      Yeah, I think this was a common issue from day one on these transmissions. Waiting a little extra after shifting to reverse (to let pressure build or something?) seems to help quite a bit. If you are really having problems, shifting to 4lo is...

      Also, do you find rarely happens in 4lo? My experience is if I let it shift completely and then don’t mash it I’m usually ok and that it rarely happens in 4lo, but I will be watching to see what results you get

      Your willingness to learn will go a long way. You mention that you aren't familiar with rust repair, but are you familiar with working on vehicles in general? Do you have a garage where you can work on the truck for extended periods? Do you have...

      I hate to hear this and worry about something similar happening to me with the way the values of 80s have sky rocketed. I recently had my catalytic converter stolen at the airport in Portland, OR. Super aggravating. I always garage mine at home...

      aclos3 replied to the thread brake caliper recommendations.
      Several years ago I went with Napa Eclipse and they have been great. It seems like there have been a lot of reports of a decline in quality though starting in 2019 or so. I am not sure how they still stack up, but I did pick up all four new OEM...

      That is the the that got me. 20 year old hoses at the time and that throttle body bypass hose failed first and a lot worse than the PHH.

      From your description, it sounds like you caught it in time and I doubt you have done head, block or HG damage, but you should express your concern to your LC mechanic and see what he thinks. I had a similar failure of both the bypass (head to...

      I would have the cruise control cancel about 75% of the time when I'd use my blinker... annoying when changing lanes on the freeway. Installing resistors at the rear brake light helped. I can't remember the specs of the resistors, but it can be...

      In my LX450, I have replaced all four door speakers and the factory subwoofer with a Tang brand (from ebay in 2011) that sounds a lot better, but still doesn't make a ton of sound being only 4". Recently, I installed a 6" bazooka tube in the...

      From your first photo, it looks like one of your ground wires might be damaged right at the terminal. Also, my knowledge is more specific to OBD II trucks, but I think the lack of CEL with the key in that position indicates a problem. Usually...

      A lot of people are not willing to pay the exorbitant prices though. Many vehicles hit the scrapyard well before they need to because they become economically infeasible to repair.

      Are you confident that you have a good, charged battery? If so, does the check engine light come on when the key is in the ignition and turned on, but not in the starting position? Check or replace your fusible links as well. This is a three wire...
