My truck had 32k miles on it, when I got it back to my shop I did an oil change, trans service, fuel filter and put my K&N on it, cleaned out the throttle body with carb cleaner, cleaned the MAF and just did a overall check up on it. Works great!

lol.. not to bring back an older toppic but i actually worked on a car like this only it was way way worse...

car came in with a rod knock drianed oil, or should i say removed the drain plug but nothing came out..???

when we removed the engine and took off the oil pan we found out why.. the oil IN the pan looked like someone baked brownies, one solid chunk of sludge it wouldent move let alone pour. it was so thick that with the oil pan removed the oil pickup-tube was completly encased in a block of sludge...

the customer just kinda said he forgot to change the oil, we didnt really know how long it had been.

Now see, to me it looks like they sheered off the wiggling pin for the wobbling shaft. This obviously caused the rotator splint to snap in two, ultimately resulting in the torque divider exploding. But thats just my untrained eye making assumptions.

I change my oil every spring whether it needs it or not...

Seriously, though, I'm trying the new Amsoil 0W20 that's the "right" oil for my truck instead of the 0W30 I was using. I just put it in with one of the Ea microfiber filters. In a year, we'll see how it held up...

hahahaha. if there was a vote on taht, i would totally be in favor or it. theres so many friggen idiots out there driving around these days, accidence about to make an accident. i lost my license for being retarded and seeing how fast i could get to my dads house and back to my gramma's before the sun went down so i could finish whatever it was i was doing. not for spacing out, watching a plastic bag floating in the wind, or watching a dog take a dump and running into someone/thing. this does however remind me tho, that when i do get my license back, i should prolly get an oil change and a full on tune up.
