Thanks. Assuming the information could be, if necessary, modified here and a sticky based on.

Sticky status votes? All say "aye".

Hey thanks! You're a lifesaver! I can delay paying for a subscription to the TIS for all that info! What years does this cover? Especially the oil filter torque specs since Toyota changed the filter type in the newer FJ's.:rocker:

Great thread, it gets my vote to be a 'sticky' :clap: To get torque specs I've been using the FJ Repair Manual which has 843 pages to filter through to find torque specs. This thread definitely simplifies and saves a lot of searching time, much appreciated for posting. :cheers:

Why is there such varying recommendations or information about the gear oils?

On the one hand there is a TSB that says Toyota currently recommends 75W85 GL5. Correct? Then right after that there are members recommending/using/quoting 75W90. WTF? If Toyota is recommending (and using) 75-85 why would someone recommend 75-90?

And the 80-90 for rear diff? Where does that come from? There's a whole bunch of other threads quoting 75-90 GL5.

There is a difference between 75-85, 75-90 and 80-90. More than some might think.

Is there a thread or post that has the difinitive information from Toyota or other reputable/reliable source for what the weight should be in the gear oils for the FJs? Since the OP says none of this info has been verified at all it seems kinda useless (ie - whether it is right or not).

To add to this list :

5AT, Automatic transmission (A750F) :

Trans. Pan DRAIN Plug : 15 ft/lbs (metal crush washer)
Trans. Pan CHECK Plug : 21 ft/lbs (metal crush washer)
Transmission FILL Plug : 29 ft/lbs (rubber O-ring on FiLL plug).

Pardon me if this is already covered:
Should the first post be updated to show the correct oil capacity for the 2010+ FJ`s?
6.0 qts. without filter
6.4 qts with filter change.
and correct grade of 0W20...

You tell em' Pale...:lol: 2010+ Represent!!!

So the actual Axle Nut torque should be - Crapload ft/lbs (think 186 ft/lbs)... Yet when I removed mine from the factory setting... barely had 50 ft/lbs on it. Broke it with a 12" long breaker bar and one hand...

Toyota needs to feed their techs some Wheaties... :lol: :rofl:

when you mentioned that, I found this:
Front axle hub nut x Front drive shaft 174ft*lbs.

man, I`d hate to read about a dude doing an oil service on a newer FJ and only adding 5+ quarts... yikes...:cheers:
