That little radiator is the transmission oil cooler. The engine oil cooler is an area near the oil filter where small hoses deliver coolant from the radiator to take heat away from the engine oil, unless there is something new on the 03's that is not on my 00.
All of the Toyota V-8's have a "water to oil" oil cooler. It is sanwiched between the filter and block. This cooler is VERY effective in maintaining proper oil temperature. The Tundra and Sequoia both have a "clutch fan" operated by the serpintine belt on the motor. Only the Sequoia (with rear AC I believe) has a front mounted electric "pusher" fan mounted on the radiator (condenser) visible to the right when the hood is open. All 2000-2001 Tundras and Sequoias have an "air to oil" transmission cooler. This is the smaller plate cooler (radiator visible to the left as you open the hood). All Tundras and Sequoias (as most cars with an automatic transmission) have a "water to oil" transmission fluid cooler. This is installed in the lower radiator "tank" and the rubber inlet and outlet lines are easily seen when the skid plate is removed.
I'm trying to program a new key fob I got off Amazon for my 02 sr5, and for some reason, even though I do it in complete sync with the videos on YouTube, I cannot get the car to automatically lock and unlock after doing the steps. Anyone have insight on this?
I recently replaced the (severely blown) rear shocks. Looking around back there, it's clear all four lower control arms and the lateral rod are factory original from 2004 and 261k miles ago. Has anyone ever replaced all of those bushings? By my count there would be...10 total? Does anyone even...
When the vehicle sits for a day or two and you turn the key to start, the engine just cranks and cranks. Turn the key off and try to start it again...not a problem and it starts right up. Any time during the day or sometimes even the next day it also starts right away.
2004 Sequoia. In the middle of a timing belt, so far pretty easy. But.... I'm getting conflicting info on reinstalling the belt.
- Should the crank be set to TDC, or 50°ATDC upon reinstall?
Going to grab some coolant and hoping for an answer by my return!! 😁
