  1. Sticky: Re: The WHAT-IS-THIS-PART and WHAT'S-THE-PART-NUMBER Thread for US Toyota Vans 1984-1

    I don't think Rock Auto has these (at least not one made to fit the van). They used to, but now under that title they only show Idle-up Diaphragms. If anybody finds one that is compatible and will...
  2. Re: What does a particular VSV do? See excellent attached diagram.

    I seriously doubt it's low voltage causing it to die........that takes place somewhere around 10 volts. If your battery is strong enough to restart after it dies then you can rule out the charging...

    stolz, I don't think that has anything to do with the alternator (your voltages seem fine). Running rough could be lots of things, but if it stalls when running the AC I'd adjust your Idle-Up...

    Re: Alternator woes

    Leave the 15A fuse in there (in case of a short, the wire in the sense circuit can't hold 30A). Since this is a sense circuit, there is no current draw, but you want the fuse to blow if that wire...

    Re: Alternator woes

    Although still below 15V, this is unusually high. I suspect an open in the battery sense circuit (would cause your alternator's internal regulator to go to max output). Staying below 15V could be due...

    Re: Alternator woes

    I agree. If high (above 15 VDC) it would indicate an open in the battery sense circuit. If low (below 13 VDC) it would indicate an open diode inside the alternator.
