Question about 1994 Toyota Land Cruiser

2 Answers

Unsure what the ECT button is

Hi I have a 94 VX Ltd landcruiser and was wondering what the ECT button on the dash is and what it does. I know a lot of other people with earlier VX landcruisers and they do not seem to have this function.

Regards Jonny

ECT power is an option that allows you to make the transmission stay in a lower gear for a longer period of time to allow the engine to "wind out" more. the higher the RPM for any given gear, the more power you can get to the wheels. it makes for quicker acceleration if the trans. shifts later.

Hi - I wanted to buy oil for my 94 landcruiser and was wondering what kind I should get. The manual recommends 10W30, but I can not find whether it should be synthetic or not?


Of course synthetic is better, but it seems to me that regular oil is fine, and you need to change is often enough to get rid of water and acids, so that you don't really need synthetic.
Personally I also prefer 10W40, because it holds up better on heavy wear, like on the camshaft. But 10W30 gets slightly better mileage.

Differetial locks for 94 land cruiser


91-97 Land Cruisers had a factory option for front and rear locking differentials. This is a seperate switch and is usually located to the left of US model Land Cruisers. The center dash button locks your transfer case differential changing your Land Cruiser from all wheel drive to four wheel drive depending if you have ABS or not this button either says ECT or Center Dif Lock. If you do not have the Front/Rear locking differential option then your Land Cruiser has open Front and Rear. Hope this answers your question.

95 Landcruiser Turbo warning light comes on under heavy load


If you are "lugging" the engine, you will get increased exhaust temperature (EGT), this will trigger your "turbo" light(not a good thing), ideally you should have an aftermarket "pyrometer" fitted to your car, this will show you the optimum revs etc you should be using in any given circumstance.Or revise your driving technique, ie change down gears earlier.
The turbo should be idled down after long trips or heavy towing, this allows the oil temps to stabilise and turbine speeds to stabilise, thus idle for 2-5 minutes.

Battery charge spiked up on 1994 jeep grand cherokee ltd.


check the battery cable connections, are they clean and tight? This can cause the charging system to spike and go into the 16-17 volt range, the other thing is a problem with either the alternator or the voltage regulator, a diode that is failing can cause this issue.
