    I have a pneumatic mityvac. I use it for transmission, brake and power steering services.


    i actually have 3 of them.. i bought them at auction. best things ever.

    With that radiator, I need to get that clamp and lower hose squared away ASAP. I drove across the bay today (about a 40 min drive with traffic), getting to the destination - damn I could smell coolant when I climbed out of the truck. No leaks mind you but I could smell it.

    when you do it make sure the aluminum on the inlet and outlet of the engine is clean. i use scotchbrite pads to make sure theres no corosion or anything.. if they look pitted. replace them. (doubt thats an issue for you though)

    good deal. will watch for it. was planning on cleaning the pink crusties off the pipe but the scotchbrite pad sounds better than a wire brush (inlet - thermostat housing).

    What is your take on that Lucas Oil Stabilizer additive?

    tundras idle oil pressure is like 10 psi min. the gauge is damn near at the bottom. tacomas are the same.
