Haven't heard of vapor lock with electronic fuel injection. That was a problem when vehicles had a carburetor. What seems to be the problem with your vehicle?

go have your engine scanned to see what the problem is the o2 sensor is not the only part in the emissions system

dirt deposits on the lifters. i have heard using mobil 1 synthetic will fix this problem. You may also want to consider a having a engine flush done. I had this problem with the v6 in my 97 Rodeo with 135k miles; solved the problem for me. price was reasonable.

I have heard of this a few times in the past on all different types of cars. The most common problem that I have heard of is a clogged catalytic converter.

I'd check the throttle cable or the kickdown cable. That squeal you heard in the engine compartment might have been a cable breaking.

I have never heard of a mpsr light. If you are referring to the Check Engine light it means there is a problem with the emissions system.

This engine is known for having a sludge problem. Toyota extended the warranty for 7 years (total). I don't know if this caused your problem but you may want to look into reimbursement from Toyota if sludge was the cause.

Space is essentially a vacuum. Sound needs a medium to travel through to be heard. Therefore the sound of a rocket engine cannot be heard in space.

What are your referring to? Never heard of White Spirit.

You can assume the problem is with the processor, the BIOS, or the motherboard.

The A/C system compressor operates when in the defrost mode. If the noise is also heard when running the A?C it is more than likely a problem with the compressor/pulley.

Never heard of a top speed sensor. Vehicles are usually governed by the computer. The only way to remove the governor is to have the computer reprogrammed.

What exactly is it. I have never heard of this?

User Avatar

No it is not. But I have heard it could be damaging over time to the A/C compressor to turn off the engine with the A/C on.

User Avatar

None that I ever heard of. But there are people who solve problems.

Most probably the noise is piston slap, this noise is heard when the engine is cold and disappears when the engine is hot. if the slap is very strong when the engine is cold and the noise becomes less when hot but still the noise can be heard.
