Scotty I like your recommendations and your humor. My question is whovj Toyota year and model would you recommend newer than 2002, a four door. which is relatively maintenance free. I am thinking of driving for Uber. 😊44
I have replaced a number of half shafts, but I did buy a jar of that atp rubber rejuvenation product you mentioned and this spring will spray all the boots. It seems that is where the problem starts, the develop a rip and the rest is history with junk destroying the joint with water and road sand and junk entering. By the way thanks for the tip.
I have a 20 year old Acura CL 3.0 I do most of the maintenance myself. Although I cant work as well due to my age, I have not had an issue with the transmission but had a problem with one of the cv half shafts which didnt seat properly and the end gear tore up my seal. It was a pain replacing but got the job done and has not leaked since. But cars always have something going wrong especially one twenty years old. I have almost 200 k on the car. It being cold in the northeast and without a garage to work on it , the exaust system will have to wait till spring time. Not looking forward to working on my back and trying to wrench those bolts off. Pretty
sure I have to go to where it bolts onto the cat converter. Though the stainless steel pipe is still good, the joints rusted through and its been surviving on a galvanized
reducer fitting and lots of silicone sealer. But atlas its loud again.
They’re great cars as well, does not matter what year.
Scotty, what do you think of Toyota's Rav4 , I have three neighbors who have them.?
corolla or camry, does not matter what year
