    Gen 4 4Runner Newbi question

    Hey guys, new to 4runners, but not Toyotas. Have owned several Land Cruisers and a couple cars over the years. I picked up an 03 sport, 6cyl, 4x4. And I can't figure out how to shut off the traction control. There is a light on the dash when I start it "DSC OFF", but there is no button that I...

    1HD-FTE question

    Hey Guys, I have owned a couple 1HD-T in early 90's HDJ81's. Now looking into a late 90's 101 with the FTE. Does the FTE have the same issue with the BEB's that the T did? Are there any other problems to be aware of? Any and all advice is welcome and appreciated. Thanks James

    Brain fart question regarding 81 series

    hey guys, I have owned 3 81 series diesels (5-10 years ago) and am now in the market for another one. I want a 96-97 with the 1HD-T. I am finding those years with two different designations HDJ81 and HZJ81. I believe all of mine (one 1990 and two 91's) were all HDJs. What is an HZJ? I just...

    Decisions, decisions gas vs diesel

    Ok I need help. I have owned 2 HDJ81's with the 1HD-T diesel motor and loved them. I now want to get back into a land cruiser and want a 100 series. My problem is the diesel HDJ101 is about $7 to $10k more expensive than the gas. I just don't think I can justify that, but I know ZERO about...

    1997 HDJ81 with a 1HD-FTE???

    Hey guys, please correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't some 97's come with the FTE? If so how do you tell? I see some have the newer interior like the 100's but not all, is that the give away? (No "oh-s**t" handle on the dash in front of the passenger) Thanks James

    I am really interested in adding a cng system to an HDJ81 with a 1HD-FTE motor. However I am having a really hard time finding any info on this stuff for this application. There is boatloads of info out there for newer cars and trucks, but very little for older non computerized diesels. Just...

    Bringing in a 100 from Japan

    Hey guys, I am looking at bringing in a 100 series from Japan to Canada. I have owned a couple of JDM 80's but know nothing about the 100's, so I don't know what to look for or what questions to ask. It will be a diesel, the 1HDT-FTE I believe. It will be a daily driver and see limited...

    Fuel Question....

    Hey guys, I herd something interesting the other day and wanted some other opinions.... The thought is that the diesel being sold now has so many detergents in it that no longer a good lubricant for your pump. So this guy runs a half liter of 2 stroke oil in every 5th or 6th tank. He has...

    Hey Guys, Truck is an HDJ81 (JDM). This morning I got in and the speedometer isn't working. It will sometimes flutter a bit under acceleration, but for the most part sits on zero. I'm guessing it's just a bad connection but befor I dive in too deep I thought I would get some thougths here...
