The motor was recently rebuilt and has been sitting for five years in the truck. I ran all the gas out thinking that would be good.the fuel pump works but I can't get gas to the intake.

Asked by Aug 20, 2015 at 05:25 PM about the 1994 Toyota 4Runner 4 Dr SR5 V6 4WD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Should I just take the fuel rails and injectors
and soak them in something? And why am I
not getting gas to the top?

1 Answer


Most likely there's varnish in the fuel lines. I'd recommend replacing the fuel pump and thoroughly cleaning the gas tank, fuel lines, and fuel injectors. Five years is a long time. HTH -Jim
