    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).

    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...

    Engine Temps,Thermostats, and Jiggle Valves

    At the risk of embarrassing myself (I should be used to it by now), and in the spirit of saving YOU from the same troubles...make sure your Thermostat Jiggle Valve is at the TOP! For sometime (too long) I have been unhappy with my engine temps. They were never bad/too high (never exceeding...

    Hey All, I recently got an entire throttle body from a junkyard that was from a 02' Sequoia.
