Question about Toyota Cars & Trucks

Open Question

98 toyota 4runner, wont start after accident .

Hit deer dead center. The truck run down the road a few miles, temp gauge never showed any problems with getting hot, and wasn't making any funny noises. steam was coming out of the punctured radiator. Then it just shut down, and would not restart. Towed home, replaced radiator, and ac condenser, and still won't start, is there something that needs to be reset. The radiator, and ac condenser were the only damage, outside the grill, and bumper. Air bags did not deploy. A point in the right direction would be very beneficial. Thanks for all your help. :)

SOURCE: just replaced radiator, but temp. gauge is rising to the red line

preform a pressurized collant flush , take it to a raidior shop to have it done , they will clean and blow out all blockages that might cause your car to over heat. also check to make sure you dont have air pockets in your anit freeze, if you do you need to bleed the system out after you have it flushed , your car should have a blead valve to let out the axcess air ,if not drive it down the road with the cooaint overflow cap off , not the radiator but you need to flush out the system first , add new anti freeze then bleed out all air pockets, hope this helps

SOURCE: AC cools then blows hot air, tempature needle goes up & down

Sounds like the thermostat is trying to stick,and is causing the engine to over heat,therefore condenser is not cooling the freon down enough to cool.Have the thermostat changed and the cooling system bled out,this is most likely the cause.

FixInfax is right except I'll add a few add ons to his statement. Number one. If the airbag deployed you'll have crash data saved in the airbag module. Anytime an airbag is deployed and data is stored you must replace the airbag module as well and the new one must be coded by Volkswagen. Number 2 as a technician of vw I would not erase or repair any airbag faults previously repaired by someone else because we cannot be sure what parts were installed or if they were well installed. If someone came to me and said we replace the module and the airbags can you code the module alone my answer would be NO, because too many safety aspects ride on it. Imagine someone did this for a client and a day later they were fatelly injured because of a crash or deployment and the last person to touch the system was a vw tech. It is too risk for the tech to do so, so when an airbag is replaced it should be only done by the qualified tech who will do the whole job.

I hit a deer with my 2007 toyota 4runner ( at 65 mph),did over 5000.00 front end damage. Was drivable but next day began having engine trouble, tech said codes showed either throttle body trouble or...


Of course , even the slightest shock can damage the mass air flow sensor and the idle valves inside the throttle body that would send messed up data to the computer and make the air/fuel mixture way out of the correct parameters - triggering engine troubles. You could even have broken wires that wouldn't sent the correct commands to the injectors or other sensors.
The truck must be thoroughly inspected for all of these.

Temp gauge is bouncing up and down on my 99 toyota 4runner.I think its a loose connection but i dont know where the wires are for the gauge. can u help?


Look under the hood. I think it is unlikely to have something loose under the dash, unless some work has been done under there lately. Get a helper to watch the gauge, while you wiggle wires......The wire involved in the temp circuit is small gauge.... push and pull on all wiring that you see, while the helper watched the gauge...

Start up idlespeed 1800rpm


this seems to be a common thing with Toyota engines. mine have always done this. however, if an equipped Temperature gauge has to hit dead center first, there may be something wrong.

Intermitant temperature


Check to make sure your thermostat works right by monitoring the warming up of your engine. With a completely cold engine, start and run the engine for a few minutes, then put your hand on the top radiator hose to monitor if and when it gets warm as the thermostat opens more and more and note the gauge reading( if it works) the top radiator hose should be unbearably hot within 5-8 minutes. If the therm. opens right it should close right aswell, staying open a little while eventhough the radiator may have cooled may be what you are experiencing causing the rapid cooling and is nothing to worry about. The Hose should not get warm very soon after starting the engine. Regarding you gauge, lets take one step at a time, verify proper op. or the therm.
