockets to make them magnetic, push 'em in, push' em out. Cheaper and take up very little tool chest space, but need more fiddly time than a pro might want to mess with.
