Question about Toyota 4Runner

1 Answer

My girl just bought a 1993 Toyota 4Runner 3.0L; I'm a Ford/Diesel guy so while the same, not! Overheating, blow the line going into the heat coil off. I flushed it out today a good amount of rust! Got it pretty cleaned out, new thermostat, all hoses are good; started the truck up while I was flishing it and running the hose through it and the upper return hose "popped/thud'd" whe the water was released back into the radiator to cycle.. I mean it was enough to make the hose visually move! Scared her lol... Finally got it filled up and wasn't overheating until it was one the road; made it 1/2 block and it died,twice.. Any help is greatly appreciated as it has to be up and running tomorrow and NO there is no white smoke in regards to really blown heads, thanks!

THese vehicles had a national recall for bad head gaskets..It is a V6 and will fail but still run ok.. Remove the thermostat and see if it helps. Youll notice that the truck is drinking the external leaks but it is going somewhere...blown head gaskets......Sorry man!

Just bought 1993 Toyota 4runner 3.0 turbo diesel, heaters not producing any heat regardless of engine temperature, fans work fine and has plenty of water in the system

ok I think this could be one of 2 things when you turn your heat on do you hear a clicking noise behind the dash if you do it could possibly be the actuator that opens and closes when you turn the temp knob from hot to cold! Also the other thing that it may possibly be could be that the heater core has gone bad and is not producing any heat to inside the vehicle but I would check the actuator switch first if you have the clicking in your dash
