    I don’t understand why my toyota hilux surf, 1993 model does goes very slowly up the hill on full throttle. The speedometer gauge on the dash board is also not working and there is oil leak from the turbo and wets the airhose and the engine. Please, someone rectify this problem for me.

    I have same problem with one Mr, “lameck” (13 October 2011) on my surf hi-lux with 2L Te EFI diesel engine, however I have no code to refer to. My mechanic suspects that something is wrong with the injection pump which has several sets of electrical wires (at least three sets) connected to it.
    A set of wires connected to fuel shut solenoid, one red/black wire when tapped momentarily to the ground side of circuit crank starts the engine but for not more than 3 secs. then puffs out. I not sure if the polarity was correctly reinstalled or otherwise inadvertently altered during diagnostic test run, or a fuse or a rely may have been defective. One suspected cause of the problem is the electronic control box, but I can”t believe Toyota will design a diesel engine that will solely be dependent on electronic durability or competence, otherwise it may be extremely vulnerable to circuit overheating or humidity. I hope, nevertheless, if this is the case, hope I could easily be able to convert my 2L TE EFI engine Injection Pump to run my engine on a purely mechanical unit without going into the trouble of altering other electronic circuit wiring. Anyone pls. advice me, tnx.

    Most of the problems can be solved with a tuneup, plugs and check timing ,bad timing will cause hard starting,the other problems maybe with the fuel ,check filters and replace
