Question about 1994 Toyota 4Runner

1 Answer

I have a 1995 Toyota 4runner V6 SR5. For the first few miles of driving the breaks will vibrate then the ABS light will come on and the breaks will stop vibrating. I got a diagnostic check and code 33 came up (left rear wheel speed sensor). We replaced the sensor (with a used one from Ebay, which was supposedly guaranteed to work) but the same problem arose when we test drove it. Any ideas? Thanks.

The breaks vibrate because the ABS is permanently active because it thinks that the wheel in question is blocked. It thinks that because it doesn't receives any signal from the sensor, hence the error code.
If you are sure that the sensor is good then the only thing left that could cause this is the wire loom connecting the sensor to the ABS control unit - they are interrupted because, most likely, the have been broken by a stone thrown by the tires. Get underneath the car, locate the loom and follow its path on the chassis until you locate the damage and fix it.

I have a 95 toyota 4 runner sr5 v6. It is not getting good gas mileage. I have changed the air filter and the spark plugs and nothing has changed.

After a good tune-up may other factors affect your gas mileage, tire pressure, acceleration, traffic conditions, driving habits, etc. The only thing you can do is make sure its well tuned, has regular oil changes, clean filers and drive like a 90 year old lady! Outside of that, think about getting a newer more fuel efficient car.

1995 toyota 4 runner sr5 v6 3.0l stuck in park, no dash lights, running lights or brake lights

Hi John,there should be an emergency release near the base of the shifter (maybe a small red button,sometimes a slot into which you fit the ignition key). Then drive the vehicle to an auto electrician to sort out the wiring problem.

I have a 2005 Toyota Tundra - the front end vibrates when turning. What's causing this?

When was the last time you balanced and rotated tires,it's recommended to do it every 6000 miles,Sam's club does it for 15 or if you bought tires from there then it's free.Make sure lug nuts are tight.

I'm proudly own a 1995 Toyota 4Runner with 3.0L V6 engine, with 149k on it and i want to ask if there's any way to improve MPG, i put correct pressure on tires, clean MAF sensor, altough no...

verify good spark plugs and correct ignition timing. make sure the engine is getting to correct temp (195f) Has the mileage always been this bad? be sure the cam timing is correct.

Abs light on

ABS is the anti binding system this is the system that reduces your car from skidding if you break hard. on older cars you may have been told to pump the break in an emergency to reduce skidding well ABS does that for you.

it is still possible to drive your car without ABS but the light may be indicating something else that is wrong with your breaking system I recommend you have this checked by a certified machanic or dealership.

ABS light constantly comes on: how can I repair or best solution: where is it located (differ?): beginner level description please: thank you '94 Toy 4Runner V6 SR5 3VZE I've looked at other forums...

On the passenger side in the engine there is a sensor near the radiator. If you look down just under the battery there is a gray or white 2-wire plug, that wire gets carroded from the battery and breaks off sometime take a look if it is you will see it. If you can't see a clean brake then pull (lightly) on it see if it puuls out, if it does there is the problem. Good Luck
