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.
If the vehicle will not crank over, the most common problem is the starter, which tend to fail at about 100,00-125,000 miles. Sometimes it is only the starter solenoid contacts, but often the complete starter (including solenoid) needs to be replaced.
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.

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 hate my truck, it was given to me as I was out of work and needed a truck, I would rather push a dodge! All I do is work on this truck, and I only drive it in town. would NEVER but a toyota!
