    Great news 2000Prado hope it stays that way! Thanks for the update, seems that MAF and TPS are chiefly responsible for the sluggishness on the 5VZ, nice to know what parts to focus on.

      Unfortunately, three days and less than 30km of town driving later, the issue with the ABS has returned. Still drives beautifully from the MAF point of view, but the ABS and TRC lights are back on the dash (no grinding as of yet), which is somewhat irritating. If it turns out to be the same issue again, I'm left scratching my head wondering what underlying problem could make a new wheel speed sensor fail in 3 days :/

        Wiring/connector? The fact it was fixed for a few days would to me indicate the module works. Maybe worth disconnecting that wheels sensor and cleaning up the connector contacts.

          Perhaps check the sensor clearance is correct, if it is mounted at or more than the maximum clearance it will not function correctly and could post an intermittent code.

            Hey guys, Prado's been back to the auto elec who said there was oil and some brake dust on the sensor. He cleaned it up and said there's possibly a leak somewhere, but said he's not really sure where (wondered whether it's the diff) and that's not his field. I've driven it about 60kms since then and no issues as of yet; if it goes again will be heading to a mechanic to work out what's causing this problem.
