    Asking price for 1996 FZJ80 with engine knock

    Well, title says it all. I'm looking to sell my 80. It has a pretty serious lower end knock, and every resource I've read says that it will be needing a full engine rebuild. Where should I start with the price? I wish I could part it out, But I don't have the garage space or the time to tear it...

    Help - Loud Engine Knock '84 FJ60

    When I was back at my place in Nevada in mid-December, I started up my stock '84 FJ60 (~182,000 miles) to let it run for a while, as I usually do while I'm out there. It's been sitting (off and on) for almost nine years. Just before I parked it nine years ago I installed new plugs and wires...

    Knocking Sound Top End or Low End?

    My '96 cruiser with 287,000 has a knock bad enough to throw a code for a knock sensor. The knock is rhythmic and increases on acceleration. In trying to determine if it's a bearing or something in the top end, I listened to the engine using a stethescope and a long screwdriver. My assumption is...

    Funky Engine noise in my 1FZ-FE. Help?

    I thought the culprit was leaky flange gaskets. After getting those replaced, the sound is still there. Any ideas? It's in a 1996 LC80 with 184k miles. > Thanks!
