    Ok I need some help on a FJ40 I’m getting

    What are these bolts for? The one on the left is leaking oil. Seems like a bad washer / gasket but I don’t know. Secondly, before I took the fj40 on a test drive I noticed slimy yellow buildup in oil cap along with water drops on it. Is this normal or a cracked head gasket? The oil pan was...

I am struggling to find much information on here, but then again I am new to the forum. I see a lot of folks doing the break hoses but my lines/tubes are rusty. Another mechanic asked...

    ABS Delete Experience?

    Hey all, I'm overhauling the brakes on my 80 and there's a ton of threads about mushy brakes that are difficult to bleed. I haven't gotten that far yet, as I'm still on axle stands waiting on a few more parts. However, I'm thinking ahead. One of the solutions I've seen posted is to delete the...

    Preventative Maintenance to prevent brake failure

    Just had a friend lose his brakes on his 06 100 (approx 185k miles) pulling out of our office parking deck. Luckily he had another floor to go before exiting so he rolled to a safe stop. I looked through a few threads and saw some good comments on the brake issue but nothing to set my mind at...

    Brake Under Boosted - 98 LX470

    Issue: My brakes (were done at Lexus dealership before I got the car) don't seem to bite hard when I press the pedal. The pedal is not low and the brake action is pretty linear but to get any significant response I have to dig in more. Interestingly, if I take my foot off and then press back...

    Did brake flush cause new Master Cylinder problems?

    I'v researched a few of the brake failure threads but this seems to warrant it's own as it is a specific sequence of events with a dealer service center leading to a potential failure. I have been driving my new-to-me '04 LX 470 for about 3-4 weeks and most mornings on first start-up the brake...

    Bigger tires; bigger rotors?

    So, I am looking at putting 35's on my 09 LC here in the near future and figure at that time I will also re-gear it. Thinking 4:56 or there about. But I was also thinking being able to stop would be nice. For those with 35's did you get bigger or vented rotors to help with stopping?
