My 4runner wont start sometimes second day this has been going on.


Asked by Jun 25, 2013 at 03:08 PM about the 1994 Toyota 4Runner 4 Dr SR5 V6 SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just replaced the fuel filter yesterday it was in really bad shape. I could barley blow thrue the filter ,but when I did a milky white fluid came out. My truck ran great all day yesterday, but this morning it would not start again. I went and got a new fuel pump was getting ready to put it when I tried to turn it over one last time. It started right up this time. I can hear the relay clicking behind the clove box, so am confused now to what the issue is.

Since the fuel filter was so clogged, the fuel pump motor might be burned out. If the fuel pump is original, I'd replace it.
