How-To: 1994 Toyota 4Runner Rear Pinion Seal
Changing out the rear pinion seal is SUPER easy! Just be careful about
tightening up the nut again after. try to get it to what it was at before,
or just a hair (literally 1/10'th turn) more.
Thanks for Watching! I hope this helps someone!

2000 Toyota 4Runner Transmission Noise
Not sure what it is exactly, but it is coming from the transmission.
Through the oil plug hole a piece of a chain can be seen, possibly the
chain tensioner does not provide enough force and the chain is rubbing
against the casing.
2004 Toyota 4Runner Transmission Fluid and Filter Change (Part 1) -EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/
Discussion about this video:
To be honest if I were to do this job again I would just change the fluid
and leave the filter alone. It's much less of a headache and you won't
have to worry about the Exhaust which
would be the most challenging part in my opinion. Aside from that it's not
likely a filter change will have any real benefit since it's a closed
system. In addition there is some speculation as to what the service
interval actually is for the transmission fluid and filter is. Lastly be
sure that you have some sort of pump to get the fluid into the transmission
before you get started because as I show in the video there is no dip stick
for this transmission that you can fill through. You also need to be sure
to use the proper fluid, I've got my fingers crossed that the MaxLife that
I used will hold up fine, so far it's been about 2 months since I shot this
video and it seems to be fine. In all it's not a bad job there are just
specific procedures that need to be followed to be successful with it.

Trans & Clutch 1 - Remove Transmission
This is the first in a multi-video series regarding clutch tech. The
clutch itself is a simple mechanism, but it's buried deep in the engine, so
you can't just cover the clutch. First, you have to cover how to remove
the transmission to get to it.
This project started off strange, got kind-of not-good, and then took a
turn for the worst. The typical clutch job is not as difficult as the next
video will display, but it's good this happened to me because I film this
kind of crap. If for some asinine reason you encounter the kind of failure
I experienced, you'll know what to do after the next video. Clutch
assembly will be covered in a third video.
About the car:
You saw the other assembly video. You know when I put this thing together.
You know it doesn't come out to play when it's cloudy. I've had it on the
road less than an earl change. Freshly rebuilt TRE Stage 2.5 trans with a
brand new ACT 2600 and a sprung 6-puck (MB1-XTG6) on a stock flywheel.
This is Transmission #4.
