I decided it was time to turn in my 2012 Acura TL. The car had nothing mechanically wrong with it. I started to realize I needed a truck. My Acura could only hold so much in it. I remember when I
was remodeling the Condo I sold. I had door trim going from the windshield to the back window. I had door trim going from the back
window to outside of the passengers side window. Not to long ago
I had to transport a car engine in the back seat. So I went and traded
the car in for a 2017 Toyota Tundra. It was like a Christmas Present
for myself. I honestly am enjoying the truck. It is my first brand new
vehicle. The truck comes with synthetic oil in it. But its not AMSOIL.
For me, that’s a problem. If I am going to make payments for 66 Months, I want to make sure my engine is going to get the best protection. So several quarts of AMSOIL Signature Series 0W-20
and an AMSOIL Oil Filter down to a drive through quick lube place.
They told me my car did not need an oil change but I insisted.
I was able to watch them drain my old oil, remove the old filter, put my new filter on, and fill it up with AMSOIL. I understand the majority of the people out their consider this excessive to do it this early, but its worth it for a better peace of mind. I honestly do not
want to buy another vehicle. Before going I kept searching around
the internet. It turns out a lot of people do this with new cars.
I usually change my own oil myself but I never changed a cartridge filter before. I feel confident I can change this type of filter without any problems. I ordered some “Nerf” Bar or Side Steps from a small
small business out of Florida. They should be getting here shortly.
I am going to post some pictures of the install.
