I ordered the FSM this morning but it does not help me at the moment.

Under the FJ62 there are some (two?) hard lines that run close to the transfer case and rear drive shaft. These lines have a U shaped hose in them. One of my hoses is leaking. What are these lines/hoses for and how difficult is it to replace the hose? I can not really get under the truck right now to see what kind of fluid is leaking as I'm in my monkey suit. :doh:

Thansk for the help.

I need to replace a couple of radiator hoses so I probably should do these at the same time right. I could never pinpoint the problem with Phoenix--now I know. No stormwater drains. :doh:

when I bought my fj60 with 92K......one of the 1st things I did was replace ALL the old hoses............sure they looked fine and many were fine.........but the piece of mind was SO much worth it. Took me a good 6 hours to do em all.

Don't encourage people to drain their fluids into storm drains - very bad for the creeks and fish. It is simple enough to simply put an oil change catch tub under there whrn you pull them, then dispose of the fluid at a recycling center.
