The Toyota Tacoma has a fuel injector that mixes fuel with air. This technology almost completely replaced in the late 1980s and its programmable firmware allows the same hardware to be used with different fuels. A fuel injector is only a nozzle and a valve; it still requires a pump to inject the fuel into the engine.
  • Determine which fuel injector your Toyota Tacoma will need. This depends not only on the make and model, but also the engine size. Models made before 2005 may have a 2.4L, 2.7L or 3.4L engine. The current version may have a 2.7L or 4.0L engine.
  • Relieve the fuel system pressure and disconnect the negative battery cable with a socket wrench. Remove the engine under cover subassembly and drain the engine coolant. Detach the intake air connector and disconnect the throttle body motor assembly with a socket wrench.
  • Disconnect the fuel lines and remove the fuel pressure pulsation damper assembly with a socket wrench. Unplug the electrical connectors for the fuel and vacuum switching valve. Remove the engine wiring harness clamp and the air conditioning compressor clutch connector with a socket wrench.
  • Remove the two fuel rail mounting bolts with a socket wrench and lift out the fuel rail with the injectors still attached. Pull out the fuel injectors and discard the old gaskets.
  • Use new gaskets and install the new fuel injectors by reversing the removal procedure.
  • Fill the coolant reservoir with coolant of the proper grade and type. Start the engine and check for fuel leaks.

Are the new springs that were fitted original factory or after market? New springs will be less flexible than old ones until they settle into use. This will explain the increase in ride height. Old springs soften so the ride height drops a small amount. At higher speeds your getting more down force so the suspension will settle. Remember she's a 20 year old truck, things start to sag as you get older.

Try replacing your radiator cap. The fan clutch could be a problem. It is not real hard to change out. It should be pretty self explanatory if you look at it. They are not controlled by any wires or anything. Your water pump is driven by your timing belt so if either of those need replaced, always do both.

You most likely have a short somewhere, and or a blown fuse or two. Check all fuses, then trace wires. Check all grounds first, then check the ignition wires and headlight to multi function switches(levers on steering column) and see if there's a hot wire hitting a ground somewhere.

you put ion the amount to bring back to the correct level on the dip stick unless you have completely drained the transmission AND the torque converter then the amount required is around 1/2 the capacity stated in the book so start with the 2.1 quarts monitoring the dip stick until you get it on the mark then follow the instructions in the user manual as to starting /running in gear at idle and topping it off as required

If water is getting into the head then you will eventually sieze the engine. Yes it will run for a while but you will ruin it if you do not repair it. Sorry but it's either spend money now or buy another engine. Noise tells me you are in trouble.
