    I can't find the air filter part under that part number online... There seems to be an issue on this particular air filter. No one seems to carry it...

    Quick question: I pick up my 2017 DCSB 4x4 Sport Wednesday and plan to check the ATF, grease the zerks if applicable, and tighten the leaf spring u-bolts. My question is: is there enough clearance to slide under the truck to do this? Or, do i need to put it on jack stands to perform these? I'm 5'10, 185.....

    I'd say there is enough space, but pretty crammed. I always prefer jacking mine up so I can put it in neutral and turn the driveshaft to get to the zerks ;)

    Time for a Toyotacare oil change then. My dealership was more than happy to do mine at 5000 miles.

    I actually went around 4600 for the 5k service since they needed to update tranny software I requested an oil change and they refused not until 10k

    This is not completely unusual. In the owners manual it refers to some oil consumption during the break in process. I believe this occurs because oil passes by the rings until they seal correctly during break in. Look around and under your engine. It's new it should be easy to spot a leak. Valve covers in the back and the CPS have been reported by some to leak. If you don't see a leak keep an eye on your exhaust. Blue/white smoke is usually an indicator of burning oil. All that said 1/2qt (or less based on your dipstick pic) down after 5000 miles during break in period isn't horrible . I'd keep an eye on it.

    So much for Toyotacare. Mine will do it every 6 months or 5000 miles, regardless, for the first two years. They bill Toyota for that since it falls within the Toyotacare period.

    You may need a different service department.

    I'd really suggest you read your Owners Manual. Per page 456: #1 - check oil level with the engine warm, not cold. #2 - oil level is normal anywhere between the two dots and isn't "low" until near or below the bottom dot.

    We have no point of reference, so really can't say. Was it previously at the full mark and how long ago? Also you checked cold, so if you check it properly, with engine warm, you may be right at the full mark. Either way, it's safe, you're well above the min mark. As far as whether it's using oil or whether there's a problem, not enough data given to determine. With a new vehicle, you should be checking every fill up to trend and monitor for any oil usage. Even just a little bit will likely eventually foul your spark plugs prematurely.

    Does anyone know the part numbers for the wiper blade rubber inserts? I can only find the numbers for the whole assembly.
