On my 1994 $-Runner the power and timing seens to be off even though I tuned it up 2 months ago. It sucks up gas like crazy and sounds like a lawn mower. The O2 sensor has been on for a while too.

Could it be the altitude change from 5000 to 9000 ft above sea level?

Burlington, VT USA – Tuesday, March 08, 2005 at 13:07:13 (PST) My ’86 4runner won’t down shift when I’m going up a hill. When I push the gas my truck revs real high and then up shifts instead of giving me the power to get up the hill. I am having to drive it in Low 2 around the neighborhoods just so I’ll have enough power to get around.

It does fine in Low 2. Also, where can I find a bikini top? Thanks. Niles

humble, tx USA – Tuesday, January 25, 2005 at 22:03:36 (PST) I have a 1995 4 runner with about 310,000 KM on it. It needs some work, like a new tailgate, but is still running fairly strong. If anyone knows of a place to buy a reasonably priced tailgate, it would be appreciated. I know that there are others, on this posting site, that are in the same boat. I have not been able to locate any aftermarket parts, and salvage parts are almost nil.

Rust is a known problem for this era of 4 runner. Anyway, thanks if there is any advice. Chris


MB Canada – Sunday, January 23, 2005 at 01:07:08 (PST) Need Help, I am replacing the TPS Sensor on my 1990 4Runner. The dealer has told me three different part numbers, 89452-12040, 89452-14050, or 89452-28010. I hear this from every place I call. If anyone knows the correct one I would appreciate the response.

My 4Runner Info; First eight of the VIN# JT3VN39W, was manufactured in 07-1989, and has a EFI 3.0 liter engine. Chris Howey,

AKRON. OHIO USA – Thursday, January 20, 2005 at 15:10:09 (PST) Our 1999 Toyota 4 runner needed the entire block replaced when a connecting rod broke and blew a hole through the block. The car had perfect maintenance records and at 78,000 miles we neede to replace the entire engine.

This was a $6500.00 job plus car rental fees and toyota would assume none of the responsibility. I think that this is totally unfair and poor business practice. We bought the Toyota because they were supposed to stand behind their product. That is obviously not true.

Has anyone else had this problem is there any group action being taken. We can’t be the only ones this has happened to!!

AF, UT USA – Saturday, January 08, 2005 at 10:14:32 (PST) I have a 1997 Toyota Forerunner 4 wheel drive. When I recently tried to engage the 4 wheel drive by pressing the button on the 4 wheel drive shifter I heard a click or relay underneath but nothing happens. It was working 2 weeks ago and a light comes on the dash showing it was engaged but nothing now. It sounds like a relay is not working and the 20A fuse for the 4 wheel is good so it’s getting voltage.

Any suggestions as what could have caused this, and this must have happened to someone else I’m sure? It is 15-30 degrees in the area recently so is it weather related possibly? Thanks, Eric

When I contacted a dealer. They said they only have the plates for Tocoma,and Tundra. That they do not see any listed for a 4runner. Does anyone know if those others will fit. Thank you in advance.

Delmar, ny USA – Saturday, September 25, 2004 at 20:33:35 (PDT) I have a 1987 SR5 Turbo. The engine has just been completely re-done and a new turbo installed. The body has been done, two new front fenders new fiberglass rear fenders. The truck ran poorly after the installation of the engine, low power on bottom end.

The paint job was completed and rust check applied. When we picked it up it had no power(missed bucked and would only move in reverse). I have done the checks on all the components, the code we get indicates the ignitor did not fire four times consecutive. The ignitor tests good and I tried a new one.

It will start and run for a few seconds with the cold start injector plugged in but will not start with the cold start injector unplugged. There is 12 volts at the injectors, I suspect a poor ground but where do I start.

Looking to buy a good used motor. Having trouble finding one without having to pay $1000 for a motor with over 100,000 miles on it. can anyone tell me if any 22re engine will work. I have found a 22re in a 1983 celica but don’t know if it will bolt up to my 4-runner.

Thanks for your time and help! Scotty

I just bought a 1987 4×4 4runner and the manual 5 speed transmission gets really hot after a ten or fifteen mile drive on the freeway. I put my hand directly on the tranny and it was HOT. I believe the gears are all stock in the diff.s and the xfer case.

The RPMs stayed consistant, so I don’t believe the clutch is going out. (I have burnt out a few clutches in my life!)I drained the transmission and it appears to have about one gallon of fluid. There were a few small (almost like metal powder) particles of metal on the magnetic drain plug but nothing substantial. I have never heard of a manual tranny getting real hot before. Can someone tell me what could be causing this?

Would appreciate any help.

Not uncommon for a transmission to get hot during high speed driving. My shift levers get nearly too hot to touch. Synthetic gear oil will help lower the temps a bit.

Hi I have a 95 V6, and it shakes when i am driving it. Have been told that it is due to the bald tires and just needs to be rotated and changed? is this true.


KY USA – Sunday, August 22, 2004 at 11:34:40 (PDT)

Has anyone heard of problems with rear wheels snapping off the axle of 1997 4runners? I did back-to-back swerves to avoid collision at freeway speeds. Driver’s side rear wheel snapped off and caused me to go headlong into center divider. OUCH. My Toyota is totalled and my insurance company is saying its my fault for running into a stationary object.

Weren’t impressed with fact I only had three wheels at the time. Need help.

Dying to get my hands on an 80’s runner! It’s got to be manual transmission and have removable top. Got cash and will buy at the drop of a hat. somebody point me in the right direction I can’t find one anywhere.

After running for a while, my 1989 4runner begins to bog down a little. When this happens i am unable to increase my speed even when i down shift; it feels as if a choke has been some how activated. This problem primarily occurs when the engine has been running for a while. I have taken it to 3 mechanics and all diagnostics check out o.k.

I have also replaced the fuel filter, ignition coil, alternator and it has new plugs and wires. I am not sure what to do as it never acts up when i take it to the mechanic as the engine needs to be good and hot for the problem to exist. At a lose, any suggestions would be great!

My 1987 toyota 4runner with the 22re efi developed an extremely bad miss out of no where. It seems to be running real rich on #3 and kind of rich on #1 and cold on #1 Dist cap, rotor, plugs wires all good. All injectors are pulsing correctly on the two cylinders that were not running rich. When holding accelerator steady at 2500 rpm or so the miss will go away. for a minute and then come back. one person has told me to look into a ecm. others have told me to look into the distributor. any help would be greatly appreciated

Wow, nice place! I have a Cherokee and a 1989 4Runner. Recently I noticed that the CHECK ENGINE light sometimes comes on. Spend $75 for a diagnostic test and get a trouble code 52, which is related to engine knock sensor. The garage gave me a quote of another $320 for replacing it.

Where is the knock sensor located anyway? Thanks and have a great day!

I have the same problem as Ed from Texas. ’95 4Runner – Stereo Wiring Question. I have finally decided to replace the OEM stereo in my 4Runner, problem is that when I connected the rear speakers to my new stereo they have no output. I can connect the rear channel outs from the new stereo to a front speaker and that works so I know that the stereo is working fine. I have read that there may be an amp inline with the rear speakers that is causing the problem.

The toyota wiring harness that connects to the old stereo has two speaker pairs and a single connector as well. Does anyone know if this lone wire is a feed to an amp for the rear speakers and if so what the voltage and MA out should be? Instructions / Precautions. Plz E-mail me if u have any information on this at kthxbi


I have a 1993 4-ruuner SR5 V6 that seems to have blown its gasket. Still starts, but sounds really rough. I’m looking to either sell it, or find someone who can replace the engine and not charge $4000. Bluebook to provate party right now is $7750. There are only 75,788 miles on it. (I’m told I shouldn’t have used Pennzoil).

Everything else about it is in great condition and it is fully loaded, PW, PL, PS, Cruise, AM FM CD, Moonroof, Cruise, Tow, running boards, privacy glass, roof rack, etc. etc. It is white with the blue decal design and is very sharp! Make me an offer that I can’t refuse!
