2000 Toyota Tacoma Q&A
2000 Toyota Tacoma Question: Bad Crankshaft sensor, Computer, ???
Truck running fine all day. Shut off eng for about 30 minutes and cranked back up. Immediately felt misfire/hesitation condition. Got blinking check engine light. Had auto parts store run codes (P0300, P0301 & P0304.) Checked plugs and wires, ok. I have 2 ignition coils; 1 for cylinders 1 & 4 and 1 for cylinders 2 & 3. I'm confused about the the following during troubleshooting. Removing one spark plug wire from the ign coils at a time and cranking engine: When I remove #1 plug wire from aft wire "port" on forward ign coil and crank up engine I get a very intermittant (but strong) spark jumping to nearest ground location. When I do the same thing by removing the #3 plug wire from aft wire "port" on back ign coil, the engine hardly ever stays running and I get the same intermittant spark jumping to nearest ground. Both cylinder 4 and 2 ports on ign coils have a continuous and strong spark jumping to ground when removed one at a time and cranking engine. Someone mentioned a possible bad crankshaft postion sensor. Only other info to add is that I had a check engine light (steady) back in September that eventually went off after a couple weeks. Ran codes at local autoparts store; P0441 HELP Please - ScottTacoma

look at wiring could be rodents eating wires - globalhelper
