Question about 1993 Toyota 4Runner

1 Answer

Stalls while driving

I had the codes scanned and was told it was code 14.Six times the vehicle was started and 6 times the same code came up. The igniter to the ECM appears to be the problem but how do I troubleshoot it? Any information would be appreciated.

Try using an ignitor and/or ignition coil from a known good Forerunner.If it works replace the ignitor or coil.This code means the ECM or computer module is not getting anything from the ignitor or ignition coil.

Why does my 1996 C1500 w/t keep stalling while driving...I changed the fuel filter, new battery, new fuel pump, new spark plugs..and 1 new spark plug wire that was bad.


why not all spark plug wires, they dont last the life of any engine.
and cap and rotor.
finish the full 60,000 tuneup and dont skip parts. is this hard?

stalls can be caused by many a thing the EFI works real hard to stop all stalls, and does so very well in 1996, (not now, due to throttle by wire BS)
96 cars are the best cars ever made, all of them.
it has OBD2 scan tool support. making it 10x easier to fix.
ever used a scan tool even a $9 fleabay tool works 100% on 19965 cars. Get one.

Now we do stalls. (engine size stated so will use generic answers)
  1. Lost 12vdc to the EFI system. (see scan tool go, NON COMM, at stall? and dash lights go dim or head lights go dim? ) easy this.
  2. EGR valve stuck open (if you have one) is #1 cause of EFI stalls.
  3. next is never doing a real 60k tuneup ever. so common we like to use crying towels. really. so sad to watch the pull gas tanks and pumps all for the lack of simple tuneup and simple tools.
  4. Gross Misfiring, any mech can drive the car and hear it and feel it.
  5. loss of fuel pressure. (bogs then stalls and no misfire shaking)
  6. Gross flooding. (many causes, we look for black spark plug tips. and other scan tool tests. (fuel trim )
  7. Ever scan it for DTCs at the stall?
  8. Ever scan it ever? for any DTCs ever? of any kind?
  9. serious engine problems, lost compression. (any cylinders or all)
there are tests for each one.
we do engine first
spark then fue
after a real 60k tuneup and it stalls. still.

no fuel can burn with no spark
no spark can run a bad engine.

My Volvo S60 2002 stalls while driving


The problem could be a matter of the vehicle needing a tune-up, but to locate the problem the car's computer should scanned for trouble codes. These codes will identify the problem areas of the vehicle Auto Zone and Advance Auto will do a scan of the vehicle. Once you have the codes, they can be looked up on the web for more information. Then if you want, you can post your vehicle again on this site and list the codes. That way we can help you further.

You don't check O2 Sensors when cold,
they won't be operating or switching until
the computer goes into closed loop & converter
lights off at 600 degrees & continues to hopefully
around 900 to 1,100 degrees
Other than replacing a sensor, the only real
test I found of any value, is to watch switching
times on an oscilloscope
You can, as you said, look at scan tool data
Giving your vehicle is a 2003 & converters last
12 to 14 years, you know yours is worn out,doesn't
matter what the inspection gas results were & with
any codes, you should have been rejected & not tested
If you check fuel trim,you will see how well the MAF Sensor
is doing & you can't adjust fuel if the converter is not capable
of holding oxygen for the sensors to read
The front O2's get replaced on all vehicles at 100,000
when or before they slow down & fail

1995 BENZ S500 STARTS THEN STALLS


If the vehicles check engine light is on when it stalls, have it scanned to find problem code. auto-zone will scan for free as long as check engine light is on. but it sounds like a bad crank sensor, because it will shut down engine and not start till it cools down. it controls the fuel to injectors and engine timing. get it scanned !

Just bought a 93 Seville STS about a month ago, which ran great the first few weeks. But now, when i'm driving, it stalls & sputs like it's running out of gas even though the tank is full. When...


GM and Cadillacs Code 13 means Oxygen sensor circuit fault.

Its possible that your need to replace the sensor if have long time using.

Hope this helps.

My 2000 Ford Expedition Triton motor has a skip. It doesn't do it all the time. The code says #6 misfiring. Is this something we can do ourselves or do we need to take to a shop?


You obviously have access to a code scanner so there are some things you can rule out and possibly fix the concern. Number six cylinder on the Exdedition is on the drivers side of the engine, second cylinder from the front. To do a backyard diagnosis, you will need to clear the code. This is easily done by disconnecting the negative battery terminal for 5 minutes then reconnnecting (I'll explain why). Next, remove the ignition coil on the # six cylinder. It is located on top of the engine and has one connector going to it and one small bolt holding it down, and usually black in color. You are marking it so that you don't mix it up. Now remove the # five ignition coil and install it where number six was. Put the marked coil in the number five hole. Connect both connectors.

Now drive the vehicle and allow the engine lamp to come on or to skip (misfire) a few times. Scan the vehicle for codes. If the code changes to a P0305 or # five misfire, then you know the ignition coil is bad. Replace the marked coil, disconnect the battery again to clear the code, then drive the vehicle and verify the repair. Other concerns could be a spark plug, injector, base engine concern or wiring. Good luck, let me know if you need more help :o)
Coils are the most common cause of misfire, especially after rain.
