Question about Toyota Tacoma

1 Answer

I just changed my head gasket on my toyota 1997 tacmoa. It took 5 minutes of cranking to get it started. I thought it was starving for fuel with a new filter and empty lines. I stopped and started it 4 times. Now it will not start and my obd ll code reads P1300. Ok, when I lowered my timing gear and chain I turned the engine over by hand to clean the carbon off of the pistons. Later after installing the gear and chain back onto the intake cam the chain to gear mark was off. I was told that if The #1 piston was at tdc, the cams both lined up and the distributer was installed back lining up at #1 plug then the chain shouldn't matter. Does that colored link have something to do with the crank position sensor?

Your timing is off. You have to have the marks lined up.

I have a manual 05 tiida.The problems I am having are the starting of the car can take 5-10 mins at times to crank over and also when driving in lower gears the car acts like it is starving for fuel


Several GM cars of mine had check valve in fuel filter. I stopped the delay in cranking by changing the fuel filter. I think Nissan fuel pressure regulator act as a check valve. The issue of it taking a while to crank sounds like the gas may be running back to the tank and you have to pump the air out of the line before it cranks. Just a thought to look at, fuel pressure regulator.

1987 toyota pickup with 22r keeps blowing head gasket


Your head bolts are stretched, when it got hot it weakened the metal in the bolts which means that the bolts cannot hold the needed tension on the head. Replace the bolts and you will stop blowing head gaskets. Also use Genuine Toyota head gasket, It will be a bit dearer but they are much better than aftermarket options.

1997 contour 4 cyl cranks but wont start acts like fuel starved


If it acts like it's starved for fuel, it probably is related to that. I would check first though. If you have a carb, you can spray starter fluid inside and then crank it. If it tried to start, then it is fuel related. Probably a fuel pump, fuel filter, or fuel relay, or perhaps a fuse. If it doesn't start for a second, it could be many more things. If so, you should check your ignition system, spark plugs, wires, distributor, coils, ect. If your battery and starter are fine, start looking to see if your car is getting fuel. Hope this helps. Being broke down sucks!

1997 toyota 4 runner...engine turns over but will not fire


First of all, never... and i mean NEVER, use starting fluid on a gas engine. You will blow intake gaskets, possibly head gaskets, and even warp the valves, and worse yet, blow your head off. Starting fluid is meant for diesel engines, and nothing else.
The first thing you have to do is listen when you first turn on the key, to hear if the fuel pump is running in the gas tank. If you can't hear it, check fuses and wiring. Make sure there is power to the pump by using a test light. If there is power, and it doesn't work, replace the pump.
Check for spark using a timing light. If there is no spark, check the coil, fuses, distributor, wiring, etc. Aim your timing light at the crank mark, if you have spark, and make sure the mark is staying in one place. If it is jumping around, your timing chain has likely jumped, and will need to be replaced.
If there is an engine light on, you are best off to borrow a scanner if you don't have one, and see what it says. Hit and miss can end up costing much more than the price of a scanner. Good luck.

Head gasket was leaking on my 86 mr2 Replaced the


Check all the wiring connections that you loosened or took off when you removed the head. something is loose or disconnected ,eg., ground wires .
Make sure you have spark at spark plugs whemn cranking ,and fuel pressure.
Did you try spraying starting-fluid in the intake, see if the engine runs for a little bit.
Compression to be anything above 100 psi will firean engine ,sometimes lower too.

Change your fuel filter, it may have gone it's life time and is getting to dirty to let fuel flow properly. Your fuel pump to may be getting weak, if the fuel filter is dirty the pump works harder and heats up and could be over heating the fuel pump relay too. The fuel pump relay i believe is in the glove box behind a panel that say relay, there should be (3) in there and the middle one is the fuel pump's. switch then around after you change the fuel filter and if you get a chance, check your fuel pressure at the shredder valve. Good luck and hope this help's if there is a Auto Zone around you, you can ask to use the fuel pressure gauge to see what fuel pressure you have and they'll have the step by step instructions on how to do it and takes about 5 min to do and will have the fuel filter and step by step to replace that too. Keep me posted, be glad to help.
