I got my license during the summer of 2008. Need I say more? I remember taking the bus to the DMV, exchanging my permit for a driver's license, then taking the bus back home.

Don't let the magic smoke out of the ECU. If you do that it'll never work again.

The truck runs, right? Don't rule out the possibility that you might just have a dead LED in the ECU. If you can...

I wouldn't rule out the computer just yet. Check the powers and grounds for it first. You'll need a copy of the FSM for the wiring diagrams.

The 1348 is a super common size as well. A lot of Toyota engines use that filter and you pick them up by the case for ~$50 when NAPA has their filter sales.

Just FYI...it's hard to find a...

Honda makes an excellent V6. It's just a shame that their transmissions don't hold up. That's usually what does those in. If you haven't already, I'd get all new (OE Honda) fluid in there and add the...

Echoing what has been said above, I'd run a separate (fused) power to it straight from the battery. I don't think the compressor clutch circuit would be robust enough to power a fan. It would be fine...

Dude, if you've dropped the transmission in a Subaru before you got this. Been there, done that. The last time I did a clutch in one of those (early 2000s outback) I elected to pull the engine...

Correct, that vent tube is there to keep pressure from building up inside the transmission case and forcing fluid past the seals. Same reason the engine has a PCV valve. The fluid isn't pressurized...

It's probably the little pilot bearing between the input and output shafts. Over the summer I spent some time wrenching on a '94 pathfinder with similar noises coming from the transmission. It's...

Transparts warehouse is generally a good place to get parts for these. They aren't too difficult to rebuild, but you will need a shop press and a couple of pullers. And some pieces of pipe for going...

Glad you found the leak. I hope it's not like the truck engines where the timing belt has to come off to replace it.

Another thing you should check is the transmission dipstick. Just to make sure the transmission fluid doesn't look like a strawberry milkshake. If it does, well, there's your leak.

And also,...

Does it have rear heat? You might follow the lines back to the rear heater core with the system pressurized and see if you can find anything. That's a source of leaks that's commonly overlooked on...

I'd make sure the slave is actually doing its thing like it's supposed to. Does the clutch pedal stiffen up after pumping it a few times? I had a car that experienced a similar problem, the seal...

C4 is an old school 3 speed. You're probably thinking of the AOD or A4LD. It makes sense for swaps because it's a modern overdrive transmission but doesn't use a computer to control the shifts.

Why not put some sandbags in the bed? You can use a couple of 2x6s to built a frame that will keep them centered over the rear axle.

No need to buy anything other than the cheap green stuff. FWIW, mixing green antifreeze with the Toyota red/pink coolant won't cause it to gel, you'll just have this ugly brown antifreeze. It's still...
