    Hey 97 land cruiser owner...I need a quick favor...

    Would someone with a 1997 Toyota Land Cruiser mind taking a picture of the emissions info label - located on the underside of your hood, upper left corner - and posting it here? I'd like to compare the official numbers for the 97 LC vs. my 97 LX 450. Thanks in advance! :cheers:

    1997 LX 450 Aftermarket Catalytic Converter CARB Woes...

    I'm not sure if I'm the only one or not, but let me share with everyone what I'm dealing with now... In late November 2009, I had an aftermarket catalytic converter installed on my 1997 LX 450. The shop I went to didn't have anything for the 1997 model, but they did have one which was approved...

    Wanted Y-Pipe

    Okay...who's got a Y-Pipe for me? It needs to be from a 95-97 FZJ80. The Y-pipe is the section of the exhaust that runs from the manifold to the cats. It's a bolt-on/off piece. If you still have the bolts...those would be nice to have as well... The earlier years (93 & 94) won't work due...

    1995 ford escort 1.9l engine died while running; will not start...

    Okay, so I was driving home from work in the 1995 ford escort given to us by my wife's grandmother the other day and the engine started to sputter, then it died as I was cruisin' along in traffic. I was only going about 35 mph at the time, so I put it in Neutral and coasted to a stop about 50...

    Hey Woody, Is there functionality available that allows for downloading threads? Something like the way we can download PMs into CSV, TXT, or whatever format?

    1997 FZJ 80 Air Intake Hose/Tube OEM Alternatives?

    Aside from OEM, does anyone know of alternatives that would work equally as well or better than OEM? I need to replace mine and would likely go OEM, but if there's something better, I'd be willing to take a look... Any thoughts? Comments? Suggestions?

    Rack & Pinion Bushing replacment?

    My brother-in-law's 99 Tacoma Pre-runner (2wd) may need the rack and pinionbushings replaced. There's a bit of movement when turning the steering wheel. He took it to a shop -- they quoted $300 to replace. No clicking or odd noises when steering...just some movement/play in the r&p mount...

    How much does high heat affect battery life?

    My optima blue top that I bought 16 months ago started failing. For the past 4 or 5 days, it seemed to have a hard time fully recharging. I took a couple day-long trips -- more than enough time to charge the battery, but when I'd start her up in the morning, it seemed to have very low on...

    Radiator Replacement Saga

    Well…what do you think it was? Some history… I’ve been experiencing some engine cooling issues since November 2005. I first noticed it while pulling my tent trailer to Surf-n-Turf 2005 – before then, I never had an issue. I really noticed a problem while pulling the same tent trailer to...

    A/C Compressor Problem

    Not a huge problem...it's just not coming on. I searched the archives, but couldn't find anything specific to what I'm experiencing. I took the wife's 97 LX 450 to the A/C shop. They confirmed that there's plenty of refrigerant in the system. The A/C compressor is not coming on in Park...
