$500 for after market radiator? Man you got ripped! I got my towing Denso radiator for $80 at RockAuto.

Worn or loose serpentine belt will produce squealing sound and the sound will vary depending upon the engine's RPM. If Boca's observation that the noise doesn't vary with engine's RPM is correct,...

It's going to be a while before we see a decent LS430 at that price range.

The spring inside the mirror housing had come loose due to worn retaining washer and/or shaft. You need to find ways to retension the spring and keep it that way.

19.9 -> 19.5 is %2 change
19.7 -> 19.5 is %1 change

Those mileage percentage changes are statistically insignificant.

All-new LS is just around he corner and once out, the LS460 price is going nose dive. I am going to drive my 01 LS430 which is acquired recently for a few more years and move to LS460 when the price...

That price is a bit high for SoCal market. I would rather buy a slightly higher mileage car at a discount. There isn't much difference between a well-maintained 2001 at 80K vs. a well-maintained...

I would drop the pan if i were you. No need to waste money and replace the filter. Clean the old filter screen and reuse. If everything looks good, you never need to drop the pan again.

Looks like your trans mount is shot from the picture. Replace the trans mount first, then the drive shaft coupler later. Aftermarket coupler is not going to last. I would rather pull a used OEM...

Did you get the 27F from Costco for $85? If so, how is the warranty?

It's good that there is no tranny code but that doesn't mean you're home free. Many internal trans failures will not throw a code. You can try checking the trans shift linkage and position selector...

Get or measure the battery dimensions and do a virtual mockup, which would give you an idea whether or not the 27F would fit. You can get a refund if it doesn't fit.

Thanks everyone for the inputs. I'll replace the crank seal on the next timing belt change since it will take 10-15 additional minutes to change. The cam seals are a different story - way too much...

Congratulation!
Everything looks good but I would be very careful with replacing the trans fluid with anything not genuine Toyota trans fluid.
