  1. New battery starts up but dies in idle

    Maintenance Tech
    1st give us your vehicle make, model, year milage. 2nd is your check engine light on? If so we need the codes. You can go to AutoZone or some parts places and they will pull the codes for you. 3rd, sounds like you may have had a bad battery and the starting problem might be fixed, but if it...
  2. Rear Differential fluid change

    Maintenance Tech
    I use Amsoil think it's 75W-90 severe gear in mine. Just go to their website and put in your vehicle info in and they will tell you what you need and how much. They have the cool squeeze packs which makes it easier. As far as how, it's easy. Remove the fill plug first, then the drain. Clean the...

  4. Transmission Fluid Line ??

    Transmissions / Transfer Cases / Traction Aids
    It looks like the transmission cooler lines are sold as a assembly, meaning both inlet and outlet lines come as one piece. I looked them up on Rock Auto website. They price between $35 - $50 depending on which brand you get. I would check AutoZone and O'Reilly's, depending on what you have...
  5. 10 year mark, low mileage maintenance

    Maintenance Tech
    I do brake, power steering and coolant every 7 years. Brake fluid absorbs water over time, so don't leave it in too long. Rock Auto has the good Aisen, spelling, coolant red color. Steering you can suck out with a turkey baster and refill multiple times to get as much as possible. Suck, fill...

  9. Need AC troubleshooting opinions

    Maintenance Tech
    I think the system was empty for 2 days before I got it repaired. I did run the engine at about 1500 RPM for about 30 sec a few times and the high side pressure would slowly increase. The clutch is running normal. The dryer wasn't replaced. I did bleed the system while it was blowing 60f air...
  10. Need AC troubleshooting opinions

    Maintenance Tech
    So here is the scenario, after some off roading my high pressure line, the 1 that runs in front of the condenser and has the high pressure quick fitting on it, was rubbing against the frame and developed a pin hole leak. Took it in and got it replaced and serviced back up. Now when the outside...

    Just out of curiosity have you been servicing your transmission, drain and fill, filter change at normal intervals, 50K-70K miles? Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  12. 2010 Front Axle Assy. Part # Confusion

    Transmissions / Transfer Cases / Traction Aids
    So after looking at a few different websites for replacement CV shafts, it looks like they are all the same, 2007-2014. If you need a good repair manual I would recommend alldatadiy.com it is $20/year for 1 vehicle and $10 more for additional vehicles. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  13. Broken Ring Gear Teeth

    Transmissions / Transfer Cases / Traction Aids
    Thanks for everybody's input. I'm back on the road again and about 250 miles into my 500 mile break-in period. The shop used Yukon gears this time. The same guy who did my gears 5 years ago also did them this time. We will see how long they last me this time....:)
  14. Broken Ring Gear Teeth

    Transmissions / Transfer Cases / Traction Aids
    yeah I've thought of going back to aluminum wheels just to reduce the weight a bit. But I hate spending $200 per wheel or more. My steelies were $52 each....:) The main reason i went with 4.56 gear was drivability. After mods my FJ just weighed so much the 3.73's made it terrible to drive...
  15. Broken Ring Gear Teeth

    Transmissions / Transfer Cases / Traction Aids
    I had a off-road shop here in Dallas called Baertrax do it. Like I said it was about 5 years ago now. I did the recommended 500 miles run in after install procedure, which is a pain. They were Nitro gears. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk

    Hey Deb...[emoji3] Here is a link to a few videos I have of you. https://photos.app.goo.gl/ueK6ZWq5WwrmCM9p9 Yeah I don't know about if it's an oil problem. Either way it's bad luck on my part. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  17. Broken Ring Gear Teeth

    Transmissions / Transfer Cases / Traction Aids
    I'm curious as to what you gear guys think caused this. So I was lubricating my driveshaft, slip yoke and u-joints. Drove my FJ for a few miles at 65mph. I heard a very faint thumping sound and I thought it was a broken belt inside one of the rear tires. Next day I was driving to work and the...
