Question about 1993 Toyota 4Runner

1 Answer

Starts but won't stay running

I ave a '95 Toyota 4-Runner that Iam having problems with. I replaced the Battery and Alternator which were both bad. It will start but it runs for about 4 seconds and then it shuts down, and then the Battery Light and Check Engine light go on. Have double checked everything and now wondering if New Alternator is bad.

    Same thing happen to me when I forgot to hook up the Air Flow Sensor. Maybe something was left unplugged.

My 4 runner starts sometimes and won't other times, it justs cranks over but won't run


As with any no start issue, you will need to check for spark and fuel pressure when it won't start to know how to proceed.

Is there a starter fuse on a 86 buick park ave


May be a starter fuse - but if blown, starter will not rotate engine. More likely a fuel starvation problem. Replace fuel filter in gas line - first choice. Next, have fuel pump pressure checked. If it has failed, you will get 4 -5 seconds of engine run before stopping.

Toyota four runner 95 v6 it doesnt start makes clicking sound in the engine?


if your battery is fully charged, then your starter celliniod contact is probably worn out.

you can remove your starter and have it tested at an alternator/starter specialty repair/rebuild shop. if the cellinoid or cellinoid contact tests bad, then you can replace either of those for just a few dollars.

if the entire starter tests bad, then you can usually have it rebuilt for around $100.

Start up issues


Take your starter off and have it checked out. Sounds like it's taking too much power, and possibly killing your battery. A bad starter will drain your battery when the vehicle isn't running.

96 toyota 4 runner won't run


try replacing your fuel filter and spark plugs, engine pinging results from a lower octane than recomended by the manufacturer and dirty gas being burned inside the combustion chamber. good luck!

1997 toyota 4-runner, My battery dash light is on. The battery is good.


The battery light on at the dash indicates a problem internal in the alternator. Normally, when the alternator is producing sufficient voltage (14.4 VDC), the light stays off. When the alternator is NOT producing sufficient voltage, the light comes on. Check the voltage at the battery with a voltmenter with the engine running. If you have less than 12 volts, you both need an alternator.
