    Need Part Number for Heater Hose T's

    For my 2007 Land Cruiser 100, 215K miles. In a thread here I was advised to avoid breakdown to replace my two heater hose T's. I bought two heater hose T's - Toyota description "PIPE, WATER" from TWO different dealers. They both sent me part number 87248-60460. Both T's are way too small. I...

    Hose and Belt Replacement

    My 2004 with 225K miles has the original hoses and belts save for the timing belt done at 95K. I am off on a 4K mile trip and so considered it time to change all hoses and belts out but on inspection they all look so good. Really don't have time for too much prophylactic work so is it prudent...

    Maybe an ABS/Brake Powers Assist issue?

    2004 with 225K miles. INTERMITTENT (meaning 50% of the time symptoms not evident) pedal and steering wheel vibration, biting on braking. Usually gentle breaking like as using brakes to slow when going down grade. Feels the same as warped rotors but all rotors and pads and calipers are new...

    Front Drive Boot Minor Grease Leaks OK?

    After 200,000 miles in the 2004 100-series the front drive boots show some grease leaks as shown in picture. Condition is very stable with no visible increased leaking and it looks normal to me but just checking. Now where is that grease coming from? IE how does it get replaced as I didn't see...

    After Wipe-Out on Lippincott Building NEW Jeep Trailer

    Last month I trashed my rather flimsy trailer on the infamous Lippincott Mine Road so I'm building a more sturdy replacement. For $30, I got an old trailer with rotten bodywork and bad wheel bearings and rotten tires and a 2 5/15th inch ball tow bar rated 60,000LB! The tow bar weighed more than...

    Shudder on Steering Wheel and Foot Pedal When Braking - Not What You Think

    My truck (2007 with 200K miles) has always had a bit of this - shudder on steering wheel and brake pedal when braking. Normal cause of this is warped rotors or other brake issues, so I had complete new brakes all around. New rotors, calipers and pads. And new rear shocks. Seemed to be OK for a...

    I got confused between MAF sensor and the box adjacent to the butterfly

    So now I've found the MAF and I'm guessing what I was looking at was the throttle position sensor? Do I need remove that to clean it and behind the butterfly? I cleaned butterfly from front.

    Today putting in new plus noticed throttle butterfly dirty at edges. See picture. Is tis normal (200K miles and ever cleaned) or does it indicate I need a full throttle body clean?

    What Next? (after my 100 that is)

    So, I have a '97 80 with 250K miles and by far the best truck I ever had. My 100 has just turned over 200K miles and unlike the 80 that I serviced very 6 months the 100 has had nothing done save a set of plugs, a timing belt and shocks, and I see problems coming. I have not been reading on the...

    Tire Disaster and Catch 22 at Costco

    For my last set of tires I went to Costco. I let them recommend the tires, I just said I wanted for off-road with tough sidewall. They put on four Michelin Latitudes. These tires proved to be terrible off-road and wore fast. But Costco has paid the price for their choice because up till last...

    Wiring up a 2004 M105A2 military trailer to my LC. My 2004 Land Cruiser has the towing package with the 7-pin out receptacle. I have replaced the trailers 24v bulbs with 12v ones. I have removed the 12-pin NATO plug from the trailer and connected the relevant 4 trailers wires to a 7-pin plug...

    My '97 Back on Road After 3 years as a Chicken Coop

    Really getting bored with the 100 (300k miles now) and I was missing my '97 80 that had been abandoned at the bottom of the field with doors and windows open for use as home for all manner of creatures. Cats escape from coyotes in it, chickens laid eggs in it and several generation of mice have...

    Removing Brakes from Military Trailers to Reduce Weight?

    I have just got a heavy duty military trailer, the M105A2 and unladen weight is a hefty 2700 lbs. Someone said somewhere to reduce weight by removing the surge braking system. The surge brakes are useful I feel on steep decents so is there any merit to the suggestion?

    Inspecting Timing Belt

    My timing belt was changed at 90K miles but now I am 185K so 95K on. I need take children on a 3,000 mile journey and I need decide if this is risky or should I change belt again. I know following the belt changing FAQ how to get to the part where the left cover is removed, but I want to know if...

    "the external source is not connected"

    This is the message I get when I hit DISC to play a cd from the CD changer. 2003 with Nav system. Up until now it has always played CDs with no problems. Looks like something may have come unconnected but all wireing is out of sight. The 6 CD cassette holder operates OK - that is I can remove...
