1993 hiace fuel pump relay location please my van runs for about 10 to 20 mins then it is switching the fuel pump

Answers

I am trying to understand your posting. The fuel pump has a fuel stop solenoid attach to the body of the fuel pump, when then ignition switch is turn to the off position, this solenoid stop all fuel entering the inlet port of the fuel pump. This solenoid could be intermittently breaking down, try to substitute it to see if it is your problem,best wishes . Theron Smith from Jamaica

Clive, Cambridgeshire

Toyota Hiace

My venerable 1993 Hiace 2.7 diesel camper is still going great at 145,000 miles but whenever I have been driving it hard, 80mph or up a long hill, another fan switches on. The sound of this fan seems to be coming from under the driver's seat. (this is the mid engine version where access to the engine is gained by lifting up the seats). I've searched many times to find this fan to no avail. Does anyone know where it is and how to get access? Thanks, Clive.

Answers

Clive, I have EXACTLY the same question, have you found anything else out? At least its not just my hiace, i was beginning to worry. Could it be a an oil pump? Mark from Bristol

To begin, only one fan afixed to these Hiace . if the fan is the clutch type you are likely to experience the above symtumn . because of the load going up a hill the fluid in the fan sence it, therefore the fan has to spin a little faster to cool down the engine. Theron Smith from Jamaica

My 2002 Hi Ace had all the symptoms of a blocked EGR valve, as in losing power, engine stops when I slow down, check engine light coming on and sometimes backfiring when this is happening. I found out today that this model does not have an EGR valve, It does it on LPG as well as petrol. Does anyone have any idea what it could be? It does seem to happen when the van has been running all day for 8 to ten hours It is a courier van.

Answer this question

Alan Marshall, Australia

Toyota Hiace

The engine management light comes on occasionally and when it does the engine stops when you slow down or stop. I can then start up again and keep on going till it comes on again.It seems to happen in the afternoon when the engine has been running all day as I am a courier.So is it because it is running too hot even though the temp. Gauge stays at normal.I have replaced the coil,the distributor module,rotor button,plugs and plug leads ,tidied up all the wiring around the distributor .It runs on LPG as well as petrol but the problem happens on both fuels.The whole gas system has been overhauled so now I am and so are many mechanics and auto electricians scratching our heads as to what is causing the problem.Hopefully someone out there has had the same problem and sorted it out. Each time I had someone look at it it appeared to be fixed but then it happened again and again,so frustrating. One answer I have just read here said it may be the EGR valve.So please I will be happy to receive any suggestions or solutions. PS.The van itself has travelled over 712,000 kms.The engine has done about 220,000kms.

I have a toyota hiace super custom limited 1996 model that I drove home during rainy day and suddenly the engine got cut out. I thought fuel was the problem and refueled but couldnt start again, it only cranks with no fuel going through injectors. I replaced the fuel pump relay, replaced the low pressure fuel pump from the tank and replaced the fuel filter but still no fuel going through the injectors. Thanks

Answers

Try change the solenoid on the fuel pump.----This solenoid shut off the fuel entering the high pressure side of the pump when the ignition is off therefore if the solenoid gone bad no fuel will get to the injectors. Theron Smith from Jamaica
