Question about 1985 Toyota Pickup

Open Question

Have an 85 toyota 4x4,with a carborated 22r.had a electrical short a couple months ago.replaced lots of bulbs and some fuses,also the igniter/coil assembly.having much more electrical problems since putting in the new/used igniter.just smoked a good battery(due to overcharging while driving) and also what i thought was a good alternater and IC regulator(voltage regulator).have you ever heard of a 85 non efi igniter working to allow the engine to run but contributing to or causing other electrical problems or component failures. yeah and when I first got the igniter in the mail the plug that goes to the pickup coil inside the distibuter was cut,i spliced it in with some soderless connectors.however the external ground wire that wraps around the two conductors for the pickup coil does not extend the full length of the harness.if any one has had a simaliar issue or thinks they have an idea please email.I do realize this could also be dividends being paid to the first original electrical short,just want to try an avoid replacing parts just to burn them back up.

I got a 87 toyota pickup 4x4 22r replace distributor cap rotor plugs wires ignitor and coil and it get sparks when it first turns over then stops getting spark


Would need mo info.When does it stop. If it has spark when cranking but not as soon and key comes out of start position you'll need to look at it as an coil power problem. Need to see if it is getting power when Ignition switch is in run position. Since the coil ground is controlled to make spark, there should always be 12 volts to the coil when switch is in run position. Some older cars, the starter solenoid provides power to the coil when cranking and the ignition switch takes over in run position.

How to fix a timing chain rattle on a 85-94 Toyota 22R engine


Toyota 22R 1985-94 85- Celica, P.U., Four runner.

There are two basic different 20-21-22r engines, and three different timing chain setups. The early tall block 20-22r block used a dual row chain with steel backed rubber faced guides, the 83-84 22r used a single row chain with plastic guides and short step bolts, then came the final setup, a shorter block, thinner head, combustion chamber with a large squish area, nearly flat pistons, and pear shaped exhaust ports. It has a single row chain, with plastic guides with long step bolts on the left (drivers side) and short step bolts on the right holding the guides on. On this last 22R there is high incidence of guide failure, usually starting with the long straighter left guide breaking, allowing the chain to rattle against the timing cover in the area where the coolant passes through to the water pump, eventually wearing through and letting coolant into the crankcase. Upon inspection we find the chain is loose when installed, the tensioner is close to half way out on a new engine.

If we use a right side, curved guide and
short step bolts from an 83-84 and a prestretched timing chain, it goes together tight, the tensioner is fully retracted making the whole setup have less play, and less chance to rattle and break the left guide. I've never seen this setup fail, oil leaks from using sealant around the oil ports on the right side have been tough, but using the factory gasket on this side seems to work, also the felpro with printed seal in this area seem to work well.

This is critical if the block and head have been surfaced, making the chain even looser.

Hope this helps

My 2000 Toyota Camry am2 fuse blows when I turn ignition on


If the IGN fuse is not also burned, likely there is a shorted ignition coil or grounded ignition coil power wire. If the IGN fuse is burned then look for a possible shorted light bulb

My hilux won't start keeps blowing the ignition fuse when turning the key on


that is a dead short, the fuse saved you the ensuing fire.
there are 2 fuses or more... with that name..
old cars love to short things, no lie.
the fsm is the best thing to have, and alldata.com , 2nd.
the older that car the more true that is... and your car is 10x that.
a 1991
is the fuse in the cab BOX? NOT ENGINE BAY?
THE CAB FUSE , HAS these (USA cars, other are DIFFERENT)
no country stated (sigh)
ignition sw AM1
ignition sw AM2
ignitor 1
ignition coil (1 for 4cy, and 1 for v6 engine, unsaid)
on one car there is a IGN fuse 7.5 amps
and runs the ECU and main relay.
there are 3 engines, and drawing for all 3.

get the fsm and use that or login to alldata.com and hope
it covers your engine. (unstated)

Where can find a fuse panel diagram for a 1986


You should be able to find a fuse panel diagram in the back of any repair manual(Haynes) which you can get at any auto parts store. The fuse panel in the glove box is for your fan and air conditioning. The other fuse panels are general. Your truck should be a 22r carborated motor unless altered.

1997 Crown Vic blows radio fuses


The quickest way to find a short circuit is by putting a bulb in place of the fuse. Anytime the time the bulb lights there is a load. And if the load is a shorted wire the brightness of the bulb will give you a hint. So while you're at it, finding a 'short' is a quicky...keep your eyes on the bulb. gotcha!
