    Surging idle problem, sort of

    Check that the vane in the AFM moves freely, could be grit or buildup sticking it in a certain spot.

    SipLife’s 80’ Toyota Hilux Short Bed 4x4

    Looks like something like this one would fit: AC Compressor fits Toyota Pickup Starlet w/o Clutch (1 year Warranty) R57323 | eBay But it does not look like it comes with the manifold top plates on the compressor. Edit: I looked right past the fact that it also does not come with the clutch...

    Need AC Condenser

    Following up on this. All installed, vad'd and re-charged and so far things are working. The Toyota TSB regarding R134a conversion says to charge with 700g of r134a. Each can is 340g, I only put in 2 cans, so 680g. Since I don't have a gram scale and I did not want to overcharge, so I...

    Need AC Condenser

    Got it installed last night, everything fit up fine. Regarding parallel flow vs OEM...the new parallel flow condenser has 26 refrigerant passages (and supposedly each passage has small tubes inside which makes more surface area for the heat to be exchanged). The OEM condenser INCLUDING the...

    Need AC Condenser

    Ok, I have sortof a resolution...I was scouring eBay and taking a hard look at each listed condenser. There is a listing for an aftermarket condenser made by Pacific Best. It is listed as working for the 4Runner, fittings looked to be in right place, but I was concerned that it does not have...

    Need AC Condenser

    This seller got back to me today and said that they ship from a variety of warehouses across the country, and they checked and this item does not seem to be available. So this seller appears to be doing what most of the ebay sellers (and even non-ebay retailers) are doing, which is to just drop...

    Need AC Condenser

    Thank you, very good idea, and I will call around some local radiator shops tomorrow and see if any of them think they can repair it. Of course, I'll still need to either source a new u-shaped hardline or see if those internal fitting threads can be cleaned up. Appreciate that, can you repost...

    Need AC Condenser

    I'm afraid I've ruined my original condenser. When it was apparent that I wasn't going to be getting my order any time soon, I thought I'd just clean mine out and get ready to re-use it just in case. I was taking off that u-shaped hardline that joins the large condenser to the small condenser...

    Need AC Condenser

    I was hoping you'd have some ideas, I read your thread several times before ordering all my parts...I appreciate the link, that one is out of stock from the seller as well. I'm really starting to think that NOBODY stocks these normally, except Denso and everything is just drop shipped straight...

    Need AC Condenser

    liveoak - thank you for the response. Yeah I inquired about that exact item from the very same seller and they do not have the item in stock. As you also read, I purchased one from another ebay seller, who promptly cancelled my order because they also did not have the item. If you got a...

    Need AC Condenser

    I posted this on Yotatech, but there's been a few AC related threads here on mud lately, so I thought I'd put this here as well. Summary is I'm trying to locate a condenser for my 1988 4Runner and having difficulty, Denso seems to be the only option really for the 4Runner and they are out of...

    Hard start, low idle

    EDIT: Well I didn't really read through your symptoms, doesn't sound like your issue is a heak soak issue like this TSB talks about. I guess very well could be that your cold start time switch is bad, and if you replace, might be a good idea to replace with the updated part number. Thermo...

    Nice truck, I've never heard of coventry conversion, what all does it entail? Love a blue exterior, not so much a blue interior!

    AC Evaporator Issue

    Pappy - thanks again for the info, please do update us all when you get a chance to use the new AC, I've waffled for at least a year on whether I want to spend all that money on mine to go with all new OEM components or whether I need to maybe get one of those parallel flow condensers...in the...

    AC Evaporator Issue

    Pappy - a couple more questions about your new AC setup, not sure where in the country you are, but it says Palm Trees and Cool streams in your location...so I assume it's fairly warm. I live in South Florida where it essentially 70ish in the winter and high 80s in the summer, and it's pretty...

    AC Evaporator Issue

    Pappy - would you mind telling us where you got the flex hoses? Rock Auto did not seem to show the soft AC lines for my 1988 4Runner 22re. Was it the dealer for those? Your vent temp is showing about what, 48deg or so, do you happen to know roughly what ambient temp was? Just curious if we...

    Great deal for $750. I might be able to point you to the 88 FSM if that helps you at all.
