1993 Toyota Pickup Problems

At higher mileages (125,000 -150,000) the power steering pump may begin to leak on the 6 cylinder vehicles and could require replacement.

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.

These trucks are known for legendary reliability and toughness, but that has not been my experience. While it certainly has an improvement over the Ford and Chrysler I owned before, much has gone wrong on this vehicle in the 5 years I have owned it that has caused me to doubt the truck’s mythical durability.
