#529 of 598 Trailer wiring 2006 tacoma
May 02, 2006 (5:12 am)
I did go to a hitch place and they gave me a 4 wire harness to hook up to the back lights, and then a two wire harness for power and the brake. The trailer uses a 7 pin connector without using the middle pin. The brake wire connection that was suggested by the hitch place was a splice into the wire which comes from the switch located just behind the brake peddle. I guess after looking at the wiring diagram from the toyota manual there may not be a plug-in under the dash. May have to go with the splice.

I also have a 2004 tundra, with V8, a mechanic friend of mine said it was due to the oil not staying at the top of the engine. So you are basically getting a dry start, once the oil pumps through the engine, the parts are lubricated and the noise goes away. He had worked on North American vehicles for years, he said its probably the Hydraulic Valve lifters which need to be replaced, because the O-Rings are cracked which allows oil to go back into the pan.

In the 2004 Tundra owner's manual, it states that the battery can run flat IF you keep your headlights in the "ON" position, they turn off when the vehicle turns off, but apparently still draws power.

there are fuel injector cleaners available - not the additive for the fuel tank - its a pressurized system that attaches to the fuel rail - the existing fuel line is temporarily blocked so the engine runs on the cleaner only - you might have your local garage do this before investing in a set of new injectors
#533 of 598 difficult starting
May 19, 2006 (6:44 pm)
I have began to have trouble starting the engine of my '95 Toyota Tacoma 2WD when the outside air temperature is 70 degrees or above. It only seems to happen after the engine has warmed up to normal operating temp and I park, shut it down, and them try to restart it. It turns over fine but just won't start. After I try for several minutes, i smell a strange smell like strong exhaust. It will eventually crank, but not till I've worked at it for 10 min or so. If I allow it to totally cool down or if the air temp is lower it doesn't seem to have a problem. Any suggestions on what it could be or how to fix??

#535 of 598 Help! Transmission problems '95 automatic Truck
May 29, 2006 (7:08 pm)
I had my transmission rebuilt and the mechanic is having trouble getting the gears to shift correctly. It is a '95 Toyota 2 wheel drive extended cab, small (quarter ton) pickup. It is a 4 cylinder engine. Does anyone have the specs for how the transmission should shift? Or know where I can look them up online? It has 3 forward gears and overdrive for the 4th gear. The shift lever is on the steering column. Currently it shifts at 20-25, 40-45, and 65-70 for the overdrive which is not right. The engine rpms are too high before going into third and fourth gears. Any information would be appreciated and ASAP. Many thanks.

#537 of 598 '86 22RE 4x4 ...Died :(
Jun 07, 2006 (1:51 pm)
Hi everyone thanks in advance for the help!
As title states, we have an 86 Toyota 4x4 22RE engine.
Yesterday, as I was driving into the mall parking lot, the truck seemed to start to lose power. (I thought - Oh man! Let me get into a spot! - It did - I love my truck Ok sorry, so I left the truck in the spot and waited for bf to get home from work, he went to the truck and it started, but it wants to die right away.
He also mentioned that when holding clutch, brake and gas (otherwise it dies) at about 2000 rpm he heard an awful clunk in the engine. (It does make this "clunk" sound, and its not pretty...)
So this morning, I got the truck towed home, and I would like to see if I might be able to solve the issue before the BF gets home.
The truck starts fine. Will start now, but the second you try to push the gas, it dies. It doesnt seem gas related to me EXCEPT for the fact that I had purchased gas about 5 mins before it broke down. I purchased the same gas we have bought the truck for over 5 yrs, from the same place, so I dont think it will be tainted gas.
Any help you can offer would be super, I do have some mechanical ability and do understand most parts, so dont be afraid to help me, LOL

I’m a Soldier currently stationed in German and my 2002 Tundra O2 oxygen sensor just went out right at 75,000 miles. The dealer here does not sale Toyota trucks and they are not aware of any technical bulletins with an extended warrantee. If anyone knows where I can get my hands on this warrantee information I would certainly appreciate your help…..
