Question about 1986 Toyota 4Runner

1 Answer

I have a 1990 Toyota 4Runner automatic that is slipping between gears. The rpms go way up but does not accelerate as it should. I do not know if this is related but the stick is very loose. This started happening when we put transmission fluid in?!

Try changing the oil and filter, and /or the modulator valve. It is an automatic, right? I'm not sure what youmean by the "stick is very loose".

Toyota 4 runner, 1990. vibration


very possible
front drive shaft is the most likely as it does little work and the grease tends to dry out promoting wear
check all slip joints on both drive shafts as well as "u" joints
check engine mounts and front diff mounts as if they are broken , that will allow misalignment of the shaft angles

I drive a 1991 toyota v6 camry le and i can find out why it doesnt have any power (slow acceleration speeds) the RPMs go up to about 5k and still cant feel the acceleration in it.


1. If you have the check engine light on then the emission control could be doing this because of bad oxygen sensor(s).

2. Check the transmission fluid. If the level is low then the transfer case would not transfer all the power from the engine to the transmission.

Is it common for the gear on the distributor to slip down on the shaft of a 90 toyota 4runner. Timing belt not broke cam still turns? Distributor not turning when cranking. Gear looks to be oout of place...


You can tell upon removing the distributor and checking the teeth. They are machined all alike, even without any rounded edges or very sharp corners

My 2000 Toyota 4runner V6 125k miles automatic transmission started slipping on cold starts especially in the morning. After starting up, putting in drive and pressing the gas pedal first gear doesn't...


Low transmission fluid is usually the only reason power engages late or slippage occurs. But changing the transmission fluid again would not hurt. The stuff really shouldn't deteriorate like engine oil. Be sure to not run the vehicle many miles until the problem is completely resolved < 100 miles. One easy check would be to make sure the transmission lines are well connected and maintain pressure as well as fluid level. The good thing is that Toyota has a reputation of very good transmissions.
