3.0 V6 EFI Engine

Feeler: Anyone on East Coast (northern) got a good running 3.0 V6 to put into a 91 Toyota 4x4 deluxe. I think 88-93 should work, but I am no expert..

Re: 3.0 V6 EFI Engine

Ray I'll keep an eye out down here. I'm guessing this is for Tracey?

Re: 3.0 V6 EFI Engine

Yes it is for Tracie. It may or may not be cheaper to do a swap vs trying to get old one fixed, if its fixable.. It may just be a bad head or blown head gasket.. But, it will cost at least half what a used engine would cost to diagnois..

Re: 3.0 V6 EFI Engine

Ray the years of production for that engine are from 1989-1994.5ish The heads are notorious for being the culprit, I would try Woodwards in PA for either a engine or solid heads. The other thing is Tracie's truck should be looked at closely and find the leak. Its not in her exhaust yet as she has no white smoke.

Re: 3.0 V6 EFI Engine

white smoke out the exhaust is a definate sign of a blow head gasket. my dad's 94 3.0L blew its head gasket 5 days after he put it up fo sale. that sucked. but he got it fixed, and the people who boughtit a year ago i still see them drivin it around and he sold it with 176k on it, so its def gettin close to 200k.

Re: 3.0 V6 EFI Engine

The leak is visible at the drivers side front corner dripping down behind the thermostat housing onto the oil pan lip. Funny thing is, it will not leak at idle.. It can run for 30 minutes warmed up and will not actually hit the red temp line.. But... rev it up for 30 seconds or so and the compression from the cylinder will build up in the upper radiator hose so tight you can squeeze it at all. And once you let the revs drop, there will be some seepage running down the block to the oil pan lip, but usually not enough to leave a puddle.. Anyways, we are working on getting this resolved.. Hopefully Monday will bring some answers..

Re: 3.0 V6 EFI Engine

A 5vz will pretty much bolt right into a Toyota pickup that was equipped with a 3.0. Plus I'm pretty sure the stock tranny will bolt right up with the 3.4, might be a nice option...

Re: 3.0 V6 EFI Engine

Thats an idea I ran around the other day..But, was concerned with how hard it would be to re-configure a 3.4 ECU to work with a 91 3.0... I would think there are several changes between the two.. Maybe not, but there again I don't know..
