Toyota T100 Problems
At higher mileages, (125,000-150,000) the automatic transmission may not shift correctly. This can be caused by the throttle position sensor being out of adjustment or a shift solenoid needing to be replaced. Typically the transmission does not need to be completely overhauled.
At higher mileages (125,00+) the Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor may intermittently stop working, especially when the vehicle is fully warmed up. This can result in illumination of the Check Engine Light and/or an engine stalling problem.
The Throttle Position Sensor can get out of adjustment due to wear in the throttle body or due to carbon build up. This will cause the idle timing to advance more than 30 degrees which will cause very high HC and NOx emissions. Conversely, the Throttle Position Sensors can wear out and not properly advance the timing which causes a lack of power and poor fuel economy.

Toyota T100 Recalls
Toyota is recalling 1990-1995 4Runner, 1990-1995 pickup, and 1993-1998 Toyota T100 trucks because the steering relay rod may crack under stress. This may increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the steering relay rod.

I have a 1993 Toyota T-100 this is the second T-100,my first being a 1996.After having the first the only truck i am happy with is the T-100.Neither of these trucks have ever let me down,they run excellent.and off road they lead the pack.I wish Toyota would go back to building this size truck with the same running gear and motor as the T-100.Clearly there is not a better built truck than the T-100
After 13 years and 339,000 miles this truck is more like an old friend than a vehicle. It has been very reliable and still gets over 20mpg. It is one of the best values that I have ever bought.
