Question about 1991 Toyota Land Cruiser

1 Answer

How do you adjust timing on a 1991 Toyota Land Cruiser 4.0L I6 3FE? Had to replace distributor, coil & ignitor, local mechanic said I would need to take it to a Toyota dealer to get timing adjusted. It feels like it is running just under on timing, not really "missing" but really sluggish. Shouldn't I be able to adjust timing without the assistance of a costly dealer visit?

Dealers do it right and for timing it is the best for your money but you should be able to get a book from local parts store

1991 Toyota land cruiser.. vibration, sputtering??

One of the plug wires may be arching or have a defective spark. It's odd, but I check mine by removing each plug wire one at a time. I'll use stick the end of a screw driver (insulated handle) in the plug wire and check the spark coming in from the coil/coil pack/distributor. Keep in mind, the engine is running and I only do this if there's no shop open or close by. Also the insulated handles are for that unwanted shock. Has he checked for sparks at night with the engine running. Look around and follow the plug wires and around coil/coil pack for any jumping sparks. If any are seen, there's your problem.
