    Trailer Wiring Harness Question

    Do check every thing. I've heard of this before but never heard the remedy to the fix. I decided when I got a trailer to pull behind my FJ I'd have the dealer do it. For $125.00 I have a perfectly functioning harness with no issues. It only took them 45 minutes. If you find the fix please post...

    Radiator replacement for LJ78 Prado

    I had mine fixed shortly after I bought my truck. a few years ago. Same kind of weapy leaking. I had mine recored. While they were at it I asked them to add another row of core over and above what the original rad had.. Which they did. Rad has been solid ever since the recore. Hope that...

    Ecu Pin Out

    The sensor is on the block above and sorta behind the starter. It is not the one on the thermostate housing. That would have been an easy fix. I have already fixed my problem ages ago,, check the posts.:hhmm:

    EVANS COOLANT??? Any experience with this?

    What I'm looking at is the steam that could be generated in the head. With the Evan coolant maybe it wouldn't happen as it won't boil till 375 degrees or somewhere near there. Which suggests to me it would carry the heat from the head better to the rad than a water based coolant. Just what I'm...

    lj78 retrofit radiator

    Woow that rad work was about June 06 And was close to $750.00 if I'm remembering correctly. That also included pulling it out and putting it back in with coolant I figured if I just recored it It was already the right size to fit back in and that it would be just a bit thicker with the extra...
