Re: Hilux Surf 3RZ-FE Engine

You need to take photos of the resistors if possible, the colour bands indicate the resistors' value. If the resistor overheats and discolours, these colours would be hard to identify. An orange band might become brown in such a case, resulting in an incorrect reading of value.
