1991 Toyota Pickup Problems
The timing chain can develop a rattling noise caused by failing timing chain guides. This is often due to extended mileage intervals between oil changes that allows the oil to become dirty and abrasive which wears away the timing chain guides until they fail. The timing chain and guides should be inspected at each valve adjustment, otherwise serious engine damage may result.
The Ignition Coil wire insulation is often rubbed through by the Primary wiring harness which will cause a stalling/no-start condition. The coil wire will need to be replaced and the primary harness will need to be repaired and re-routed.
Our technicians report that by 100,000 miles, the ignition key tends to wear out and should be replaced or it may not work as well in the door locks or ignition lock cylinder.
Over the time the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system may become plugged with debris, the oxygen sensor may also be getting slow or 'lazy' around this time. When servicing or cleaning the EGR system, it is a good idea to replace the oxygen sensor because it works in tandem with the EGR system.

Most of the underside still original parts, most parts are pretty cheap and easy to replace. 22re engine that runs like new, transmission took a crap right around 208,000 miles due to pin falling out of 4th gear. Quick fix of 2 grand, runs like a champ again with 211,295 miles. A/C non existent anymore, but could scramble an egg on the dash during a blizzard. learned that if one of the four, battery, alternator, electrical, and starter, decides to quit...the others will soon follow. very durable and reliable, takes me to Nogales and back (140 miles) every Saturday for the past 9 months without fail. All in all, best investment I could have made for first truck.
bullet proof best buy i ever made
