#8 of 16 87 4Runner Mirror Replacement
Oct 03, 2006 (9:22 pm)
After 20 years the glass in my driver's side mirror fell out and broke. I purchased a new one from a local dealer but it is the whole auto adjustable unit. What is the procedure for removing the old assembly and installing the new one? It appears that the unit snaps in over two ball joints but I'm not sure about how I get the pivot lever loose. Does anyone have any experience with this procedure?
#9 of 16 89 4runner hesitation when cold
Dec 10, 2006 (3:23 pm)
I am hoping someone can help me out. I have a 1989 4runner that has a new 3.0 v6 long block (automatic). The only problem I am having is when the engine is cold it has a hesitation when accelerating from the stopped position, sometimes it stalls. Once the engine is warmed up it goes from the stopped postion like it should, no hesitation. Any ideas where to start?

#12 of 16 Gen 1 4runner Tow behind my RV
Mar 13, 2007 (8:04 am)
Hi all, I have an 88 v6 with automatic tranny. I want to tow this behind my older Winnebago. The Rv is not my question. the question is can I simply install a tow bar on the 4Runner, or do I need a dolly, or do I need ? ?
thanks in advance to all for your anticipated good thoughts.

Your owners manual should be able to give you the answer to that. I would think that you shouldn't tow your automatic 4Runner with the rear wheels on the ground. I guess you could disconnect the drive shaft and then be able to tow it 4 wheels down in 2wheel drive.

I know this is a really old post but I'm having the same problems you mentioned you had before and I was wondering what the solution was.
My car is running lean but getting really bad gas mileage. I too have been averaging about 13 mpg when I hear that 17-18 is typical and up to 24 mpg is possible on the highway in the V6.
By bro seems to think it could be the fuel pump or something related but the thing was still working well when we change the fuel fileter. It may be weak, however/
Any advice woyuld be appreciated.
"I made a post in the other Toyota forum #56 and I have since found the problem to be a faulty wire in the fuel pump wire harness under the passenger seat.
The truck I have is a SR5 1987 4x4 2.4L 8 valve 5 speed. It has a new problem now, the truck runs ok and then it shuts off as the engine light comes on. I am in the process of changing the air flow sensor and hope that this is the problem. The truck has 205,000 km.
Are there any of you who have had to change air flow sensors?
What kind of mileage are you getting with these old trucks. I am getting only about 13 mpg highway, I am not sure if this is normal or low because of the problem described above"

JUst wanted to see if anyone was still monitoring this catagory. I love my 86 and at 290K am thinking about rebuilding with genuine Toyota parts verses a rebuild with who knows what junk inside. Pay more but retain the reliable Toyota quality. Anyone else ready to rebuild?

My truck has 221,000 on it. I get 19-20 in town and on the higway if I keep it 65mph and below. If I go above 65, I usually get 17 mpg.
Heres the kicker. I run 16" OEM wheels from a 2004, and 265/7516 Big O Bigfoot MT's. Super aggressive tread.
I imagine if I went back to the 235/75/15 I would get that 20-24 mpg.
I have disabled all of the tailgate lockouts. All you have to do is remove the frame mounted grounds(white wires). I think its extremely hilarious all the people that have bought new window motors, and this tailgate interface computer thing. I also think its hilarious that people are paying 50-75 bucks for a tailgate window motor, when all the window motors are the same part.
