i'd like to take care of my trans filter but the DIY shops near me aren't open today. Was stoked to find that carquest carries Toyota fluids last week to include coolant. Guess i'll order my timing belt kit and find a cabin air filter.

I got the Nokya Artic White's and really love em. I like how these bulbs cast a shadow of yellow or blue(depending on which one), when they are off. I need to do the same about my city lights, the regular stock filament ones just don't cut it.
Yeah I love the look. I tried getting Raybrigs for city lights in yellow but they are discontinued. So I got PIAA.

Replaced the traction control button light, hazard light, ash tray light, and shifter illumination panel light. I just ordered the cigarette and pwr/snow button lights too.

it was more of this last weekend, but... took headlights and fogs out. took them apart completely, painted the insides flat black, removed the factory ballasts, sanded the yellow off the fog projector lenses, and installed 55w 5,000k HIDs from DDM in the lows and fogs. packed ballasts in where the factory ones were, soldered, heat shrink, the whole 9 yards. sanded and polished all the lenses. resealed and lookin sexy now. only took 2 days. :S

I tries getting rid of that gurgling sound coming from my glove box and was unsuccessful =\
gurgling? or water rushing? sounds like you might have an air pocket in your coolant lines. thats what mine is. coolant was leaking out from my bypass hose, letting air in... part was $19 from lexus, + 2 gal of coolant from TOYOTA ($20 cheaper than lexus, same exact stuff). $21 each.

Agreed.

You can't let it go, it's rather important you get the air out to avoid core damage. The normal technique didn't help me either, that's why i use the funnel method or you can drain some via rad drain, both techniques with the rad cap off. Make sure to use the coolant that's in the car. This goes into it further...
