How to Remove & Replace a Toyota 4x4 Manual Locking Hub
How to remove and replace a Toyota Manual Locking hub. This video shows
how I pull the manual locking hub off a Toyota 4x4 truck. The video shows
my technique for dealing with the cone washers that can be quite stubborn
sometimes. Toyota used the exact same hubs from 1979 - 1985 trucks ( Hilux
) and 4Runners with only minor changes from 1986 - present.
How to fix an oil leak between the transmission and transfer case, Dodge Ram
This video is the first of two volumes showing a detailed step by step
description of how I replaced the seals between my 46RE 4-speed automatic
transmission and the 231 HD transfer case. Those are stock parts on a 1998
1500 Dodge Ram 5.9L 4X4. This repair was necessary because of a chronic low
volume leak of ATF from the weep hole between the two parts. This type of
leak may seem to be coming from the transfer case, since gravity and
surface tension draws multiple oil droplets down and back from the source
of the leak. Details of how to remove and replace the transfer case are

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.
