Hi noobie here!! I have been told my 95 4runner has a "slam switch" or fuel stop/kill switch, My question is...if there is one where is it and can it be checked to find out if it is off or on? Thanks!

I have searched-don't even know exactly what its called. If I had found an answer I wouldn't be asking here. I am a female owner, not a mechanic and can not find anyone in my area to work on my truck so I am trying to figure this out on my own and I thought asking here may provide some help-obviously I was wrong.

I bought the truck with a blown head and had motor rebuilt-was running fine around town-drove it on a 2-3hr trip, approx. 20 miles from destinantion radiator blew (there was a couple patched places on it I wasn't aware of)-had radiator replaced, mechanic said truck cranks but is blowing white smoke that its prob. the head or head gasket-I tow truck home thinking the same person that worked on it last time could do it again, well he's been too busy to get to it yet. The plugs have been pulled & compression was 110-115 without dropping on all. Plugs were dry so I assume its not getting fuel-I was told to check the slam switch/fuel stop switch because when it was at the shop for the radiator it was hit by another vehicle coming off a wrecker-but have been unable to locate the switch/button. So that is where I am at now. Any help or suggestions??

OK, it helps to state what engine and transmission a vehicle has when posting.

In this case it though it dosen't, a 94 Toyota truck doesn't have that sort of circuit that requires resetting like some domestic vehicles do.

If you have a fuel delivery problem there are a lot of possibilities, and vehicle details would help here.

And white exhaust indicates burning coolant, which could be a blown HG or worse.

What vehicle details do you need? Any suggestions on where to start first on the fuel delivery? when the radiator blew, there was coolant everywhere, and chance it could have been from that? When I got it home I pulled the plugs out so that if there was any fluid in there it would dry.

In the front passenger side fender by the fuse box you have a diagnosis box, open the dust cover and look inside for the pin configuration. Take a paperclip and with ignition switch off jumper B+ and Fp terminals.

Open ignition and walk over back to the passenger side and see if you hear the fuel pressure regulator running if so fuel pump is getting power. You can also lift the back passenger seat and remove carpet and fuel pump bracket access cover to hear fuel pump or you can go underneath car next to gas tank and hear the pump.

You can also try starting the truck, if it starts or you hear any of the above noises then your problem lies with the kill switch found inside the air flow meter (above air filter) on the 4 cylinder engines (22R-E engine) is found behind driver's side headlight.

If so you need a new AFM they usually go by body style so 2nd generation 4-Runner (1990-95) and 5th generation Toyota pickups (1989-95). You can stick you hand above the air filter and move the kill switch to see if it's stuck from the accident. If so try starting vehicle before buying another one as they are hard to come by and in high demand.
