    Hi everyone, I purchased my FJ cruiser about 5 months ago with just below 100k miles (~154000 kms) on the clock. As far as I know, the engine looks fine. I.e, no smoke or anything like that comes out of the exhaust, no build up oil on oil cap, no leak, no sounds, no vibrations, nothing...

    I've noticed this happening for maybe a month now, when I remove my foot from the brake pedal, my FJ kind of "hiccups" and lurches forward a small distance. It feels like something on the bottom is jerking, and I notice it most when the AC is running. Also, I had my AC recharged back in June...

    Hello. Recently my 07 AT FJ started to make a metallic sound when starting, I ignored it and it became constant with the driving, I thought it might be that the lifter valves were dry so I checked the engine oil level and it (inexplicably) ran out of oil. I added 4qts more of oil and continued...

    Hey I was just wheeling with my buddies in my 2012 fj and I got a feeling I should look under my car and I find a whole lot of oil around the oil pan and on the transmission fluid pan. Haven’t found oil anywhere else. Can someone help me identify the problem or has had the problem before?

    Long story short, I hydrolocked my engine and I’m now in the market for a new engine as this one is not rebuildable.. It’s a 2010, and I can find engines for it on car-part, but the price for them is Considerably higher than say a 2010 4Runner or Tacoma, is it possible to swap a 4Runner or...
