    1HDT turbocharger failure. Advice?

    I was driving with 4k lbs trailer when I saw bunch of smoke behind me. Pulled to the side and saw that liquid was pouring over the exhaust on the driver side in the rear. The height was normal at that point. I continued for another 200 miles, the smoke came again couple times (I guess as it was...

    Is this what a rear heater failure looks like?

    Dripping coolant along passenger side step and under carpet. Does everyone just bypass it because its cheaper and also to not worry about the failure ever again?

    U-joint issue or driveshaft failure

    Hi I have a 99 LC with 230k in low speeds around 20mph you can hear a clicking. On the highway the whole car vibrates very badly you can feel the vibration in the seat also. I'm thinking its bad U joints but I'm not sure.

    Is the Mall Crawlers HG in danger?

    Edit----I'm an idiot who didn't even think about the Valve Cover gasket until after I posted. The VC gasket is most definitely toast. Sorry. Move along---- So I just finished replacing the O2 Sensors on my pretty stock 93 FZJ80 (230,000mi) and I did my typical under truck inspection. I...

    EVAP fails on long climbs at altitude

    Hi guys, Lateley I`ve been having gasoline smell in the car. It happens only on prolonged climbs (1-2h) and at heights (between 1500 and 4000 m). From what I`ve checked in FSM EVAP system sucks the vapors into the manifold only with hot engine and RPM above 3000, so my theory is that with...
