SOURCE: 1997 toyota 4-runner, My battery

A development on my problem (battery and other lights turning on, making me think my alternator was out, and radio cutting out). My engine temp skyrocketed one day. I checked and my radiator was quite low, and now after ensuring the radiator was full and the engine running at normal temperature, all the warning lights and alternator misbehavior stopped. I'm not sure the relationship except that it worked.. so far. (filling the radiator fully, that is).

SOURCE: replace front brake pad 2003 toyota 4 runner

Diagram is unnecessry.
Pull both front wheels
Work one at a time leaving the other for reference
Find the retention spring ... its a paperclip thickness wire spring... dislodge center retention loop and undo from both ends which engage brake pad retention rods.
Pull the rods out
Pull the old pads out... laying everything on the ground
Use scrap wooden wedges to pry between the rotor and the caliper ...inside and out until the calipers are fully withdrawn. Use the new pads to measure if they are far enough back.
Note... the brake fluid will have dropped in the master cylinder over many months of wear... do not fill it. When the calipers are pushed back they will fill the reservoir again... one wheel at a time.
Be sure to identify the correct pad based on what you took out and what is on the other side (if you screwed up the layout)
Make sure to take the old antisqueek backing plate from the old pad and place it on the new pad. They don't use lubricant on these anymore.
Replace the pads... the retention rods... then the retention spring
Do the other side
Then progressively step on the brake peddle until full tension is felt
Check the master cylinder reservoir... probably needs no additional fluid.
New pads will register in existing ridges in each disc in no time at all.
You should check the discs to see if they need to be replaced during this operation...using some calipers

SOURCE: water leak under the intake manifold,1995 toyota 4 runner

There is a heater core bypass pipe that runs from the block (under the manifold) to the bacl of theengine where you will see a flat rectangular "sheet metal" thing with a pipe coming out of it. The a rubber hose connects. You need to pull the top air plenums and intake to get to it. The p[ipe flange bolts to the block with silicone rtv as a sealant.

95 4 runner rough idle at start


Hi, 1994 4-runner hard-start after 3-4 hrs......All the above are good possibilities and should be checked.....I don't know what changing to E3 means exactly, but if it means changing the spark-plugs, it could be that the plugs are too cold or too hot ....it is probably best to stay with the factory recommended plugs ....some plugs are hot and some are cold ,in case you are not aware of it.......good luck with it....Frankie Don.

1997 Toyota Truck 4 Runner 4WD 3.4L EFI DOHC 6cyl, blown head gasket?


Could be a blown head gasket. You might also need to "burp" the system. When the vehicle is completely cooled down, try taking the radiator cap off, topping off fluid, and start the engine. That should help get air out. If it starts bubbling and shooting coolant out, something is wrong. You could also try running without the thermostat or just go ahead and replace it. They aren't usually expensive.

I have a 1990 Toyota 4 Runner. It idles rough, sprays too much fuel, and can't rev up. I installed new plugs, plug wires, and cap and rotors, even switched the computer mas airflow sensor and distributor...


Couple of thoughts if you are sure it is spraying to much gas... Have you checked the fuel pressure? If the regulator it bad, pressure may be to high, that would cause it to run rich/spray to much gas. Sometimes a bad temp sensor can cause it also, if computer thinks a hot engine is cold due to bad sensor, it will run rich. Way outside the box is... have you checked Alternator voltage? With engine running, check voltage at Battery, it should not be much over 14.5, if it is way high, it screws everything up. I have never seen a TPS cause the problem.
