I'm so sick of working on this thing. Use blue silicone high heat. I'm assuming to do so is going to require at least a little knowledge on how an engine works, and even more so how a turbo works. Faults: All I can really say is that when I got the truck, the front drivers side seat was ripped on the side where all these seats rip. Faults: Water pump shot at 86,000.
Amazingly, Toyota has delivered nearly 2 decades after the truck was built. My only complaint is it has a bench seat and it's not real comfortable. No Review Date: 13th August, 2003 I'm afraid you're not the only person in the world. Open the windows, and the mileage goes down a bit. General Comments: I may be the only person in the world to have such misfortune with a Toyota truck, but this truck has cost me dearly. I didn't keep the '84 for more than about 10 months and put about 18,000 miles on it. It usually has the directions also.
As long as you prepare for the impending doom of rust in later models, nothing will come between your Toyota and piling up mileage. Anyways it started right up and like it was new. Make sure both bolts are tight and away you go. The pickup should have locking hubs so you dont need to get out. I can't understand these people that claim this thing is good on gas, because it has always been awful with about 17 mpg. It will connect to fitting that is about 8 inches long with a rounded end on it as it bolts into the engine.
Width of all models was 66. The reason to replace both of these is that they are prone to failure and you will have them off anyway. Drain the fluid by unscrewing the bottom bolt on the differential, with your oil catch pan ready. But nobody said it was a luxury vehicle. Depends on how you drive it. Remove coolant from bottom of radiator petcock. At 111,892 the Air Conditioning went hot.
The base engine was a 2. At 108,595 the Timing chain jumped. I sold it because I wanted out of car payments. Yes Review Date: 29th July, 2003. The automatic transmission is rather slow getting to 60 mph for highway driving, but that is also to be expected for a 4 cylinder engine that makes 108 hp. I love the 4x4 ability, it definitely comes in handy up here in New England. Wheelbase for regular-cab models was 103 inches and 121.
I don't know where to begin, but first off I must mention I bought my 94 xtra cab 4x4 4 cyl because I had such great luck with my 88 toy, 6 cyl. Regular-cab models had a length of 174. The pump kits comes with everything you need except for the tools which is not much. The towing package on the truck is also very usefull, Uhaul can thank me for renting their trailers more than once! General Comments: At 108000 I had to replace the Timing Chain. Lift the whole thing off and tuck it to the side.
I have never owned another vehicle that's lasted longer then payment book, my Toyota was paid off 1998 still running great today. You should see the thermostat. At 55, I get about 24 mpg. And 4x4 great fun in snow!!!! I bought the '84, '85, '94, and '96' brand new. Just don't expect amazing speed.
It just wont give up! At 70, I get about 20 mpg. General Comments: Toyota is one of the most dependable names when it comes to 4x4 trucks!!! I had a 1984, a 1985, a 1989, a 1994, a 1996, and finally a 1995 Toyota pick up. Make sure that you get a new gasket kit with the new thermostat. For my 3500 investment I feel like I got a good value for the money and I will continue to buy Toyota pickups in the future. I now have 130k on it and it chugs anti freeze just as bad as it chugs gas. The paint has held up really well. The interior on the regular cab is cramped and the ride gets a bit rough sometimes.
This '94 truck is definitely a keeper!. I'm not exactly sure what Toyota calls it, but its function is to make the mixture richer for cold engine operation. Since I have owned it I have rebuilt the rear end, because somehow the pinion nut got loose and ruined the bearings. I had the Head refurbished since the timing chain caused three valves to bend. The shifter need only be moved into the correct position to go into 4 wheel. Replaced exhaust manifold three times. All were 4X4's with the 22R 4 cylinder engine except for the '96.
Overall, this is a great truck, and if anyone is considering getting even an older model Toyota Truck, don't even hesitate. Also look on the passenger visor. Remove 4 screws holding in instrument cluster. I too own one of these nightmares. Check the discussion area for more info. The harmonic balancer has broken, the valves tick and clank and stick, even though the oil is and has been religiously changed, and now the head is leaking somewhere and I simply can't stand to look at it to fix the thing. It's a truck, and it was a designed at a time where trucks were built to be much more utilitarian than they are today.
