Question about 1995 Toyota 4Runner

1 Answer

My 1995 Toyota 4runner has a knock.

My 1995 Toyota 4runner, 3.0L, has a knock in the left side of the engine..
At idle is knocks consistently, accelerating it knocks quieter and more sparatically. Driver claims noise started after he came out of driving through higher waters. We compression tested it, one was lower in compression, at lkie 105. We oil checked it and the compression rose to 135. Can you give me some idea as to what this problem might be?

I changed the knock sensor and pig tail on my 95 toyata 4runner awhile back. Ran better down the high way but had a really rough idle. So I changed the maf sensor now it won't idle at all.

You more than likely have a bad maf sensor ,take it back and exchange it for another one,or a different brand,maybe NAPA auto parts.
