Re: Have you ever Dropped the Oil Pan?
Thanks for the feedback guys.
The same could be said for dropping the transmission pan. Toyota says that they only recommend a drain and fill on the tranny.
I've had my 98 Since 2006 (I'm the second owner). I've also used the gunk motor flush on this engine every two years justd prior to getting an emissions test done. I used to use Dino in the summer and full synthetic in the winter, but I switched over to full synthetic year around 2 years ago.
I'm not really worried about leaks. Hey I just did the timing belt on this van this summer, so If I can do that, then dropping the pan is no big sweat. I just want to see how dirty the bottom of the pan is.
I'm not expecting a big shocker.
I'm heading to pennsylvania for the Thanksgiving weekend, so the following weekend when I get back I'll be changing oil and dropping the pan. Stay tuned!
