Black specks in transmission fluid? Well, that’s not good. How does the ATF smell?
TBH, I think your ATF should have been changed about 12 years ago, if this is what you’re now seeing.
Also, my 2005 Explorer’s still puttering along. I just lost use of reverse, 1st, and 2nd. I’ve driven it maybe 900 - 1,000 miles since it went.

Smells like grease or oil. But it has a red hue still.
I can’t imagine how I would do anything without reverse. Perhaps ask a friend to push me backwards in neutral then? lol
The car had the fluid changed probably 8,000 miles or so ago. But it was never changed before that and we had shifting problems but it was resolved after the fluid flush. I’m thinking we should avoid flush and ask for just a fluid change, since a flush might make it worse (just from what I remember on a ChrisFix video) since it’s slow to shift once again

Nice. Allante could work for a coupe, where as Fleetwood could work for a sedan and wagon.
On a related note, What if Cadillac sold the Astra K? What would the name be?

Hey everyone, I’m new here and I just discovered the forums tab. Knew there would be an automotive chat lol
Anyways, I am a certifed Toyota Technician, and have all beginner ASE certifications (planning to get Professional certs next year, and hopefully Master after that)
I own a Subaru outback, and a 1993 Mercedes-Benz 300D that I’m currently restoring. (Will post pictures soon)
Today I just finished a torque converter replacement on a 2018 Highlander, wasn’t that much of a mystery as I’ve removed the same transmissions twice before on different cars

I bought her back in august for $1,200, but there’s a reason she was cheap though. She had a bad rod knock from #3, completely destroyed the bearing, and severely damaged the crankshaft. Last Saturday I brought the head, block, and pistons to a machine shop so that they can make sure the measurements are still within spec, and do some cleaning.
260,000 Miles on body and engine, body is being used as a table for garage things as i didn’t want to leave it outside in the winter

Ah a Toyota technician who knows first-hand about the legendary Toyota reliability!
Diesel Mercedes’ are easy to work on, from what I hear. Built like tanks but super simple designed. Subaru Outbacks are awesome cars, can’t get much better combo for a daily driver.
Surprised you don’t daily drive a toyota!

I know a lot of people here probably aren’t very familiar with heavy machinery, but the same guy that sold me a D400 caterpillar is now offering me a cat 994k wheel loader. It’s suspiciously low priced despite how new it looks. Guy claims it’s got irreparable blow by and the engines burning oil which I find kind of hard to believe. He wants 30K for it and he’ll have it delivered to me. Should I bite the bullet and take the offer and see what’s up with it or turn it down?

I do want a Series 80 Land Cruiser one day, gonna see if I can import one from Japan.
And I can say, while Toyota’s are reliable, we still do as many recall repairs as any other manufacturer. Any car will be reliable if you do basic preventative maintenance.

It is a great price, yes. But this thing is also bigger than my house.@RainbowDash69
Found my dream classic to own. Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser the ultimate sleeper wagon!
@ACApenetrator50
It’s an incredible amount of money. I feel like you’ll need to replace the entire top of the engine. But it seems like you have the skill to do it, so yes buy it.
@ToyotaLC80
Yep I’m sure you’ve done lots of timing chain jobs and such too

Welcome to the forum.
How do you like your job as a Toyota tech? I had briefly considered becoming a mechanic before I decided it wasn’t a good career. If I ever took a mechanical course it would be just to mess around in my garage with some project car.

Chrysler Airflow. I bet they’re putting all their faith in this one crossover to save the entire brand. If it fails Chrysler will die 😂
Certainly taking cues from Hyundai and Tesla
