    I just realized I have no idea how alarm systems work...I know I use the same button to lock or unlock and the red light goes blinky but what if I lost the remote? My spare key is the valet key so I could get in but wouldn't the alarm just keep sounding after I unlocked it? I guess the same...

    Starting after left sitting for 3 months

    Hi all - I just got back from an extended work assignment and am excited to finally start baselining the truck I bought in May 2018 (thread to come). However, the last time I drove it was Oct. 12, 2018 and the last time I filled fuel was likely two weeks before that. I experienced a no-start...

    Troubleshooting brake pedal

    Hello, For various reasons I asked a shop to install new rear rotors/calipers/pads for me. I had bought the truck a few months back and it came with one rear rotor that was very scored due to what looked like a rusty caliper. I let it sit for 4-6 weeks and one day it developed a slow brake...

    Could use some second opinion(s)/buying advice

    Context: Never had an 80, would like one. No garage at the moment, just surface parking. However, perfectly happy to do as many minor things as I can. So had a quick test drive of a 1995 (with cloth!) last night as it was getting dark. Today I go look at a 1996 for comparison. Neither has...

    If not, any interest in one? I see 1990-92 diesel cruisers for sale in the $15-20k range here in the US or in Canada and have always wondered what it would take to get one over here from Japan directly. My limited initial research indicates that these might be overpriced but I want to make sure...
