Question about 1996 Toyota T100

1 Answer


I have my check engine light on in my 1996 toyota t100. My buddy is a mechanic and he hooked up a scanner to the truck, it came back with a problem in cylnder number 3. About a year I had changed the spark plugs and in that cylner number 3 the plug was froze in their, so i lubed it up and got it out. My deal now is that it possibly froze again. I took off the air filter and noticed that an oily substance was in the hose going into the throttle body as well. What should I do, my buddy is not willing to drive to help me, so I am SOL.... I NEED EXPERT ADVICE PLEASE....and also is thier a way after I get the problem fixed to turn off the check engine light... THANKS AND PLEASE!

Clean out the throttle body with carburetor can buy in an air rissol can.Reason for plug freezing you have water entering the threads.Possable slight head gasket leak into number three,Try Disconnecting the battery and leave off overnight to see if that turns of the check light.If not get it cleared by a garage for a small price.

If there is a "Check Engine" light illuminated, read the codes out to get an idea of the nature of the misfire. If there is no "Check Engine" light, begin by checking for fuel pressure / fuel delivery issues.

Check engine light flashes once then 5times

It sounds like a code. reffer to this discussion about it. you can either count the blinks or take the vehicle to your local autozone and have them hook up a code reader and let you know what the problem is.

The speedometer cable on 1994 toyota t100 is not working. can this cause check engine light to come on

This vehicle is equipped with speed sensors instead of a cable. If your speed sensor is faulty it will cause the speedometer to malfunction, and the "check engine indicator" to light up. I would still recommend having the vehicle's computer scanned for the error code stored, signaling the check engine light.

Check engine light comes on?

Not much info but most all auto stores will hook your truck up for free and tell you the code the check engine light is giving. Once you have the code they can tell you what the error is.

1996 Toyota t100 check engine light on. Changed spark plugs and wires. No difference in sluggish running and light is still on

What codes do you have?
You start with the check light issues first

I just parted with a truck, I had over 18 years with OE Plug wires,
one before 17 years ,and my current one, 20 years,I have owned it 27
Had one wire burn out near plug in 1990

Plugs never misfire by design,they do however wear the electrodes,
which stresses ignition modules
