Question about 1990 Toyota 4Runner

1 Answer

Gas pedal is tough.

I don't know if it's normal or not, but my gas pedal on my '94 toyota 4runner isn't easy to press on. I just bought it off Craiglist. My dad says it's no problem, but I'm the one that's going to be driving it. It's really tough to go faster than 65 on the freeway.
Any reason?

The accelerator cable may be frayed or caught on something. Check and make sure it is not binding on another part.

Usually when you press the gas pedal to the floor you are making the computer think the car is flooded with fuel and it shuts off the injectors.
Do you know if the engine is getting too much fuel ?

Turns off when going on reverse and when turning the wheel without pressing on the gas pedal

I know this might sound dumb, but it has happened to a lot of people - make sure your floor mat (not even a corner of it) isn't on top of the accelerator pedal. Even the slightest weight can cause the pedal to accelerate enough to be noticeable.
Not dumb, it's a good answer. The floor mat can slip forward (and has) in two of our new vehicles when we were driving on the highway. It had worked its way off the anchors and slipped forward, causing the vehicles to accelerate. I put the gearshift in Neutral, pulled off the highway and that was the problem, both times. I don't think it was on top of the gas pedal, underneath, but still pressing or I guess, pulling the pedal down.

All of these are good answers, but if it's an automatic transmission, it might be normal provided the engine performance is ok. Auto trannies have a torque converter stall speed. I have a 96 Cadillac Fleetwood and it will move on its own.

I have a 95 toyota 4runner v6 I replaced the head gasket,timing belt,my timings marks are were supposed to be reset my timing with a timing ligth to 10 btdc ,when it's in neutral it's revs to 5000...

I believe you are on the right track. Sure sounds like a timing issue to me. Lack of power with no back fire. You may have to get online or get a manual to verify your timing marks are in fact correct.

I have to press the gas pedal all the way to the floor for it to catch speed i can't jus normally press the pedal because it will not catch speed fast enough.

Sounds like it may need a tune up, you are not firing all cylinders...clogged fuel infectors, bad spark plug or cables

My 4runner will not take gas the pedal will not work total complete gas pedal failure.

Fly by wire?? No cable means there is modual next to the pedel and one on the throtle body. Either one may be bad. Just a start. Check into Toyotas recall as well.

1990 4Runner cuts out like its out of gas

The problem is most likely water. Water will pass through the filter just as easy as gas, so changing it wont help. You need to empty the gas tank completely and I mean like take the tank out dump the fuel and sediment and refill. cant do much about the water that is in the fuel rail and lines so your just going to have to put a little fuel in at a time and flush it out.
