Question about Toyota Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

How do I install a freeze plug (the manufacturer of the freeze plug is Zerostart) on my 2008 Scion XB, Toyota engine 2AZ-FE? Some idea of the procedure would help.

According to the manufacturer of the freeze plug, the socket that the plug should be inserted into is in the left rear of the engine (left rear assuming you are in the driver's seat looking towards the front of the car). It's hard to say exactly, but I don't think the freeze plug socket is accessible from the top of the engine. I believe I have to jack the front end up, remove the left engine under cover(s), and look for the socket from underneath. If anyone has access to the official Scion/Toyota procedure manual and can explain how to get access to the freeze plug socket, I will be way ahead. Cheers & thanks, Mr_Liss

    The guide doesn't say a lot, except that the location of the plug socket is 'LR'. I wonder if this is above or below the exhaust manifold. I'm thinking below, because I couldn't see anything appropriate above the manifold.

Remote starter only allows my starter to turn over twice; needs at least 3 with my key. How to adjust to have it starter run longer on remote?


I know you are looking to have the remote starter run a third time but I would say you need to look at your Fuel Pressure Regulator on the Scion. Sounds like it is not holding fuel pressure at the fuel rail and that is why it requires a third Crank

How do i change wheel hub assembly on scion xb?


You need an impact wrench and large socket to get the spindle nut off, also some use star pattern bolts to hold on the hub. Will require a torque wrench also for re install. Some models require separating the ball joints too, a spreader is helpful. Not a job for anyone without good tools and a good bit of mechanic experience.
