SOURCE: we are putting a clutch

Hi. Welcome to FixYa. I will do my best to assist you, with the hopes that you will award me with a FixYa rating for my assistance.

What I do, in my service department, is to pull the transmission and the transfer case as on unit. It is faster, and much simpler. There is no reason to pull them separately. That is way too much work.

I hope that this helps you out.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance.

SOURCE: 4X4 not working

You should first check the 4WD actuator it is located on your front axle it has two wires going to it most of these are cylindrical and 3 to 4 inches long by two inches in diameter. Check by shifting in to 4h driving a few feet and lifting both front tires off the ground. Make shore to use good jack stands or blocks as you will have to get under the truck. Chek to see if actuator is working by rotating one tire if the other tire rotates the opposite way as the tire you are turning the actuator is working. if not change actuator if the actuator is good check the front drive shaft there is a spline on the drive shaft that can ware out and will slip. The transfer case could also be the problem but it is not common. over full transfer case would not cause the problem.

SOURCE: replace front brake pad 2003 toyota 4 runner

Diagram is unnecessry.
Pull both front wheels
Work one at a time leaving the other for reference
Find the retention spring ... its a paperclip thickness wire spring... dislodge center retention loop and undo from both ends which engage brake pad retention rods.
Pull the rods out
Pull the old pads out... laying everything on the ground
Use scrap wooden wedges to pry between the rotor and the caliper ...inside and out until the calipers are fully withdrawn. Use the new pads to measure if they are far enough back.
Note... the brake fluid will have dropped in the master cylinder over many months of wear... do not fill it. When the calipers are pushed back they will fill the reservoir again... one wheel at a time.
Be sure to identify the correct pad based on what you took out and what is on the other side (if you screwed up the layout)
Make sure to take the old antisqueek backing plate from the old pad and place it on the new pad. They don't use lubricant on these anymore.
Replace the pads... the retention rods... then the retention spring
Do the other side
Then progressively step on the brake peddle until full tension is felt
Check the master cylinder reservoir... probably needs no additional fluid.
New pads will register in existing ridges in each disc in no time at all.
You should check the discs to see if they need to be replaced during this operation...using some calipers

SOURCE: 2007 Toyota 4 runner transmission filter and fluid change??

at 50,000 miles there is really no need. i would wait and save up that money and do a transmission flush 7- 10 quarts of toyota f-type fluid can be costly but a flush removes all of the fluid and garnish along with any fine shavings (normal wear and tear) out of the tranny and replaces it with new clean fluid. normal intervals would be at about 80-100,000 miles. you should be able to find preventative maintenance schedules in your owners manual. if not any repair facility would have it on their computer.

SOURCE: water leak under the intake manifold,1995 toyota 4 runner

There is a heater core bypass pipe that runs from the block (under the manifold) to the bacl of theengine where you will see a flat rectangular "sheet metal" thing with a pipe coming out of it. The a rubber hose connects. You need to pull the top air plenums and intake to get to it. The p[ipe flange bolts to the block with silicone rtv as a sealant.

I have Toyota 1994 4x4 four runner auto trans fluid leaking in to transfer case out vent on top transfer case easiest way to fix it

Auto transmission is a rather specialised branch of motor engineering and requires a very high level of precision and cleanliness. The easiest way of fixing it depends on your level of experience and expertise and the facilities that are available to you.

If the transfer case will unbolt and slide out the seal replacement will be fairly straightforward but if either the transfer box or the auto must be dismantled to separate them it is a different game altogether and removing the assembly must be a desirable option.

There is a further consideration, which is what has happened to the seal and why. A seal that is running in a clean and well-lubricated environment is unlikely to fail and the wearing process is likely to be very slow and leaks, if at all, will be small.
It is possible therefore the seal has failed because of a pressure or an excess of oil being thrown at it inside the transmission or because the shaft has become out of true or a foreign body has damaged it.

It would seem you need not only model-specific repair information but also the advice of a transmission specialist.

Good luck!
