      2001LC replied to the thread 2002 Land Cruiser timing belt.
      You should be fine. If timing belt was to happen to break. 98% change engine (98-05) would be fine. We've seen factory belts go 20yr/250K miles, and still okay. Belt condition depends somewhat, on climate vehicle used in. Some may go even more...

      You could likely have more than one issue. These things, should not be happening in a low mile, rust free rig, no accidents, with factory windshield and drains working (no water entry). It, suggest accident, rodents, water leakage into junction...

      You are so good, at lay this stuff out. KUDOS! I'll add: If replace ECU. Not only look at your's PN. But pull PN by VIN#, see if it sub to a newer PN. Use newest PN if you can. Don't use with PN #, older than what you have now. But again...

      Just to add emphasis to the observations by @2001LC .... If not already done, suggest cruise the thread below from about Post #250 to Post #260. The discussion between @suprarx7nut, @2001LC and @Moridinbg may be helpful. There are a lot of...

      They found the engine fast. So I'm not surprised it's bad. Even if seller covers it. They don't usually cover shipping & labor at most Yards. Typically yards offers replacement only, not cash back. I do remote inspection on 100 & 200 series, and...

      I don’t disagree, but it does make me curious about my 99 LX (very hot under engine braking on the Colorado trails), and/or 06 LX, from “hurricane water crossings”. Maybe an “out of shedule” fluid change is warranted. If/when I extend the...

      I have seen brass bushing paper thin. These are usually ones where contamination has entered. Either form bad or no grease cap and or bad seals (knuckle to FDS). But as brass bushing wears, hub flange gap increases. It is brass bushing we first...

      I agree. That "if" ATF is entering TC via breather line or vise versa. We need separation! We for sure need to look hard at this issue. Seems, excessive foaming would play a roll. But I'd think if ATF in TC gear lube. That the mixing and heating...

      It's possible the AHC ECU bad, but not very likely. If you do try a used ECU. Be aware factory did change PN#'s. There is 2 possibly 3 PN #'s. I suspect the change was do to issue, in older model ECU like you have. Was issue a fault or just to...

      A word about snap rings. Toyota has six snap rings, that come various thicknesses. They're in graduation of 0.2mm. From 1.8mm to 2.8mm. The FSM directs us to increase thickness, if gap is .2mm or greater. So in some cases, we end up with a very...

      From what I gathered, his conclusion was that overheating the transmission fluid, while he was playing on the beaches in Baja California, was what originally caused ATF to be transferred from his transmission to his transfer case, via his...

      Of course could be to thick a snap ring. The factory snap ring is a 2.2mm. 90% of time I need to use a 2.4MM, that's with all new components that would effect gap, installed. 18% of time, I use a 2.6mm. 1% of time a 2.8MM and 1% of time a factory...

      Very likely. Soda bottle, is just a catch for AT return line fluid from PS reservoir, I just flushed. I've the PS reservoir in my sonic cleaner, as I replace the rack & pinion and PS hoses.

      Might be related to whatever is going on with the electrical tape on the MAF electrical connector and the tubing going to the soda bottle?! Looks pretty crappy!

      You're UK, so could be different than we use in USA market. Try your VIN # at Lexus, or if you've LC at Toyota. Or www.partsouq.com They're my go to software for PN#, very accurate and up to date.

      Well that's interesting. Thanks for posting. He said red AT oil, in breather tube. Interesting! I did not get a good look at my fluid on floor, but though it gear lube. I need to go back and look at routing of both transmission & breather tubes...

      Actually, I just went in shop and took those pictures a few minutes ago. I've seen worst! Search mud, some have come-up with cheap creative fixes. For the OEM air boxes & pipe with busted clips/tabs/nipples.

      Why change what has worked very well, for billions of miles "Collectively speaking". Which is the factory design! The exception being a snorkeler. Personally, I do not like seeing any of these after-market cool air system on the 100 series 4.7L...

      If USA LC had VGRS, we could order VGRS rack. We can't unfortunately! LX 03-07 (Black paint) Lexus only parts. LC 03-07 rack green paint Toyota sells. LC/LX 98-02 racks, have blue paint both Toyota & Lexus sell.

      Some non-dealer locksmiths can cut by VIN as well.

      Toyota factory & OEM replacements radiators are Aluminum with plastic top and bottom. We've: Aluminum, case iron, steel, plastic and rubber in the coolant system of the 4.7L 2UZ. Which neither red or pink, will react adversely on.

      You said you checked and cleaned all wire housing block. But did you! Water entry in LH foot well, seems to be the start of issue. So I'd check wire blocks there, which are not water tight wire housing blocks. I'd also look under vehicle rear...

      VGRS equipped LX, have a large boot covering the mechanical unit under the dash. Which all 2003-07 USA models do. Call any Lexus dealer, with VIN #. They can tell you, if the VGRS snap ring recall work has been done. It is very dangerous to...
