Question about 1993 Toyota 4Runner

1 Answer

I have a Toyota Surf / 4runner 3ltr turbo diesel that is turning over but not starting. The glow plugs arn't glowing and the injector pump isn't pumping fuel through, however there is power to the injector pump. Fuses seem all ok. New batteries. All the wireing looks good. Had it to the auto electrician and he cant find a fault. Was starting with no probs one day then not at all the next. Could it be an ECU problem?

You don't need to take either the turbo or the fuellines of to replace the glowplugs. I do not believe you.

check the ecu of your , it may control your plugs,
or check also your spill valve in the injection pump and the timing control valve also in the injection pump.

you can check the glow plugs.disconnect the negatif from batterie.
remove the wire thats connect all glow plugs.then turn one by one,
the glow plug out.remember where you took them out.you got on ,
one end a pin and the other side treat,treat is possitif pin is negatif.
take a solid wire from and connect that whit a small gripper on the,
nut from the glow plug.now the treat from glow plug put that on possitif batterie en the wire on the negatif from batterie,the plug will start to glow from top off the pin downwarts if its a good one.less good one start to glow in the middle off the pin and then one is not working will not glow ,
be carrefull these can burn very hot,so only do this a few seconds.
diesel needs somewhere between 400 or 500 degrees to ignite.

Check and make sure your glow plug controller is putting out voltage to your glow plugs, make sure voltage to your glow plugs is cycling. if it is not, at the front of the engine there is a temperature switch, if this switch is not working your glow plug controller will not work. also make sure you are getting diesel to your injector pump, if you are not, there is a high pressure switch at the back of the engine right behind the glow plug controller, if this switch is not working, your injector pump will not get fuel. also make sure both batteries are fulley charged, if one is low, your diesel will never start. you can jump out these switches, if your truck starts after bypassing, just make sure to replace them. i have a 1993 silverado C3500HD 2WD. good luck!

Toyota hilux 3ltr diesel,i put new glow plugs in about 3 weeks ago & it fixed the starting problem going fine.now it just started not starting when it is cold checked wiring has power to glow plugs...


Double check your fuel filter and replace as necessary. Also replace your coolant temp sensor. I would also pull out each glow plug and bench test with heavy cables and make sure they do glow red. It very well could be a couple of the glow plugs have failed due to quality. Let me know what you find.

Typically, the glow plug light not coming on indicates that you have some bad plugs or poor connection. You need to replace the plugs and check the wire connections. It is interesting how picky diesels are when they aren't warm.
Hope this helps.

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.

(TOYOTA SURF 1990 TURBO DIESEL) No diesel coming out of fuel pump


If it has glow plugs or an intake heater you will need to disable the circuit. Then you can use a small amount of ether to spray into the air cleaner.!!! If you spray too much and/or Dont disable the circuits you can damage the motor!!! When you spray the ether, if the engine starts and stalls then its not getting fuel. This could be related to the fuel pump, injection pump, the fuel system loosing its prime(fuel line leak), fuel shut-off valve or solenoid. If it doesn't start then it could be related to your timing, valves or maybe compression.
