    Check Engine Code 21

    I was pushing my '91 TLC pretty hard yesterday. Lots of long hot miles in the mountains. At the very end of the day the CEL light came on. I was near home so after checking all the fluid levels I drove the rest of the way with no probs. Truck seemed just fine. After the engine had a chance to...

    Camping Build Out

    I have read many awesome threads about custom TLC camping build outs in here!! I'm gonna do one w the sleeper folding over the 2nd row seats. I am very tempted to do one myself. Then again, I am very tempted to pay nearby 'Torfab' just to deck it out for me. Check out this recent build out...

    Running hot?

    After buying a LC I have long desired ('91 FJ80) a few weeks back and getting most of the baseline basics checked off, I finally got it out for good trek. Nothing hard core. Just a few nights of camping. What a great camping rig!! With the seats pulled it has massive cargo space. I do have 2...

    FJ80 Exhaust system

    Almost done w FJ80 baseline. Biggest concern left on my list... the exhaust system. It is very rusty. The hanger behind the cats is basically rusted away. I'm just going to use some metal hose clamps to hold it together for now. But anyway... Assuming the worst (need to replace most of the...

    91 FJ80 - Oil pressure question

    My 1991 LC (FJ80 - 3FE) oil pressure gauge pops right up to the 2nd line on start up/idle and just sits there regardless of driving conditions. Even when I punch it it doesn't move. Truck is running well. Has 10w30 synthetic in it. Oil level is good. I have read lots of threads in here on this...

    FJ80 n00b - slightly overwhelmed

    A few days ago I bought the LC I've long desired. A '91 FJ80. It has higher miles than I'd prefer (219k) but the body and interior are in good shape. I went into this fully prepared (emotionally and financially) to put a new Head Gasket in. This not my first Toyota truck. Service history shows...

    91 TLC. No cold start. Relay problem? Advice please...

    I am a new member of the TLC club as of today. Alas, as much research as I did here before buying I fell victim to a predatory seller. My "new" TLC will not start w/o a jump when its cold. Once it is warmed up it starts fine. I'm 99.9% sure the seller knew this as he came driving up with the...
