Replacing heater blower motor

I just bought an '84 Toyota pickup, 22R engine. The guy said that the heater blower motor probably needed to be replaced, because it only worked in the low position. The first day, even leaving the switch in Low, the heat would be fine after driving a few miles. Now I get no heat (1 week later). There is no air flow, so I am thinking the blower motor or the switch finally went bad. When changing position of the heater switch, I can here a click in the dash when going from the off position to the low position, but there is still no air flow (with the ducts in any position). so I want to replace the blower motor, but how do I check the switch, and how do I get the dash off?

    Thanks guys for all of the help. I replaced the motor over Christmas (it was really easy) and it works great now.

    For anyone wondering how to replace the heater blower motor:
    Remove two screws on bottom of front face of glove box
    Remove Glove box
    Heater is just behind the glove box on the right side (the motor points downward and the fan is in a big round shroud).
    Un plug the cable bundles that get in the way of removing the blower moter (the motor will come straight down).
    There are three bolts holding the blower assembly in place, remove them and the blower assembly can be removed (pull downward).

    The replacement motor I got at Advanced (like $43) was a bidirectional motor, so the leads for the motor were not in a connector like the original motor (no big deal). I hooked the black wire from the new motor up to the connector were the wire with the line on it (from the truck) was and the red wire from the motor to the solid colored wire from the truck (the wires from the motor had leads that you could slide into the connector from the truck). It works great now.

    I was hoping that it wasn't the resistor, because then I would have had to wait a couple more days for the resistor (more days with no heat).

    Look for the HEATER fuse, under the dash, on the left of the glove box. See if it is blown.

This is not a problem with thw switch or motor. There is a resistor that is mounted inside the dash on the pasenger side that controls the speed of the blwer..these have a tendency to burn up after 10 years or so... replace the resistor, and you will be fine!

1984 toyota pickup, runs great but heater blower will not come on; even after turning the selector switch from high to low. Additionally, playing with the switch on day the blower came on but now no-it will not come on. I have checked the fuse (20 amps) and can hear the relay click when the selector switch is moved from high to low.

Help -Could it be the blower or a electrical short?

SOURCE: replacing broken belts 1990 toyota pickup

I found that it is embarrassingly obvious once you get the parts and place them in position. Each belt only fits the appropriate pulley in width and length. When the belt breaks there's no visual reference (as one would have if he replaced the belts before they broke!) if the belt diagram is worn off the hood. Lesson learned; replace belts- a simple task- before they break!

SOURCE: Check Engine Light, VSC and Traction Control Off Light, came on after oil and filter change

obviously they did disconnect a sensor while they were working on your vehicle.this will set a code in your vehicle's computer.They call this a soft code since there was not a failure but it just did not sense a signal.After reconnecting it clears the code after so many ignition cycles,meaning turning the key on and off so many times.The code is stored in the computer so it would be a good idea to take it to the dealer to check it out and make sure there are no other problems

SOURCE: Toyota Corolla DX 97 Engine Light EGR valve PLEASE HELP

You can try cleaning the EGR valve and passages with Seafoam. A bottle costs just a few dollars at any auto parts store or discount store. With the engine running, squirt/spray it in through the brake booster hose, or through the PCV hose. This will cause smoke to come out the exhaust. This is normal and will disappear after a few minutes. If Seafoam does not do the trick, then you can still disassemble the EGR valve from the throttle body and clean it with throttle body cleaner.

No. Your troubles are carburator related. Since you have no way of knowing what "some guy" did inside your carb you will likely have to take it to a shop that specializes in that kind of work. They may be able to adjust it so it works properly but it will probably have to be rebuilt again. Carburators are like a high maintenance girlfriend, very unforgiving if not treated just right. Hope this helps.

Diesel engines work under heat of compression meaning that when the fuel is injected into the cylinder and is compressed during the compression stroke in the cylinder it heats up untill it fires.
If the engine is now starting and you are letting the glow plug on for the reccommended amount of time than yes i would consider getting a glow plug that has a higher temperature range on it.
also you can get fuel heaters this is what we use on all of our big rigs they are better know as pre heaters they work very well when the temperatures are very cold and of course a block heater works well too ok
I hope that this is very helpful for you.
Best regards michael

Need to change engines

If you have a 22r carbed then all 22r carbed engines from 1981-1995 will interchange. You may need to use sensor out of your old engine however. The 20r,22r,22re,22ret all have the same mounts and tranny bolt patterns. how ever there are lot of differences. you can swap from a 22r to a 22re but you must also swap the entire vehical wiring harness to do it right. if you have a 3.0L i would keep the same engine. some people have swap to the tacoma 3.6L but that is a expensive swap not exsactly bolt on so to say. If you have a 22re then stay with the 1986-1987 22re because the newer 22re use different computers, electronics ,sensors and more.. Same story with the 22ret. I hoped this helped.
