    His mannerism takes a bit of getting used to, but he knows his Toyotas.

    Yes I agree, but it's good to hear from an actual Toyota mechanic.

    We had cam tower oil leaks on our 5.7 Sequoia. Thankfully it was still under warranty when I noticed it.

    It took the mechanic at the dealership nearly a week to fix it. They had to completely tear the engine down. We haven't had any problems ever since. They did a good job.

    That was a great video. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing the rest of the series. Definitely no regrets in dropping my Bronco reservation and buying a 4Runner instead.

    Me too,

    A lot of his videos focus on Toyota hybrid passenger cars, so the fact that he is doing a deep dive into 4Runners is nice.

    At around the 9 minute mark he talks about why the oil filter is positioned where it is, as part of the oil cooling system. It makes you wonder if all the topside oil filter relocators are making a mistake by messing with it.

    I was wondering the same thing. I like the old saying, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it".

    I consider myself a pretty good mechanic but I don't think that qualifies me to second guess an automotive engineer.

    Blacked out badges, window deflectors, smoked 3rd brake light. I have a Borla muffler on order as well as some color matched engine cover stickers. I'll be painting the stock wheels soon as well. Falken tires in the fall as well.
    I just watched these yesterday! Yeah, makes me even happier with my choice. I'm sure this vehicle will outlast me and I'm OK with that. One of my grand daughters will inherit it.

    Yes, they do. And for good reason. Remember the Boeing 777 with Rolls Royce engines that landed short of London because of ice in the fuel.

    As far as the 4Runner, this is good thinking. When off-roading or in 4WD-Lo there is not going to be much air flowing in the front of the truck.
