Why is my Toyota Landcruiser 1HZ motore missing and blowing white smoke?

Air leak in the fuel line? All the lines are pressurised to some degree.
Do you mean it was sucking air on the tank to pump side?
Because its a diesel and you have white smoke and a misfire you need specialist help to identify which injector is playing up. White smoke is usually excess fuel or incomplete firing on that cylinder. Toyota lumps are very reliable so get some help, a good diesel mechanic would have a clip on tester that would check each cylinder.
At 2002 I'm surprised there is a fuel problem but you don't give mileage so an injector is the best guess.

Troopy 75 Series landcruiser engine problem? hi

Check your air filter housing and the air intake piping. There is a reason why there are high level air intakes available for your vehicle, it is to stop water getting inside the combustion chambers. There is a possibility that your engine has sucked water into the induction system. It needs to be checked and cleaned as soon as possible. Water in the combustion chambers WILL kill your engine.

Hose leaking brake fluid. under drivers side . just put in new brakes and rotors

If the brake calipar was left hanging by the hose instead of being tied up,that puts a strain on the hose and the brake line causing it to crack or break. The hose needs to be replaced, and the brake system bled of air.

Yesterday in 90 degree weather after my car runs for a couple hour and gets hot it wants to shut down it makes a noise like it is not getting any power. After you let it set for about 20 minutes it allowed...

Lets start with the easy first and replace the fuel filter. One the fuel filter has been replaced and the problem persist, we can go to the next step and check the fuel pressure at the shredder valve. But for now it's most likely the fuel filter has come to the end if it's life, they should be replaced every 30,000 miles or once a year which ever comes first. Good luck and keep me posted. You can pick up the fuel filter st Auto Zone and they can give you the step by step instructions to getting the job done and Will also have the quick fuel line release wrench for lone or purchase.

Hi i have a L reg 325 td which was fine when it went to a garage for some minor mot repairs,after spending hundreds of pounds on various bits its never run right since. I replaced a fuel valve,had a hole...

I had this problem when I bought my 325td. When the fuel level got below 1/2 tank, it began to **** air through the fuel lines. Turns out it needed a new fuel pump. Wasn't a big problem to fix, just got a new filter (I think from eurocarparts) and changed it under the backseat.

Hope it helps.

1985 diesel after sitting overnight will not start

The check valve is a small brass fitting where the return line attaches to the filter head. I believe it takes a 7/16" wrench. There is a 'duck bill' inside that prevents fuel from leaking back to the tank causing air in the system. It should allow flow in only on direction. Some times you can see light through it if it's bad enough. Also, the lines between the injectors can dry out and start to leak air. Air will leak in before fuel leaks out, and you won't see it. There are plastic, cup-shaped connectors for these hoses that press onto the top of each injector. They are sealed by two o-rings on each injector body where it meets the connector. These o-rings can dry out and also leak air and fuel. Your Ford dealer or diesel service professional should have the proper o-rings. Any other o-rings might not seal, as they won't be the exact size. You already changed the fuel solenoid when you replaced the pump. It is inside. There has to be battery cranking voltage to it while cranking, and battery voltage with key in 'on' position. The wire attaches to the top of the pump. This is not likely to be the problem, since it restarts every 2 hours.

Hard Start Toyota Landcruiser HZJ75

two first things to check fuel and spark ...fuel make sure your fuel pump is working its messy but the easiest way is to pull the fuel line "only one connection" and turn key to on then press gas pedal and gas should pump out if not fuel pump is bad... if thats not it you want to check for spark easiest way is to pull one of the spark plug wires and stick a screwdriver in the end then hold the screwdriver to where the metal shank is approx. 1/4" away from any metal surface ... hold the screwdriver without touching the metal shank!!! have someone crank the engine you should see a spark intermittently between the screwdriver and the metal youre holding it close to.. if thats ok the only other thing i can suggest is get a battery with more cca "cold cranking amps"..hope this helps..OH YA ON A SAFER NOTE!!!...DONT LOOK FOR SPARK WITH THE ENGINE WET WITH FUEL..
