These trucks have a transfeer pump in the tank that should never be run dry of gas. the gas cools the pump and running them dry kills them quick. some will last a wile some a matter of a minute or 2. under your truck on the drivers side there should be a fuel filter mounted to the frame rail about even with the back of your door. it will be inside the frame rail. disconnect the line where i goes in to this filter. turn the key to the on position and see is the fuel is being transfered out of the tank. newer cars have 2 pumps a transfer pump inside the tank that moves the fuel to the filter and a pressure pump the picks it up from there to maintain constant and even pressure in the fuel rail for the fuel injection.
you should also check the fuse for these pumps some cars will blow the fuse before ruining the pump.

I believe that the engine fitted into your vehicle is diesel fueled....Once this type of engine runs out of fuel, it is necessary to 'bleed' the system and remove all air from the fuel line

  • Open the bonnet (hood)
  • On top of the fuel filter housing is a flat silver metal plunger which must be pumped until it becomes hard.
  • Once the air has been removed, the engine should start.

My car was low on gas and cut off on the way home. i went and got some gas but car wont start. what could be the problem?


Is it still not working? Sometimes you need to let it sit about 15 minutes to get it started again and there may also be a chance you didnt put enough gas in it. My car ran out going up a hill and we put in 2 gallons but needed another gallon before my car would start again.

Hope this is helpful

I need the engine serial of my toyota tundra 2008, i went to a local toyota dealership, but they sais that they don have it in the sistem, that its very difficl to get it that i need to take out the engine


The serial number is engraved on the block, very tough to see. Why do you need it?
The dealer would have to request TMS -Toyota motor sales and then the manufacturer, Toyota Texus plant.

2008 Toyota Highlander Sport AWD when starting off the engine seems to rev fairly high for very small vehicle movement. At idle engine revs around 1000RPM. Gas mileage is poor,17MPG for about 80% city, 20%...


yes it is normal many customers complain about how the newer cars are not as responsive from a stop basically you have to hit the gas then the car goes seems to rev high to people with not a lot of movement becausse of this its because the newer cars are throttle by wire when you hit the gas it sends a electrical signal to the throttle to go instead of a few yyears back they were you hit the gas and the cable attached to gas pedal pulls back throtttle much more responsive hope this helps
