Question about Toyota Land Cruiser

1 Answer

Have 1997 80 series cruiser,leaking oil between gear box and transfer box at the joint that aligns with the gear box rubber mounts,box has we assume been removed before as different sealant has been used as to the type toyota uses,this sealant has let go and this is the problem.have made several enquiries to toyota workshops for prices etc all say that complete removal is necisary to seperate boxes to allow new sealant to be applied,which may take from 8-12hrs a reasonable expense for a little sealant.hope this makes some sense for you and do you go along with this reckoning as to time fixing etc could you shine some light on this for me? thanks regards Lyndsay

Yes, they would be correct that the whole thing would need to be removed. That is the way these things are. In order for it to be done right, they will have to clean off the old stuff and put on the new seal which requires complete separation of the parts that the leak is between which requires the labor time mentioned above to perform. Unless you have worked on a lot of cars, I would not recommend that you try fixing this as you would need to know torque specifications and have equipment to safely remove the parts that the shop will have to do. Sorry that it is this way, if you have any other questions, let me know and I would be happy to answer them.

Bad gas? or maybe fuel filter?


check engine mounts especially the rear box mount because under high torque situations (1-2) gears there may be mis-alignment of the drive shaft occurring and the vibration is from "U" joints behind the gear box getting out of alignment and phase angle.. Check slip joints for lubrication and wear.

Leaking Transfer Case


most Gear boxes with transfer cases have an oil seal between the main gear box and the transfer case so that the oil from the box is not passed through to the transfer case causing it to over fill. If there only a few spots under the car you have time to find exactly where the leak is. May be only an output shaft seal. Check the level of the gear box and transfer case your self It will be level with the filler plug. The oil used is either sae80-90 or oep 80-90. Check manufactures specs on this. If it turns out to be the seal between the two boxes then it will require the unit removal for seal replacement.

Steering gear oil leak


I don't see how that could happen, without being in an accident

Of coarse,as soon as the rack leaks, you replace it

On a frame mounted steering box just the bottom seal leaks
& you have to remove & rebuild

If you have a damaged steering rack you have other possible
suspension damage

I would go to an alignment only shop,not some chain store
in the mall

Numerous issues with my 95 Jeep Grand Cherokee Loredo


The oil leaks, just keep the levels full. The engine mounts, unless they are torn apart, let them ride. The front axles, let them ride, its going to cost the same now or later, they need to be replaced. I would FIX the coolant leak. ASAP. once you overheat or do damage to the engine, the whole truck is scrap.

I cant seem to find where to top up the gearbox oil on my 83 land cruiser


I dont believe thatford ********, ---get under the cruiser half way along the gear box on the left hand side you will find a bung plug 1/2way up the gearbox that is your filler and oil just dribbleing out that hole is the level.----at the back of the gearbox but attatghed to it is the transfer case this is made of aluminium,at the back of this slight y to the left about 1/2 way up is another bung that is the filler for the transfer case and also the level ,NOW LISTEN GOOD if you havea hose conecting the gearbox ******** to the transfer ******** thats good it just means the previos owner ,.or one of them had their head screwed on . W hat happens is this, strange as it seems the transfer case oil gets forced up into the gearbox,with the end result that the gearbox gets over full and the transfer gets low on oil,what we have been doing for many years is putting a bypass hose between the two fillers and as the oil gets forced up into the gear box it gravity feeds back down into the transfer case,,,so if you cant find the bungs but you have that hose you now know what it is all about, -------please let me know if that solves your problem, I know I am right but it is nice to be told

Whats the best way to drop the gearbox & transfer case?


remove the carpet on the floor, remove the gear shift lever as well as the 4wd shift lever, remove the drive shaft (both) remove the bell housing bolts, remove the starter, place a hydraulic lift jack below the gear box , then remove the wiring connectors , then remove the cross member , then pull the gearbox out from its positin, drop the gearbox very carefully, when gearbox is on the floor, make sure its sittin on a up right position so it dose not spoil any of the elctric connectors especially the reverse light switch...(that seems to be the easiest way to remove a manual land cruiser gearbox) hope that wil help....
