I am pretty sure you can buy a small house in some parts of the country for less than a new Tacoma costs. Used Toyota trucks are also stupidly overpriced for what they are. And I say that as someone...

Yep, the toughest part by far is the upper starter bolt. Get that one out of the way first. There are a couple of ways to get to it. Either go through the wheel well with a long socket extension and...

Dang, that's cheap for one of those power stations. I've thought about making a crude one before using a deep cycle battery but I don't think I could do it for less than $170.

Scifi...I think...

Most of the lines are 5/32" or 4mm. Some of the bigger ones like the charcoal canister are 5/16" or 8mm. 20ft sounds about right, I went through 2 rolls of it when I did all mine.

I've always wondered if KA24E valve cover bolts would work. They are also shouldered like the Z24 bolts but use a 10mm head instead.

That's pretty bad. What's it out of? I've never seen one actually break the valve off.

I like these ones. Cheap, bright, USB rechargeable and seem to hold up well. And it takes a standard 18650 battery should you ever need to replace it.

That's the PCV baffle. The PCV valve threads into it and should be replaced at the same time since it'll never be easier. You can spray some carb cleaner in there to clean it out. I think it's...

I mean, both have poorly designed engines and rampant timing chain/vvt problems.

I've lost count of how many Rockauto magnets I have. A few dozen at least. I didn't know AutohausAZ carried parts for Japanese vehicles. I'd always thought of them as catering more to German vehicle...

Personally I would only use the OE parts in this application. It's fine to cheap out on other things as long as they're easy to get to and you're okay with having to replace them again someday. I...

The Beck/Arnley and OSK kits are one and the same. Don't bother with any cheap off brand ones. I bought one on Amazon a few years ago but it doesn't appear that they sell them anymore. Also get an...

HF sells quite a few things that are absolutely fantastic for the price. Their basic steel floor jacks come to mind.

All of the bolts except for the head bolts are fine to re-use. The thing about the rod bearings is it's not as simple as just putting new ones in. If there's any damage to the surfaces on the...

Cut the oil filter open and look for glitter. I'd be on the lookout for another engine, or at least know where to get one and how much you can expect to pay. Also keep in mind that any engine you buy...

The E pistons are just a big dish but the DE pistons have reliefs for the valves. I believe. It's been 5+ years since I had the head off one of these. For the DE it looks like you can get pistons in...
