Hello, I have a Toyota Tacoma (2x4) truck. Just recently, I noticed that when I'm driving at freeway speeds (over about 50 mph), I can hear a high pitched squeal (whistle?) sound coming from the right rear wheel area. The funny part is that I hear this most when I let up (or take my foot off...

"Full Synthetics" by Rudy Hiebert
It may come as a shock to some but "Full" is not the same as "100%". The brands that have that on the lable want to make you get the impression that it is. It's not illegal because there is no rule that says anything about a minimum amount of synthetics before it's called "Full".

Different types of crankshaft radius - what's the (dis)advantage? by mahi
