Put the winter set on today (square 245/45-19 setup with Michelin Pilot Alpin 5 tires on 9" FP Boss 302 wheels) and tucked the PSP4s set off to the side of the shed. Took it for a run around the block to pair the TPMS sensors, swapped in the winter mats, and all looks good. Second year on...
Having driven many miles on both A/S3+ and PS4s tires, I can say that I would never want to have the car come with A/S3+ standard. The A/S3+ are nice tires and all, with the benefit that the A/S3+ are OK at cold temperatures, but the handling difference to the PS4s is a massive loss in the...
I had both A/S3+ and DWS06 tires on my BMWs. Both were fine for dry and wet driving. Both were OK on light (1/2") snow. The DWS were horrible in the one ice storm when I got caught out without the snow tires I ran 4 months of the year.
After all of it, I preferred the A/S3+ to the DWS06...
I bought my 2005 Tacoma 4 years ago and use it for all the things above as well as my daily driver. Don't care where I park it, don't care about the weather, 4x4 + Blizzaks is unstoppable, and it hauls everything. 75,000 miles since I bought it (it's nearly at 245,000 now) and chugging...
I haven't read through all of the above, but have you spoken to the loan officer at the BoA branch where you're planning to do this? It's likely not his first rodeo and they likely have a process.
On a side note, must be nice to live in a state where they'll issue temporary tags.
Confirm or set parking brake.
Clutch and brake.
Shift to neutral.
Press Start button.
Learned it that way on my '70 Mach 1 (which would fire up whenever you turned the key, regardless of clutch/brake/gear positions) and never saw a reason to change in the past 42 years.
Your history is pretty similar to my wife's. She had the full knee replacement last year after putting it off for ages. While she says that kneeling on it is really disquieting (not painful, just weird), everything else is so much better that she wishes she hadn't put it off for so long.
Per a Flat Rock worker over at the Blue Oval forums, It's not a full power pull. It's a run of the engine and transmission at a mid-range level and through the gears to make sure there's nothing grossly wrong. The engine isn't warmed up first and the dynamometer does not fully load the system.
I believe he means that it isn't "flush" with the surrounding area. My 2019 badge isn't flat and is instead a pyramidical rectangle. In addition, it's set into a pocket in the dash, instead of being mounted on a flat surface. It doesn't look like it would be an easy pull for the usual "heat...
Add enough StaBil for +/- 15 gallons using the funnel in the trunk, then fill the tank with whatever you usually use. Don't sweat the ethanol if you have a full tank. It may be hygroscopic, but you won't have enough air exchange to make a difference.
Which is why the GT350 gauges are so nice.
FWIW, last night leaving the office, I was watching both the cylinder head temperature and the oil temperature. The cylinder head was at about 145F before the oil temperature started to move off the 100F minimum peg.
I will say that the 42 minute pre-shipping dyno test would seem to argue against the traditional "take it easy for the first 1000 miles" advice, unless a good portion of that time is at lower RPM...
