Search engine on fixya throws answers too generic to be of use

I search for 1990 toyota 4runner headlight replacement and get answers for toyota avalon. These cars DO NOT have the same headlight system. One uses a sealed beam and the other a replacement lamp secured by a locking ring. Is this because you are trying to make it difficullt enough that the casual user will get frustrated and pay for expert help?

Depending on the amount of search terms (words) you are entering into the search box, you will get an assortment of results - some relative to the exact phrase, others relative to certain keywords.

So the fact that you're looking for Toyota is the reason you're seeing some Toyota results. Perhaps a more narrow search using less terms may help?

From the FixYa FAQs:

Search - Type your product name or keyword phrase into the search box on the Homepage. You'll be taken to a search results page listing all of the products that match your search criteria, with the ability to narrow down your results by product category. If there is only one match for your search criteria, you will be taken directly to that matching product's page.

Can I replace a 1990 Toyota 4runner engine with a 1994 4runner engine?  My son blew his 1990 4runner engine and someone is offering us a 1994 engine.  Are they interchangable?


check with your local Toyota dealer in the parts department and make sure you give them the liter of both engines and they can give you the correct answer and you can also try autozone.com to see if they have your car listed for diagrams pictures and step by step instructions if your car is not listed then try your local library they have all the car manuals and even copy them for you

Head gasket on my 1990 toyota V6 3.0


I would highly recommend that you go to the local parts store and purchase a Haynes Manual for your vehicle, they are around $ 25.00 Canadian. As when you do your head gasket you wil need to remove your timing belt and this is a procedure in it's self. then you will neen certain torque settings. This manual will provide you with all of this information step by step. they are designed for the do it yourselfer. They also cover many other issues that you may come across through out the ownership of your vehicle. I know that the last ting you need is an added exspence but these manuals are well worth the small investment. There is a site that you can find hrough google search that you can find factory service repair manuals for your vehicle, however they only have a layout for a 4 cylinder engine in there drawings and this is alot different then the 6 cylinder. As the procedure for repairs is totally different. I hope that this helps and that you take the time to rate any solutions you receive. Good Luck.
