It already ran well, 2000 Tundra with only 45k miles. But yesterday I changed the oil, cleaned/recharged the K&N air filter, and had the tires rotated/balanced. Ya really *can* feel the difference with all that, ya really can. I love that truck. I really do.

Get a lube job and it may tighten up a bit more.

Yay for a positive story!

Change the plugs and you'll be even more amazed ;)

If they have basic copper ones in there...you're probably over due anyway.

This! Spark plugs go bad very slowly and you dont notice.

Plugs should be OK@45K.

Recommend stopping at your local parts store and buy a bottle of Techron and ad it to your next fillup. Really cleans out the fuel system.

Depends on the motor and plugs. The 05+ V6 tacos need then changed @36,000 mile.

Don't believe there are any "lube joints" on this truck. You should be lubing the door hinges and such every oil change. After almost 10 years you should replace all the fluids such as in the Xfer case and axles. A trans fluid change wouldn't be a bad idea either.

I go with full synthetic 80/90 in the axles and syn ATF in the X fer case the first time I change it.

how bout the belts? pcv valve when you did the oil change? flush the radiator?
