Ok i start my 95 toyota 4runner up it will idle but as soon as it hits certain temp it stalls out on me it has a full tune up plugs wires etc also put new fuel injectors in im baffled


Usually it is the EGR valve or the EGR solenoid. Does you car have fast idle? If your car has fast idle, for example idling at 1,000 rpm instead of 800 rpm, it may be a vacuum leak. Is your car stock? If those options do not help, let me know more details about the car and i will look more into the problem.

I have a 1990 4runner with 214,000 on the motor. I have recently replaced the plugs, wires, cap, and rotar. When the truck is cold and not warmed up yet it stalls out on me. I start it and it idles high in...


probably the IAC, not usually the TPS, have you replaced the fuel filter? it could be a problem with the new wires, yes they may be new, but there is always a chance it is faulty, kind of sounds like a misfire. It could also be the spark plugs. or possibly you have them plugged the number 1 wire into the wrong spot on the distributor

How do I see/get error codes for my 1988 4Runner? (idling prob.)


The check connector is located near the No. 2 relay box. Short terminals T and E1 of the check connector. (jump together)
2. Turn the ignition ON. do not start engine.
3. Read codes by the number of flashes of the "CHECK ENGINE" WARNING LIGHT.
4. System normal: blink every 0.25 seconds.
5. Malfuction Code: light will blink a number of times equal to the malfuction code.Between first digit and second digit, 1.5 sec
Between code and code 2.5 sec, between all malfuction codes 4.5 sec
6. The diagnostics code series will be repeated as long as the connector terminals T and E1 are jumped.
7. Codes are 2 digit numbers

I think you need to have it looked at by a local mechanic. By what you describe it sounds like your engine could be severely damaged.

1993 toyota 4runner idle too high problem


check the various throttle controlls. there should be a grey box with an unusual nut on it. have a car guy look it over. the vehicle will have a cold-start high idle for a few minutes before selling down if it's a V6.
