    97 LX450 Crank strong but No start

    FIXED! Rookie mistake on my part. On initial survey I noticed the high tension lead from the coil to the dizzy had a broken clip on the coil and the rubber boot was ajar. I had taken the NGK wire off and replaced it with my known good OEM trail spare to ensure a good lead and connection...

    97 LX450 Crank strong but No start

    We know the distributor moves since we had spark on #1 and #2 plugs. I'll shoot you a PM.

    97 LX450 Crank strong but No start

    Thanks! We can add that to the list. It “looked” in park, but that’s easy enough to verify. It’s not the Park safety switch. When those go bad there’s no cranking.

    97 LX450 Crank strong but No start

    There is an IAC. No codes, but I can read up on the test procedures. Same for fuel pressure.

    97 LX450 Crank strong but No start

    Still broke. Latest update: 1. The ECM voltages highlighted in post #17 all checked good. 2. Correct voltage was on both sides of the IGN fuse. 3. Continuity was verified across all the fusible links. 4. Voltage was checked across 50 amp fuse (AM2?). 5. There's a single wire to a...

    97 LX450 Crank strong but No start

    I did not. I assumed the solid CEL with the key on meant good-to-go there.:(

    97 LX450 Crank strong but No start

    Yeah, maaaaybeeee. When I pulled the fuel return hose off the pressure regulator, it was a strong stream. But I have nothing to compare it to, so that's a relative statement. I couldn't find any obvious leaks. It's funny, I've had my 80 series over 15 years. Done all my own maintenance...

    97 LX450 Crank strong but No start

    Thanks for all the help on this, Satchel. OP has limited mobility, so its probably easier for me to run by and check the voltage across the IGN fuse. I can work backward (fusible links) or forward (ECM pins) from there. That'll probably be all the time I have for awhile. If the fuel...

    97 LX450 Crank strong but No start

    I did not do the checks on page 66. I ran out of time today. Do I just use my meter in the back of the harness, or do I have to take the harness connectors off and check the ECM? I assumed since we had a CEL and a voltage light, the fusible links were good. I see the importance of what you...

    97 LX450 Crank strong but No start

    Gents, looking for a little help here. I stopped by to see if I could help getting ORL's truck running and got stumped. We referenced the Emergency Troubleshooting Procedures in the FAQ. Here's what we know: 1. There is a CEL when the key is first turned on. 2. He had a P0120 code. We...

    300 series rumors???

    The video is not about the 300 series at all. It is an excellent video explaining the Toyota corporate mindset, for better or for worse...

    Collier County Janes Dr and Picayune updates

    For those in SWFL, I hit Jane's Scenic Drive and the Picayune last week. Jane's Scenic drive: Last year when I drove it, there was a closed gate 6 miles into the drive. Only pedestrians and bicycles past that point. It remains that way. I didn't see a ranger I could talk too, but it appears...

    Fj40 losing power

    Check and clean your grounds. Battery to frame. Starter to frame. And perhaps the alternator to engine block. See Coolerman’s comment in post 6 below. Yours is obviously not the same scenario, but it’s easy to eliminate it as a cause...

    If you like the 200 series, buy one. If you don’t like the 200 series, why would you think you’d like the next iteration?

    Fried wire from alternator

    Yeah. Check your ground to frame, your starter to frame, and your alternator to engine block path. I had an extra ground wire laying around and ran that alternator frame to engine head. Good luck.

    * FJ40 * Engine oiling: Video you must see

    Too bad youtube came along too late. It'd be nice to have some "how to" videos on the 2F from the gurus. Sort of like the inverse of the "how not to build a 2F" thread.
