I have a 2013 Fourunner SR5 and want to do whatever recommended maintenance is needed at 45k but the dealership prices are so high I cannot afford to take it there.
I took the car to a mechanic and when it was returned to me the four wheel engaging light was blinking. The mechanic said he put it in four wheel drive and then disengaged it but the light kept flashing. He attributed it to an electrical problem but this never existed until he drove it. I imagine a solenoid is stuck somewhere but can someone shed some light on what might be going on here.
Sometimes it needs a little "rev" to get into first. I never have a problem getting into other gears, just first. In the morning the car must be running for 30 mins minimum to get good clean shifts.
Sometimes when it doesn't want to shift i will try to rev it a little to get it to shift. If I just lay on the gas and try to force it, that rarely works. What does work is if I give the gas peddle a little pop. Just a quick rev and it will usually shift.
It just started to happen recently. Mine is a manual transmission. It can be on any surface and will almost not move when on first gear only. Only happens on the first use of the day. thank you
When warmed up, a hard jarring or hard bump when it shifts up or down in low gears.
the gear shift is stuck in Park.
when brake is depressed, the column mounted gear will not shift.
it's an automatic transmission.
This just happened after winter storage.
I have been having this problem since 2011 when the body shop had to repair the roof from severe hail damage. The body shop attempted to diagnose the trouble and had the vehicle sent to electrical shop and they were unable to solve the problem. I too read the engine code when light comes on with right rear bank O2 sensor. The rear defrost has nothing to do with emissions. If the defrost is turned off, the lights will turn off after several restarts and driving around the city. Please help.
I had the motor running and after it warmed up for a while it would cut off like it ran out of fuel but I don't have spark from the coil. At first I could let the motor cool down for an hour or so and it would start back up and then die again after it warmed up but now I can't get it started at all. Timing belt good,rotor in distributor turns normally I can't find crankshaft sensor it maybe in the distributor but I don't know how to test it I don't know if I have a cam sensor that I need to check or not? I did pull the rubber gas line from the fuel pressure regulator. I crank the motor and some fuel did pump out of it but not a lot of pressure. I don't know if fuel pressure on this vehicle would cause it not to get spark of the coil? It doesn't seem to be a Schrader valve on the metering bar .Below the rubber gas line I pulled off the pressure regulator there is below that a banjo nut fuel line connected to the metering bar should I cracked that nut and see if there's pressure there ?Any help you could be would be greatly appreciated I like to get this 94 Toyota forerunner with the V6 3.0 EFI motor and automatic transmission back out on the beach thanks for your help
This is the third time lights have stayed on. Lights come on in same general area when driving down Highway 212. Seems to happen in area between Roberts and Joliet, which is bumpy in spots.
Brake feels like when u need to bleed it brake fluid is full
The water runs out of the engine in two places.
when vehicle is running and you put it in gear the lights come on> My mechanic put out the check engine light> gas cap and pos battery terminal trick did not work> what else can we do ??
The vehicle has new water pump, thermostat, radiator recently flushed. When I drive on flat surface temp gage reads normal however, when I drive up an incline road temp gage goes to red but engines shows no sign of overheating.
Sometimes when I attempt to start my car it will turn abs continue to turn then stall. I attempted a few things and finally opened up the air filter area and was able to start the car. I changed the filter Even though it still looked good. Same problem. I too out to the dealer and asked, they said battery was low and I had it changed. Same problem. Any suggestions for what I try next?

i researched this online and took the advice of a post from your website that said to remove the red portion of the battery for 30 seconds. i did and the lights were off for about a week but then came back on after going over a speed bump. do you suggest i take it into the shop now or try to remove red portion of battery again?

New tires 2 weeks ago. Side to side wobble under 8 mph. Steering wheel not jerking, it just feels like the back of the truck gently moves side to side. Gets faster when the truck goes faster then becomes less noticeable above 8 mph.
Piston was like clean of carbon and looks new
Any time temperature gets below about 30 degrees
Transmission was overhauled. When put back. Transmission was overhauled due to water/oil mix up at the radiator resulted in poor pull up on D, worked fine in 2, and L.
It seems something is still wrong after overhaul. What are the possibilities? any computer resting needed after transmission overhaul?
4wd will not work
Start whistle sound oct 2016. Got louder late dec. Was told my transmission is going out. The gears don't slip,or jerk. Do i need to replace it or is there another cheaper method that can fix it. It has 211,000 miles. I bought it at 196,000 miles
First I had my 4 wheel drive lights flashing so I had the actuator replaced so 4 wheel drive lights no longer appear and it functions fine. Now randomly I have the VSC off/on, ABS, Brake warning lights come on as well. I have a steep driveway and I am noticing when I give my 4runner power to make hill, my gas pedal maxes out and my tires are spinning as if my 4 wheel drive is not working and I have to back down and retry.....getting no where. I feel as if my 4 wheel drive is not functioning when this happens. Why would my 4 Runner be bogging down and loosing power, and why do these other lights randomly come on. Any ideas. I never have trouble with engine light coming on. Engine never bogs down and looses power on otherwise plowed or good roads.
