I have a 2005 toyota tundra automatic with 4.7 v8 engine. It has about 60k original miles. I was going to change the oil. I am running mobil 1 5w30. When I replaced the filter, the old gasket stuck to the engine. I drove down the road about one half mile before I pulled over and added oil since most of mine had leaked out. The temp gauge was normall. It was conventional oil that a buddy had brought. IIt was making some noise like a tapping. Also, at higher rpm, makes rattling noise. I don't know what this is. I only drove about 5 miles with it like that. I then flushed the engine using that 5 minute engine flush from NAPA. Drained completely and installed new filter and 6 quarts of MOBIL 1 5w30.
So, everything is back to normal except my new noise.
I don't think this noise was there before but I could be wrong.
The light came on stating I need to take it to dealer.
I was mainly wondering if I did any major damage to the engine or what the noises may be.
Thanks for the help. Bill
have the same problem?
