What to change in a tune up for a 1990 toyota 4runner

The 1990 had points still or did it have the electronic ignition? There are only a few things to change on the electronic ignition. First the plugs have to go, get some Titanium tips in there, good for 100,000 miles, then some plug wires if you think it needs them, air filter, check all the fluids, coolant, brakes, power steering, battery water, tranny, if it has a dist with points, get a new cap and rotor and a set of points, gap them exactly to spec, or it won't run. run a can of stp through the fuel tank and clean out the injectors, or carb, the oil change doesn't come with a tune up, it comes automatically with the 3 to 5 thousand mile interval.

Brake warning lights stay on when i press the foot brake .the brake lights work ok .

You may just need to fill the brake resorvoir with brake fluid, when you are NOT pressing the pedal the fluid in the resovoir is low and the light comes on.

When you DO press the brake pedal you are forcing brake fluid level to go higher and this tells the sensor in the resovoir that the resovoir is full.

Transmission slipping and light is blinking

check the trans. fluid level. the procedure should be in your owners manual. if you cant find the procedure, a good default is to have it in neutral on a level surface with the parking brake on with the engine running. find the dipstick with "trans" or an icon of a gear on it. if it's low, add fluid. when you add fluid, add about a half a quart at a time. and after every time you add, get in, put your foot on the brake and shift back and forth from park to reverse to neutral, to drive a few times, slowly. if you're unsure of what type of fluid to use, ask the boys at the parts counter. if your fluid is not pink/clear red, you're in trouble. if it's brown, dirty, or has flakes in it, your trans is junk.

Soft brakes

Poor brakes

You mean brake load sensor.
Usually by the back axle. It spreads the braking evenly between front and rear brakes.
When did you last change the brake fluid. It is hygroscopic(attracts water).
When it is contaminated with water it makes your brakes fade very quickly.

Need to change brake fluid

Open the bleeder on the right rear wheel and depress the brake pedal numerous times until all fluid is drained. Refill the master cylinder and then start the bleeding process. Bleed right rear, left rear, right front, and finally the left front. Be sure to keep an eye on the fluid level in the master cylinder as you dont want it to drain too far down.

1990 F150 4X4 - convert power brakes to manual

you will need a manual brake master cylinder, and maybe manual brake wheel cylinders in the rear if they are different. However, I don't think we offered manual beakes in 1990, only power brakes.
