    '88 FJ62 - Mysterious Coolant Leak

    I have been at wit's end trying to chase a mysterious coolant consumption issue. Several months ago I noticed my reservoir tank had been at the minimal mark, I assume staying at a level that the pickup can no longer take in radiator fluid. I filled it up with Toyota Red 50/50 and thought...

    GX470 Coolant leak - head or ?

    2003 GX470 with 150k miles. Pump and belts done by PO at ~120k, and I just replace the thermostat inlet housing o-ring which I though was causing the leak due to visible seepage. After filling the reservoir to the full line, the next day it's back to half full. Coolant is visible on the front...

    How bad is this coolant leak and where might it be coming from?

    Hi all, I've got a nasty coolant leak but I'm not exactly sure of the cause or where it's coming from. It sounds (loud hissing) like it's coming from inside the area circled in the image below. Below that is a YouTube video of what's happening down below. Any thoughts on what might be the...

    Coolant T broke - plastic fell into engine block

    I was doing preventative maintenance on my ‘99 Land Cruiser by replacing the plastic T’s on the coolant lines. I eventually got the clamps backed away, and the first T removed intact. The 2nd T, closer to the driver side, broke inside the hose that goes to the engine. While trying to get the...

    Heater Tubes HJ60

    Does anyone have access to the steel tubes that go across the injector/valve cover area connecting the heater core valve area to the head and water pump area?....or can rubber hose be used? My heater was totally bypassed because it was in Panama (not much need for heat there).

    Can anyone help me identify this.. and maybe a part number too?

    Hey guys back for yet another adventure in my 1998 LX470 that I bought on a whim here in Georgia, for a mere sum of $1800. As you could have guessed it, the car came with some issues, and the seller was not very upfront about them from the getgo. Though he may have thought he was slick with...
