    My 2002 4Runner 3.4L V6 cost is about $400 in parts which includes timing belt, water pump, tensioner, etc etc... and a wasted afternoon. And I'm slow.

    I'm calling a bum tire.

    I've had el-cheapo tires to weird things like that. Rims are good...shop balanced them...still a vibration that won't go away until you get new tires.

    California is yearly.



    Oh but they CAN! They will insist that you to turn them on and if you refuse, they will simply tell you to go elsewhere. (Effectively enforcing a nonexistent law).

    I still think it's not a head gasket. Too much coolant in the oil.

    You say it's still running? I would just replace what's wrong and roll the dice to see how far she'll go. That all depends...

    Definitely an electrical issue.

    To me, when you get a complete loss of power, that reeks of bad battery cables and a battery cable ground.

    I'm guessing why the ECU won't read is because it has...

    Aren't all fuses running 12v in a car?

    A fuse running a non-12v circuit would be new to me....but knowing modern cars anything seems possible now.

    FYI: AC will always be on if you have the HVAC set on defrost...regardless of your AC setting...it's a standard feature. But it's probably the Torque Converter like suggested.

    If the circuit is blowing fuses and all the devices attached to the circuit check out. Then it's the wiring harness. A wire got partially melted and is shorting.

    If it is AC related, it sounds like your AC clutch is going out. They make a stinky plastic smell right before they go into free wheeling mode...or lock up and burn up your AC belt.

    Little to None? I think Toyota injects some gas into the air stream with their DI design. I think Ford too? This is because a true DI setup becomes a time bomb.

    Anything in the gas won't help the valves on a DI engine. You need something injected into the air flow. Or block anything allowing carbon like stopping recirculating gases.
