  1. My employer has a fleet of Toyota's, 2015ish Toyota camry got where it wouldn't start, acted erratic one time it was like a fuel pump next time it wouldn't even turn over had to be hauled to shop, i can't remember the brand but they have a scanner one step below say the snap on still couldn't find out what was wrong did some research its the key fob, it was a aftermarket that went bad made the car think someone was trying to steal it and it went into lock down where only the dealer could reset it spare factory fob wouldn't even work at that point, had to haul it to the dealer and 900 dollars to reset it. Co worker had a camry 08ish battery went bad over a long weekend had to have it towed to dealer because when they put new battery on it it thought it was getting stolen, another co worker same car close to same year last month was having trouble with the keyless entry again no one but the dealer could reset 150 later they reset it took 10 minutes but charged a hour. I got more stories not just toyota
  2. last one i worked on was last year it had a leak over winter, found a loose line at the compressor tightened it and i pulled a vacuum on friday came back monday and it was still holding so i refilled it started it let it run a couple minutes shut it off and climbed down heard a hiss looked up and saw a frosty patch ou the side of the cab right over the door stopped pulled the top off and it was coming out of the expansion valve, those things are a PIA sometimes to get lined up and all the fittings/lines tighten correctly, first time i ever had one hold a vac but still have a leak, that day i learned just because it pulls a vac doesn't mean it still won't leak when your pushing gas. Another thing i forgot to mention is window tint, the guys like it and it does cut down on the glare and heat from the sun but I'm still on the fence, I've never been a real big fan of the real dark stuff on anything just because having to drive/use it after dark
  3. pull the top on the cab get the foaming condenser/evaporator cleaner from the big box store follow directions on can clean evaporator till clear water runs out make sure your drain tubes are cleaned if not whoever runs it next will get a muddy water bath, the lid on the cab is supposed to have a piece of foam on it if not or in rough shape replace it, cut the outward air flow off i've got in arguments over this in the past but like ace said you don't want to be cooling the hot air from outside and off the rear end, cut off heater valves, the aux condenser has really been working for us not just with performance but the life of the compressors, as far as flow and fans goes i agree it's not a good design but we only have one 54 and i got all the rest cooling as good as it,one thing i do that others might not agree with and I'm not saying it works for everyone, we run in 99% grass so i leave the foam out of the bottom of the radiator, less grass and junk collects and when you wash it out it runs out, i've replaced every radiator we have at least once and all but one was rotten at the bottom from junk collected over the years, one 50 cools better than the rest and i've yet to figure out what is different with it then the rest tried to mimic it and can't, if you do go to put the aux on one thing you can try is flush the system it's amazing how much junk is in those lines just don't run the flush thru your drier compressor or expansion valve
  4. had one that wouldn't shift like that it was bad cab mounts
  5. you ever see that trick where someone writes or types a sentence and the first and last letter are correct but everything in the middle is mixed up in each word but when you read it you have no problems, they say it's because you don't look at the whole word or something like that
  6. 7800 are getting old enough now they're showing there age the glue that holds the brake disc together are failing from age then you got a mess,i've heard of people upgrading to 20 series brakes and never missing a beat since, i personally like the powerquad over the powershift but both are expensive to work on but then again what ain't these days, 8.1 deere is a good engine but the ol 400 series is tough to beat in the 14, again the 7800 is getting old just like anything else my brother has one right now at a small fire started under the cab from the blower motor for the hvac, this is kinda common in the 6 and 7000 series even up to the 6 and 7x10, sounds like half the stuff that burnt is NLA from deere, after a few months he finally found a cab but it has yet to show up. the 14 is easier and really cheaper to work on, not as nice shifting or ride with the cab on the deere, 8.1 runs good and holds together fine but that dt is easier to work on and will make more power and stay together longer doing it
  7. fleetguard restore follow the instructions on the jug and get on amazon or harbor freight and get a coolant system vac, they're worth the money and they do just as good as job as my snap on
  8. had this happen on 3 different tractors twice it was the damper and the third was the fan bearing bad
  9. i've had a piece of rubber i think it came from the cover over the iso coupler that ripped off and get in the system caused a bunch of problems but no jamming
  10. I wouldn't trust a used clutch pack unless they could prove it was a low hour one, if your just getting parts to put on the self for spares i would get any of the fan fan shafts brackets etc. get all the park pawl assembly including the linkage that runs up the side of the trans, earlier ones have a different one then new ones but those should sale good either way last i check they're NLA, if any of the harnesses are good get them. the little cover over the bottom radiator hose they like to rot if it's good get it radiator itself i've had to replace everyone we have or had it repaired, the pto valve under the tank on top of the rear end give me a little while and ill prob think of something
  11. co worker has found 6 full sets and i think a dozen total, first full set he found on December the 8th, earliest sheds i've ever seen or heard of nice sized 8, he was sitting in his truck eating lunch and saw the first one at the edge of a wooded area then found the other side in the wooded area maybe 6 feet away
  12. I've always said as long as you keep the seat warmers and steering wheel holders off of them they will do fine but the same can be said for other brands not just from that time frame but in general
  13. should be able to give that s-4800 number to a guy at the parts counter at your local mother case and they can print it off for you or at least mine does
  14. yeah i pulled it out to remove the battery box, this would be right under the inner step if it was mounted
  15. This was under the right side of the cab under the step/ battery lid I know a lot of people put all the controllers and monitors over on that side of the cab but this was in a odd spot I've never seen before wonder if anyone else might know what it was about kinda looks like a factory made piece that's been modified
