I just wanted to make sure I get the most life out of the truck as possible, and hoping I can get a list of the maintenance I should do at mile intervals?
I just bought a 1996 with 215,000 miles and the check engine light turned on. Auto parts store gave me code 170, and I'm wondering if others have experience with this and have recommendations?
It seems to be in the tunnel between the intake manifold and the engine. I was unaware that there was any water on top of the engine. Is it to preheat the gas before injection?
theywork properly when the head lights are off
after the truck is warm it works perfectly.
I replaced brake booster and everything works except when I drive a few miles then pedal gets hard(the truck stops fine but now brakes are rubbing and getting hot). I pull over and disconnect vacume hose and it releases brakes and I can drive it. When I first start out in morning the pedal has right amount of play before engageing brakes
and breaks worke fine. What could it be? I would appreciate any hepl in this matter. Thank you
I am having a tough time locating a used rear axle for the 1997 T100....was hoping maybe a certain year of Tundra or Tacoma used the same rear axle?? Or a chevy anything?
From what I understand the rear axle is still good, wheel bearings are fine, what replacement parts would be needed???
Truck was making noise everytime step on accelorator
Oil got super duper low because neighborhood garage didn't tighten the filter enough and I didn't check it out until I was under the car changing the crankshaft position sensor.(per the check engine light diagnostic code. The plastic was broken around the bolt holding the sensor in place.
Could the low oil have caused the camshaft to hit the sensor with enough force to break it?
Do I need a new engine? valve job? timing belt is cracked.
120k miles total on truck. I tested the Ignition Control module in a buddy's t-100 so I know that works perfect.
Do I trust a guy that fixes cars or take it to a real mechanic?
Bulbs are ok. wonder if there is a backup light switch? how to locate it?
It feels like someone has hit me from behind or like a slipping. I was told it is 3200.00 to 3400.00 to fix. It occurs more each time I drive it and usually in stop and go driving. The mechanic I took it to couldnt make it act up but he told me not worth it to fix..Is this true? Thank You for your time and knowledge
also the transmission gets stuck in 2nd 3rd and 4th
Relaced plugs,distributor cap,rotor and ignition coil. Ran for a week and died during a big rain storm. What could the problem be?

When it's 70 or warmer I need to push and hold the accelerator pedal about 1/2 way down and then it will start right up . If not it just cranks and cranks. All maintainence including new plugs has been done.
will start after cools down engine is not running hot temp gage normal
It does not happen all the time.
I have already check efi relay and it has power and is good. Checked open relay but have not power to relay. Already checked fuses and they are good. What do I check to find why open relay has no power? Any Ideas?
I've heard it both ways, mostly that they need to be replaced by someone trying to sell me an expensive new set.
My car-nut buddy says they're fine, never need replacing.
But my truck seems to sit a little lower on the driver's side (I'm not THAT heavy, only 175 lbs!) and the suspension seems to squeak sometimes going over the bump into my driveway.
What's the deal?
It had been around 5,000 miles since I had it changed at a shop, and after I put the 5 quarts in that the manual suggested, it read way above full on the dipstick.
My car-repair nut friend thinks I have the wrong dipstick, possibly I got a 4-cyl dipstick for a 6-cyl engine?
But that doesn't explain the missing 2 quarts of oil. The truck isn't burning it, there would be a black cloud following me, and I park every night in my driveway and would spot a leak immediately, but there's none.
I've mistakenly trusted various shops with changing my oil and checking my fluids, but recently noticed a leak in my radiator, so I bought the part and asked a friend to help.
While swapping in the new radiator, my friend disconnected the hose that runs from the transmission to the radiator (I didn't know it did this, I'm not much of a car guy) and he smelled a bit of the fluid that dripped out, around 1/2 cup. He said it smelled bad, burnt.
After the job was done, I started the truck to move it and immediately knew something was wrong. The transmission felt like it was grinding. I shut it off and we checked the fluid level - it didn't register on the dipstick.
We added 3 quarts, and it finally showed on the bottom of the stick, but my friend advised against adding too much, saying it might make a bad problem worse faster.
Now it works, but I can feel it slipping a bit.
Am I totally hosed?
Should I replace the thing or try rebuilding it? Truck has 203,000 miles and I was hoping to keep it a couple more years. Time to replace the entire truck?
I'd rather have a manual transmission, does it make sense to switch now?
I am looking to buy a 98 t100 4x4 187k. All looks good except that when braking quickly, truck pops out of gear. Pops back in when you start back up. Owner said needs a new silenoid. I am a little worried since I do not want to get into a big tranny job. Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated. I plan on taking to dealer to do a prepurchase but want to know if I am just wasting my time?? Thanks!!
