94 toyota engine noise

Have a compression test done including a second test using a squirt of oil (to seal rings) to get some idea of the engine condition. The mileage suggests that the motor may need a rebuild but a compression test will decide that. The tapping noise may be hydraulic followers that are worn out and the cam shaft bushes may be suspect. Find an accredited Toyota mechanic (Not any old garage mechanic) and think about what he says . If the compression readings are around 120psi and go up after the oil to say 130psi then a motor is out of the question and it may be just wear in the over head gear.

My ol ladys car a 96 cavalier always burnt about a.25 to a1/2 quart of oil a week. it never leaked at all .well recently im thinkin it might be about to throw a rod. it taps real bad ,lost some power,but...

if when you took the lead off the plug the tapping stopped then it must be a small end(big ends knock)lack of compression would stop sudden downward pressure on bearing hence no tap.
As you are using oil it would be more cost effective to rebuild the whole engine,it would mean that you only take the thing out once......

Are the parts from a 1990 toyota 4 runner interchangeable with a 1991 4 runner? I'm not looking to swap the engine, just the exhaust system, power window motors and such.

most parts from 90-95 will interchange. also, alot of parts from the pickups during those years are interchangeable with the 4runner.

Heater not getting hot for a 1999 toyota 4runner

the heater switches in the 4 runners can someetimes get jammed because of corrosion inside the tap itself the easyest way to see if its jammed is to locate it behind the engine down near the firewall you will see two hoses running through the wall and one of these will have a tap . looks like a plastic fitting with either a rod with an actuator aarm or vacumm line running to it . witht the engine up to running temperature and the heater on check the side of the tap that runs to the engine for heat . if is cold then the tap is jammed closed . if its hot then you may have a blocked heater core

What is the brand/model of the stock spark plug for an 04 V6 4 runner? Heat range? Gap?

Toyota generally uses ND (Nippondenso) paltinum spark plugs. If you want to waste $20.00 each at the Toyota dealer then so be it, I put NGK's or Bosch plugs in my Toyota's, Honda's they're generally alot cheaper and just as durable may'be better.
