Question about Cars & Trucks
I have a 1996 Toyota 4Runner manual 4x4. I was driving home when the gas like became solid and I was about 5 miles from my house. When I got home and pulled into the drive way it was running fine. when I got in it to go get gas it would turn over but never crank. i tried to crank it several times and nothing happened. I pulled a gas line off in front of the filter and gas would come through but its not getting to the cylinders or to the injectors. What is wrong?

Change your fuel filter, it may have gone it's life time and is getting to dirty to let fuel flow properly. Your fuel pump to may be getting weak, if the fuel filter is dirty the pump works harder and heats up and could be over heating the fuel pump relay too. The fuel pump relay i believe is in the glove box behind a panel that say relay, there should be (3) in there and the middle one is the fuel pump's. switch then around after you change the fuel filter and if you get a chance, check your fuel pressure at the shredder valve. Good luck and hope this help's if there is a Auto Zone around you, you can ask to use the fuel pressure gauge to see what fuel pressure you have and they'll have the step by step instructions on how to do it and takes about 5 min to do and will have the fuel filter and step by step to replace that too. Keep me posted, be glad to help.
