    Radiator rotting away.

    This is the inside of the top coolant output. Is the corrosion normal for an aluminium pipe?

    Drivetrain issues

    It was only a misfire! I met with Jonheld and he was convinced it was a misfire but I wasn’t sure because there was no dip in the tachometer needle, but he was right. I knew the rough idle was definitely from the oil in the distributor and was shocked to find the driveline issue to be related.

    Radiator rotting away.

    I forgot to mention that three years ago the alternator was replaced due to an intermittent red light on the volt meter. The alternator was replaced when it started over charging, could this have been the reason for the electrolysis or does it take years to happen?

    I do not have a dual battery installed, just the stock battery, and alternator.

    Radiator rotting away.

    I use Prestone’s 50:50 premix. I drain the radiator and block and flush it with two cycles of tap water, so any tap water left in the system would be a minimal amount left in the heater cores. I don’t live or drive near the ocean, the debris on the bottom is some leaves and dust that stuck to...

    Radiator rotting away.

    I bought my 1993 Land Cruiser in 2006 with a radiator core that was disintegrating above the bottom tank. The radiator was aftermarket so I replaced it with a TRAD three row copper core from Cruiser Dan when my head gasket went a year later. About four years ago the radiator started leaking...

    Drivetrain issues

    UPDATE: I discovered that my problem is not drive line related, turned out to be a distributor filled with oil. The internal shaft seal is leaking oil in the inside of the distributor and when making right hand turns the centrifugal force was pushing the oil towards the rotor causing the...

    Drivetrain issues

    Currently I have my rear driveshaft removed and CDL locked so by that fact I can eliminate the VC from being the problem because the rear transfer output is locked to the front and not attached to the rear axle, or am I missing something? I noticed today that when I get that bucking in the...

    Drivetrain issues

    Dave thanks for the information. The viscous coupler is still in there as far as I know, I’m a third owner and it doesn’t look like anyone has been inside of it. If I remove the VC what will I be missing, I mean Toyota put it in there for a reason. Could my transfer leak from the...

    Drivetrain issues

    A few months later and my drivetrain bucking is even worse, now it’s noticeable on all right hand turns even at low speed like turning a corner. I’ve eliminated the drive shafts as I have pulled out one at time and locked my CDL no difference at all. Could this be a dying transfer case I do...

    Drivetrain issues

    It’s fine going straight but does seem to have a little flutter going uphill under throttle.

    Drivetrain issues

    I was wondering what could be the cause of a slight bucking/ jerking in my drivetrain while making slight right turns (¼ turn on wheel) on the highway under throttle? This doesn’t happen at low speeds or if the wheel is turned hard over. Thanks George
