20 Most Recent 1996 Toyota Tacoma Questions & Answers


An engine needs 3 things to run, Spark, Fuel, & Compression. If you have verified that you have spark at the plugs, and fuel is making it into the cylinder, and the engine has the proper amount of compression to run... these also have to happen in the correct time. Make sure your timing marks all line up.

The wiring for the CKS may be bad, weak or broken .

Not sure what itnighters are, sorry.

You seem to be describing a flat spot - a hesitation during initial acceleration that is commonly caused by either insufficient spark power or the fuel system being slow to adjust to the new requirements.

A backfire is an explosion in the exhaust system and I wonder if you really meant a spit-back (through the intake), which is common with a fuelling caused flat spot?

Replacing the spark plugs is merely half the job and testing the spark power is the other half...

I suggest you check the fuel pressures and pressure regulator function and the injector spray patterns. Only if all tests good it could be worth testing the oxygen sensor...

I think you have an engine wiring harness issue going on here.

any charge port will evac the system
the compressor will not be running
adding oil is not necessary as there is enough in the replacement compressor
run the vacuum pump for a couple of hours and then lock of the system to see it it holds vacuum

Under vehicle, passenger side, below seating area, front of catalytic converter, mounted in exhaust pipe
Application:

If you are absolutely certain that the battery is ok and charged, check the cables for tightness and corrosion - particularly the black earth cable where it attaches to the engine block/bodywork. Undo the bolts slightly and retighten ..

Before you try anything, can you get a neighbour or friend to boost start/jump start your car?

If it starts ok .. that tells you the starter motor is ok .. and the problem lies with your battery/leads

Have to make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections good. How long since a tune-up? Are there any applicable trouble codes?
If the starter motor won't crank, have to check starter wiring circuits. Usually two voltage circuits at the starter motor. One is battery voltage, hot all the time. The other circuit usually goes hot with the key in the crank position and may be wired through a relay and clutch or neutral switch, depending on the tranny. The ground for the starter motor is usually through the engine block. Any testing, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and functional parking brake is set. Safety is your responsibility when working on a vehicle.

Is it a question 'Does my truck have a recall'. Or is it my truck is the subject of a recall, what do I do'?

It does have recalls, take it to a Toyota dealer.
