Question about 1999 Toyota 4Runner

1 Answer

AT has trouble in Reverse, when coming to a stop, or when pulling

I had this 4Runner serviced. Here are the things I have done since I have owned it:
Rear axle seal -drivers side - never replaced shoes on Drum brakes or drums - the rear diff fluid was changed at this time.
Replaced radiator due to leak of lines from Trans. - Napa had to flush 3 or 4X to get all of the vacuum leaks out. They did replace the filter and used decron III fluid(?)
Transmission Mount - thought it was the problem with tranny so I replaced it.
New Rotors, Calipers and Pads
Replaced Mass Air Flow Sensor and O2 Sensor
Now it is having this exciting problem that I cannot diagnose. Sometimes when I start it and other times it is random. It seems to be 'pulling' me backwards when I stop and something hits hard when I pull away from an intersection. This morning I was travelling down hill in very heavy stop and go traffic. The problem occured and I could have sworn I had been rear ended. It did not seem to want to go after that. Other times it hesitates going into reverse as if I actually shifted into neutral instead.

Any advice is apprecaited,

Kim

    The condition that you are describing sounds like seized rear brake shoes, due to a sticking parking brake pivot. Try this: Get the vehicle lifter up off of the ground, put it in neutral, and spin the rear wheels. If one (or both) are hard to spin, you need to look at the park brake pivots. This is a very common occurrence. Let me know what you find. Thanks.

Transmission/97/toyota/camery


I assume it is an auto by what you say. Is the O/D light blinking any codes? It is common in that model for the shift solenoids to fail, one or both, and the transmission then cannot find low gears forward.

Get a readout of trouble codes from a mobile come-to-you mechanic, or your own OBD reader, to see if that is it.

We have a 1991 4runner we have replaced the knock sensor but are finding when the 4runner gets warm we are loosing power can u help please


One thing that you don't want to overlook, would be a brake holding you back. To rule this out you would need to drive it , making a few normal complete stops and l0 to 15 minutes, giving everything long enough to warm up. Then pull off into a parking lot out of traffic and get out of the vehicle and walk around it , touching the lug nuts or in that area of each wheel, feeling to see if one wheel is noticeable hotter than all the rest. Usually the front wheels run about the same temperature and the back about the same. Or jack each wheel up and see if they turn free. This needs to be done in neutral.

In the 95 4runner, what should the temperature


Which engine does your forerunner have? They are not known for overheating, so you may have a problem in your cooling system. Is the system losing water? The first thing to do is get a pressure test of the cooling system done. At the same time ask them to test the thermostat. If all ok, Have the engine and radiator reverse flushed, and add corrosion inhibitor. Should be ok after this is done.

Transmission not going into gear


I see this is kind of a stale post, but i'll try anyway. First, check your clutch fluid reservoir. If it's full, you may have air in the line, a bad master cylinder, or slave cylinder, or your clutch is worn out.

97 4runner making a low whirring noise/whine from engine.


Could be a possible break down of the plug wires. Seems that I remember hearing if your plug wires are breaking down inside and if its up against the motor you can hear something that sounds like interference in your radio. Just a thought, might want to check it out.
