    That's the ones! But mine are yellow handle knockoff Kleins. Guess I should call them "pump pliers" instead of channel locks.

    Got my oil changed today and learned that I had coolant leaking into my oil. So that should be a fun journey.

    Dam man, hopefully its something non fatal. But it was a good catch

    Worst come to worst engine rebuild with 11.0:1 CR pistons and upgraded connecting rods.

    It wasn't there (or at least it wasn't brought to my attention) at my last oil change in September, so its probably a new problem. Its been driving just fine. I'll look into getting it fixed next month sometime.

    Next time, unzip, remove 14mm bolt. Separate fabric from foam and throw in washing machine. Air dry and reassembly. Time is money.

    We do this with any fabric upholstered furniture in the house also, on any seat cushions that're upholstered with zippers. Kid spilled something on it? Unzip all of them, into the wash on gentle, which is usually enough to get the fresh stain out without making things look more worn than the rest of the piece.

    Oh man a washing machine wasnt getting that shit out. I honestly thought it was far on the arm rest at first. It was a hardcore elbow grease job.

    But noted for next time, thank you

    Shit, dude. Did they say it was frothy or did you get to see it? Not questioning the findings, just curious.

    They didn't mention frothy. They showed me the residue on the fill cap.

    Oh. You don't have water in your oil. That's a symptom of short trip driving, and steam building up in the valve cover. Totally normal.

    Get a new oil change shop if someone else raised this with you.

    That's reassuring. I am a short trip driver. Excluding a long road trip once a year, I drive about 30-40 miles a week. I know that's not healthy, but I can't help it if I live two miles from work.

    So your saying its nothing I should be overly concerned about?

    I just updated my reply with a Toyota Maintenance video. Give it a whirl. Nothing to be hyperconcerned about. You DO NOT have coolant in your oil.

    The pad on the right isn't properly seated on the rotor, note the two spots with overhang? Super weird. But yeah, those have plenty of life left.

    I call bullshit on that report. Someone probably saw the filler cap and was interested in scaring your into some money. Any chance you may change your own oil next time so you can assess directly?

    Also, with short trip driving, you need to be changing based on months, not miles. Are you doing that?

    Highly doubtful I'll change it myself. I usually go about six or seven months between changes. This time was exactly eight months. How many months would you recommend?

    Possibly, who knows with the owners 4 and 5. They "just good enoughed" so much shit on this thing I have projects for months. Like there's an 05 06 front end on this truck with 00 head lights and fenders..... So when i go to get it repainted i get to buy all the correct trim pieces and sub structor shit. Also explains why I cant propelyr mount the blinker housings to the head lamps.....
