SR5 Engine Problem
Hi, I'm new to the forum and also to 4x4 trucks.
I will shortly acquired an '83 Toyota SR5 4 cylinder Long Bed from a close friend who is the original owner. He's taken very good care of it but it has developed a problem or two recently he can't seem to figure out so I'm hoping the forum membes might be able to help me figure out what the problem/s might be??
He said the enging shakes a fair amount, I'll have to pin down when that is, and is lacking power too. I believe he's checked a number of things, sorry I don't have a list of what he's done at the moment, but hasn't corrected the problem.
I'm thinking that possibly the timming chain needs to have the tensioner adjusted, I assumme there is an adjustment on the timing chain or the chain needs to be replaced?
Of course it could be as simple as a leaking vacum advance line if there is one? Or possible a broken motor mount?
I need to look up a breakdown of the Truck and engine parts.
If any of you have experienced similiar things kindly let me know.
Your help is appreciated.
