Question about Toyota Land Cruiser

1 Answer

The car's peformance has been poor, especially on picking from a stationary position (no power).

After recently buying a 1991 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado, Diesel Turbo LE Automatic, Stationwagon it started giving me the following problems: 1. Just cranked but couldnt start (kick-start) the engine. 2. My mechanic identified the problem to be on the original automatic fuel pump (lack of diesel flow) which was replaced with a manual one since we couldnt get the automatic one. 3. Overheating followed after cracks were found on the cylinder-head when he eventually started the car. 4. I bought a new cylinder-head and gasket and my mechanic reassembled the engine and handed me over the car 5. But the car's peformance has been poor, especially on picking from a stationary position (no power). Goes up to speeds of only 80-100 kms. 6. It's got a very high fuel consuption. 7. Dicharges high gas emissions (lots of smokes from exhaust). 8. Consumes lots of diesel oil.

I would suggest to have the pump timing reset and probably have a diesel specialist to check the pump as well. It is very difficult to give extra help over the net as most of the things have been covered by the mechanic I supposed. But as per your description I think the pump may have not been timed properly or it may need overhauling as well.
Cheers

I have 1991 toyota land cruiser where's the fuel


I have always known the fuel filter to be attached to the fire wall inside the engine compartment at the rear of the engine . It will be a tin can about jam tin size with 2 or 3 pipes in the head piece.

Ringing sound on a Toyota Land Cruiser SX 2L Turbo 1991 Model


noise producers on vehicles include the worn brake pad indicator that rubs on the disc when the pads are dangerously low , loose seal shields on the diff pinions , tail shaft noise from failing bearings , "U" joints , center bearing supports and shields for that bearing touching the support bracket from failed bearing rubber mount
if is only heard when moving ,what I am suggesting that everything that turns has to be carefully inspected
for example a bit of rock stuck between the diff flange seal shield and the diff housing will create a noise that is amplified by the tail shaft
