Question about Toyota 4Runner

1 Answer

G'day....I need help in a problem that has happened, I put to much oil in the engine of my 93 Hilux 2.8 Diesel and I drove abot 10 klms and the engine reved out severly and tonns of white smoke came from the exhaust and it would not turn off when I turned it off with the key, boy did I do a runner, it ran for nearly a minute before it turned itself off but it would not turn over when i tried to start it so I let it cool for about 40 minutes and it started again but now there is a knocking sound which seems like it is coming from the top front area of the motor, I drained the oil and there was very little metal shavings in the oil and I took the top off and the camshaft looks fine and no metal parts in that area, there doesn't seem to be any seal damage as there was no leaking when I checked in the morning the next day, the motor still turns over and starts fine no problem but the knocking sound is there and it will sometimes go away and come back after a few seconds and it is in time with the speed of the engine so if I rev it the knocking goes faster and gets louder and will sound for nearly 10 seconds then go away for about 5 seconds then come back, would anybody know what damage may have been done and could anybody please help as I am on a pension and am trying to fix this if I can, the knocking sounds like hitting a screwdriver on metal. Thankyou.....Colin

08 Petrol Hilux. stuck diesel in. it taken to mechanics they drained tanks, replaced fuel filter blew out lines and coolers had for a day engine light came on flat battery. Any ideas of problem??


If you realised it was diesel before you started to drive it probably wouldn't have taken long to rectify. Small amounts of diesel (or petrol in diesel) does not cause much of a problem and with care as much as 10% can be "got away with".

If you drove until it either stopped or was running so badly you couldn't proceed the problem becomes greater.

I doubt the mechanics removed the injectors and flushed them and so they probably kept cranking until the battery was almost discharged before the engine started.

The engine light fault will need checking with an obd scanner to discover the cause. Taking a wild guess it could be the oxygen sensor which is likely to complain bitterly about being bombarded with unburned and burning oil (diesel).

Good luck!

What is the engine oil capacity for a2014 hilux


I bought a Hilux 3.0 diesel last year, and it's just had it's 10k service at a little under 6 months, with no problems. However the dealer was saying it will need it's next service at 15,000Km which seems very early for a brand new diesel that isn't doing any real heavy towing or anything. I

Does a toyota hilux surf 1995 diesel have spark plugs and points as in the days of yore??


Diesel engines don't have spark plugs. They use compression and heat to fire the diesel. Most diesel engines have glow plugs which are designed to preheat the combustion chamber to help burn the diesel fuel when you start it up. Hope this helps.

2007 Escape oil pressure issue/oil pump


one thing to keep in mind that even though the vehicle is new you can still have major engine issues, because of the bearing material may have been bad at production.taking this in account any part on a vehicle can fail prematurely either because of poor insatllation or improper manufacturing. As far as oil filters are concerned bthe odds of mechanic installing the wrong filter are slim to none.the oil pressure sending unit only senses that here is oil flowing through it. it doesn't set the light off unless there is absolutely no pressure at all the only way to see the pressure is to have a gauge. oil prssure should be abot 45 psi at 2000 rpms. the only way a filter would effect oil pressure is if it was completely clogged. It would take a great deal of coolant in the oil to ruin a set of bearings and before that happens your vehicle would not run very well and you would notice a great amount of white smoke out the exaust. this would indicated either a blown head gasket.cracked head or a cracked block. you never mentioned what they found in the anaylasis of the oil. I presume that your vehicle is still under warrenty on the powertrain. I would suggest that you have the dealership check your oil pump out. every vehicle will have a small amount of metalic residue in the oil. large shavings and chunks of metal would be a worry. please rate this thanks.

Biofuel


It's possible your Hilux would run on that blend, but I don't believe Toyota would honor any warranty repairs (if you have any warranty). The cooking oil would have to be filtered to remove any particles, contaminants, or moisture before using it as these things would cause problems with your fuel system. Cooking oil will also gel up as the weather cools, so you would have to find a way to warm the oil to prevent that from happening. You would also have to find a way to keep the cooking oil and diesel fuel from separating.
