    Re: 2014+ Toyota Tundra 5.7.

    AFM is GM's cylinder deactivation called Active Fuel Management. Still a gimmick with no real savings. But can turn in to a nightmare and consume/burn oil.

    EPS is Electronic Power Steering.

    Re: BX Transmission Filter Change

    Are you guys really that cheap that you can't afford to change a few gallons of oil at 50 hours? Just imagine how broke you'll be when you lose your transmission from lack of maintenance.

    Re: Ford to try their hand at a diesel 1/2 ton?

    As do I! Last trip to my dealer for an oil filter I noticed quite a few work truck SL spec Sierras on the lot. Not as many loaded ones as in the past. My SL has got everything that I need.

    But only an oil analysis will tell you the real story. MSDS does not list that. Its like saying Chinamart Super Tech is as good as T6 - it's not.
