SOURCE: A/C light blinks and compressor stops working

It could be correct, However when that light flashes it mean that the system have a problem for example "system pressure low" or High. Its possible that the system have a leak in it and thats why the light may have come back on again. What you need to do is have the system check for leaks with an ultra violet light and dye. Good Luck

SOURCE: 2003 toyota 4runner AC not working

An occasional problem on this vehicle is the A/C Compressor Clutch Relay. Failure of the A/C Compressor Clutch Relay will cause the A/C light to flash when the A/C is turned on and the A/C will not cool.

SOURCE: Black smoke coming from my 97 Toyota corolla

The black smoke is a sign of excessive gasoline not burning completely, there is a wide range of probabilities that may be causing this to happen my best advise would be to have it diagnosed with a scanner, otherwise you could spend a lot of money replacing "probable" malfunctioning parts till you find the one that was broken (eg: EGR valve, MAF, coils, injectors, etc.) good luck

2002 toyota sequoia ac light blinking

You would need the shop manual to get the wiring diagrams to trace the circuit. I'm surprised Pep Boys did not go ahead and do the work.
You have to back-track from the compressor clutch to find out where the power is stopping and why.

2004 Toyota Sequoia AC Light Blinking

when you fit a compressor . after vacuuming the system for about an hour, you connect the gas up to the suction port and let the gas in
with the engine running and the ac switched on , when there is enough in the system the low pressure switch is turned on and the compressor starts to run sucking in more gas
The system is charged according to pressure gauges and not by the number of cans
now you are doing several things wrong
1-- there are 2 types of gas and if you used a wrong replacement unit , it will not handle the high pressures of the different gas
2-- if you used the no of cans method -- then liquid freon gets to the pistons in the compressor and hydraulic locks the system resulting in the destruction you describe
3--- did you put oil in the compressor before fitting it
as the oil circulates with the gas and there was no oil i the replacement compressor , then the plate runs dry and seizes , again causing destruction
the best method is to get an accredited ac professional to do the job or it will cost you more money

At how many miles should my timing belt be changed on my 2004 sequoia?

HI- Most manufacturers reccomend replacement at 90k, 180k, etc. Variables include other parts that may need replacing during these belt changes. Water pumps and timing belts should be purchased from the DEALERSHIP, regardless of who does work. This is proper, normal cost of maintaining your sequoia. Complete inspections and labor should be completed by mechanic familiar w/Toyota vehicles. Parts may run 150-250$. Labor depends on who ya know.- Hope this helps- Thanks- ED

Rear tailgate will not close because latch is not locking on 2004 Toyota Sequoia

You either have a rusted latch assembly, or a seized latch release cable, which connects to the release handle. Either can be the cause, this is a very common failure., Try some WD-40 on the latch, and see if you can work it with a screwdriver. If that does not help, you will need to replace the release cable.
