    Central locking & elec windows failed

    Hi Neil, I think you already checked your fusebox ... Check main switch in drivers door panel. Disconnect and clean switch and contacts. you could also bypass it with a wire so you can check if the problem is in the main switch. Mine had the same issues, and i bought a new switch at Alibaba for...

    Auto Gearbox Oil Flow

    Graham, if you have air in the lines, it won't be a problem. The pump pick-up element / filter is at the bottom of your gearbox. If the pump is working it will push the oil trough the lines. (and push out any air) - You could check for bent or damaged flat tubing. (most unlikely) - Check for...

    Ever seen a VZJ90 with removable back-top ??

    Hi Ed, i think this is how they met the Danish rules indeed. Also registered in Denmark as a commercial vehicle, so it makes sense in that way. Only question .... what is the cost of this conversion ? And will the cost benefit ? In Holland the benefit of a commercial vehicle is about 800 euro /...

    Hi fellow LandCruiser 90 owners, I imported this car from Denmark, anybody knew of the existence of this type ? Can it be originally Toyota ???

    Yes sorry, another - but different elec aerial problem!

    You checked inside the antenna ? Take top bolt of, and extract antenna by top button. If it stops pull out the rest of it. Should be a kind of tie-rib with teeth connected to the bottom. Maybe a piece of it is broken. They sell new antenna revision sets at rough trax. I inserted one a few years...

    1999 5vz-fe Prado timing belt question

    Joshua, get a workshop manual of your car, and find al the specs ..... Like Haynes for prado / colorado 90

    1999 prado weird noise

    Hi Joshua, Is it a manual or automatic gearbox. If it's a manual gearbox is suspect the bearing from your clutch group. A good mechanic can tell you .... difficult to hear on video .... but sounds the same .... Good luck

    Coolant Loss

    checked the valve of your heater system under the hood ? also a common problem for minor leaks because of age.

    INTERESTING..Didnt think it was possible

    If you really want to drive on LPG there's only one good system. The LPI system is a liquid gas injection system, with gas injectors directly in front of your engine air intake. so if you have a v6, you have six injectors. It works in the same way as your petrol injectors and use the same timing...

    Sudden power loss on motorway

    I don't drive a diesel, but former diesel cars i drove had a diesel fuel cut-off valve to stop the engine. Normally while running it has a 12 volt current on it to stay open. With ignition switch off current stops and valve closes. To test this, you can make an electrical bypass. But again, i...

    Front Brake Shims !

    Doesn't matter what brand pad or disq you use. I always use a copper based paste between brake pads and calipers for noise reduction. The same paste i use for greasing the pads in the slots. It's heat resistant, works perfect, and cost almost zero euro's More important is how you brake it in ...

    Is this just a little rust or leading to bigger issue later?

    Pre diluted glycol based ready mixed with additives. If you mix it with water...... - your anti freezing point goes up. - water oxides your radiator - boiling point changes so never mix with water .....

    Hi, Hutton... Always use the same as prescribed, and ready mixed. You will have constant quality and anti freezing protection. The pink has additives for anti-corrosion of the complete cooling and heating system and are mostly used for aluminium engine's. As long as it's bright pink it's ok...

    Seatbelt dash warning light

    They talk about " Buckle & occupant detection " powered by a switch. I once took out both front seats, and didn't see any cable connected to the seats, so they have to talk about the switch that's connected to the belt winding mechanism ? what else ? Normally when you start the car, light comes...

    Seatbelt dash warning light

    i looked up the diagram at "max Ellery's workshop book" The light has only one fuse (10 amp nr 2), but can't be that one because it's in the positive feeding line. this means that the light is feeded constantly 12 volt + and switched on and of negatively by a switch. In the diagram they talk...

    What is this part that is leaking?

    If it's leaking replace imediately. If it's sweating you can drive with it (for emergency) as long as you keep checking your fluid level in the brake cannister under the hood. Because the cannister is at higher level as lsv there won't get air in the lines, but only fluid out. (Gravity at work)...

    Coolant Mystery

    Hi Mel, I don't know if you fixed the problem yet, but i had the same problem a few years ago. Normally they change coulant every two years ? By the look in your overflow tank you can tell the condition of your fluid. Should be red - rose ! (for aluminium engine's suitable) If it's dirty and...

    Best oil for 3.4 petrol 90 series?

    I use half synthetic 5W40. Just because it can be used also in my other car(mercedes SLK 230 Kompressor). Because of the additives it doesn't have that much difference with 10W40. Toyota landcruiser 90 3.4V6 automatic with LPI conversion. 350.000 km built 1997
