  1. 4Runner 3rd Generation (1996-2002)
    Hey all, I recently bought a 2001 4Runner SR5 (2wd) last november, and it's finally time to give it some much-needed TLC... For context, this is a 5VZ-FE engine with ~260k miles on her. I have only done multiple oil changes and automatic transmission drain & fills since owning this car. I...

  5. Highlander 1st Generation (2001-2007)
    My 2001 HL has a slight shake in the steering wheel. It started in December with a shake in the steering wheel typically around 65/70 mph, but it wasn’t always. When I rotated the tires, the shake became more pronounced, so I rotated them back. I got the tires rebalanced to see if that was the...

    I'm the 2nd owner of Camry 2002 V6 XLE with 67k miles. The timing belt/water pump has never been replaced. I was checking and wanted to find the correct kit for repair.

    Hey all, I'm new to the forum. I own a 1999 Camry 2.2 L with about 140,000 miles and recently had the water pump fail while on the interstate.
