  1. You cant clean the exhaust even pro cant, as u change the mufler or the resonator part when its faulty. Usually exhaust is good for vehicle life for 10+ years. So dont baby ur FJC and keep enjoying.
  2. Try with Majelan, Divya, Hamadi in shj bm road, they stock up lot of original parts for Toyota.
  3. Low gear lever may be jammed with some sand or something. Get it open and change its lever rubber boot from underneath. If not check gear solenoid responsible for shifting to lo gear thru electronics.
  4. If u see any visible leak or leak marks in green color in engine bay near radiator hoses or engine then u have some leak, find it and fix it. If u cant find it then its BIG PROBLEM, your head gasket is blown and radiator is getting mixed with oil and getting consumed in engine. Its a big issue and you can visually see the white smoke too with power loss sign as well. get this fix ASAP.
  5. No its not, it got fixed in 2009 model, only 07 and 08 was having that poor build quality of front fenders. Nothing bad for 2009, just u need to know which wires to plug out for stability control so that you can actually play in desert, otherwise it will keep braking and make u frustrated.
  6. Landrover discovery has same same isue more, LC never heard. strange.
  7. A timing belt controls the timing of the engine's valves. When a timing belt snaps, certain types of engines can be ruined. It is best to replace the timing belt when you have reached the number of miles your car manual recommends for a replacement, or when you see some symptoms signaling that the timing belt is going bad. There are two different types of engines: interference and non-interference. If a timing belt snaps or slips on an interference engine, the engine will be badly damaged costing a small fortune in repairs. If a timing belt snaps on a non-interference engine, the engine will be damaged but will not cost as much in repairs as an interference engine. Timing Belt vs. Timing Chain 1. Some cars come with a timing belt, but some come with a timing chain. A timing belt is made of rubber and is more apt to break than a timing chain. Some car makers recommend changing the timing belt every 120,000 km, while timing chains typically last the life of the car unless symptoms arise. Refer to your car manual to check the recommended mileage for changing your timing belt. Excessive Exhaust 2. If your car fires more than a typical amount of exhaust, your timing belt could be worn out. Difficult to Start 3. If your car has high mileage and is difficult to start, the timing belt could be going bad. Leaky Engine 4. Older rubber timing belts degrade in hot temperatures and with exposure to motor oil. If your car runs hot and has a leaky engine, the life expectancy of your timing belt is lowered. Newer timing belts are made of heat-resistant materials and do not have this problem. Shakes 5. A working timing belt is perfectly timed with the valves and pistons. If the belt is going bad, the timing will be off, causing the car to shake.
  8. My prado VX cool box is not working. Its only blowing air but no cooling. Does that also use same gas as AC (R134a) so that i can get it topped up by iranian ac guys in shj? or does it use some special gas?
