    Vent temps....heater on. Whatcha got?

    I used to get 160f at the vents using the same thermometer but did a coolant flush and must have introduced a air pocket somewhere. For the past 2 years since the flush mine will only get to 120f in the winter (ambient temp raining from 25 to 40f). I flushed the core after and still no change.

    EGR VSV Success on my LX450 (fj80)

    My CEL has been on the past year and it was time for the emissions check. ObdII said P0401 leading to this post. Changed the vsv and drove a few miles. Dropped into the emissions garage and passed!! Btw, that bracket that blocks the vsv was a royal pain to remove.

    ARB Bull Bar will not fit

    Same here. I installed an arb this year and it didn't slip on easily. Used a sledge hammer, wd-40, grease and 2 other friends to slide it on.

    Are any of you daily driving their 80-Series?

    I rotate between my 01' audi s4 and the 80. My daily commute is about 30miles round trip so it's not bad. Fill up between the both is negligible since the Audi takes 93 octane and I always go to Costco for fuel as it's the lowest price in town. Maintenance costs are higher on the Audi for the...

    RTH: no start no clicks

    Looking at the starter from the bottom. It appears that the bottom bolt had sheared off from the last install. Please tell me that the starter will come out if the top bolt is removed? Or is the bolt threaded into the shaft of the starter? Pic is from the bottom looking up. I believe the bolt...

    Got it started! I kept knocking on the starter and it finally turned over. Symptoms: turn key and no response. No clicks. Voltage gauge would dip a bit but that's it. Time to buy some parts! Thanks all

    Micro-Tube Parallel Flow Condenser

    One thing I haven't read yet is PAG oil. I replaced my condenser and drier last year and added the appropriate amount amount of PAG oil directly to the condenser and pulled a vacuum. Everything worked as it should but I did notice that in high 90's plus humidity it took about 10 mins of highway...

    LED interior lighting upgrade

    Just an FYI. When I used no name brand leds from eBay I had static on my radio and my keyless remote had issues recognizing when I would touch the handle in the winter time or when it rained. I swapped all of my inside bulbs to Philips brand leds and the problem went away. Most of which were...

    What is involved in swapping the rear hatch glass?

    I wouldn't mess around with the gasket and removal of the glass if it's good. Could risk breaking the glass when either removing or reinstalling and open up a can of worms. Why don't you try to remove the privacy tint? How to remove Lexus Lx450 rear glass factory tint.
