Question about 1993 Toyota 4Runner
Hiya, just having problems with my Toyota Hiace 93 model (Petrol). I've driven a few Hiace vans before and they seem to go ok over hills, but the new one which I have just bought seems to struggle going over the hill on 3rd gear, it gets weak to the point of almost conking out so I switch to 2nd gear and the hill isn't steep at all. I've only had the van for 1 week and i've only just come across this problem. But van is in excellent condition. I've changed battery as the other one was almost dead, done oil change, spark plugs look good and also tightened up the fan belt as it was loose and caused a lot of squeeking noise. Other problem is when you turn it on it seems to struggle abit, it seems to be very quiet when you turn it on and stalls if you don't give it a few revs when turning it on. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Regards, Quakez.
Well i think the piston ring are already loose, causing insufficient air compression leading to lower power especially on uphill tracks. check also for the air-fuel ratio! too much fuel usually is the cause for thick smoke emission; too much air, causes also less power.

I also have a similar problem but it is more a hesitation problem with my 94 hiace petrol. Same thing happens when I start mine up. If you don't give it some revs it will just stall. When going up hills it's as if the van is not getting enough fuel.. kind of cuts out and hesitates when you put too much load on the vehicle to the point where I have to back off the accelerator and then ease it back on to climb the rest of the hill. ( while dropping speed) Changed spark plugs, ignition leads and fuel filter. Going to pull apart the carby this weekend. I guess ill check the in tank fuel filter and pump next. Ill let you know how it go's.
