Ok, thanks to another member, I realized I had a leak in trans cooling lines, see attached. Ordered new ones from local car parts store. Take everything apart, no joy. Not long enough, brackets don't even line up. Called local parts store back, very helpful, bur even they can not find a longer line with the extra bend on drivers side. Called local Toyota dealer, parts guy couldn't be bothered!!!

G'Day
The OE part number you need is 32907-60300
I would not trust the auto parts store matching the part to the correct one.
They may have given you the 07-09 pipe or something totally different.
Your transmission is too important and expensive to replace with an almost right / close enough - call it good part....
Stick with OE for this and save yourself a world of pain

I'll second Baz's observation. Something aftermarket has been added to your FJ, what are those supports doing there? The previous owner bent the lines so they would fit, that's why you're experiencing issues. No way would Toyota design the tubes to bend down, up, then back down. :lol:

I think you probably have the right part.

I think that mite me a 100 series LC . ? But i am just guessing .

Edit . well you made me get off my fat butt and go look at my old bumper and it looks the same as yours so it at least has a FJ bumper . I agree i have never seen a Green Fan .

2010 TT I've not changed any of that stuff. As you can see with me holding the passenger side bracket up, the new one is more than a few inches short.

slow down guys. Just walked out to my garage and looked at my FJ (2010) base model that I bought brand new in Colorado. Everything the OP is showing looks EXACTLY like mine including green fan mount, radiator supports, bending of tubes, etc.

Original poster just needs to order the OEM stuff and return the part to his auto parts store. My only guess would be they changed it up starting with the '10+ models and the new motor with oil filter mount on the bottom. They probably ordered him the 07-09 stuff.

Still trying to find the longer curved lines... when I do the flush, am I using the passenger side, lower metal line to drain the trans fluid?

Not really appreciating your post in this thread: https://www.fjcruiserforums.com/forums/transmissions-transfer-cases-traction-aids/731404-replacing-trans-cooler-lines.html

A number of us took time to look up part numbers, go out and look under FJs trying to match up with your pictures. I looked thru your posts trying to find out what year your FJ was and where you were located. It does make a difference. Trying to figure out what you have and your location is where a lot of the confusion came from. Personally I didn't go out and look under the FJ, been raining.

To me the existing lines don't look right, Toyota does a pretty clean job of routing lines etc. I would have guessed you were in the North East due to all the rust.

I was trying to find the correct post about the trans fluid change. Here's a Google link on the subject. Some members like to do a complete flush, Toyota recommends a drain and fill. I had the dealer do mine because at the time I didn't have a way of monitoring the trans temp or crawling around under the FJ. There are drain and fill ports on the transmission and having the trans fluid at the correct temp when you check is important.

The Google search gives videos on changing the trans fluid.

And the help is appreciated!!! Researching part numbers has been a huge assistance. I think I've found one on ebay. Dealership wants to sell me the short one as well. Something is different....

Not quite sure what the problem or issue is with getting the right parts. @Lee44 linked to Cool Springs Toyota but included 2013 parts schematic. Its as easy as changing the year and then finding the parts.

You said you have a 2010 FJ. Here is the parts schematic from Cool Springs Toyota. Not sure all the parts of the transmission cooler lines you are looking to replace but from the picture you included it appears you want to replace item #8 which if you look in the referenced list to the schematic shows:

https://parts.toyotaofcoolsprings.com/v-2010-toyota-fj-cruiser--base--4-0l-v6-gas/cooling-system--trans-oil-cooler-lines

Oil Cooler tube part # 32907-60301. List Price = $82.86 and discounted online price from Cool Springs Toyota of $57.79.

You can order direct from them the OEM part or you can order from plenty of other online OEM Toyota parts suppliers, or you can get from your local Toyota dealer and try to get them to come close to the online OEM part price. I never have luck with my local dealer getting them down to the online parts price, but you might be successful.

The internet has made OEM parts ordering the easiest thing ever. Used to be you would have to go to dealer and they would look up in their catalog and then they would special order (and you would be stuck with whatever price they gave you). Now, you can look up part number and google it and find the lowest cost provider.

Not sure why you are messing around with getting it on Ebay unless you are finding the lowest price on OEM parts there (which is possible).
