Question about 1998 Toyota 4Runner

1 Answer

98 4Runner w/ 3.4L 4X4. Was sitting at a stop light and it just quit. It has 142,000 miles on it. All maintenance is performed by self. Restarted the vehicle and it stopped again. Tried restrating and it took two times of it turning over before it started. Then after I got it started and turned around to go back home it died as I was driving. This time it was very difficult to start. Not sure what this could be. Any help would be greatly appreciative.

Check the Fuel filter, And Also Check the Fuel Pressure for what your 4 Runner calls for, Not to mention Did you Buy Cheap gas for a Gas station that you Normally Dont use? Might have Watered down gas..

A Stupid But Sometime working Item is to Tap the Fuel Filter a few times with the back of a Screw driver to knock the "Dirt" in the Filter around and see if it start as normal,

If So Replace the Filter, But at 142,000 your about Due for a Fuel Pump..

Warning light wrench comes on after driving a couple miles but will go off with reset.


It indicates some kind of problem exists or some kind of maintenance is due.

Series II 4.0 litre V8 Land Rover Discovery runs but stalls out after a few miles. The vehicle restarts after cooling down it seems. This generally takes a couple of hours or a tow back home. Service


Sounds like the same issue I had with my 2002 Discovery 2 V8. Mine used to run for about 10 minutes, then die, usually in the most inconvenient locations! The Crank sensor is in need of replacement. It sits near the exhaust downpipe (behind a heat shield) but obviously this shield isn't enough as they die after about 80,000-100,000 miles. Just get it replaced and I think your issues will solved.

Maintenance Required message on. Purchased


this light can come on even thought service is not actually due. if the service was performed and the light was not on at the time, sometimes you cannot reset them if they are not actually lit, or 99% of the time the technician forgets if the light was not on. stop by your shop and they can reset it for you in just a few moments, and for no charge. good luck!

Sounds like the Coolant is not full and has a air bubble. It is very important to have the system filled complete. That would be the first step.Good luck and have a great day.

There is a maintenance light on with an exclamation point. What does this mean


It reminds you to do your 'regular scheduled maintenance' of your car.
Example: 50,000-miles, 70,000-miles, 100,000-miles, etc. These warnings are already programmed in your car's computers to simply remind you so the car is kept in top shape, and peak performance.
In some cases, if this maintenance warning is ignored, the car may not keep its peak performance or even break down, having to be towed.
The concerned car's authorized dealer usual performs these regularly scheduled maintenance, but competent independent auto repair shops, such as Midas, are able to do these reagular maintenance as well.

Hello;
Check your fuel pressure. Sounds like the pump is going away on you. Also change your fuel filter. Fuel pump is in the tank, filter is on the frame rail. Hope this helps; rate me highly.
Thanks;

We have a different year but most of these warnings are reset the same way the trp odometer is done; press and hold one or the other buttons related to the display until it changes.
