    Hey everyone, quick question. I drive an '07 FJ with 286k miles on it and it has given me very few issues (the main thing is the tranny shutter between 2nd and 3rd at low RPMs, mostly fixed with new sparkies and coils). However, I'm considering flushing the transmission fluid this summer. I was...

    Hello everyone. I own a 2008 FJC, purchased in 2014. It is 4x4. I now have 202,000 miles and have been getting an occasional transmission shudder. I foolishly trusted the Toyota statement about the transmission being sealed and not needing service. I have a lot of experience off-roading and...
