    Serp Belt Pulley Squeak on Start up

    I had a little noise up front at start. My fan bracket seized up soon after, snapping my serpentine belt on the freeway. The tensioner is easier, but you might check the fan bracket also if you have the fan off.

    I think you mean the motor? I took my motor off and took it tdown to an electric motor shop. They said my motor was fine. The accumulator is the gold part on top that has grooves on the top for toyota sst

    Brake booster pump acting up

    I have a master cylinder rebuild kit sitting on my work bench. What I've read so far doesn't point to the MC. Brakes feel great. Any idea how to remove the accumulator off of the pump? The FSM Capps for a special tool.

    Brake booster pump acting up

    I can start with bleeding them again today. I've had the assembly out a few times now. I always bleed the brakes when I put it together. The problem goes away for 500-1000 miles. I thought the replacement booster assembly would stop it, but it is the same symptoms.

    Brake booster pump acting up

    I bought the pump assembly from eBay. I do have the techstream cable but not 100% sure how to use it. I'll definitely look into it.

    Brake booster pump acting up

    I swapped out a brake booster assembly and bled the brakes. No alarm for about a month. Then the exact same issue. Swishing sound coming from the booster assembly followed by the alarm. Bad luck with another bad assembly? It's $1,100 new but I've read other threads that say people have replaced...

    Something timing belt-ish failed

    It does feel rewarding but I can't put my socks on without being reminded of the "rewards". Ask me in a few days. I really appreciate all your advice and direction. It definitely helped. I've been using Rotella for about 10 years since I researched for my 80. I live in central California so...

    Something timing belt-ish failed

    Good call on the alternator brushes. It was $20 and 10 min. There wasn't much left on the old ones. Be careful putting the long 12mm bolts in the fan bracket and alternator. The one with the nut goes with the alternator. I switched them and struggled with how to put the alternator on untill I...

    Brake booster pump acting up

    I'm thinking that air is getting into my line. I get a pulsating, swooshing sound, followed by all alarms, then everything is ok. Never had a brake performance problem. And the alarm goes off. It's only happened once since I replaced the assembly. Yours might be the more common problem of a...

    Brake booster pump acting up

    I took mine to an electric motor shop. They were going to rebuild it for not much but it turned out that my motor was fine. I have a similar issue. I bought a whole booster, assembly, motor on ebay. I installed it and the issue went away for a bit, but it has come back once. That’s another...

    Something timing belt-ish failed

    Couldn’t find it in the video or tutorial, but I found it in the FSM. The two bolts for the water inlet pipe, where the FSM says needs to be torqued down within a few minutes, needs to be torqued to 13 ft lbs. The Permatex I used says hand tighten until it starts to come out, then let it...

    Something timing belt-ish failed

    Forgive me, but this is totally new. I think that I have the timing belt gear on correctly. The notch in the gear is ligned up with the bump on the engine. It is difficult to get the cam gears to stop perfectly when trying to lign up the line on the gear with the line next to the T on the...

    Am I ridiculous for preferring a Land Cruiser over a LX470?

    Opinion on timing belt

    Mine just broke while driving just over 200,000 miles and I'm sure it was the second belt. Lots of posts confirm that most likely there is no internal damage. Wealth of information, especially 2001LC to help do it. Might be a good idea to do it. My fan bracket froze up in Feb. Snapping my...

    Something timing belt-ish failed

    Good call on the alternator brushes. I'm just over 200,000 miles. Online shows 2 parts numbers that fit. 27370-20130 Fits 2UZFE/UZJ100 Production models between 08/2002-07/2004. 27370-75060 Fits 2UZFE/UZJ100 Production models between 01/1998-08/2002. They are about the same price but not...
