  3. Transmission leak

    Have an oil leak at the shifter where it goes into the transmission on the drivers side ( 2009 fx4), just wondering how hard they are to replace. Guessing drop the transmission pan and remove the shaft to replace the seal but haven,t done it before so any guidance would be appreciated.
  4. No heat

    Working again with new blend door actuator (sure wasn't, no15.00, paid 70.00 ca, transport to a colder climate must cost more), old actuator didn't,t have any broken gears, just the brushes on the electric motor breaking off, did do a limited search for just the motor and no luck, figures...
  5. No heat

    Quick update, removed the actuator and tested the motor and it would not move with power so I took the back of the motor off to find the brushes twisted and not making contact, ordered a new actuator so should have it working again tomorrow.

  7. No heat

    Thanks for the info Bird, took the actuator out and looked inside for damage but everything seems to be ok, no broken gears, the drive on the actuator does not move with the key on when operating the heat control valve so I am going to have a look at the control panel heat switch first and see...

Have been told every 60 thousand miles, don't mind changing things for maintenance but not just to change things, don't have a ob2 reader but truck runs fine...
  10. Broken arm rest

  13. Bushing change to bearing

    2009 4+4, fx4 front passenger side axle, just had truck in to have axle seals changed, they tell me the bushing on the axle is worn and wearing a groove in the axle, upon trying to order a bushing they say it has been changed to a bearing, does that make sense, may change the axle also, who has...
