What if there was more coordination between Japan and Germany and they both attacked Russia? Would the Japs been bogged down and driven to the sea? Even if that happened would that give the time the Germans needed to take all the major cities?

The biggest help Japan could have been to Germany would have been simply being a threat to the USSR. With the Japanese being there and threatening, the Soviets couldn't have transfered the divisions they had in Siberia to defend Moscow like they did in 1941. Whether they accomplished anything else is irrelavent; by just being there, the Japanese would have tied down forces the Soviets desperately needed elsewhere.

They both would have access to vital resources of the Soviet Union to keep their war machines running, including the oil fields in the Caspian Sea and the natural gas reserves in Siberia.

The US, Britain, and Dutch shut down all exports to Japan. Japan's economy collapses. Japan loses. The Russians outlast the Germans, Germany loses.
