    Re: ball joints (4WD)

    Update on the Energy Suspension 13026 ball joint boots, I peeled them back and found that water was getting in. I ordered the genuine Toyota part 43324-26020 from Partsouq in the United Arab...
  2. Re: Does 195 psi in all 4 cylinders mean engine was rebuilt? 220k on the van

    195 seems suspiciously high; I think even a new engine of this type would typically be more like 185. Was the engine warm when it was checked? My van's compression (with 280+ miles on original...

    Re: ball joints (4WD)

    For those looking for just the upper ball joint boot, I deducted that the part number is 43324-26020. Toyotapartsdeal.com let me order them but got the sadly familiar response the next day that they...

    Re: ball joints (4WD)

    I wanted to post a review of the Febest upper control arms. They've held up to some rough off-roading despite their flimsy appearance (compared to OEM) but after 2 years and 12,000 miles I noticed...
  5. Re: Other parts to replace while replacing Head Gasket

    Those are good numbers, especially for an old van. If you passed the chemical test and have good compression like that, I'd say you can rule out head gasket issues for now.

  10. Re: Other parts to replace while replacing Head Gasket

    The injectors and leaking coolant hoses should be totally unrelated to a suspected head gasket issue. I would question the mechanic's results. All you know is that there is a pressure leak, but it...
