    High Mileage FJ Cruisers

    Engine all in all was in decent shape, no bearing knock, no piston slap and no blue out the tail pipe. Even the original timing chain.

    High Mileage FJ Cruisers

    Well, we finally bit the bullet and traded in the old truck. It was still running decent but a number of smaller items we're starting to add up. With the amount of driving we do, we decided it was time....... The ODO when I dropped her off at the dealer: We had it since new, 670,000km and...

    Hit this a few weeks ago, just haven't had a moment to post. This also puts us well into the 400,000 mile club.

    Engine flush. Yay or nay?

    Keep on top of your oil changes, use a good quality oil and filter and a flush is not needed. 100,000km is barely even broken in for these engines (assuming it's been well maintained)

    Wow, looks great, the lights on our truck need to be done sooner than later, reading this write-up might just motivate me to grab a kit! Great write-up as always @BMThiker, thanks!

    Transmission, A750 issues

    Well she does have over 600,000 km on her, we don't expect perfection at this point lol. The shudder is pretty minimal and to be honest has been a slight on and off again thing almost since day one. It did reduce though with this last drain / fill and since a pan drain only changes out a small...

    Transmission, A750 issues

    Drained and filled the pan oil, made a difference, some shudder still exists but this certainly improved it. I'll do another drain and fill again soon....... The tranny already has an oil cooler installed, thanks! Acquired a throttle body from a scrapped truck that I will keep on hand as a spare...

    Transmission, A750 issues

    Yeah, I need to drain and fill the tranny before I do anything.....the weather is supposed to warm a bit this weekend up here so perhaps I'll finally get to it. With the amount of km on the truck I tend to start wondering about everything being suspect..... The PS Pump whine I mentioned turned...

    Transmission, A750 issues

    Hey @BMThiker thanks for the update...interesting idea about the TPS........ I have yet to drain and fill our fluid, the symptoms on ours haven't changed any. Power steering pump just started whining now so that's now first on the hit list. Take care

    Hey! Wow, some great information, very much appreciated. I hope to do a drain and fill today, we'll see how that affects things and then go from there. I'd like to buy a bit of time and get to spring before we go digging in deeper. Thanks again for this thread and for sharing your knowledge.

    Transmission, A750 issues

    Hey @BMThiker, I certainly appreciate this thread.... Our tranny has occasionally done this gear hunting almost since day one. Our issue was always when shifting from 1->2 and very occasionally from 2->3. And, as you mentioned, only during light throttle feathering, if I step on it a bit there's...

    Sorry, we've been off the board for a bit, no reason other than life is what life is..... Nice work to everyone who posted ODO shots above! Here's one from our end, a little overdue posting but better late than never. 600,000km (372822.715 miles).......fingers crossed:

    High Mileage FJ Cruisers

    Rolled over 575,000km (357288 miles) yesterday. Had to put a new section of exhaust (from y-pipe back and weld repair a section just before the y) and a few other odds and ends recently so that cost some money but still cheaper then a new truck. Going to change all the drive line fluids soon...
