    1997 LX450 Transmission & Transfer Case Replacement Help

    Hello, I'm located in the Tucson, AZ area. I actually spoke with Jonathon in the Tucson area, and he has a transmission & transfer case and offered to swap out for me for $1600. He was finishing up a head gasket job, but I've sent him a couple of follow up messages on Facebook that show no read...

    Acceleration issue (video)

    I'm experiencing the same thing which has been occurring for the last month or so. My first question is, what is a TPS, and secondly, have you made any progress on this for any updates? As I was reading your description, I was like....damn, couldn't have described my own issue better.

    2 Issues I'm Looking for Help Diagnosing...A/T Oil Temp Light & New Power Steering Pump

    Also, quick thought from your notes, I do have a center diff lock switch. The light comes on that it's engaged. I often times on dirt roads or beach leave it locked in 4H. Could this be a system/part of the issue...related to the clutch/etc. you spoke of?

    Thank you so much. I've dove into and learned much about this truck over the years, but I know nothing with respect to gears/clutches/etc. If you were dealing with this situation, not having the knowledge of repairing on your own, what would you do? Speaking mostly to the transmission stuff...

    I don’t recall doing anything with the wires for the CD changer, as I deleted the CD changer, perhaps I just closed them off.

    There's an instructional thread here on Mud which describes what to do with the wiring for the Lexus system. It's been some time, but if I recall correctly, you actually have to buy some converting wire kits for a new stereo and actually connect them near the right side where the amp was located...

    Works well in terms of music. Honestly don't think I ever actually used it for calling but it does have that feature as well with a mic. It's powered with a USB cable. The only downside to this one, is that it doesn't charge while it's on. It has about a 4 hour battery life. I had another but...
