Question about 1998 Toyota Land Cruiser

1 Answer

Engine wont start after high speed highway driving when i turn it off

I have just bought a Toyota land cruiser VX limited 1998 (England model) with 4.2 ltr turbo diesel engine. I have a problem with it. In city driving i have no problem in starting the engine but on highway after driving at sustained high speeds when I turn it off at a rest stop it refuses to start immediately. After I use the air release pump provided at the diesel filter assembly the engine starts. Any solutions ?

Take off the black plastic that covers the fuel pump.(It is atached to the engine on the left side). There is a grey conector that hooks to the return valve of the pump. It gets hot and looses contact, stoping the engine. There is a factory recall to replace that conector. You can fix it for the moment by umpluging it and twisting a litle the pins with a needle plyer.

I have toyota land cruiser 2000 model and I am expired in overheating. The radiator has been washed and it is getting worse. What could be responsible for the problem


toyota land cruisers use a viscous fan hub attached to the fan and the water pump
they have a habit of failing,resulting in over heating in situations like at lights , slow traffic and high rpms under load ( hilly work. cross country
the over heating cools down when highway speeds are attained
although it spinning when you look at it ,it will not drive and pull air through the radiator.

On what you have said the only thing I can say is that your fuel pump is getting overheated,either is working hard and constantly,or it gets overloaded on electric power. Just call you electrician to check it,probably will need either renewed or use something like a relay

If the "overdrive off" light is flashing, this indicates an error condition in the transmission ECU.

There is a diagnostics procedure you can follow, but it is a bit too long to go in to here. Try and track down a copy of the Toyota service manual, number RM315E (searching the ih8mud forums is a good start) and follow the procedure in there for reading the fault codes.

It involves bridging the diagnostics connector in the engine bay (facing the front of the vehicle with the bonnet open it is to the right of the engine on the bulkhead) - easy to do...

H4 switch, engine


H4 stands for "4 wheel drive; High Range".

Regarding changing to a diesel, you are in for a lot of problems, I am sorry to say. There is a multitude of things that have to be changed, IF the diesel could bolt to your transmission, which it will not. This would be a really,REALLY expensive undertaking.
Personally, I would not attempt it.
Sorry again.
