    rough idle

    I have a 2.7 3rz in a 2002 tacoma with a 5 speed. noticed that when sitting at idle after driving, when rpms drop to about 800 the whole truck gets a vibration, but when you barely hit the gas it stops, and when you let off it does it again. Any thoughts on what could cause that, and how to fix it?

    Hydraulic steering fluid leaking

    I have an 02 Taco. 2.7 liter 3rz 5 speed manual and it’s leaking hydraulic steering fluid. The leak appears to be at the rack and pinion seal. Anyone had this issue, and if so how hard to replace?

    Wheel backspacing

    Wanting to get new wheels for an 02 taco. I read that the wrong backspacing will have the wheel rub on the caliper. I was wanting to do 4.5” back spacing and run a 16 by 8 inch wheel. Will this work without rubbing on the caliper?

    I’ve read that could be a possible cause. Did you have to use a shop press to replace that?
