U need thave the compression tested and the affected spark plug threads checked, they are most likely damaged, a thread repair kit can be installed, so the fix won't be much more than $100 or so.

My toyota 4runner misfires.after sparkplug wires changed

Did this miss just start after plug change? If so it might be plug wires. RE: they might have been going bad and by putting new plugs in it just amplified the problem. You can test wires if you have access to ohm meter. Acceptable resistance is 6k ohms per foot of cable, anything over that replace them.

Missing under load, When accerating or climbing a hill my LOW milage 4runner is starting to miss. what could it be? Spark plugs or ?

Start with the simple things first. When was the last time you had a complete tune up? "Missing" could indicate bad spark plugs, bad spark plug wires, or bad cylinders. Change the plugs first, then go from there.

I'm looking for a vacuum diagram for a 1995 toyota 3.0 4runner 4wd. engine has a miss and nobody seems to be able to find it. it gets bad gas mileage and has almost no power.

You need to take to to a shop that does Toyota work, I would check the fuel pressure, and exhaust back pressure and find out why it has a miss.

I am trying to start my engine on my 1985 4runner it turns over but doesnt catch on.. what should I do..

'85's mostly had 4 cylinder engines, 22R, 22RE and 22REI. Remove a sparkplug wire and stick a sparkplug into the end. Hold the sparkplug, preferably with a well insulated glove, against a good metal part (exhaust manifiold will do, no paint or rust) nearby being carefull to stay clear of the fan. Now have someone turn the key and when the engine turns, see if a spark is jumping across the sparkplug your are holding...snap, what you should see and hear. If not, your ignition is not creating spark. Remove the center wire of the distributor and try to put the sparkplug on the end of that wire and repeat the previous test. If you get spark that means the distributor cap is not transferring the spark thru it to the wires that go down to your sparkplugs. Remove and replace the distributor cap and the rotor inside paying special attention to mark the wires and where they plug into the cap. The rotor only goes on one way, same with the cap. If you dont get spark coming to the center wire of the distributoe cap your ignitin module may be bad, a good time to have a shop run a test on it. Before heading to the shop, be sure to check your fuses. Maybe you should do that first as it is the simplest. If you have spark at the sparkplug and still no starting, a small amount of gasoline poured into the intake ( please dont pour a cup of gas into it! Just a spoonfull or so). With the sparkplug wires inplace, crank the motor. If it kicks and then goes back to cranking with no results, your fuel isnt getting to the intake. Could be a fuel pump (common) or a plugged fuel filter. The filter is easy, replace it. To test for fuel pressure you will need to locate the fuel line coming to the intake, carburated or injected, the inlet can be loosened and have someone turn the key on and you should see some fuel leaking around the fitting you only loosened. DO NO REMOVE IT-JUST LOOSEN. If you have fuel pressure your problem needs a mechanic. If no fuel pressure it's time to check the fuel pump thru the access panel under the backseat. BE SURE TO TIGHTEN THE INLET FUEL FITTING AT THIS POINT. Good luck.

1992 toyota 4runner sr5 v6 for starters it missed pretty bad

When removing plugs from now on use some anti sieze on the threads. Also when taking out a plug from an aluminum head and it started to get tight it is because of carbon build up on the threads. If it gets tight stop and run it back in to loosen the bind, then try and remove it again, repeat till the plug is out. This usually keeps the aluminum from siezing to the threads and having the problem you have. Most cars now use carbon core sparkplug wires to run the spark to the plugs. These can break and loose contact thru the core if they are old. Your vehicle probably uses a ECM to control engine functions, so you may have to play with them also to get the power back. Also check the clearances on the electronics inside the distributor, it it is running out due to wear them it also may cause you some operational problems also. Good Luck, RAC
