Question about 1991 Toyota 4Runner

1 Answer

Transmission problem I have a diesel 2L-T Hilux Surf(4 Runner), and the automatic transmission is not responsive i.e. it does not shift down quickly. But the bigger problem is, that at higher speeds (80 kmph+) if i have the motor gunned, the auto trans keeps shifting gears up and down and there is hardly any acceleration. Plus there is a strange vibration when i touch abt 2700+ rpms. I feel a lack of power in low gears as well especially if the air-conditioning is on. I've had the pump serviced and i've had the engine mounts checked for vibration and all is in order. What can be the reason for this? Thanks in advance

The transmission is most likely going out, you need to have it serviced and checked for metal shaving in the pan, if thats present you might need the transmission serviced or buy Synthetic Transmission Fluid to put into it which can help restore it somewhat, but a rebuild kit might solve your problem

some countries ran carbs then.

is it fuel injected , EFI? (-E is EF)

now the Generic answer.
1: low compression on all or 1 cylinders.
2: bad spark or timed wrong, (gas engines)
3: wrong fuel rates, (too much or too little)
too much is misfire, too little is bog.
on diesel too much is black cloud.
too little bogs.
there is a simple test for each, path.

The Hilux Surf version for the Japanese market was also available with a range of diesel engines, including a 2.4 L turbodiesel 2L-TE I4 up to 1993, followed by a 3.0 L turbodiesel 1KZ-TE I4. A small number were also made with a normally aspirated 2.8 L diesel 3L I4. A small number were also produced with a 2.0 L 3Y I4 naturally aspirated gasoline engine.

My 93 hilux surf turbo diesel has started to run a bit rough, not too bad but i have noticed it, i recently had the glow plugs and cold start relay done, but this has had no effect. also uses more fuel....


You may want to add some diesel fuel conditioner.

This is most likely from dirty injector nozzles.

You could also try some automatic transmission fluid in your fuel (about 1/4 quart or so)

That sometimes works.

It may also help if you change your fuel filter regularly.

You may also want to do a compression test on your engine to make sure your engine is in good shape.

There are lots of variables, but I would try injector cleaner first.
