what causes BAD gas mileage

take out the spark plugs and check them also check the pistons for carbon build up, check the vacuum lines for leaks and being clog or choked espaly the top pipes as they can get clogged up on the breather line. also check the sump breather pipe as this can clog up over time. remove the belt auxury and test the movement on the power steering (if fitted) should move easy and do the same with anything else on there like alternator etc. anything that is stiff to move this can add more fuel use. even an oil change can help with mpg.

the valve thats on tha bar right infront of header has real short valve like on i bikes inner tube when i push in pin its dry no pressure? spray stater fluid air intake starts an cuts of shortly after>then when it does start I can rev it up an while im still pressin gas cars shut off slowy ??? is this a fuel problem

possibly fuel starvation from either weak or bad fuel pump,clogged up fuel filter (in-line or the one with the fuel pump?).What happens if you keep spraying into the breather,does it keep running but cuts off when you stop spraying??(careful for back-fire and catch yourself on fire),then this would let you know it's in the fuel feed portion of the car. Check for trouble codes to let you know what part of the engine to look into,before you damage instead of fix it. Try process of elimination. I believe the valve,schrader valve, you're talking about is for the fuel pressure;don't touch something you're not familiar with its purpose. Hope this helps,some.

Check for oil in the coolent and coolent in the oil, both of these are usually caused by head gasket failare but not always. If these seem ok change the fuel filters, remember there are 3 on these trucks, check the air filter isnt blocked if your not sure leave it out as there expensive and you dont want to throw money away if its not needed yet. Once your sure you have fixed the truck re-fit or replace the air filter. Check the fuel tank for contaminated fuel and if possable check fuel pick up in tank isnt blocked, also try with fuel tank cap removed as the breather may be blocked.

my 1991 toyota pick ,will start but shut off ,

I would check out the Mass Air Flow Sensor. Located on top of the air filter box. If the sensor is bad and computer doesn't see air going into the engine, it will automatically keep the engine from running. Try pulling the engine trouble code to confirm is problem.
