    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

    Thanks guys!!! Living in Canada has its advantages. We can import when they are 15 years old. If I could afford a 100 series diesel I might go that way, unfortunately they are still selling for too much in Japan and out of my budget range.

    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...

    Black Wheels / While LC100

    If you just want to try it out, pick up a product called plasti dip in aerosol form. It's a rubberized spray paint. Clean your wheels, spray it on. And if you don't like it it peels right off. Lots of you tubes about it... I did mine with that method two years ago and they still look great...

    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...

    The official 1HDT Intercooler thread

    So I have a dumb question. What is wrong with the cheap intercoolers and "universal" pipe kits on eBay? There are all sorts of IC's under $200 and pipe kits around $100. Please excuse my ignorance, but I don't understand why they vary so greatly in price. Most guys here seem to be paying...

    1997 HDJ81 with a 1HD-FTE???

    Didn't the 100 series have the FTE right from its inception in Japan in 98? I know in Australia it didn't get the FTE until 2000.

    Things that go Bump

    They can and will write it off so it can't be fixed. Happened to me. I did manage to get mine back, it had really low miles so I got 16 for it, and just for kicks had an auto body shop look at it, about 6k to repair. Total scam by the insurance company. I fought for a year to get it...

    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

    Warning Light Issues

    Did you do the rebuild or pay to have it done? I have seen a couple of paid for "rebuild" jobs that were very poorly done. It may need more than just brushes, the armature may also need replacing. And they may not have replaced the regulator, which may result in you getting AC current out of...

    Batteries? Alternator?? Or something else???

    Sorry I didn't see this sooner. Had exactly the same issue in my 92 HDJ81. If you want to save some cash it is the same alt as a mid 90s tercel. Won't have the same output as that 150 amp, but its cheap and worked for the 3 years I had the truck...

    AltFuel  Anyone running a diesel with cng? Or know something about it

    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...

    AltFuel Volume of CNG.. Check my math please

    There are home fueling stations out there, but they are pricey at the moment. They take 6 hours or so (overnight) to fill your tank... There are CNG filling stations that are taxed though.... Hard to prove which you would have in the tank. I was wondering about the lubricant side of things...
