    They look great!!! I may be slightly jealous of these rims... Nice clean look. You're gonna like those tires, I had them in a previous life.

    2007 4.7 V8...tried the timing belt myself,.got to belt everything lined up(lines on

    cams and oil pulley to the "l" and white dot) , clockwise to 50 degrees (did not rotate back to "l" position ) .. changed

    belt, didn't mark new one just lined up the factory lines with the marks on cams/

    oil pulley (I did mark old belt with R cam "l", if that helps any) put tensioner and

    hand cranked until the factory markings on the belt came around 4 times (1/2

    ratchet proper socket with spark plugs in, felt a little resistance but I figured it

    was compression and just turning a V8 but hand)


    And that's where I left it...I have one more day off work and would really appreciate any advice on this.

    Did I f*** my car up? because I didn't return it to 0* before taking off old belt?
    Is there a way to address the issue if so?

    Thanks in advance!!

    I have a thread started... ain't tryna steal this awesome thread, I'm just lost at this point.

    2005 4Runner SR5 4x2
    I have a 2005 SR5 4x2 that has been solid since new with no problem and no need for any repair--not even oil change. I am about to go on a road trip, so I decided to do some maintenance. Thanks to the information I found on this forum and other places on the web. After extensive research, I decided to replace the engine oil and transmission fluid.

    First, I was going to change the engine oil but I couldn't find the stick to check its level inside the oil cap. So I decided to wait and do it later. Maybe after my cross country road trip.

    Next, I saw a dipstick on the other side of the engine compartment, so that must be the dipstick for the transmission. The transmission fluid must be really low because all I could see is a little black tar at the tip of the dipstick. So instead of replacing the transmission fluid, I just topped it off with 2.5 quarts. It was very tough pouring the transmission fluid through that narrow tube. Why would any one design the car that way? I thought Toyota engineers are better than that. Anyway, it was finally done and I have some transmission fluid left, so I used it to top up the brake fluid reservoir because I heard that the two fluids are interchangeable.















    Finally, I woke up. And I am so glad that no such things were actually done to my newly acquired 4Runner :)

    Bout to say, you're either trolling, or just have no clue. Glad you're neither.

    And if your coolant & windshield washer fluids are low, bovine urine does the trick.

    How are those LED's as far as range? Would you say they are pretty close to a standard driving light? I know short range they are likely much brighter but down the road is what I'm asking about.
