So let me get this straight. You had the ability to create a thread to sell your products but instead chose to SPAM my thread after having only 17 views?
Why don't I just give you a booth in the store? How big would you like it? Better yet, I can set you up with one in FRONT of the store.
But before I do that, maybe you should get a valid set of MDS sheets for your products and not a "letter from a granite company that uses your products".

|Re: Fluid Specs Q & A Thread by VolvoS60(m): 3:15am On Jan 25|
First question: I have some enquiries about a couple of 4wd Toyota vehicles - a V8 Toyota Land Cruiser (2008 model year, 2UZ FE engine, 4.7L) and a V8 Toyota Sequoia (2008 model year, 3UR FE engine, 5.7L). While the Sequoia was built for the US market and bought there, this particular Land Cruiser was bought locally. There are usually no problems buying US aftermarket parts or OEM for the Sequoia but the Land Cruiser owner cannot confidently buy US aftermarket parts (or even OEM) because the vehicle VIN is not recognized. All too often, its a trial and error thing and he ends up with the wrong parts. Very frustrating. Any suggestions?
Second question: We checked the transfer case fluid of both vehicles some months ago and the fluid seemed ok - no darkening or visible signs of degradation – it was clear that both vehicles are very rarely used in low range (4LO). The transfer case fluid has never been changed - in 11 years. Would you still recommend a drain and refill? 11 years is a long time after all…
Third question: During our checks a drain and refill of the front and rear differential oil for both vehicles was done. Unlike the transfer case fluid, the diff oil 'looked' very dirty and we felt it was necessary to drain and refill. Quite straightforward although finding the right oil was quite a challenge and we had to settle for Pure Guard Gear oil (85W 90, GL-5). Toyota recommends some weird OEM fluid (Genuine Toyota Differential LT fluid 75W-85) that is very expensive and hard to find. Any options you would suggest for the next drain and refill?
Fourth question: The ATF seemed ok (still a clear pink? red) but no one seems to know exactly when it should be serviced and how. Your technicians said given the low mileage (less than 60,000km for both vehicles) no service required for now. Owners manual merely recommends an inspection at given intervals. Vehicle owner doesn't want to wait until its too late. When is a good time?
Also, when performing transmission service - do your technicians only drain and refill the ATF from the sump or they also disconnect the oil cooler lines to get rid of the old ATF in the torque converter?
|Re: Fluid Specs Q & A Thread by radautoworks: 4:42am On Jan 25|
VolvoS60:usually the sump but we have the flush machine to empty whole system
|Re: Fluid Specs Q & A Thread by VolvoS60(m): 5:15pm On Jan 25|
Thanks for the prompt response.
Q1. Motor parts - Commonplace parts such as oil filters are a problem. For example, this land cruiser uses a spin-on oil filter. If we try to buy the filter from amazon/summit racing/rock auto etc. and we key in the model year, make of vehicle etc., we will be sold a cartridge filter. Same thing happened when I tried to buy an oil filter from your shop. (Unlike our vehicle, the 2008 Land Cruiser sold in the US is a 5.7L V8 and the oil filters are different). Other parts such as fuel pump assemblies are also a problem - we have two stand alone fuel filters that were bought in error for this land cruiser whereas the correct fuel filter is built into the fuel pump assembly. We are now wary of buying any more parts until we are sure of what we are doing - the VIN would sort this problem out immediately so why don't these merchants use that instead?
Q2. Transfer Case - thanks. Will check the fluid every now and then to be sure it isn't degraded.
Q3. Differential oil (front and rear) - Thanks - although synthetic lubricant is preferred (Red Line or Penrite) when we are ready to drain & refill.
Q4. ATF: From what you say, at just under 60,000km, we are over due for a drain and refill. From personal experience with my own vehicle (Corolla), a drain and refill is definitely better than doing nothing but the old ATF fluid left in the system quickly dilutes the new refill and the benefits of fresh ATF are lost almost immediately. Under what circumstances would you perform a flush? A flush would definitely get rid of nearly all the old ATF but it has its (many) critics. Check out the link below and tell me what you think - I personally prefer the method used by these guys. Do you think this method can also be used to drain and refill for other Toyotas (Corollas, Camrys, etc.)?
|Re: Fluid Specs Q & A Thread by dru23(m): 7:15am On Jan 26|
Do you have full synthetic oil filter for 2012 corolla.. And the price please.. It is for a customer
|Re: Fluid Specs Q & A Thread by radautoworks: 10:40am On Jan 28|
|Re: Fluid Specs Q & A Thread by VolvoS60(m): 7:08pm On Jan 29|
I assume this was meant for someone else? I am a humble parts buyer like most of us here...

Q1: When I checked your shop a while ago the VIN option didn't work out for me. Non-USA vehicle so your database didn't respond.
Q2: I saw the synthetic diff oil on my last visit to your shop a few days ago. Will explore that option ASAP.
Any views on the Project 200 link I provided and their procedure for ATF drain & refill?
|Re: Fluid Specs Q & A Thread by dru23(m): 9:13pm On Jan 29|
No. It was meant for radauto

So this was a first, my usual spec screen wouldn't pull up for your car so I had to do it manually
ATF Genuine Honda Z1 ATF or idemitsu type H or dexIII
Coolant Zerex Maxlife
Refrigerant oil PAG-46
|Re: Fluid Specs Q & A Thread by CityNGR: 1:00pm On Jan 30|
@radautoworks why can't we just browse through your stock and order what we need without unnecessary gate keeping or am I missing something about how to shop on your platform?
|Re: Fluid Specs Q & A Thread by ciouxox(m): 2:25pm On Jan 30|
radautoworks:, Do you stock any, what will it cost me? Thank you so much.
|Re: Fluid Specs Q & A Thread by radautoworks: 10:23pm On Jan 30|
We don't control our website. It's done by corporate. None of the Carquests or Advances outside of the USA have web portals for ordering. It's a problem with currencies and local taxes, live inventory and regional blocks. While we all run under the same server, it's proved impossible so far to do for the over 30,000 items we carry. Do you have ANY idea how much easier my life would be!!??
But you sort of CAN find what you want. You visit advance's USA site, find the matching parts for your car and then contact us with part numbers for stock status and pricing .... It you could simply send us your VIN and let us do the legwork.

radautoworks:This is still a big issue. The next shop with a real online presence is gonna send you into retirement!
|Re: Fluid Specs Q & A Thread by radautoworks: 1:37am On Jan 31|
If they figure out a way to do it, it will be a temporary disadvantage. It hasn't been done yet in any non-American store so once someone figures it out, you can be sure all the other brands won't be far behind. Being in Nigeria doesn't help either as I'm sure you know there are a lot of region issues with Nigeria. They (corporate) had to make a lot of exceptions on the back end to get the system to even work at all here!
