    P0401 Defeated - with pics

    Thanks for this summary, I hadn't seen this one before. I wasn't able to remove the EGR valve or do the vacuum testing on it per the FSM. Mine looks pretty rusty and according to the PO's very detailed records has not been replaced. I also didn't remove and check the EGR temp sensor for...

    P0401 Defeated - with pics

    Thanks @619TOY I've skimmed some of these threads but never wanted to start snipping wires. That's an interesting thread, I'm going to read through it.

    P0401 Defeated - with pics

    Over the weekend I attempted to tackle my P0401 on my 97 LX450 with 285k, as my inspection/registration is about to expire. I'd replaced the EGR vacuum modulator a couple weeks ago because it didn't pass the test, but that didn't stop P0401 from coming back. I ordered all the gaskets, EGR VSV...

    LC Mechanic in or near Dallas

    When I bought my 80 a few months ago I had Mike Dajda (like 'data') do the brake MC at the recommendation of the PO. Dajda had done the front axle and birfs for the PO a little over a year ago and I haven't had any problems. Google Dajda's Auto Care - he's a Land Cruiser guy and located in North...

    New Guy Introduction - 97 LX450 in DFW

    Joshau, thanks for the scoop on Costco, I'll definitely have to check there when I'm ready to pull the trigger on new rubber. My current tires (Michellin LTX) still probably have 30-40k left, so I'll probably have to be happy with them for a while longer. Those 295's look good on stock Joe...

    New Guy Introduction - 97 LX450 in DFW

    Thanks, always nice to know some more good shops around here. Are those 31's or 33's on the white 80 with the 3" OME? Did Tandem install the lift? If so, how much did it set you back installed?

    New Guy Introduction - 97 LX450 in DFW

    Hey Mudders :flipoff2: New guy here, bought my first LC back around Christmas after searching for a few months and am just getting around to introducing my new-to-me 97 LX450 (no lockers). After my wife and I had our first child in March 2016, it only took me a couple months to decide I needed...

    Power steering pump replacement

    I'm looking at buying a 97 FZJ80 that will need a PS pump replacement immediately. I'm reading a lot about how the gear must be seated on the shaft at the correct location or you'll get the tick. I'm concerned because the truck I'm looking at already has the ticking PS gear - does anyone have...

Thanks for the input everyone, hopefully I'll join the club and be bugging you guys for years to come. If I get a hard no...

    New member possible FZJ80 purchase - PS pump questions

    I've got a lot to learn from MUD... anybody have any ideas on how to avoid bodily harm from the wife if I buy this truck?? But seriously, I'd like to go check it out again this weekend and drive it w/o PS. I didn't test drive it the first time I looked and the owner started it up - the PS pump...

    New member possible FZJ80 purchase - PS pump questions

    Ok, good to know. I haven't read anything about a damaged gear causing problems where it fits into the engine, but this is part of my concern with this particular truck.

    New member possible FZJ80 purchase - PS pump questions

    Thanks agent, I will have to tread carefully in any future "discussions" about the LC with my wife. I seem to be a pro at digging myself in holes when we start talking about cruisers. I thought she'd be more inclined to letting me buy a cheaper FZJ80 that needed a little work, boy was I wrong. :doh:

    New member possible FZJ80 purchase - PS pump questions

    Thanks for the replies ifsmithy and Retrofive, ifsmithy - I read your thread, did driving with the nicked gear cause any problems when you had the ps pump/hoses replaced? Retrofive - thanks for linking all the write-ups, I'd seen all of these at one point but now I can refer to them quickly...

    New member possible FZJ80 purchase - PS pump questions

    Hey everyone, New member and my first post, I've been researching and looking for a FZJ80 for a several months now and there just happens to be a 40th anniversary edition at a local oil change and inspection shop (literally 1/4 mile from my house). The truck is what I'm looking for as a DD -...
