1995 Toyota T100 Problems
At higher mileages, (125,000-150,000) the automatic transmission may not shift correctly. This can be caused by the throttle position sensor being out of adjustment or a shift solenoid needing to be replaced. Typically the transmission does not need to be completely overhauled.
If the engine will not crank over, the most common problem is the starter. These will tend to go out at about 100,00-125,000 miles. Sometimes it is only the starter solenoid, but often the complete starter (including solenoid) needs to be replaced.
On vehicles with a manual transmission, worn shift bushings can cause the transmission to pop out of gear, especially when coasting down in 1st or 2nd gear. Replacing all the shift linkage bushings is pretty straight forward and not expensive and will commonly correct this concern.

I purchased my '96 T100 last Feb. with 312K (now @ 327K). The first thing I did was purge the trans with synthetic atf (I had great luck doing this in my '81 pick up with a 3vz/auto from an '88 runner with over 300K). After driving for a few months I decided to plow with it this winter. I am amazed at how much pep this truck has right off idle, it does however seem to lag at around 65mph (i...
I bought this truck brand new and have put 430,000 miles on it. Still has the original engine and clutch. It is still running strong. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it.
I have actually had the pleasure of seeing and driving one of these trucks with more than 300k miles on it. I would have to rate it an excellent truck because of how well it still performs and drives. Toyota could have made the cams direct gear drive and put hydraulic auto adjust valves in the unit which would have made it much more maintenance free. Standard glass headlights would have been a ...
