#257 of 460 1992 Toyota V6 4x4 extra cab pickup temperature gauge not working
Nov 07, 2006 (7:57 pm)
I have a 1992 Toyota Pickup 4x4 V6 extra cab 141K miles and I just noticed that the temperature gauge is not working at all. I was out in the truck on a day when it was cold and the heat was working just fine (not sure if this is relevant or not). My question is: How can I test the gauge to make sure it is working OR how can I determine that it is the Thermostat that has gone bad.
Thanks for any help.

I looked in my Haynes manual and it looks like the temperature sensor for the dashboard guage is near the thermostat housing, at the front of the intake manifold. I know on my 4 cyl it's the sensor with the single thin wire, the one with 2 wires is for the computer. The picture in the manual looks like both of the sensors are right next to each other. First, check and see if the wire leading to it is OK. If the wire is OK, then take off the connector, and hook up a jumper wire from the wire connector to the block, then turn on the ignition - don't start the truck. If the gauge now shows hot, then you need a new sensor. If you have to replace the sensor, make sure you use some teflon tape on the threads so it doesn't spring a leak.

My friend has a pick up with a 22re and said that it was up under the intake manifold. The manual says to access it from the front passenger side wheel well, taking off wheel and inner skirts. When he and his grandfather(a former mechanic/auto teacher) did it, they said it took about an hour. I havent done one, but good luck.
#262 of 460 1987 22r to 22re conversion
Nov 08, 2006 (2:59 pm)
I recently picked up 2 1987 4x4 pickups with 22r's. The junkyard is willing to sell me all of the components to do one conversion to a 22re on one of the pickups. Does anyone know if the conversion is worth it?(i.e. mpg, power, other expenses)

#264 of 460 95 pickup 22RE throttle body problems
Nov 27, 2006 (10:21 pm)
My 95 pickup has been giving me problems with the throttle body lately. It will stick slightly open while driving. It's not noticeable while moving, but when you come to a stop the engine is idling high. When I get stopped I can open the hood and physically grab the throttle and close it, that gets it back to normal idle, but of course that's not convenient to do in traffic. I've already removed the throttle body and cleaned and oiled it thoroughly. I even went so far as to get the pricy Toyota brand "throttle body cleaner". I also cleaned the inside of the intake. When I do give it a good cleaning and lubing it works OK for a little while, but, once again, it's not practical. A cleaning might last 300-500 miles before it starts sticking again.
The throttle cable seems to move with hardly any effort, so I don't think it's bound or kinked anywhere. I've also adjusted the stop screw on the throttle plate and the dashpot, as well as tightened up most of the slack in the cable. In a way it really just seems like my return springs are worn out. Unfortuantely the dealership won't sell just the springs, and they're telling me a new throttle body is almost $500. Has anyone had a problem like this before, or could maybe point me in the right direction?

I am having the same problem. I have taken it to multiple places as well and no one seems to be able to figure it out. However, recently the problem has escalated to this happening while i'm actually driving and the truck will not allow me to go over about 3,000 RPMs or it will just basically shut down until the rpms drop and then it will allow me to increase the rpms again until they hit the 3K mark. This allows me to drive about 35 mph in 5 gear. trust me it's pretty awesome going 35 on the freeway. If you get to the bottom of this please let me know. I'm figuring it must be a computer problem of some kind.
