i had an 84 fj60 that had the same problem. My fan clutch had siezed up. if your clutch is leaking oil then it's blown, or if your fan has free play when wiggled like the bolts are loose, it's also blown. your fan should spin freely with the engine off. simple fix. cost me 49 for the clutch.
#29 of 31 1997 Toyota 4Runner Acceleration Problem
Jul 17, 2010 (4:17 pm)
I have a 1997 Toyota 4Runner with about 220000 miles on it. I love it. Recently though it's been making a weird noise whenever I hit the gas and it takes longer to accelerate. And when I take my foot off the gas the noise stops. I've been told so many different things on what it could be and I rather just go into a shop and tell them what I want fixed, instead of them charging me $100 to tell me what I need fixed and charge me again to fix it. Or if it's something I can do myself, I'm game. Any ideas?
#30 of 31 Manual 97 SR5 Loud Noise
Oct 12, 2010 (3:33 pm)
My 97 SR5 has 122,000k. No problems since buying back in 2006 with 80,000 until recently. About 6 months ago I started noticing that the car makes a loud clunking/ thud noise when I have the clutch in and I'm coming to a stop but not pressing the brakes to stop. I that it was the brakes sticking but not according to the mechanic I took it too. This problem does not occur all the time. Mainly when the car is still cold or not driven for more than a few minutes. So has anyone had this problem??? Is it the clutch, trans, rear bearings ??? Would really like some help or suggestions if anyone has experienced similar problems with a manual 3rd generation. Thanks!
