    AC switching from circulating to intake

    Actually had this exact issue 2 weeks ago. Every time it switched back and fourth the compressor was actually turning on and off (like every 2 seconds). Was obviously giving me weak AC. Took it to my mechanic. They found a couple of random stored rear AC codes and cleared them. Also swapped the...

    BBR or black brake resevoir

    Is it possible it's oil that has sprayed on it from a leaking hose?

    2000 LX470 issues - weird mechanic diagnosis

    Interesting. Is that the same as what my tech is calling a speed sensor? Are the rears easy to replace? Have a part number by chance? Hm ok I'll double check those. Thanks

    2000 LX470 issues - weird mechanic diagnosis

    Hey guys - sorry for the long read here but I'm a little stumped. I bought my 2000 LX470 about a year ago with 213k on the clock. I'm now at 222k. It's fairly stock other than 33" Cooper ST Maxx and a Trail Tailor rack / Tepui tent. Here's a pic of a recent trip: Maintenance I've done in my...

    Cold start -- Two turns of Ignition key?

    That sounds like a starter to me. My old 4runner had the same symptoms and new starter fixed it.

    Poll on total brake failure in 100 series

    I did not have any brake failure, but i had the awful strangling seagull sound and warning lights / buzzer Bought a brand new MC assembly and had it installed. No problems since. However, every time i get in my car the brake feel is a little different. Some days the pedal is kind of soft and...

    New owner and already screeching Master Cylinder :(

    I actually bit the bullet and replaced the whole MC assembly. Over 1000 miles since and no issues. Even had it parked overnight in 7 degree snow. Sucks but it was worth it for me to know it was good to go for another 200k

    Next step was tires. Those wimpy Michelins weren't going to do me much good. I was going to get the Falkens again, but I decided to get Cooper ST Maxx instead. 285/75/16. Really aggressive tire, but still plenty quiet on the highway. Really impressed with them. Then here it is as it sits...

    Next came the roof rack! I looked at Gamiviti and Baja, but I didn't like the super long lead times. I wanted to get my tent up there ASAP. I did some searching and found Jason reeves at Trail Tailor - @reevesci and COULD NOT BE HAPPIER. Jason's work is incredible, and he even helped me mount...

    Well I certainly went quiet here for a while. Time for an update! The thing that's been consuming most of my time is the brakes. Shortly after buying the car, I got the screeching from the master cylinder, ABS alarm and all that. I started by replacing the Booster and Accumulator, but it did...

    After putting about 100k miles on 2 3rd gen 4runners, I bought an 80 series. Drove it (slowly) for a year and someone offered me an amount I couldn't turn down. Then I Drove the LX470 that I now own. Plenty of power, space, utility, and it keeps my buns warm in the winter. Haven't looked back.

    Brake accumulator pump

    I was getting screeching noises and warning lights. Replaced my pump and accumulator with a brand new unit. Problem came back a week later. Now I just ordered the entire MC assembly and will be selling my one week old new pump accumulator unit if you're interested. Feel free to DM me if you...
