Yes, Colorado is much higher in altitude. Do to higher altitude the barometric pressure is less than sea level by a long shot. Lower barometric pressure mean that less air is entering your engine. Which in turns mean that your engine is now running richer than it was at a a lower altitude. So I recommend checking you engine timing, and adjusting your carbs air/fuel mixture. yes this means that you may need to rejet. but first there is a screw on your 22r's carb that you must adjust to lean the air mixture just right. I have had a stock 22r carbortor before and never had to rejet it. i probibly should have but it ran fine at sea level and all the way to about 10000 ft. after 10000 feet i had to lean the fuel mixture to even alow the engine to run. This screw that you must turn is hidden due to toyota not wanting you to tamper with it and burn your engine to the ground by running your engine to lean. it has a metal plug on the passenger side of the carb about the size of a pencil eraser. you must drill that out and then you can adjust the air fuel mixture. Clock wise is to lean the air fuel. and Counter clock wise is to richen the air fuel mixture.A good rule of thumb is to turn the air/fuel screw all the way clock wise and then back out about 2 and 1/2 turns. That is the factory adjustment. you may only need 2 turns out. Best of luck i hope you get it running perfect. Try this adjustment first then if it still runs rich then think about rejetting.

Here is a picture of what i am talking about.

#1 is the air/fuel mixture, #2 and #3 are cold and warm idle screws.
#4 is a A/c idle adjustment.

D,
You didn't say what part of CO you moved to and what that altitude may be, but if you are over 6500 feet, your carbed engine may need to be rejetted to make up for the thinner air. Not sure if you have the asian or weber carb either, but there is plenty of info on both out there. Before you mess with the carb though, check for vacuum leaks and make sure the choke is not sticking,

I need a vacuum diagram for a 1980 22RE engine w/ 2 bbl carb


I don't think your engine is a 22R-E as the E denotes electronic fuel ejection. For 1980 it should be just a 22R. I would not suggest slapping on another carb without expecting more work than just hooking up the original vacuum lines. Some lines you could cap off but others would need the vacuum and rerouting. There is plenty of info in the following blog on removing smog devices and extra vacuum lines here:
http://www.yotatech.com/f114/de-smogging-early-22r-205845/
There are also plenty of pictures and diagrams for your engine. Making a trip to your local junkyard might find you a 22R with a carb still attached but it's slim these days. I know this question is from January but if it's too late to help you than maybe it can help some one else.

No. Your troubles are carburator related. Since you have no way of knowing what "some guy" did inside your carb you will likely have to take it to a shop that specializes in that kind of work. They may be able to adjust it so it works properly but it will probably have to be rebuilt again. Carburators are like a high maintenance girlfriend, very unforgiving if not treated just right. Hope this helps.

How do i tell if my 1989 toyota sr5 4x4 4 cylinder is a 22r or a 22re, and what is the difference please.


If it has a carb it's a 22r, if it has a throttle body (fuel infection) it is a 22re.

mcdevito75 here, I think you mean the acclerator pump in the carb, here"s how to check it, Operate the gas pedal linkage from the carb itself and at same time look into carb. see a straem of gas each timeyou operate the gas pedal linkage, if not check for fuel at the carb. You could also have a dirty gas filter or a problem with the ignition system, check for spark at plugs.

Toyota 22r starts hard and floods. Repalced


It sounds like the carb. float is set to high and /or the needle and seat has some dirt in it allowing to much fuel inside the carb.. This will allow to much fuel into the engine.It seems the carb could use a rebuild and dont forget to replace your fuel filter.I hope this helps.

22r Carb. misses at ide


Dripping fuel could indicate a badly adjusted float,bad needle and seat,or possibly to much fuel pressure off the pump,if your using a mechanical fuel pump make sure the return line to the gas tank isn't plugged,if your usining an electric fuel pump make sure you have a working pressure regulator,my personal opinion on remanufactred stock carbs isn't very high,if you can return the carb I would highly reccomend replacing it with a Weber 38 DGES,you can get a Toyota conversion kit for around the same cost as a remaned stock carb.

Need to change engines


If you have a 22r carbed then all 22r carbed engines from 1981-1995 will interchange. You may need to use sensor out of your old engine however. The 20r,22r,22re,22ret all have the same mounts and tranny bolt patterns. how ever there are lot of differences. you can swap from a 22r to a 22re but you must also swap the entire vehical wiring harness to do it right. if you have a 3.0L i would keep the same engine. some people have swap to the tacoma 3.6L but that is a expensive swap not exsactly bolt on so to say. If you have a 22re then stay with the 1986-1987 22re because the newer 22re use different computers, electronics ,sensors and more.. Same story with the 22ret. I hoped this helped.
