    So as the title reads, I'm I'm the market for a replacement radiator. After reading a bunch of threads, it seems that KOYO is hit or miss , let alone I can't seem to find one less than $400. My local Toyota dealer quoted $470 yet I've found an OEM radiator for $325. And it seems the CSF one...

    No vacuum to EGR?

    Went in for smog today. Everything passed but the gas cap, EGR functional test & timing (was at 11). Luckily everything else including the sniffer test passed. They said the EGR has no vacuum. Would this be a result of a bad VSV? Bad EGR? Vacuum modulator? Thanks in advance! P.S. I did...

    VSS/Speed sensor needed to function correctly ?

    My 94 speedo works intermittently otherwise tach works and overall the 80 runs normal. Other day the O/D started flashing so I did the TCM paperclip TT/E1 pull deal and it was code 42 = VSS if im not mistaken. Question: Is it necessary ? Do other things rely on it ? I think someone asked...

    Not registering miles correctly on ODO

    So not to long ago did my lift and of course picked up bigger tires. Went from a 285/75/16 Geolanders to new 315/75/16 Duratracs. Now I know the milage will be off because of the larger tire, BUT I'm barely registering any mileage. Drove about 80 miles round trip to visit my dad and the...

    Shock Boots, yay or nay ?

    The Doetsch shocks I purchased didn't come with, and during the install, didn't think to put any on. Now I'm second guessing it. Is it necessary ? When does it become necessary ? I did a goggle search and found most people said, not a big deal... What are your thoughts ? experience...
