Re: Oil Pump Gasket

it is really rare that the pan gasket will leak, more likely it is running down to the pan from somewhere else, and than runs around the pan gasket, dripping off of it and making it appear to be coming from the pan. Usually it is not. most likely cause in the front of the engine is the main seal, w...

Re: Oil Pump Gasket

Anybody know the location of the "four bracket bolts" referred in the FSM for the removal of the oil pan? Also, what stabilizer are they talking about?

Nope, in order to get the pump off you have to remove the oil pan and the pickup.
That's what I thought. I'm gonna get the timing belt and pulley off today and see if I can see what shape the gasket is in. Luckily, I ain't going anywhere!

Oil Pump Gasket

Is it possible to replace the oil pump gasket without fully dropping the oil pan? I've got some oil puking from that general vicinity, so I suspect crankshaft seal or oil pump gasket but haven't gotten all the way in there. Just wondering if it's possible.

Re: Wiper arm question

I've got an '85 Land Cruiser that you can swap in '96-99 4runner arms for massive improvement. Might be worth scavenging some late 90s Corolla wiper arms from a junk yard to see if they fit. Toyota is pretty notorious for keeping some of those little things the same over generations and models so it...

Alternatives to OEM Ventilation Hose

I'm looking to replace the PCV ventilation hoses coming out of the top of the valve cover. Parts numbers 1226115020 and 1226215030. They're both NLA and I was looking for some advice as to what would be an acceptable substitute or what other folks have done to replace them. Thanks!

Shut 'er down, boys. Problem solved. Probably should have just consulted Google instead of clogging up the board. Thanks for your help, @BaileySims.

From the fuse box under the hood goes a single wire to the positive on the battery. That might have been disconnected, or one of the fuses could have blown?
YEAH! Just looked at the fuses and the big 60A one is blown. Gonna swap it out and hope that takes care of it. Thanks for the quick reply!

Re: Need Real-time Help. Car won't start.

Having trouble attaching the photo on mobile. It's the right side connection if you're looking at the alternator from the front. Battery side.

Need Real-time Help. Car won't start.

First post here, so hi everyone. My name is Matt. 84 SR5 Wagon. I was changing the oil today and the filter was stuck like hell. I grabbed my filter wrench and while undoing it, touched the alternator at the connection I'm pointing at in the attached photo. There was a small spark and now the car wo...
