    105 series 1HZ RPM at a little bit over 120 KPH. Isn't the RPM a little bit on the high side for this speed?

    Solved: Drone @ 2400-2800 rpm - frame to body contact

    I recently changed tires on our hundy from Toyo ATIIs to Michelin LTX MS2 to quieten the ride down a bit for some long trips we have coming up, and have discovered that we have a pronounced droning noise at 2500 rpm - which is unfortunately right at our cruising speed of ~ 70 mph. Drone starts...

    Post Rebuild Engine RPM Drop Question

    Hey Folks! Just put in a rebuilt 1FZ and overhauled the tranny. All is together and running smoothly, however there is a slight drop in RPM's when I let of the gas at 2k RPM or above (under load) and the check engine light flashes. It has stalled from this twice. I'm thinking the belts could be...

    Cruiser wants to die at idle /low RPM with any load on engine

    I was out with the wife and child running errands when my Cruiser developed a new issue that increased in intensity relatively quick. Truck has been running fine, it just got a "tune up" with new plugs, coil packs, fuel filter, air filter, and cleaned the throttle body. I noticed while parking...

    Grinding Noise at High RPM - Transmission or Transfer case?

    After some searching nothing really matches the issue I'm having. I've recently done a full knuckle rebuild with wheel bearings, rotors, calipers and pads. The noise was present before and still exists; basically when I have the truck in gear it starts making this grinding noise whenever I go...

    Nothing Works! RPM will not increase above 2000 in D

    A month ago, I took my Cruiser to a mechanic my local off-road club had recommended. He said that the fault was with my neutral safety switch. He pointed out that none of the dash gear indicator lights were working except R and L. He also pointed out that the R and L gears work properly. In 2...

    Transmission Range Sensor?

    I can't seem to figure out this problem on my new LC. It's a '94 FZJ80, fuel injection, automatic. While in D, the RPM will not go above 2000. It stops right at 2000; hard ceiling. In P or N, the RPM behaves properly. There is no CEL. I went to a local shop a couple of days ago, and after a...

    1991 3FE sluggish in hot weather

    My cruiser gets sluggish in the heat, especially towards 30 C (90 F). It seems to have a harder time accelerating, even though it runs at the same RPM to maintain speed. Temperature gauge holds steady, too, and all fluid levels appear to be good. I've also noticed it has a harder time...

    I just installed a tachometer in my 73 FJ40 with stock F motor and drive train. 2 questions: 1. Is the stock rearend 4:11 gears? That is what I was told. 2. I am taching at 3500 RPM at 70 MPH. It sounds to me more like it is wound to about 5000 RPM but the tach is showing 3500. Does that...
