Dude, if you get water up to the gas cap, you also got bigger problems than a jammed breather cap!

Dude, if the cap is jammed then it doesn't matter if I'm in water or on the highway, it still won't work. Where I have it now is clean in looks (the wife doesn't even realize that I made the mod, which is always a good thing!) and dirt, and if water ever gets that deep, then I'm in more trouble than that breather is going to get me out of.

I agree with you in that the wife won't know and your location is a good one.

Still, I don't expect any issues with the location I chose as the cap is higher than the gas tank nozzle so any spillage will go down, and it's mounted in such a way that the cap moves freely and unobstructed. Dirt is also not a concern since inside the gas cover is 100% cleaner that on top of the diff, the original location.

Puzzled and curious full-serve gas attendants are told that it's a sensor for would be gas thieves.

Thai, Lance others....

The two main parts from Toyota are:

1. 90404-51319 Union
2. 90930-03136 Plug, breather


Hmmmmm....I bought the breather listed above which is different from the stock breather. Firstly it's all plastic (except the cap), secondly it doesn't have a valve and third the cap is very tight and doesn't move like the stock breather cap.

Questions

1. Is your breather plastic?
2. If so does it incorporate a valve?
3. Is the plastic cap very tight - eg it does not move up or down?
4. Why didn't you guys just use the stock valve that you had removed from the diff originally?

Thanks
Mark

Generations

I believe the generation breakdown is as follows:

1st Gen = 1984 - 1989
2nd Gen = 1990 - 1995
3rd Gen = 1996 - 2002
4th Gen = 2003 - 2006

I did mine not too long ago.
1. Yes it is plastic.
2. I dont know if it incorporates a valve.
3. The cap is tight.
4. Because that cap is designed to jiggle. When it stops jiggling, the "valve" is closed preventing anything in or out. The plastic cap is always open. I sucked and blew through the plastic part, and, although there was resistance, air did go in and out.

I did this on a 3rd Gen. On the 3G, the gas filler cap rubber surround has a tiny hole in it. I stuck the nipple side of the breather through that, adn stuck the hose on the nipple on the other side of the surround. SO all you see is the silver metal cap. No hose clamp, nothing else.

What I also did, as a failsafe, was T the line near the gas cap, and put a breather filter (from Ariba Zone, looks like a miniature cone filter) on the branch of the T. So, I have two breathers.

One thing concerns me. I was fooling around in the engine bay, and I say there was a hose just flopping around. Picked it up, and it a breather hose. Not sure if its front diff or xfer case. Cant find the other one though.

Breather question.

I can locate the breather under the hood, however, i'm only seeing one. There are clips for two lines, but i'm only seeing one. 'is that bad...is that bad?'
I'm planning on doing the rear breather install this weekend, so i will try and figure out exactly which breather i'm seeing under the hood, but does anyone know if I should be seeing two.

I have an 03 4x4Runner, SE-V8
Any guesses?

Just did the install. Thanks for all the pic.s. Made it go soooo easy. Still gotta find the second breather under the hood though. I am only seeing one and can't figure out what if it belongs to the transmission or front dif.o The search continues. But for now,...to find some muddy water! The rain from last night should help.

Another good thing to remember is that the cap will open when it gets too hot to release preasure, but it opens as well. It will open when you enter cold water to equalize the preasure, and suck water into the cap, and in turn, the axle. I used the coiled air hose that come with some compressors to do mine, and I routed the lines into the cab. One throught the firewall, the other into the back through a hole with a sealed gromet. This is on a first gen.

I just did the mod today and there is no worry about gas getting in. Just look at the photos. You can put the breather back in the left corner away from the cap and well above the bottom of the door opening.

Gotta be ID. I ran out and put the vernier over the OD and mine was 0.6 inches.

By the way, I recycled my original breather cap I didn't like the new one much. I have been meaning to post it for sale.
