    Rod Knock or Exhaust Leak or something else...

    1993 FZJ80 335k miles She has purred like a kitten for the past 23k miles since I got her. Yesterday the low oil light came on (she burns a fair amount, no leaks). I dumped a couple of quarts of Delo 15w-40 in and drove on. Today I pulled on the interstate and heard the noise below. I was on...

    10/74 Steering Box Leak

    My manual steering box has a slight leak. I've been looking around and have found lots on the older boxes including rebuild threads. I was hoping someone out there sold a rebuild kit for it but it doesn't look it. Does anyone know of someone who sells one? Thanks!

    Coolant leak - need help identifying

    PS Fluid Leak

    I have replaced the PS Pump twice in the last two years and the pressure hose twice, but can't seem to quash the stupid leak. It now cost me an alternator rebuild. I have searched and read threads that seem to mostly be about the PS pump rebuild. Any thoughts on other sources of leaks of PS...

    Sunroof leak

    I've searched prior threads but didn't see anything similar to the leak I'm experiencing as it's NOT the drain channels. The plastic trim pieces surrounding the sunroof are colllecting water and dripping at the seams. It looks like the sunroof seal itself is bad. Has anyone encountered a similar...

    Windshield Leak Question

    Slowly but surly ticking things off my list. 06 LX. Atlanta has had a pretty good amount of rain. I have noticed water in both the driver and passenger floor areas. Not a ton but enough that it pooled on my Weathertechs and dampened the carpet underneath the mats. On one occasion, I noticed the...

    Sunroof leak fixed!.... I think

    I've been dealing with a leak for the past month or so, and I just had no idea what was causing it. During rainy days, water would seep trough the headliner on the driver's side A-pillar and would develop a slow drip. I was concerned it was somehow coming in my rain gutters as there are a few...

    Front axle leak?

    In no terms do I classify myself as a mechanic, so excuse me if my analysis sounds silly, but let me get to the point. I recently did a few thousand mile round trip from Michigan to Moab, Utah, in my 1991 FJ80, during the trip after around 300-400 miles of daily travel there would be a noticable...

    Ugh...Discovered a Leak but Can't Find the Culprit

    I was planning a run through Cleghorn Ridge tomorrow so I was just going through and checking fluids and noticed my transmission fluid seemed a bit low. It was warm and the reading was just below the hot mark. I honestly can't remember if that's the level it was the last time I checked. I...

    Repair Pinhole Leaks in Heater Pipe

    I have discovered pinhole leaks in the rear heater pipes. They are too small to see with the naked eye, and are only noticeable under pressure. Can I just solder these holes up, or will the leaks just come back? They are in a bend, so replacing that section of pipe will be a little more involved...

    FJ60 priorities?

    Collective genius at IH8Mud, I recently bought my first Cruiser, an 83 FJ60, bone stock, doors and top removed, roll bar added, 150K miles. Found it on CL, flew out to IL, and drove it home to UT. The 1800 mile trip was awesome. It ran fine, pretty gutless, averaged 11 mpg, would get hot...
