I started up my 1998 Toyota 4runner today for the first time in 2 weeks. I went to go brush the snow off of my back windshield and I noticed smoke coming out from the rear drivers side wheel well. I looked under the car from behind to check if the smoke was just blowing sideways from the exhaust but it wasn't. So I turned the car off and took a closer look at the wheel well and seen that the only place that smoke could be coming from was the fuel tank, and I proceeded to start the car back up. Once I started the engine I noticed that the smoke was coming from the direction of the fuel tank so I immediately turned the engine off. I looked under the car to see if there was a gas leak or a tear in one of the gas lines but there wasn't. What could cause this to happen? And is it a bad idea to drive my car until I find time and money to have it looked at?

When I turn the key to start my 4 runner, all of the dash lights come on, the radio comes on, the heater blows, but the engine doesn't ignite. After about 6 attempts, it fires. There is no clicking sound or any sound for that matter while attempting to start the engine. The battery is new. It only does this when it's cold. If the engines been running for a while, it fires on the first try. Any idea what's wrong?

I have been having a problem with the TRAC warning light going on while driving around curves (ie. freeway onramps or connectors)and recently had two incidents where the car felt like it was stalling at speeds above 65. The front end of the car felt like it was stalling, losing control and struggling. Has anyone here had this problem? Was it expensive to repair?

I have recently had a bad vibration while excellerating as well as maintaining speeds over 60 MPH. The check engine light is on with a lean fuel indicator and O2 sensor. Is this the problem or something more?

i am trying to locate the SRS sensors on a 1997 Toyota 4Runner. I'm also wondering if these sensors normally need replacement after a collision and airbag deployment.

That is very expensive here so I'm hoping is it not. Help
