I don't recommend driving it further; you risk packing up the cooling system if oil makes its way there. You might want to invest in some quick tests before you buy anything: You need to confirm if there is loss of coolant through the engine A few options here: perform a compression test to see if a head gasket or cylinder head is compromised perform a ...

The 3.3(?) from the Nissan wouldn't fit, it's mounted longitudinal, where as the Toyota engine is transverse. You'd have to either lengthen the front clip or find a way to mount the Nissan engine to the Toyota transmission. Not including other mounting and electrical issues. In short it'd be cheaper to buy a used Toyota engine assuming it's either a 3.0 or ...

Did you just try to pump the brakes up several times? When you compress the caliper, this leaves a gap between the brake pads and the rotor. If it didn't, it would be very hard to get the new pads/caliper back onto the rotor. So, when you first get behind the wheel, you need to pump the brakes several times to get the caliper piston to the point it is ...

I could not get any junkyard to reply to my inquiry. I contacted the parts department directly at the dealership and they were able to order it at a reasonable price.

If I assume that this is a manual transmission, then what you describe is classic symptoms of the clutch slipping. This means that either the friction plate is excessively worn or the pressure plate is weak. If it is an automatic transmission, then it may be due to low fluid, which may well lead to more serious problems. Either way this will need to be ...

I couldn't tell you for sure (I've never done the swap), but they should be basically the same engine. According to this Wiki article, the Lexus ES300 & RX300, plus the Toyota Avalon & Highlander used the same engine, which is the 1MZ-FE 3.0L engine with VVT-i. If the cover you are talking about is different, you should be able to swap it out. ...

There are three different engines offered for the Highlander & Camry which are the 3.0L V6. All three are of the 1MZ-FE model. It appears one version of the engine was used from 1994-2006 in the Camry. It produced 168–190 hp @ 5200–5400 rpm with 183–193 lb·ft of torque at 4400 rpm. Wikipedia says: Horsepower ratings dropped after the Society of ...

Did you open the bleeders for any reason? Have you tried bleeding the brakes? Are you sure there's no tear in the caliper boot? If they worked fine before the brake job, it would have to be something that happened during the procedure. ABS sensor seems unlikely to be the cause of your problem. Most likely air in the brake lines.

You will need the workshop manual AND the correct wiring diagram for the car to be able to ascertain the connectors and their respective functions...

I have found a few things that can cause this issue. If the anti rattle springs/ shims are worn or rusted the brake pad can shift forward when the brake is applied. Worn or loose caliper slides can allow the caliper to rock when the pad squeeze the rotor.

Pretty vague question, so this is a pretty vague answer. Having gotten wet, there could be nearly anything wrong. You are going to have to go thru the entire navigation system, component by component, to find the failure. Not knowing the extent of the water damage makes it impossible for us to know where to start. If the storm was strong enough to blow ...

Try and pull the spark plugs. I'm suspecting that much oil burning cooked and covered the plugs and the combustion chambers in a huge amount of carbon. If the plugs are totally black and covered with deposits or even wet black, you may need to change them and try to clean the chambers out. I'm not sure where on the HL the PCV dumps back into the incoming ...

Long story short, yes and no. Yes: you will need custom engine mounts and most likely a custom ECU/BCM, assuming the entire powertrain even physically fits. It's not just the engine, you'll need the transmission too as it is unlikely that the Toyota transmission currently in the Highlander could be mated to a Nissan engine. And since the transmission is ...

Both cars share the same bolt pattern and hub size (5 x 114.3" - 60.1mm hub), so the 2013 wheels should bolt onto the 2016 Highlander without issue. The biggest concern would be that the 2013 Highlander uses 16" wheels vs the 2016's 18" wheels, so the smaller 2013 wheels might not clear the brake calipers on the 2016 Toyota, as they probably increased the ...

This is apparently a normal sound. The vacuum pump, according to Toyota, can run at any time. It is required for emission control. And, depending on various conditions, can be much louder or quieter. My understanding is that this pump is a part of secondary air injection. The injected air location varies with the engine temperature, according to the link ...

Nobody has mentioned advice specific to this car. Certain Toyotas manufactured in the early 2000s had a problem with piston rings, which caused excessive oil consumption. Chances are your problem is the same. So, the engine probably needs to be taken apart to remedy this issue. Whether it makes sense for such an old car is a good question. For such an old ...

This sounds like your head gasket might be blown. The amount of oil being consumed is remarkably high. There are far older cars that consume less, so I doubt it's the piston rings, unless there has been some trauma to damage them. It seems like the oil is being burned, since you aren't finding any, but check your exhaust. The amount of oil being burned ...

Whether or not you can do it yourself depends on what the cause of the problem is. If I take into account the fact that you say you can't find any oil leaks and that the oil is being burned off, the most likely problem is that you have broken piston rings and/or ringlands. This will allow oil to seep into the combustion chamber from the crank case. It will ...
