Texas Breakdown

Post by Grizz »

any experienced 4Runner mechanics,,
my 99 sr5 4wd v6 with a P0303 and stromg miss Yesterday plus 2 others of that ilk. swapped #3 coil pack to 1 and the code went with it. new coil and great expectations. But Nooo. P0306 took over the miss duty. Aargh.
Swapped in a new plug. Great expectations. But NO WAY! SAME MISS SAME P0306. So now i am fixing to replace that injector. in 100+° heat.
.
here's my Question. Is it possible on this 5VZFE engine to remove the plenums and fuel rail WITHOUT removing the pax side stuff? it seems feasible, but has it been done?

Can't help with the 4Runner, but I had a KLR 650 for years. Most reliable bike I've ever owned. Still kicking myself for letting it go.
Oddly enough, I've been looking over used ones lately.
Relly wanting another one.

I dont know the answer, but Ive found the best answers to my 4runner issues here. Its been the result of numerous google searches, this was where most good info came from.

KL650 sounds good. is it a lot heavier? i like how light the 250 is. im going to try to rewind the battery coil to 12v for lights. the ignition coil is ok the way it is...

I had an early KLR, a 600cc before the 650s came out. It was a 80/20 street/off road bike in my opinion. It was pretty heavy and I didn't think the front end geometry was very good on dirt roads. I now have a Suzuki DRZ400S which doesn't have the top end of the KLR but it's much lighter and a better off road bike. Besides, it gets 65 mpg so is a very economical bike for riding at a leisurely pace. I put a 4 gallon tank on it which will take me close to 250 miles between fill ups.

sounds good Walt. I'm happy with the small bike. I would consider a larger tank. I have a flatpack gas can i can lash on. havent done much with the bike yet but chew up weeds around the house. i might try to mobilize my road bike for a trip or two... while i maybe still can...

The bigger tank is why I bought the KLR. I could go 400 miles on a single fill up. I didn't think it was all that heavy, but you better be over 6' if you're going to ride one. It's tall. I've been looking at all types of bikes this summer, the bug is back big time. What I really want is a BMW 1200 GS. That one is not only heavy, but was designed by guys that are a minimum 6'3 and named Gunter! I can ride it, but really have to watch what I'm doing. That keeps leading me back to the KLR, but that single cylinder monster must have a piston the size of a coffee can!
A couple summers ago I had a Harley 1200 Sportster for about 15 minutes. I hated it and couldn't get rid of it fast enough. No offense to the HD guys, it's just not me. I've been looking at the Kawasaki Concours. Nice ride and a more comfortable riding position for me, plus they go fairly cheap. Especially the used ones.

Check your compression on that cylinder. Possibly needs another coil pack. Curious if a bad cam position sensor could cause that.

Sorry your having problems bro and hope ya get it resolved soon, imo all this new tech stuff is worthless to many sensors and stuff to go wrong.
We`re having problems with this Intrepid going into limp mode, had a speed sensor code fixed that but problem is still there, i hate these kind of issues.

Cool!
The R50, at least to me, has to be one of the classiest bikes ever built. :D

I rode an 84 model R80RT for years but finally sold it because I had bought an R1100R which has way more power, better suspension and way better brakes. I still ride that and regularly get 52 mpg. The guy who bought the R80 came up all the way from Marfa, TX to north central NM to buy the bike. I gave the young fellow a heck of a deal for coming all that way.
