      The shop installed the new fan clutch along with the compressor about two weeks ago. I could check it but I still don't think that's my problem. I hope to have time to dig into it in a week or two. A good wiring diagram of the A/C components...

      Update: I had purchased an extra A/C compressor and fan clutch from my local dealer a while back thinking I would replace them someday but since I had them on the shelf anyway and my A/C system was having problems I decided to have my local inde...

      Well it took a few weeks but I finally reproduced the problem. I parked the truck outside last night and left it until late on a hot (85 *F) afternoon. It was hot inside when I started it. The AC never really got going and I had to roll the...

      Update: I borrowed a bluetooth scanner to sync with my iPhone and have been driving around monitoring the engine temp through the device. I am making the assumption that the reported temp is accurate but I have no reason to suspect otherwise...

      Coolant was just replaced with the Toyota red stuff this spring as part of routine maintenance. I don't know of any coolant leaks in the system. All the coolant components could still be original but they all look to be in good shape. Since...

      I recently had the A/C compressor replaced on my wife's 1996 and the A/C blows cold all the time. Very happy with it. On my 1995 however, the A/C works almost as well but every once in a while it completely stops working. I've been paying...

      It does pay to work with a good inde shop. Almost 30 years ago when I first got my 40, this same shop rebuilt the carb for me and did a great job. Their LandCruiser tech retired some years after that and they couldn't service the old 40 through...

      Yes, it is a US spec 1980 with the 2F still in stock form (CA smog test still required) and running strong. Trailers are usually in the 1000-3000 lbs range towing anything from supplies to aggregate, fill sand, soil, garbage etc. On site...

      I know I have a few leaks in the braking system and haven't paid much attention to anything brake wise in a very long time. I was thinking of going through the system and checking for leaks, rust, worn parts etc. My brakes are completely...

      Update: So the shop had it for a few days to investigate. They confirmed the new compressor was seized and found no debris in the system as far as they could tell. They worked directly with Toyota to replace it. They performed the full...

      I should have added that detail. The clutch was making a bad noise when cold that would eventually go away when when it warmed up. The shop recommended replacing the compressor at the same time because of the mileage (250K) plus the fact it was...

      Good questions. I just dropped off the box I got from dealer at the shop. Never opened it to see if there were any instructions. I guess I am going to learn a lesson now. Is it possible all the 134A and oil leaked out and caused it to...

      I should have mentioned that the instrument cluster was not working after this. I checked the fuses and found the 10 amp fuse blown. Replaced the fuse and the instruments are working again. I checked the two 30A fuses which I thought were for...

      I had the old A/C compressor and clutch pulley replaced with new Toyota parts a few weeks ago and today driving on the street, I heard a noise and then saw more and more smoke coming out from under the hood. I pulled over and found the A/C...
