Question about 1992 Toyota 4Runner

1 Answer

Hi, I have a 1992 Toyota 4runner, new 2.8L Diesel engine, with turbo installed in it. It also has a lift kit with fairly large tyres fitted. My question is, is there a reason to why the car feels very underpowered when going up hill? And what can i do to solve the issue.

The japanese have only just started to make a decent diesel engine.so its no wonder your old toyota is gutless,even with a turbo.(check out its bhp/torque figures) only option is check out a website called "diesel tuning.co.uk",(or others),and fit a small black box that can give you an uplift in power......

Can a subaru engine fit in a toyota estima? has anybody tried it and got successful? i want to change my 2.2 turbo diesel engine to a 2 litre twin turbo subaru engine


No. engine mounts, electrics, ecu, axels and a whole lot of other stuff would need to be changed and cut and welded.even after that you could have a host of other difficulties. not an easy task for even the experienced engineer.

1990 model hilux very gutless going up hills is a 2.8 diesel


Actually a 2.8 diesel should be fairly weak on hills, especially if this is an automatic transmission.
You could check the fuel filter, or change to lower profile tires that give more power, but really turbo charging is the best way to really get lots of power out of such a small diesel.
Diesels not only have less hp then petrol engines, but also a narrower torque range.
