Question about 1998 Toyota Land Cruiser

1 Answer

1998 Toyota Landcruiser with 99000 mi suddenly lost power and engine light went on. Strong chemical, not burning smell ensued. Gas pedal was non responsive. Vehicle had to be towed to local toyota dealer. Vehicle could still be driven on and off tow truck bed. Initially diagnosed as bad trottle body and sensors, quoted $1770 to replace. Part was replaced but still unresponsive to gas pedal. Now diagnosed with bad ECM, $1200 + to repair. Could the technicians be wrong and unnecessarily replacing expensive parts?

Yes, of course! If their previous excessively expensive repair did NOT fix the vehicle, that is PROOF they were WRONG, and that they OWE you a REFUND for the INCORRECT part, AND it replacement labor! Complain to the Federal Trade Commission if they don't do something about their demonstrated INCOMPETENCE ... so far!

SOURCE: Code P0031 ...engine light on

Hi dandsdelvill, the sensor is quite easy to replace,it is a thread in nut configuration, they can be a little hard to bust loose but with a little elbow grease you can do it, is your car a 4 or 6 cyl? is it an LE,SE or XLE? there are 1-2-3 or 4 wire sensors the one wire being universal however I would suggest staying with the factory style you have whether 1-4. $414.70!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! well that beauty of a sensor here in Canada retails for between $20.00 to $120.00 if efi. Do it yourself my friend it is not difficult hope this helps good luck

The plugs that are supposed to be in a 2000 4 cyl Camry are :

95/98 T-100 V-6
95-04 Tacoma V-6

SOURCE: Location of knock sensor on 1994 toyota 22vre engine

The Knock sensor on a 22re is located under the intake manifold on the engine block. to the upper left of the oil filter. With is the passenger side of the engine. I believe it is yellow in color. Not do be confused with the oil pressure sensor which is close by. The knock sensor has a larger electrical connector. Good luck it can be hard to get to.

Filling up with fuel may be a coincidence to your problem, or you may have purchased contaminated fuel.

The check engine light will log a "Fault Code" in the vehicles on board computer which may help you diagnose the problem.

A fuel leak, if present, is a serious concern and until you determine if the vehicle is leaking fuel you should not drive it.

Ford 1998 F-150. Brakes overhauled 6 mos. ago. Hwy/City driving percentage: 90/10. I was driving on the freeway this morning, cruise control on, when the abs and brake light lit suddenly. I tapped...

With the sudden loss in brake pressure, and the light on, I would check the fluid level and if its low, suspect a brake fluid leak, that may be the burning smell, maybe leaking near a exhaust pipe? You dont mention where you are, but if its NORTH and salt is used to get snow off the roads, brake line failures are real common.
