Question about Toyota Cars & Trucks
Posted by Anonymous on
Is the battery in a good condition, it a diesel engine? If so the glow plugs would be the first point of call. Check for power at the glow plug main wire feed, if you have power there then a wiring fault can be ruled out. If not check your glow plug relay and associated wiring. If you have power, I think from memory its only 11 volts, remove the power balance rod that runs across the top of your glow plugs. Then remove the glow plugs and connect them across a battery hold the threaded body of the glow plugs and the negitive terminal and use a piece of wire to connect the small fine threaded end to the positive terminal on the battery. The glow plug should glow a hot bright red within a few seconds of being connected. If it doesnt it is faulty. 1 faulty glow plug puts strain on the other glow plugs. Id replace all 4 if any are faulty. I hope this helps.
