SOURCE: 1991 toyota pickup fuel and temp gauges dont work

You might have a bad ground. According to my Haynes manual's wiring diagram, both gauges share the same ground and typically that is "located on the left side of the instrument panel", wherever that is. Sorry I can't be more specific about the location. While it may not be true on your vehicle (the wiring diagram states "typical late model" in its description), my wiring diagram says that the ground wire is Brown (BR). You might try locating that wire and track it to its attachment point. You also might try tapping into it and using a continuity tester and ground out the wire to metal (there's plenty of grounding points under there). Make sure the ignition key is off!! There might be a bad ground wire closer to the meters than the attachment point. Hope this is helpful. Allow plenty of time if you're going to investigate this yourself. Do you have other gauges? Do they work? I think that all of the gauges are ganged through the same fuse (but not through the same ground wire). You might consider checking the fuse to ensure that it's OK. Your owners manual that came with the truck will tell you which fuse is it. If there are other things on the same fuse and they work, it's not the fuse. I hope that this is helpful.

SOURCE: 1993 TOYOTA PICKUP (V6) TEMPERATURE PROBLEM

the trans will not allow overdrive until coolant reaches roughly 180 degrees, if the guage shows cool and the trans is not upshifting, or downshifts to third while driving. the problem is either a sticking (or missing) thermostat. follow the lower radiator hose to the engine and find the three 12mm nuts, remove these to get to it. a new toyota t-stat will have a little bleed valve on its face. position it upwards when installing. hope this is helpful.

Check all fuses with a test light. If all good, you will need to diagnose each circuit. Look for the temperature sensor, disconnect connector, ground test light and touch wire. Check to see if the gauge move. If it does, you will need a new sensor. Basically the test is the same for fuel gauge. Disconnect connector at the fuel tank and touch contact and see if gauge move. If it does, the sending more than likely is at fault. Make sure you test each wire as there will be a few. Use proper jack stands anytime you work under a car! Let me know your progress.

SOURCE: just replaced thermostat and still no heat and

Warm up the truck touch both heater hoses about midway in the hose . If one is hot the other cold you have no waterflow through the heater core. check the heater control valve it will be a valve in one of the heater hoses. usually cable or vacuum operated. make sure that valve is opening. if not, manually open it may be necessary to tie open to see if you have heat and if you get heat. If you do get heat determine wheather you need a new (control valve or cable or vacuum hoses. If you still have no heat chek the blend air door inside under the dash this is the door that changes the airflow direction from AC to heat it may not be working properly. Hope this helps.

1992 toyota tacoma v6 4wd overheats but temp gauge says normal, stuck thermostat?


thermostat is a good place to start. But be sure to replace that temp sensor too. If that doesnt work you can flush the radiator bad case replace the water pump. Worst case absolutely would be head gasket.

Seems to me like you have a faulty temp" sensor. Try replacing that. It should be located on your head next to your water neck.

1994 toyota pickup v6 overheating


Make sure your cooling fan is working properly. Start it up and let it idle. When the temp goes up on gauge make sure it kicks in. If it does then you should try changing your thermostat. I may be stuck in a closed position or not opening enough to let the right amount of coolant to pass though to cool your engine.

No heat coming from heat vents, blower works. i have change thermostat still no heat


Make sure the cooling system is full ... they can run with low coolant and not have it show on the temp gauge. Make sure the heater temp control actual opens the valve the controls the flow of coolant to the heater.

I have a 94 toyota v6 pickup, just replaced the radiator. topped off coolant, ran for approx 10 mins. temp gauge move to nomal operating temp. then turned on a/c to put a load on it, the temp then went up....


Did you recheck the water level at the radiator filler cap after the engine was at normal temperature (ie after about 15 mins idling with heater control on full and fan on Low) because it sounds like there is an air lock in the system. Air lock should clear after thermostat starts to open. This is indicated by the top radiator hose becoming hot to touch.
