Question about Toyota Tacoma

1 Answer

I have a 2003 Toyota Tacoma SR5 that will turn over but will not start. I pulled the fuel line apart and discovered there is no fuel coming from the pump. How can I tell if it is the fuel pump or a relay? It gave no sign the pump was going bad. If it is a relay how do I know which one?

    The pump does not come on. Does anyone know where the circuit opening relay is located in a 2003 Toyota Tacoma?

Im not positive on how to check the relay but to check to see if the fuel pump is atleast turning on ou turn the key to the on position but do not start and have a friend listen under the car to see if the pump turns on. It will make a "whirring" sound. Hope this gets you on the right track!

Have toyota tacoma 2003 4x4 sr5 have clunking sound seems like coming from drive line help plz

A clunking sound is usually a universal joint that is going out. Check the joints by getting under the truck and trying to shake the drive shafts near the joints. The other cause could be the pinion (front or rear) has developed slack. You may see some slack at the pinion bearing of the axle housing when you shake the drive shaft.

Check engine light on my 2003 SR5 V6 came on. What is the cause?

The check engine light could come on for numerous problems. Sometimes, It's the oxygen sensor gone bad. I believe there are two of them located under the vehicle. Sometime you can find them and just pull the connection apart and blow dirt or anything out of the connection and hook it back up. Most times, you have to replace the sensor or sensors. If the check engine light is blinking, there is another problem besides that. I would try that first or go to a mechanic and let them run a computer test on your vehicle. That should not cost much and will take less than 10 minutes. This is a very vague answer in the many check engine light problems, but it's a start.

Check for fuel pressure when starting. Fuel pumps have a check valve in them that keep fuel in the rail at the injectors. If the check valve fails, the pump has to pump fuel all of the way up to the engine. Same thing with hot no-restarts. Fuel pump.
