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.ignition lock cylinder.

Toyota Pickup Reviews
1989 Toyota truck,No Spark have replaced the distributor the coil the coil igniter the computer the battery the coolant temp sensor ! What can a girl do next?
I have had mine for over 13 years - its been in two accidents and still runs like a champ. I haul rocks and wood and junk all the time and it keeps on going. Just timing belt change, brakes and belts. though I have to do ball joints and muffler in the near future. Great in the snow and fine off road. Its been a loyal friend and I would like to keep it forever.
I agree with all the praise of this vehicle. Unfortunately after 192500 I noticed it started running hot. Three days ago it overheated due to no coolant. Filled the radiator and the next day the truck will not start. I checked the oil- and it seems to be mixed with the coolant. (chocalate-brown runny fluid). Advise on internet says blwon head gasket or even a cracked head. OUCH!!!! any advise...
