    I can not seem to find a recent thread on what gear oil and ATF fellow 80 series owners are running in the recent years. Thanks in advance for everyone's suggestions. --Chase

    Possible Rear Main Seal Leak

    Hi everyone, I am hoping to get a second opinion on a leak between the transmission and the engine. I have noticed the leak might be getting a little bit worse after I repaired the valve cover gasket and the distributor o-ring. The photos attached don't show much oil leaking because I wiped the...

    GM  Oil Pressure sending unit ohms

    I have a 1970 FJ40 with a small block 350. I’m not sure of the year of the motor. I’m trying to find out the operating ohm range for the oil pressure sending unit. I can’t seem to find the answer anywhere. I’m new to the mechanic game so over explaining is welcomed. 😁

    Oil Pressure Issues in my 1983 FJ60

    So after reading around on some of the other threads I thought I would post my own just to get some opinions as I am still new to the Landcruiser life. I have a 1983 60 series with somewhere around 220k or more (odometer/speedometer cable needs replaced) on the original 2f and have owned it for...

    FJ60 Main oil gallery expansion/welch plug fix (the other one)

    This is for the rear main oil gallery expansion or Welch plug thats on the block of the FJ60, i think it was in 1985 that Toyota started doing NPT Hex plugs instead of these silly expansion plugs.... If your 2f engine is 1984 or older it will have this plug. Anyone who calls it a freeze plug is...

    Low oil pressure after oil change?

    Hey mud, Thought I’d try the Mobil 1 15w50 Synthetic from a couple threads here, oil pressure gauge reads low after ten minutes of idling. Any ideas? I cleaned out the connector on the sending unit, took the new yzdd3 oil filter off to verify it has oil...the gauge usually hangs out at the 2/3...

    Oil mist issues with ARB Air Lockers in a 200 series

    This is more of a “learn with me” than me asking for help. As some of you, I like to real world test just about everything, so I’m going to change how I talk about stuff, and try it this way instead. Make it less about me or theory of products, and more about actual results. Air Lockers. I...

    Oil all over engine compartment of '93

    Last week we were driving and the oil light came on, the engine started tapping, and when I looked there was oil all over the engine compartment and it looks like it was coming from the cylinder cover seal. Had it towed into a shop and they replaced the seal. Drove it home and about five miles...

    Burning major oil warming up / Choke on to stay on / not staying on at stops

    ok I've moved on to the next issue :) So my engine is gulping oil due to me yanking the choke when I fire it up. I assume because I'm "choking" the engine, it is burning more oil as it should and is meant to do. My issue is the friggin car won't stay lit. It wants to rumble out every time I...

    The Math isn't lining up

    So when my oil light comes on, I am just about exactly 1 Qt. low. Oil light has not been on in a long time. Dipstick looks good (although sometimes it reads waaay over F). Just completed an oil change, and decided to measure the amount that came out of the pan. According to this pic, I only...

    Front Differential Oil Capacity

    FYI - Documenting what I couldn't exactly find a number for. Just changed the front diff oil after 6 1/2 years and 35k miles of mostly low stress road use. Measured the drain out - right at 4 quarts of nice thick dark gray/green iridescent diff soup. I'd say it was about like a melted...

    When to change oil on a new car?

    Need your help. Picked up a 2019 Subaru Ascent the other day and owners manual says first oil change is 6 months or 6,000 miles. My plan is to change the oil at 1,000 miles to clear out all the oil after the break in period. At 6,000 miles I'll change it again to stay on schedule so I don't...

    Same or different gear oil for manual box and transfer case ?

    That perennial question 8-) I currently run Caltex VMX-M in both the 5-spd manual box (with Nulon G-70) and part-time transfer case (with no additive) of my 80. Looking to try something else. I've had recommendations to firstly not use the same oil in both and secondly to go with Redline MT-90...

    Different versions of genuine Toyota diesel oil filter for 1hz/1hdt/1hdft ?

    Hmmm. So there is what seems to be a genuine made-in-Japan oil filter 90915-30002, and a genuine not-made-in-Japan oil filter 90915-30002-8T (made in Thailand). No prizes for guessing which is the cheaper one. For anyone in the know, does that also mean the quality is significantly different...

    AC temps not as cold and temps fluctuating

    Last weekend, I made a foolish mistake trying when removing my alternator. I couldn't move what i now know to be the ac compressor far enough out of the way so I disconnected the tube going in to the top of it, result in the ac venting nto the air on my 1990 hdj81. This weekend I rented a...

    Oil pan damage and repair suggestions.

    As some know I am changing my oil and the PO had "gooked" up the oil pan plug with Permatex and a Toyota gasket. I removed the plug and Viola! there is a dent at the six o'clock position where the gasket goes. I am planning on using JB weld to level the dent out. Is there a better product or...

    Changing oil right now..a tale of two filters

    Hello guys, I am changing my oil and bought a Toyota oil filter 90915-YZZD3 and it is tiny compared to the Napa 21515 filter. The Napa filter looks like it goes on a Caterpillar bulldozer and the Toyota is literally "cute" next to it. The seal looks to match but the capacity is way different...
