    Commuting with 300k+ 1993 cruiser or letting it sit?

    For anyone interested, I decided I'll leave it with a relative. I can make it up there every two or at most three weeks to drive it and now that things are cooling down in the desert it is weekend trip season down here! I'll also probably swap it for the Civic every few weeks so I can keep it in...

    Commuting with 300k+ 1993 cruiser or letting it sit?

    Don't like sand and desert? No interest in wheeling?? Scratching my head over that one... My friend if you ever get a chance check out sandstone canyon and diablo drop-off in Anza Borrego, only 2.5 hours from LA, easy weekend trip. It just might change your mind. I agree that west coast is the...

    Commuting with 300k+ 1993 cruiser or letting it sit?

    I agree. As much as I miss having space and I hate trying to fit the cruiser into tight parallel parking spots all over the city and I hate encountering traffic at every time of day...yeah in spite of all that I love West LA. Santa Monica to South Bay is the exact right spot to be. You might...

    Commuting with 300k+ 1993 cruiser or letting it sit?

    Yeah I moved from Seattle to LA a few years ago. Not a very land cruiser friendly place, and I've gotten the street sweeping ticket a couple of times now :bang: Family is up in Ventura though. A bit far like I said but lots more space out there, nice and safe, big driveway for when I need to...

    Commuting with 300k+ 1993 cruiser or letting it sit?

    Lots of good opinions in here. I think I'll leave it at a relative's house and switch cars every couple of weeks. For anyone familiar with the area, I'm relocating from Westchester to the Palms area. Distance wise not a huge move but I'll be leaving a nice residential street with ample street...

    Commuting with 300k+ 1993 cruiser or letting it sit?

    Was thinking about the street parking option but its a fairly crowded part of LA and street parking is hard to come by or nonexistent. Lots of 2 hour parking only and the like. Unfortunately won't have a garage to keep it in but a cover is not a bad idea. This is Southern California too so it is...

    Commuting with 300k+ 1993 cruiser or letting it sit?

    Wanted to get some opinions about what I should do in my current situation. I have a 1993 cruiser with 312k miles on it. I'm moving this weekend to an apartment building where I can only have 1 car. For the past 8 months or so I've had the cruiser and a 2004 Honda Civic which I use to commute to...

    How to install/torque knuckle and drive flange studs

    Thank you @ppc ! It's from the old one. I remember it popping off when I was trying to pull the old seal out but I thought I was careful to throw it in the trash pile. Must have left it laying around! Anyways that makes me feel better. So studs are all I have to worry about...

    How to install/torque knuckle and drive flange studs

    Thanks for the tips. I'm gonna go ahead and try and torque the knuckle studs this weekend. Just to clarify, its the bolts on the drive flange studs, not the knuckle studs, that spin and spin without tightening. I don't have any reason to suspect that the knuckle threads are stripped but I might...

    How to install/torque knuckle and drive flange studs

    Did a passenger side knuckle rebuild on by 93 cruiser yesterday. As I was taking the bolts off the knuckle studs, one of the studs came out completely when I tried to take off the bolt and I could tell that two of the others were loose. I gave them all a good tighten with some vise grips but my...

    Baffling Sequence of CEL on 1993 Cruiser

    Thanks for the tips. Did not know resetting the ECU could make a difference--I thought the codes would always clear manually and would not be recurring. At any rate, I just cleared them by resetting the ECU as you described. I have already sprayed the 02 sensor connectors with compressed air and...

    Baffling Sequence of CEL on 1993 Cruiser

    Hi all. I'm stumped by the check engine lights I have gotten so far in 2020. Maybe I'm just really unlucky, but I might be missing something and I'm hoping one of the great Mud folks far cleverer than I can point it out to me. I'll try to make this brief. I have a 1993 Cruiser with 311k on it...

    Transfer case leaking lots of oil on 93

    Hey all, Was hoping one of the great mud folks could give me some advice. I was driving my 93 cruiser today when it started making some terrible vibrations while accelerating. I checked out this thread Drive Shaft PM and Drive Train Troubleshooting- For FAQ and got under the car. There is oil...

    93 rough idle and code 26 after water crossing

    Hey thanks your all your help! We fixed a slightly cracked air intake hose, undid most electrical connections and sprayed with compressed air then applied dielectric grease to all connectors, pulled the spark plugs out and cranked the engine (though no water came out) then replaced with new...

    93 rough idle and code 26 after water crossing

    Hey everyone. Got a pesky issue going on that I'm hoping someone has an idea about. Two days ago I took my 93 cruiser through a water crossing that turned out to be deeper than I expected. Water was almost up to the engine latch. drove out of it fine and without issue. I stopped to inspect the...
