My Toyota Motorhome

  1. Greetings, I bought my my 1985 22RE automatic with overdrive New Horizon about 3 years ago. According to the person I bought my RV from, the transmission was rebuilt and had only 30k miles on it. Same person said overdrive didn't work, nor did the transmission cooler and it was not important. OD does work, the transmission cooler was/is disconnected. I've driven the RV about about 4000 miles since owning it. It has about 75 k original miles. I've gone over the grapevine probably 6 times. Taking it super easy, nonetheless it's a big long climb... sadly, I left it i
  2. Greetings from the FNG, Has anyone had to address a throwout bearing on one of the 4 speed trannys yet? Mine started making that infamous knocking noise while out of gear however it subsides while in gear, under load. Any and all comments welcome, thanks everyone! Happy travels, BD
  3. I just bought my first RV an 87 Dolphin. I dubbed it Flipper. I got the unit in july of last year. this janurary I cooked the motor after installing a new alternator and failed to tighten the fan bolts to spec. the motor threw a chunk of the rod through the drivers side of the block. so I have gotten a new block. it will need to have all of the brackets , sensors and bits removed from the old block to attach to the new. any help would be great! I am currently at the stage in removing the old motor whereby I have to separate the flexplate or driveplate from the torque converter in the transmiss
  4. I've lost the transmission and crankshaft on my 1984 Toyota Motorhome. I am having a difficult time finding the parts and someone to work on this. Any ideas?
  5. Proud newbie owner of 92 Itasca Spirit with a V6. Bought last summer with 19000 miles. The lady just didn't drive it. Oil change was from 2010 and only had 1000 miles, so i changed that. Put 2500 miles just driving within 75 miles of home and it runs good. Now expanding trips distance to 300 miles. Coolant is orange in color. Transmission is red. Runs great. Should i change these fluids and how and with what brand? Thanks
  6. Hey, can somebody else with a 90s V6 model chime in concerning how many quarts of ATF are used when draining/refilling the auto tranny? I just pulled the plug and drained mine—looks like every bit of 4 quarts came out, which is way more than the owner's manual seems to indicate. Thanks!
  7. I'm thinking of installing a new clutch kit in my 1985 Sunrader, 4 cyl 4-speed manual. I don't think it's ever had any tranny work done, so it's likely got whatever tranny they normally came with. Would it just take a standard 1985 toyota pickup kit or was a different tranny used due to the weight of the rig? Any recommendations as far as manufacturers? And, since the rig weighs in at around 6300# fully loaded, is a heavy duty kit recommended? Thanks for any advice from those better versed than me.
  8. I have been looking at RV's on Craigslist the past couple months and still cant decide between a Toyota or a larger Class C RV. I have heard that the weight of Toyota RV's put too much strain on the engine and transmission. Is there much truth to this? I am planning on living in this because I just moved down to SoCal and its way to expensive down here to rent. I will be driving it a few times a week but not planning on going on many trips. I might buy a motorcycle to tow as well I would also gladly accept any advice and tips on buying or living in a Toyota RV
  9. Well, I was making my way from Michigan to Kentucky last week when suddenly...smoke and no transmission. I have an 86 Dolphin automatic. It looks as though the fix will be more than I spent on the thing to begin with. The furnace, fridge, and oven all need to be repaired. This poor old tired baby also has considerable dry rot here and there. The rig is about three hours from where I live. Does anyone have ideas for me to sell this vehicle that will need surgery to the tune of 2,500 - 2,700 dollars? Thanks, Pete PS It died in Peru Indiana.
  10. Hi folks, I'm new here, just started looking for a Toy to purchase. I talked to a guy today who has a very clean 1988 Toyota Winnebago and he said he had the transmission replaced last year and apparently the guy put in the wrong transmission for that particular model (the mechanic told him there were 5 and he ended up with the wrong one. I guess it took so long to get it done, they just "called it good." The thing shifts just fine, the problem is that you don't know what gear your in on the automatic shifter, for example park is reverse or something like that. Is this a big deal? Will it giv
  11. I have a 91 Dolphin with the V6 and the ECT button on the dash. Is there a reason I shouldn't leave it in on all the time? Or is it bad for gas mileage or hard on the transmission? Thanks, Bob
  12. my first post! (and most probably not my last!)..here's my situation: 1993, 21' Conquest, 53,000 miles, third owner - bought from a friend of a friend last fall. Sold off house and all my belongings and hit the road to full time it in January...yep escaped most of those 'polar vortexes' of last winter - and have had some trials and tribulations that would be expected driving a 20 yro vehicle..that is actually in pretty darn good shape... had the truck 'once overed' before i hit the road and replaced all the hoses etc... i am not a mechanic at all, but have a few friends who are real motorheads
  13. Hi everyone, This has only happened a few times but recently in the early morning from a cold start my trans will slip out of gear when im pulling out of my spot at 2-5mph..anybody have any ideas? I'm gong to do a trans fluid flush tonight,I read on here that it could be low..what else do you think it could be? is this typical of these engines? thank you for any advice!!
