Thanks alot for your tips. I have a 1998 land cruiser in Bahrain similar to the one in your video but stick shift. I love my truck and I heard that in 2022 the land cruiser 200 production will be ceased. I am thinking of purchasing 2021 Toyota land cruiser series 76 or 79 diesel 4.5 L with a single turbo.

My mechanic was so honest he went out of business. He would check something for half hour and not even charge. I'd give him $50 and wouldn't take it. Shame he's gone now.

One old boy at work made a running joke of my Toyota labelling it the Taliban Truck! I still dont see the funny side to it till this day.

Iโ€™m curious about the front wheel bearing. Is it true that the bearing is in fact doubled and the vaseline has to be pressed in some sort of special press to remove the old one? If itโ€™s not done correctly (or not done at all), that wiggle is the result?

I had a 1984 Mustang SVO. One morning it wouldn't start. So I took the bus to work. While at work I was thinking that I should check the fuel shutoff switch in the back. Sure enough the fuel shutoff switch was somehow off.

Kind of a "different customer" that jumps from a rumble and squeak to "I need a motor". Perhaps the 180,000 miles made him think it was worn out? Anyway so true on the self diagnostic and the shop taking advantage of knowing the customer is prepared to spend a certain amount so why not take it from them.

I went to 2 separate Midas shops. One of the shops told me that my power steering rack was leaking. The other 3 months later told me my front struts were leaking. Also told me that my 2 month air filter need to be changed at my next oil change.... I change my own filters.... 2008 toyota highlander!!!

Strange to see numbering on the coils, since they're interchangeable. Wonder if they were previously chasing down a misfire.

How about going to a mechanic and telling him (falsely) that you want a second opinion from him? When he asks what the first opinion was just say "gee, I can't remember, he wrote it down in a report for me which I haven't studied properly yet". Surely unless he is bold as brass and truly crooked he wouldn't risk making up some horrendous problem.

A lot of guys (maybe myself included ...) want to show of their (limited ) knowledge to the mechanic, so they tell him what they think the problem is. That way you don't appear as an idiot, so you think, but Mr Wizard has actually explained that it makes you look like an even bigger fool. Great advice, thanks.

Just wanted to say the content is great and much better than Scotty or similar channels. 110% agree, if the customer tells us they think its A B C the customer service advisor will sell it and make us techs do it even if it's not the issue or isn't broken. It's a shame because it gives good techs a bad name.

Toyota built in a 25 year life to the cruise it in the rule book from day 1 . They just over built them on purpose thats why they are so hard to find used with less than 200k . People that own them just know they are so reliable they don't want to sell them . So when used car shopping expect to pay more for one . Your money is well spent

I had a rattle on my Buick Grand National, only at idle, but it did not sound good! I was worrying it was internal, checked around with a long screwdriver to my ear and everything internal sounds smooth. Turned out to be the heat shield at the back of the turbo! Always try to find the noise, touch things to see if the noise stops, etc. Noises can drive you crazy, and make you sick with worry.

The ticking noise commonly heard with the 2UZ motor is typically due small cracks on the exhaust manifold flanges or a slightly warped exhaust manifold where it bolts to the block . A fairly common failure on the 100 Series Landcruiser.

Sad, they can build the best vehicles in the world, but they don't know what material to use for a muffler. Maybe they should buy their mufflers from Honda? 18 years old, and 340,000 miles and I could sell our Accord mufflers second hand and comfortably guarantee them another 5 years.

When gasoline burns,it produces CO2 and *water* ,LOTS of it; if toyota did not put a small 1/8th hole on the lowest part of the muffler, the muffler *WILL* rust from the inside out, due to the accumulated liquid water inside in short trajects; shame; now...*you* put the said hole in there!! Rolls Royce always did; me too.

Iโ€™ve seen many 4.7L get a seeping water pump then at that time change timing belt changed also, mileage varies from 190,000 to 225,000 miles Iโ€™m in Alaska. Also at that time we take starter out and change the brass contacts, that way his starter doesnโ€™t go bad 20 to 40 thousand miles later

I'm surprised that the muffler is that bad of shape for a 2005, even with those miles.. I have a 2003 Tundra( this version only in a truck not a suv) and I haven't had mine rust like that. Must be where they put salt out in winter? Or close to the beach

If you're going into the outback in Aussie you don't want this one, you want the turbo diesel.
I wish I could find an honest mechanic. I've been having to DIY and honestly it's exhausting reading books and pausing videos during repairs. There are ZERO honest in the NW.

Someone has tried to "correct" the toe in not knowing that the bearing has play in it. So, he has adjusted the side to offset the play. And not even bothered to loosen the clamp; as it can be made when the area leaks a bit, Toyotas do not, so it does not slide and wrinkles. Shade-tree mechanic stuff...

If I worked at a place where charging for repair/services that were never performed, I'd quit after documenting and exposing all of it. I've been a professional mechanic for 15 years, and it disgusts me that this is common practice for some.

My wife has a 1998 Land Cruiser with 178k miles, I recently did a very complete overhaul by replacing the starter, timing belt, water pump, all the hoses, new radiator and alternator as well as the brake pump, and new battery as well. I expect the car to last easily another 20 years at least running smoothly. I should mentioned as well that I just bought a 2019 Tacoma TRD off-road, only Toyotaโ€™s!!

I had some odd metallic sounds coming from my car, that had me really concerned. My indy mechanic went straight to a small piece of exhaust shield that was contacting the resonator. I couldn't believe it made such noise.
