Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Some one please help. i have a 2009 Toyota tacoma trd off road access cab automatic. I was driving down the highway with a semi in front of me. I was doing about 90kmh. I went to pass an got the truck up to 110kmh. at this time I was along side the semi. another car turned on the road an was comeing towards me. I had lots of time to make in front of the semi but I pined the gas to the floor. the truck went to about 115kmh then the traction control activated. the road was dry an was warm out. I no there's no way in hell my truck would spin the tires at 115kmh. it's a V6!!! I also just put 20x10 rims with 33x12.5 toyo Mt's on it. I don't no if it's my tranny slipping or if it's a sensor messed up. any input would be great. I don't really want to spend a few $1000.00 on trying to figure out it's just a sensor. thanks

I think the sensors detected slippage at that speed.

SOURCE: No power,

My truck did the same thing. I changed the plugs with the ones the parts store recommended and it still acted gutless. Then I took it to the toyota dealership and they told me the plugs were not the right ones. So make sure you have the right plugs with a couple different parts store. i guess there sensitive and not just any plugs will work. Do it yourself though cause the dealership will rape you.

SOURCE: 2005 GMC Yukon Denali - Traction Control issue

your problem is the front wheel speed sensor. I had the same problem on my 2004 Denali. The GMC dealer felt there was nothing wrong, no codes. I replaced both from wheel sensors (about $75 each on Ebay) and the problem is fixed. The passenger sensor had a crack in it. I saw this solution on a discussion chat. There was a TSB for the 2002 pickup trucks with the same problem. Hope this helps.

I would start the engine and let it warm up. Once it is warm spray some WD-40 around the intake manifold gaskets and around all vacuum lines and fitting you can get to. If you hear the engine start to stumble, concentrate the spray on that area until you are able to pinpoint the fault.

SOURCE: traction control

This light will come on everytime you loose traction.The computer on the car puts stopping pressure on the tire that is slipping until the slipping is stopped and the correction made.

How do I beaf up my suspension on a 05 Toyota Tacoma


I would suggest an aftermarket add on. There are helper/overload springs that you can install yourself. They are cambered leafs that fit over the axle with contact points on each end that won't touch the existing leaf springs until you are loaded, at that point the 2 contact points will touch the existing springs and assume some of the load. When this occurs, naturally it will affect the ride of the truck, but when you are not loaded, your ride will be unaltered.

2006 Toyota Tacoma Low Mileage or Not...Spark Plug Life


24 mpg on the highway is actually pretty good for that truck. at 48000 miles and being 3 years old its time for plugs, air filter, and fuel filter if available. thats cheap maintenance for now. but if very self conscious, run some fuel injector cleaner first, then change the plugs, because any octane booster or fuel injector cleaner can run the risk of fouling out a plug, by creating a hotter spark then what, normal gas does. the burn is hotter.

Engine Light On


At first it will cost you from $60-70 (Midas) to nothing if you go to the nearest parts store (you need to call them and ask if they do it for free, I can suggest Autozone) and do the computer diagnostic of your car to get the malfunction codes. After you get the codes you can call the repair shops and get the estimate. But first you can try to do to change the gas station and use a fuel injector cleaner (form $1 to $6 in Walmart).
Good Luck
