Question about 1997 Toyota Land Cruiser

3 Answers

Power problem My Prado is not pulling properly, acceleration is delayed once I have put my foot down, the car does not respond instantiously, but after 3-4 seconds. Going uphill is also a struggle, It's just been serviced by a Toyota dealer they say possible transmission problem. (ouch) Have checked transmission fluid and is clean as and to required level. Car is 3.4 litre '97 Landcruiser Prado done 200k but has full service history, also never had a tow bar. Based in Pukekohe, Auckland.

It is a performance problem which is so widely ignored however here is a tip the throttle position sensor is going bad, what i call as a flat spot it takes a 5 - 6 seconds before you can feel the power on acceleration? check the tps switch, mounted on the throttle body secondly make sure if the vehicle has a EGR valve make sure that it does not open on acceleration the best way to test this is to temporarly disconnect the EGR and see if this solves the problem if it does then just replace the EGR control modulator!!

  1. G`day Kevin
had a similar problem with my vehicle and what fixed the majority of the accelaration and missing when putting your foot down was replacing the seriousy blocked muffler.
The muffler dude said it was about 15 kilos more than it should have weighed. Just blocked up with ****.
Hope that helps a bit

Engine dies when cold

All cars are sensitive to cold .it being a new car you can turn on the ignition for say 30sec to a min before cranking to allow the oxygen sensor heater to warm so it can read properly and will help in these conditions .also a new set of spark plugs can help too.

Car will not accelerate when gas pushed

Clutch plate and pressure plate seem to be too weak to pull the car. To test the clutch plate, park the car on flat surface. Pull the hand brake up, start the car, depress the foot brake pedal, depress the clutch pedal, put the car in 1st gear, press the gas pedal and leave the clutch pedal at once, while keeping the brake pedal depressed.
Follow one of the two following statements:
1. Engine does not shut down and remain start. (Clutch plate, pressure plate and clutch bearing defective - Replace all as a set)
2. Engine shuts down. (Clutch system is OK and does not require any repair).

Your diesel fuel strainer or filter may be blocked. similar thing happened with a friend's Prado recently. Have the strainer cleaned and replace your fuel filter. Hope this helps.

not likely that you did any damage doing this just once. It would be best to keep your foot on the brake pedal until the car is all the way in gear.

Blazer not responding to the accelerator, won't rev up

I'm actually going through the same thing, after i just had my fuel pump replaced. Mine turned out to be my Mass Air Flow sensor (MAF) which when not working properly has the same effects as your acceleration not working.
