    2H stalling when overheating and engaging clutch

    Hi guys, First post here. Have looked and looked but can't find my answer. I have a 82 HJ60 with a diesel 2H in it. It's overheating slightly - working on that - have bought a new radiator, just trying to find time to install it. But, when it's hot, and I've been driving a while - highway for...

    Overheating in traffic, anyone running an aux fan?

    When I’m jumping off the highway, and usually in a bit of traffic my temp gauge starts to creep up… Especially if I had been running the aircon – then it flies up! Once I can get moving again it cools down fine – so my thinking is that an electric fan or two on the radiator to keep the air...

    Hey friends. Left my 2001 lx470 (97k miles) idling for a few minutes. Overheated and then the Heater t busted, or the heater t busted just because it’s old, not too sure. My neighbor turned the truck off, but he said there was smoke everywhere, etc. not sure what damage was done, but I replaced...

    1988 FJ 62 - mid life crisis. Carburetor advice?

    I bought my FJ62 in 2010, and have had overheating issues. Right off we diagnosed a blocked radiator made for high temperatures when you go above 2000 rpm. I had the core rodded out. Soon after the top tank started leaking. I had this resoldered near Timbuktu, again in Benguela in Angola, used...

    Service manual for FZJ105, Australia help??

    Struggling to find a FSM for a FZJ105 4.5L I6 gasoline without distributor. I think I have a timing issue and my mechanic has been unable to solve it. All I can find are manuals for the V8 100 series or the I6 80 series with distributor. Following a head gasket install, I am overheating and...

    Anyone have Head gasket front and back pics?

    I want to compare the head gasket that I can find locally here in Peru with the upgraded OEM head gasket. Unfortunately Toyota doesn't carry it and don't really want to wait a month to get the part shipped from USA if I don't have to. Oh yeah, the head gasket slowly surrendered while on what...

    91 Getting Hot

    After years of wanting one, I finally picked up my first lc. It is '91 and definitely a project (I don't think the previous owner ever thought about maintaining or fixing anything on it) but I am enjoying bring in back to its former glory. Anyways, a few weeks ago I took the rig up to the...

    HJ61 12HT overheating issue

    Hi all - I'm still relatively new to the cruiser world, but my JDM HJ61 has recently started overheating - well really, running on the warm side, which is a new occurrence -- and one that I'd like to stop. I've done my damndest to figure out what's going on (using the search function on MUD) but...

    Pegged temp gauge briefly

    Recently, had a cold snap in these parts. A bit below freezing for a few days, snow & freezing rain. Chose to drive the Cruiser, due to conditions. Wasn't worried about the temps, as I knew I had ample antifreeze. Drive slowly over big hill near start of my commute. On the downhill, notice wisps...

    Burping the Temperature Sender on a 2F after a Coolant Change

    I thought I'd share a discovery I made that was revealed by some testing. I've had suspicions about this for a long time. When the coolant is drained and replaced on a 2F, an air pocket gets created inside the sender's adapter fitting which prevents the sender from being fully immersed in the...

    A Coolant System Pressure Test

    As a follow-on diagnostic to an ongoing engine coolant overheating problem, coolant system pressure has been a question. So, I've finally gotten around to rigging up a radiator / coolant system pressure gauge that can be monitored while driving around at speed, rather than just guessing and...

    Radiator Flow Rate Test

    So, I've been having overheating problems. It's a familiar story if you read here much, and other forums, too. I could recite the same litany of "did you check this, did you check that" from Isuzu diesel conversions (Wheelingnoob - sheesh! It was like reading "Lord of The Rings") to Subarus to...

    22r strange overheating.

    Hello everyone hopefully someone can help me. I just got a 1990 4Runner with a 22re in it. The engine was rebuilt and has only 50,000 miles. When I purchased it I drove it about 2 hours on the Interstate (70 mph max, 5th gear, 3k rpms) with no trouble until I stopped at my destination. Then it...

    13BT Overheated

    Still doing some diagnosing today, but we took the BJ74 down to Vegas on Saturday...got about 30 miles out and it overheated. Temp gauge was pegged, steam from the overflow. We were driving 70-75mph with a mild headwind on a cool-ish rainy NV day. @Mace rescued us - THANKS! System was "dry"...

    Do I Need a New Water Pump? Maybe I'm Just Paranoid?

    I'm a total noob here, so bear with me! About a month ago I was letting my cold blooded FJ60 warm up for about 20 or 30 minutes (it was frozen solid, only about 5 degrees outside). When I came out I noticed a large pool of coolant under that car. It took me awhile to locate the leak because...
