Toyota 3.4 Liter 5VZ-FE Engine Replacement

Hey Dudes,

@infamousRNR and I have a important videos series for any diehard 3rd Gen Toyota 4runner owner that plans on keeping their rig forever. We filmed a 3.4 liter motor swap over a 4 day period. It was a ton of work to document and edit but we knew this was an important one to publish.

The engine we used for the video was built by Yota1 Performance in Riverbank, California. They build nice engines and they are an awesome company to deal with. If you're in the market for a rebuilt engine, Yota1 Performance is offering a 5% discount on their engines builds. Use Discount Code:
timmythetoolman - all lower case with no spaces just like you see it.

The series will be 4 parts:

Part 1 - Engine Removal
Part 2 - Old Engine Strip Down
Part 3 - New Engine Build-up
Part 4 - New Engine Installation

Here's Part 1 and we hope you enjoy it.

In Part 2, we walk you through the steps to strip down the old motor of all the parts you will need to swap over to new motor.

Replacing an engine is a lot of work. Filming it on top of it is even more. As our rigs age and more and more succumb to head gasket and valvetrain issues this will be very helpful.

My build and repair thread documents a lot of it and the tools needed for the bellhousing bolts.

I'm in no need of replacing my V6 whatsoever but I'll sure as hell watch! Always wondered what it would take to get these out

Yes Jon, it will definitely be helpful. In true Timmy the Toolman and Sean fashion, we're not scared to put out long and detailed videos for people to use. I doubt anyone else is going to go through the pains to do as detailed of a job, so our video series is probably going to be used by most people looking for help swapping out their 3.4 liter engine. This is not just me patting myself and Sean on the back for what we accomplished with the series. It's just our style to make sure people have the information they need to be successful when they use our videos as a tutorial to accomplish a job. We don't cut corners.

The only thing we did not cover is separating the trans from the engine because we have two other video series that cover this which we provide links to in the video.

Having done this job before (twice), I can appreciate the fact that you guys are making a video for it as more and more of these trucks will need heart transplants in the near future.

What was wrong with Ray's engine that he needed to replace it?

Well done guys!
