Im changing out an ugly switch connected to my spotlights, replacing it with an OEM style push switch but I have one question regarding the wiring.
The wiring coming from the new OEM style switch is much thinner than the wiring in the harness. Is this safe? I don’t want to burn down my car...
I was driving my 2012 GX prado when it randomly lost power and turned off.
After manually pumping the fuel filter, the car would start and would run for a minute or so, and thereafter it would die again. What is causing this issue? Any advice is appreciated!

Took my car in to get the front right wheel checked after I noticed a slow leak.

Just serviced my car at Nissan and they’re quoting 1450 to repair a leak at the timing cover gasket.
Is this reasonably priced? Is this something you can DIY? Is it simply just a gasket seal that needs to be replaced?
