  1. Eggsandwich's O2 build

    Thanks FJTest...I guess I just didn't want to hear the truth about actual MPG. I told my colleague the other day I was getting 12-14 mpg and he said "welcome to truck driving!" Probably sums it up. I tried driving keeping the revs below 2000 and it was quite possible...only jumps above 2k when...

    For the plugs, I've watched plenty of videos and I do have a torque wrench...I worked out the other night that I am getting only about 14 mpg albeit almost 90% in town driving...so I was wondering if changing the spark plugs might help. I saw some plugs advertised as being good for fuel...

    Hi FJTest...I cleaned the MAF sensor (it looked pretty clean actually), and also added the fuel injection cleaner at my next gas refill. 2 follow up questions about the other recommended changes: 1) for the transmission fluid flush, I've looked at a lot of videos now on how to do that, and...

    Thanks so much for this advice...a lot of homework to do there but all very tasty. In your opinion do you think a lot of this can be done in my own garage, or should some of this NOT be done by a novice? Thanks again!

  12. TRD Skid Plate problem

    4x4 / Off-Road Tech
    I installed a TRD skid plate on mine a few weeks ago...I read all the posts about the rear bolts being too long so I went to Home Depot to get some shorter ones to get prepared...in the end I didn't need them. I read that if you have rust or corrosion the bolts might be tight, but can go through...

    Loving my new FJ and going mod crazy! This car drives makes you want to tinker with it, like no other... All cosmetic so far...but I'm keen to understand how the mechanical parts work so that I can make sure all the mechanics are working well! Roll on month 2!!! Month 1! 1. Blacked out...
  14. HEPA Cabin Air Filter that fits FJ?

    Maintenance Tech
    Has anyone found a size of HEPA filter for the cabin that fits the FJ? I took Amazon's advice / and that of BOSCH and ordered a "6029C HEPA Cabin Air Filter", but it was too tall and wide. It didn't fit!:flame: *** This is the one that didn't fit, that Amazon told me fits my FJ: "Bosch 6029C...
  15. Rust down below - serious?

    General Discussion
    That's a great method - very thorough. I was not able to lift my car, so I was wriggling underneath waving a spray can. Not ideal! But I figure it's better than nothing, and I don't think my rust is too bad.
  16. Rust down below - serious?

    General Discussion
    Your before and after photos look unreal - how did you apply the Por-15? Did you brush it on? Not sure how you got such even coverage! I used Stabil...managed this before/after: Definitely better, but not as dramatic as yours!
  17. Rolled your FJ? How did it fare? - share pics!

    General Discussion
    I was driving today and saw this upturned Tacoma....seemed like the driver was ok but made me wonder about the strength of the FJ when it's rolled... Can anyone share any "rolled my FJ" experiences?
  18. ROTATE TIRES yourself? Balance & align?

    Maintenance Tech
    I took my FJ to a dealership this morning since I had to buy a new 5th Yokohama tire because the spare on my back door was a Bridgestone! (Why didn't I check when I bought the car???!!:flame:) So I had to take it in for that wheel to be mounted. Printed out the rearward cross 5 wheel rotation...
  19. Leak below my FJ...water? fuel? oil?

    Maintenance Tech
    Kinda like maple syrup.
  20. Spare Tire Bike Racks?

    Interior / Exterior Visual Tech
    I see you have one bike on it...have you mounted 2? Is that too much weight for the door? 1 tire + 2 bikes?
