I went to the 4WD show the other night and was talking to the Aussie Swag exhibitors - Noel and Julie. They have just gone from a Jeep Cherokee to a 100 series V8, and on their way back to Brisbane recently they cooked the transmission. What happened is that the flexible high pressure hose connecting the transmission to the oil cooler was contacting the fan, and sure enough it wore through, lost all the oil and cooked itself. Took two weeks in Armidale to get it sorted out through Toyota. Noel was talking to another bloke, and he had the same vehicle and the same problem, but this time after just 69 Km - absolutely brand new! Noel then contacted another of his contacts who had the same vehicle, and when he checked, only a slight touch was required to unseat the hose from its pathetic retaining clip and allow it to contact the fan.

I only raise this in case people out there have this vehicle - if you secure the pipe properly, you shouldn't have trouble. If you don't, and have a transmission failure in the middle of nowhere, my sympathy meter will be on the zero stop...... Russell S

I will have to look at the first page inside the overlander again....thought the person in the patrol had to do the walking, we should all get together and sue Toyota for false advertising...

Thanks for the tip, put the 100 up on the hoist today and took off the belly cover to find the clip. little plastic thing , not strong at all, under pressure the hose could lift up to the fan easily. couple of zip ties it seems or a hose clamp is the way to go.. 15 min job.

thanks again for the tip.
