    KZJ78: Wont Shift Above 3rd

    I bought some shift solenoids. Was there any filters you bought or do you clean and reuse the filters.

    KZJ78: Wont Shift Above 3rd

    How long do you warm up the truck before you notice it goes back to normal? I’m wondering if my auxiliary transmission cooler is making it more difficult to warm up. I’m gonna put some cardboard in front of it to see if it helps warm things up.

    KZJ78: Wont Shift Above 3rd

    Thanks Tigris! I did have the button pressed down. However, even after doing that still had the same issues. I’ll replace the ECU with my old one (traces were messed up due to the leaky caps but soldered in jumpers and seemed to have worked). I’ll see if that changes anything. I’m wondering...

    KZJ78: Wont Shift Above 3rd

    Hi All, Had my kzj78 sitting for a few weeks as I was traveling for work. Came back and took it for a spin and it wouldn’t shift past 3rd. Also my gauge cluster lights kept resetting after I turn the car on each time. So I decided to get battery tested thinking it could be a battery issue...

    Mysterious Dash Light

    So I went to investigate further short of having to remove my entire dash to get to it. It’s a little bulb sitting just behind the O/D off indicator. Issue is it isn’t the light for that, and has a separate bulb that turns it on and is working fine. It’s on too short of a wire to reach behind...

    Mysterious Dash Light

    Just noticed this mysterious dash light. My headlights aren’t on and there’s no other thing im seeing light up. It’s just in the corner on my kzj78. Any ideas what the hell this is? Im too stupid to see what it’s for.

    Toyota Diesel Tuners

    So you don’t know any tuners? I completely understand but I want to at least work with what I have as best to its ability. I could do an engine swap but either way I don’t know of any tuners knowledgeable to work on these trucks. From what I’ve read you can totally up the boost on the 1KZTE and...

    Toyota Diesel Tuners

    I’ve been calling all the diesel shops around Oregon to see if they could tune my 1KZTE since I’ve got all the cooling sorted - I want to do start getting more power out of it and suit it for my driving. I’ve heard just upping the boost and switching to a manual pump would do it, however I...

    1KZTE 105° C Temp

    Thank you for those tips. Is there any walk through for adjusting the valve to come on earlier? Did you have to do any tuning once changing the boost?

    1KZTE 105° C Temp

    Stock boost at the moment (I think it’s 9 or 10 psi based on my gauge). Thinking of upping it to 12-13psi. I’ll look into wastegate. Thank you so much.

    1KZTE 105° C Temp

    First time really seeing that temp for the coolant. But it was also first time having a gauge to see the exact temp. Test run with the electric fan. However EGTs we’re 100-200 degree lower than prior to FMIC. Some of my earliest trips with the car and EGT gauge id see 1200+ for short stretches...

    Oil Around Turbo

    Hey All, I recently added an intercooler and noticed some oil around the turbo intake pipe. Also while driving, a weird noise that started coming from that area that sounds like wind noise whenever i put my foot on the gas. It's different from the typical whistle I hear from the turbo. Almost...

    Recent Upgrades: Intercooler / Electric Fan / Thermostat + Oil Leak Question

    Thank you - now that my viscous fan clutch is out I’m going to refill the fluid in it and put a 10 blade fan on it. I’ll give it a shot again. Currently on stock boost but I just bought a boost controller so I intend to up it some.

    Recent Upgrades: Intercooler / Electric Fan / Thermostat + Oil Leak Question

    This weekend I did a ton of stuff to the KZJ78 - but it does come with some observations and questions I was hoping to get from the experienced folks here. I also want to special shoutout to epaul for his intercooler build thread which helped me with mine. If anyone has any questions and is...

    Check Engine Light Dim - KZJ78

    Hey all, Stupid n00b question, but I noticed my check engine light is very dim when driving normally. It threw me off and I checked codes and got the constant blinking which meant it was normal. So I’m guessing the very dim check engine light is normal? When I put the key in the “ON” position...
