    Control Arm Removal and Castor Cor. Bushing Install

    Best Radiator for 3FE?

    Couldn't really find many options these days. I bought an Imperial radiator off amazon for $128 delivered. Its really a silla and will probably start leaking soon. The original finally started leaking, 380,000 miles and 23 years old, it will be missed.

    Hard to start, runs ok warm, dies when hot

    Finally I've seen it again. My 4-runner had the same problem, except it would just kill here and there and wouldnt restart till later. Hooked a test light to fuel pump and saw it was being shut off, knew it was the computer shutting down the pump, replaced water temp sensor and shot in the dark...

    Odd issue with my 91 3fe!! HELP!!!

    Leaky injectors can cause bad mileage, gas smell, and long start ups. After you turn engine off, they slowly leak, dripping gas into intake and you can smell it. No pressure in fuel rail on start ups and cold start injector doesn't shoot it like its supposed to. Bad milage cause they never...

    thermostat temp

    Muratic acid cleans the heater cores out real nice, did mine like ten years ago. You can also back flush the heater cores all by themselves by disconnecting the inlet and outlet hoses.

    Drive train whine

    Found the pic but can't give you the link. Search worn drive flange=birf soup. The pic is in that. The old flange was rounded at every corner. Since the fix, no birf soup and I'm at 348 now.

    Drive train whine

    It only made the noise when I was on the pedal. At first I only noticed it at about 50, but even at 20 it was there, just not as loud. I rebuilt the front, checked the bearings both sides like 8 Times. Think I even took pics of the worn flange as compared to the new one and posted them here...

    Drive train whine

    I had hella noise like this. After much work and numerous tear downs, found out it was the drive flanges. Old, many miles on them, howled. Exact same symptoms. Drive flanges
