    Welcome! I'd like to know what motor oil you have used in your truck
    and how often you change it. We have had alot of discussion on this.

    I surely hope you don't mean *ORIGINAL thermostat & Water pump* - cuz if you still have the original water pump & thermostat, then you're vehicle is being cooled by an *ACT of GOD* :D

    Sweet, got another 1st gen. around. By the way everything was stock on mine till this year with 200,000+ now. Last Thursday I finally had to replace the clutch, thought a clutch spring broke, come to find out it was the clutch fork pivot bolt broke. Still had a little clutch left on it, but anyway it has all been replaced new and shifts like a dream now.

    Let me answer some quests. YES all original the man upstairs does have his eye on me YES I need to go through and replace several maintence items Including pump stat and coolent and plan to do so. The oil I use is Castrol GTX 5w30 anti sludging formula BUT in the summer months I add 1 QT of Lucus additive My oil has been changed RELIGOUSLY 3000 to 5000 miles by me since 50,000 The sets of tires is kinda hard to answer because I've had a lot of used tires The frame on my Taco is in excelent condish the only rust is on the rear quarter directaly above the rear tires.This truck has been washed byweekly as long as I've owned it since 98 and yes I do bend over to wash the undercarrige THANKS FOR THE QUESTIONS anymore feel free C-YA
