Today I replaced the radiator on my 2005. At 204K, the upper radiator tank busted spewing all my fairly new coolant all over the engine bay. Luckily my wife realized the issue and stopped driving it after informing me.

Today I replaced the following:

Radiator with a Denso aftermarket
Radiator Cap with OEM Toyota/NipponDenso
Upper Radiator Hose with Gates Replacement Hose
Lower Radiator Hose with OEM Toyota Hose
Coolant with Pentofrost A1 Concentrate.

I will try to snap a pic of the old radiator tomorrow.

Did oil change and tire rotation. Used Quaker State Ultimate Durability 5W30 and a Fram Ultra XG3600.

Also found my valve cover gaskets are leaking a bit. Will be doing the valve cover gaskets and rear shocks soon.

Did a much needed exterior car wash. Also ordered the valve cover gasket set (Victor Reinz from Rockauto), glove box light (74 bulb from SuperbrightLEDS), and 5 "Cool White" Homelink button lights (NEO4-CHP from SuperbrightLEDS). I still need to replace all 4 struts/shocks and retint the windows here soon.

Replaced all 5 homelink bulbs and the glovebox bulb with cool white colored LEDs from Super Bright LEDs.

I'm very happy with the results.

Now I just need to replace my valve cover gaskets, shocks, and redo the tint.

Replaced my valve cover gaskets, tube seals, and grommets, and resealed the half moons. All the rubber stuff was rock hard and broke into pieces during removal. Used a made in Japan Victor Reinz gasket kit I'm 90% sure is the same as the Toyota kit as even the grommets were the same color as OEM.

This also gave me an opportunity to get a look at the engine under the valve covers. I was very impressed with the cleanliness of the 200K mile engine. Additionally there is a clear indication that swapping to synthetic oil is cleaning the engine. I could clearly see the areas that were cleaned and getting cleaned from old varnish/deposits.

Currently having an affair with my wife's brakes

no more needs to be said... so the left rear disc pads ate the rotor. This week, I have learned where the backing nut is, and the rotor is off. Reassembling one parking brake retaining spring that I popped off, and I should have it back running again.

Once I go get my mower, I'll then do the other three wheels. Using Bosch Quiet Cast rotors, lifetime guarantee from o-reilly's and they are noticeably thicker and heavier than what is on the vehicle now.

Replaced the ignition lock cylinder with an OEM part from Amazon. Now, I'm waiting for those with the know-how to inform me how to program the new key transponders which came with the new lock cylinder.

Well I had the souble doozy hatch issue on my 01. Hatch won't open and window wouldn't roll down. Bought it used this way, had the hatch handle replaced once and it lasted for 3 months. Had popped off the high trim pieces on the interior of the hatch but stalled trying to figure out how to get the big panel off. Today I tackled it and some bent nose pliers did the trick for popping the bottom off first then worig around the edges, finally lightly getting the the weatherstripping and bit from beside to window. I had been watching lots of videos and reading forums about the window and hatch issue and as soon as I removed the metal panel, took off that stupid ebrake mechanism, and liquid wrenched the parts inside the window mechanism, the window went right down. Now...the door. Pulled on the cable-nothing. Got my head lamp out and hosed the interior of the actuator(?) by pulling the cable out enough to get the straw inside, let it sit for a few minutes, lubed it again, hit it with a wrench a couple times (you never know), then pulled the cable again and the door popped open. The actuator doohickey definitely is getting replaced with an aftermarket upgrade since it won't latch now, and I'll put in a aftermarket metal before replacing it with the same crappy plastic dealership parts. Bungees will hold her closed until then. So stoked I didn't need to go redneck style, and saved a bunch of dough doing it myself.

New tires
New rear rotors and pads.

I have a long list of regular maintenance to do in the next few weeks so I may be updating this thread quite often.
