Sounds like an interesting lawsuit!?
I would not expect the computer to be exact but rather within a 5% error range which is fairly typical of all cars I own. Buy a GPS or 2 and you will find that most cars typically overread slightly on speed and also on the odometer. My BMW has a 3% odometer and a 6% speedometer overread at speeds above 40MPH. It helps in keeping me out of Highway Patrols sights. Remember that if you change tire size, or any gearing you will also need to either recalibrate or account for that change.
My 4Runner (2005 V8 4WD) appears to be very accurate with speed and odometer. The computer is optimistic by about 2 MPG, but I just adjust for it. It's not a Cessna airplane so if its a bit out it is of no great concern.
Be aware that GPS's also have slight errors which typically relate to reception so they may also contribute to the error if you check it this way.
#1105 of 2607 Squeaky A/C fan on 2001 4Runner
Jul 14, 2005 (3:37 pm)
I have a very annoying problem that seems to be getting worse in that the vent/AC fan has begun squeaking constantly when the fan is turned on to any level. I assume that it needs to be lubricated but I'm not sure if the fan is accessible to me without having to tear out the dashboard.
Anyone ever have this problem before and is the fan easy to get to? It seems to be somewhere in the area behind the radio in the center of the dash? At least that's where the noise seems to come from. What would the proper lubricant be, dry (graphite) or wet???
Thanks for any help!
#1106 of 2607 Sulfur Smell - tailpipe extension

Does anyone know if a tailpipe extension leading exhaust to the side of the car eliminates the problem of the sulfur smell with the back window down?

Does somebody have the owner's manual? there is a section that refers to the security of the radio, and the procedure to enter the code, can somebody type those instruction here. I don't know, but maybe the reset procedure also is there.

I have a 1995 toyota 4runner v6 engine that idles rough when stopped, but smoothes out when when i give it gas. Why? I could hopefully fix it myself if i have a directions to go in. can any help? could it be a fuel injector - if so how can i tell? could it be a burnt valve? any help would be grateful!!

did you figure out the problem yet? I'm experiencing this with a 1991 4runner V6 automatic.

I have the same problem So I changed the following items. Spark plugs, wires,and Distributor Cap and Rotor. I gain more power when accelrating but still had rough idle and hesitation on accelaration. The shop manual suggest checking the water temperature sensor and the EGR gas temperaure sensor when I fined the list of possible causes I will posted it for you. I put a 14 k resistor into the EGR gas temperature sensor plug to simulate the sensor and make the ECU think the sensor was good. This took care of the hesitation on accelaration but still have rough idle. When update when i fix it
#1112 of 2607 Ignitor
Jul 17, 2005 (5:19 am)
91 V6 4runner. Replaced the ignitor with a used one 9 months ago and am now down again. Truck turns over but does not spark. tested coil and it is fine. Would a bad rotor or bad distributor stop it from sparking? I think it is the ignitor again.
#1113 of 2607 Creaking noise in right rear wheel well
Jul 17, 2005 (5:44 am)
I have less than 600 miles on a 05 4runner and I just noticed a creaking noise near the right rear wheel well. This noise occurs especially when I'm making a turn, and it's becoming quite frequent and annoying. I have removed all loose item in the storage compartment but it makes no difference. Any ideas?
