AnswerLeave the engine off over night and thru the next day until you do the work. THis will help bleed off the pressure. With all the tools in hand and the new filter standing by put yourself under the car next to the filter. Have a few rags and a jar or something to catch the fuel the will leak out of the lines. Also have a tool like a screw driver you can put in the hose to help lessen the leaking gas. Your under the car and ready to do the work. Remove the hose that is on the gas tank side and put the screwdriver in the hose. Now take the other hose off and remove the filter. Put the new filter in place just like the one you took out. Hook up the hose's in the reverse order and ensure the clamps are snug. Clean up all the mess and drippeed fuel. Water down the area if alot spilled and then turn on the car. Watch for any leaks and fix if necessary. Jonathon

The fuel filter is clogged and needs replaced. The second problem could be the fuel injectors are not pumping sufficient fuel to the engine.

The vehicle weight is located on the front drivers side door jamb on the placard.

Unknown year - In front of the drivers side rear wheel. It's bolted to the frame. On my 1994 4runner it's bolted to the frame on the PASSENGER side about midway between the front and rear wheels. Toyota states you should never have to replace a fuel filter as they are designed for life; unless you know for a fact you have purchased bad gas. On my '96 Limited it's on the left frame rail underneath the car, almost directly beneath the driver's seat. Good idea to replace it every 100,000 miles or so. On my 1986 4runner EFI, it's bolted to the engine block underneath the fuel rail. I've had to replace it once before. But in any engine configuration find where the fuel enters your engine (either carburetor fuel supply, or the fuel rail on EFI) and trace the line back toward the source (gas tank) somewhere in that line will be the filter, and they can look very different from eachother, I know mine just looks like a big metal canister.

Does not have a cabin air filter. Doubt if you could retrofit the air intake for the HVAC.

Its connected to the Fuel Pump inside of the gas tank

Obviously, very similar to the answer for the 1988 fuel filter. Damned if you dont have to replace these things about every 7 years. On an 87 you start at the gas tank and follow the line. But, after you get under there, by the back wheelwell passengerside, if you have to move forward you missed it. It is easy to find and easy to replace. This also applies to a 1988 Toyota Pickup. Just in front of the rear passenger tire.

The 1986 4Runner could be losing mileage for several reasons. The engine could need a tune up. The fuel filter could need changing. The engine could have high mileage, causing lower fuel economy. Or the transmission could be slipping slightly.

Some special editions of the 1st generation Toyota 4Runner came stock with 31x10.5-15 sized tires. If you contact the parts department at your local Toyota Dealership you can get the speedometer gear for this tire size, as long as you keep the stock gear. I have heard of people cramming 33 inch diameter tires with no modifications to the vehicle however I would not recommend this due to rubbing issues.

The price varies, but it should in the range of $1000-3000 + transmission.

The 1996 Toyota Celica and a 1994 Toyota Celica both run the same oil filter. The part number in a Ryco Oil filter is Z386 From 1986 the front wheel drive Celicas all used the same filter. Even the GT4 models still used a Z386

the fuel filter should be located just below to the right of the air filter box. this is in the right side of the engine compartment. to change the fuel filter you must remove the air filter box. the top fitting is a banjo fitting and the bottom fitting is a standard screw in flared fitting.

To The Owner of the 1986 Pontiac 6000: I am the owner of two 1985 6000 STE's and my fuel filter is an inline filter on the right side of the car. It is about the size of a soda can. First, shut of power so when you remove the fuel filter, very little fuel will come spurting out. Next, after removing the old filter, plug in a new filter, then restore power.
