      if the old sensors are still working they should be able to program the new sensors with the old ids so you wount have to program the sensors to the car

      they will fit. toyota has 2 different tpms types, one for aluminum rims and one for steel wheels the only difference is the stem angle. battery life on the sensors are usually between 8-10 years so it may be worth while to go with new

      getting parts may start to become a problem for that if it hasnt already, we had a cust with a similar year continental (still a ford product) and even basic suspension parts were discontinued. sticking to the ford line i would look at the...

      i wonder of you could use the height sensors off of an air bagged gx or 4runner equivalent in europe. might be easier to source then getting something from the us

      ive done that and won by not having to do the job, other times ive won and had to do the job and hated it the whole time.

      ya probably not, i would think that would be an all day project at best. ive had to replace smaller engine harnesses and its taken me all day because of what has to come off the engine in order to get access to connectors or mounting brackets for...

      ive never seen failure due to lack of fluid changes, and that goes for cars not just trucks. ive seen trans fluid turn green due to age and wear and the trans still kept working, not saying that you should do that. personally ive never liked...

      i would not go to that dealership then, all of those fliuds are serviceable and should be changed. pink coolant is 100k on first service 60k after that, break as needed or every few years regardless of miles, i personally recommended diff/t-case...

      bigredmachine replied to the thread Plug-Coil-MPG Conundrum.
      thats not really going to help much, its normal for the gap to open up as the plug wares. you would want to use a gap gauge on the new ones, they should come pre gapped so they should be good to go.

      if your removing the front trans in neutral and parking brake on. if your removing the rear trans in neutral and chalk the rear wheels, regardless if its the front or rear your going to have to rotate the shaft to access all if the bolts. and...

      youll be fine, take care of it when you get back home. if the wheel bearing was at the point of coming apart you would have to ignore some very obvious noises and issues

      unless theres physical damage such as chunks missing or serious gouges in it i would have no problem running them. their are big and heavy so its not surprising that they blew out the box, the box can only do so much against 40 lb of rotors

      bigredmachine replied to the thread 3.4 timing belt kit source.
      they dont sell oem in that there will not be any markings from toyota on it and the part number will not match the corresponding toyota number, but they do have items from oe suppliers. ive bought plenty of parts through them and havent had an...

      i would go with the aisin kit off of rockauto, their the oe supplier for toyota. theres also a skf kit that has the seals, they are solid aftermarket supplier

      find where the exhaust leak/s are at and if they are before the o2 sensors then it will affect the fuel trim.
    • bigredmachine
      for that no, it looks like its mainly surface rust. the scaler will be better with heavy rust getting that top layer off and you would still need to use a wire wheel or something like that if you wanted to bring it down to bare metal to prime...

      loads of degreaser. wash rinse repeat

      bigredmachine replied to the thread Excessive rotational play?.
      check your trans mount as that can also contribute to a significant clunk
    • bigredmachine
      no, just wont last as long. the pipe is lower quality as is the cat, its cheaper to buy it but youll be replacing it every few years when it rusts out or starts throwing a cat code

      the egr plug if i remember correctly is a fairly common toyota plug, it should be the same as the injectors on most toyotas and is usually the same plug for the purge valve on most toyotas. they may be different case color depending on where you...

      that was the point with all of the kits, it was supposed to be an off the shelf kit that could be installed at home and brought to or lightly driven to the dealer for the reflash. the supercharger is going to be fairly heavy and very awkward to...
