Question about 1999 Toyota 4Runner

2 Answers

Not sure if this is the proper way to respond on this website.

Thanks for your advice, you could not be more right. I took it to the shop this evening. The LR axle seal that they replaced less than 6 months ago is now leaking. I may still have the problem with the e-brake that you spoke of as it does seem to be hard to release on a hill. I even put the transmission into neutral prior to applying the e-brake but it still seems to release hard (the brake drums themselves, not the lever)

I had trouble with the same LR axle seal. Changed two of these and then discovered that the problem was a plugged axle vent cap that was plugged due to rust. The leak occurred at the LR axle seal as it was the weak point in the system. Easy to replace vent cap, and cheap ($12 CAN).

My car stalls while driving - not sure what is causing problem

First off- you don't replace any parts based
on someone telling to & not having actually done
any testing, to determine what issues or problem
the car may have.
Unless you said the fuel filter was more than 4 years
old or you had no idea how long it was in the car,then
all that advice was a waste,common sense.
The only time any sensor gets replaced, is when it is
component tested & fails a test,again you see where
I'm going.
I fail to see where Gender has any role with motor vehicles
Men don't know anything either & 70% of vehicles are taken in
to shops by women.
I go by what you wrote. You said I replaced- meaning "you"
If your saying you took the shops advice & they did whatever,
then they returned your car without properly diagnosing it,
finding the issues & resolving them,in which case you need
a different shop.
You say still doing it eg: took to a shop to resolve
an issue & they didn't
Can't guess at these things ,need the vehicle to test
as they should have done.

Thank you both for your advice, i think my next step is to try an get it over to a shop somehow!! Because i Got the alternator tested and made sure the battery holds its load. I'm thinking it has to be...

Well that is a possibility. But, first you have to take into account how the alternator was tested. If you took it out of the vehicle and a parts place or auto shop bench tested it and results were good, right there tells you that the problem lies within your vehicle. Just where...? But I have a good clue that that blue wire is something to do with the problem. Thank you.

Repair shop can't find A/C pressure connections Audi 96 A4

The 1996 Audi A4 only has a High side refrigerant port. Right where you found it. Right side of radiator.
(Not to insult your intelligence. The passenger side of the car is the right side)

Look for the refrigerant lines going to the exchanger.
With this single port, you must evacuate the entire system, and replace the refrigerant with the proper amount.
(Obviously you can't refrigerant from cans, to the high side)

Your competent auto shop will have an evacuator, and charts to show the proper amount of refrigerant.

Hey man if you cant respond to peoples questions professionally then dont try to answer them at all. i see alot of questions that you've answered like this. if you cant answer responsibly then i will have...


thanx for your advice. I took out the ICV (IDLE CONROL VALVE) and gave it a thorough cleaning,put it back in and sprayed half a can of intake cleaner through it running. The car starts much better and has way more pep off the line. It took me about an hour and cost under 10 bucks. I'm sure it would have cost hundreds at the stealership
