In your 1987 Toyota Cressida the coldhot meter shoots up to hot after driving but then will go back to normal while driving?
I would check the electric fan (if so equipt), when the engine stops the hot water is not circulated it needs the fan to cool it. When they get older the thermometer quits doing it's job.
In your 1987 Toyota Cressida the coldhot meter shoots up to hot after driving but then will go back to the middle?
Why is my 1990 Toyota Cressida suddenly spiking all the way up to redline in temperature and then returning to normal?
I had the same problem with my 1989 Toyota cressida and when I had it looked at they said it was because the temperature gauge kept getting stuck and when it got loose it would fly way up into the red line and then return to normal like yours, you should get it replaced so that your car would send out unnerssisary engeint coolent
That is the button that changes the shift points and hold points on your transmission gear shifting. pwr is for more aggressive driving. down shifts quicker and holds the gear longer in the rpm band before shifting to the next gear....or leave it off for normal driving for economy.

The idle is preset at factory. No adjustment provisions are provided. In cooler temperatures, it will take a little longer for the idle to come down. If the vehicle continues to have a higher than normal idle, then you will need to take it to a shop where they can diagnose the problem. Driving around with a higher than normal idle can damage the transmission.
How much horsepower does a 1998 V6 3.4L Toyota Tacoma with a KN intake system and throttle body spacer have?
190 Horsepower which is stock for this engine. The K&N filter will add almost no horsepower at normal driving rpms. It will help some but only at higher rpms, which is a range that you will not be driving in. These type free flow filters only help in a racing environment, and do almost nothing for day to day normal driving. As to the TB Spacer, it does nothing to increase horsepower. I know you…
If your truck has manual locking hubs you will have to manual turn them and then shift the shifter into the 4x4. But make sure you do not leave your locking hubs locked for everyday driving. It can tear them up. Also in 4wd your gas mileage will go down and it will be harder to stear, this is normal.
Driving pretty normal (not extremely sporty) I get around 8 liters / 100 km, driving 50:50 highway and inside cities. When giving effort (slow starting, rolling out if possible etc) I can get to 7 1/2 - 8 liters/100km. My neighbour who also has a 2001 RAV4, driver mainly 80 km/h zones (almost no traffic lights, long straight pieces of road) and is driving around 6.9 liters/100 km (which is the best he go so…
If you have been driving the car for some time, you should have noticed on many occasions that the needle on the temp gauge rises to a certain place and usually stays right there. If the needle, in normal driving, is rising higher than it used to, and staying there, you do need to get that checked out, yes, because that obviously isn't "normal".
