You make it look so easy, Montie. And here at home I battled for 3 weeks to replace a braided water hose to the toilet cistern, damn thing kept leaking where it screwed onto the galvanised pipe nipple. Still drips a little but very slowly now.

Re: Hilux Surf 3RZ-FE Engine

You need to take photos of the resistors if possible, the colour bands indicate the resistors' value. If the resistor overheats and discolours, these colours would be hard to identify. An orange band might become brown in such a case, resulting in an incorrect reading of value.
