How is your exhaust pipe? Is it black and sooty? Can you smell fuel? Is there any color to the exhaust smoke?

comment How can I identify which cylinder is responsible for a petrol engine misfire?
@Paulster2 : Can you explain the possible issues in more depth? I have used the technique I've described to troubleshoot an LS1 motor without problems, but you have more experience than me.

comment How much of a VIN code is needed to identify make & model, across model years?
The VIN format is not standard across different vehicle brands. Every manufacturer has its own way of specifying the VIN. For example, BMW uses the last 7 digits of the VIN to uniquely identify the model, year of manufacture, specs and options

Is this question specifically for Toyotas? If so, I suggest you reflect it in the question title/tags.

@mikes : I like what you've put down so far. Any thoughts on the other grades like Loctite 271, 272?
