Who knows, its an old RAV4. Once she's done with school in May I'm putting the heap up for sale. Need to figure out what to buy next but will do that once we move.

Let me know if you wanna come.
Hey Brian I might come out there and bring a friend. Let me know if that is okay.

Yea man that's cool. If you don't want to drive you can ride with me so you don't have to risk further screwing up your clutch.

BENZin...are you sure 5w40 is good for the 7? I read the bottle of the Castrol GTX SYNTEC. It said BMW Longlife 98, Specifically made for BMW, Benz, (Volkswagen mainly). I just don't wanna go buy this stuff and it starts a problem from being too thick or too thin.

If your valves are making noises at you when the engine is warm but not cold (the opposite of the normal case), the first thing to try is going from a 5w-30 to a 5w-40. If you look, the 5w-30 royal purple is quite thick when cold (thicker than other 5w oils), which I think might be why you only get the valve ticking when warm. Another reason to shy away from 5w-30 is any oil that is SM (the latest API rating) and 5w-30 is a good for the environment, bad for your car, oil (though they are changes which many say don't matter for cars with roller cams)

Check the manual, but IIRC the 1998 manual for a 540 said 5w-40. The Amsoil 5w-40 is BMW LL04.

I'll be at the Feb meet... I would love to get in a small photo session soon if anyone is having one (even though my car is stock).
