Question about 1988 Toyota Pickup
OK here we go. I have a 1988 Toyota Pickup with a 22r motor from LC Engineering. I put the motor in about this time last year. It has ran great and there have been know issues with the truck. About 6 months agao I put in a new fuel tank and fuel pump with a new filter. The truck still ran great! The only reason I replaced all that was because I put a hole in the tank when I was out 4x4ing. And I only wanted to drop the tank once. But just last week I was driving the truck and it died on me. it chuged and just died. I have check the fule pump and fileter both are good. The spark is very good on it. Nice and blue all the way to the plugs. Timing has not jumped. Air filter is good. It tries to start but it just does not. I was thinking it might be the TP sensor or the mass air flow sensor. The only thing is I am not sure how to check them before I just buy a new one. Any and all help will be greatly taken. I love this truck and it has been a great truck for me from the time I got it back in 1990. Please help!!!!!!!! Thanks
If you have a tps and air flow meter you have a 22re fuel injection.
Check for codes by jumping TE1 and E1 or jumping diagnosis connector.
The 22re will run with out the tps(throttle position sensor) plugged in. But it will not run with the air flow meter unplugged. The air flow meter controls the fuel pumps voltage.

This page tell you how to test those sensors. Then we can go from there.
The fuel pressure regulator may be shot also, but we will see.
I hope this was helpful.

Sounds like a bad starter motor or a faulty / intermittent Earth connection.
First check all the battery power and earth leads where they connect to the Battery Terminals, Engine, Starter Motor and Body. If possible disconnect, clean thoroughly by removing any corrosion or paint, with a wire brush or coarse sond paper, that could cause a poor connection, and reconnect making sure all are tight.
Try tapping the starter with a hammer or tyre lever while the starter is operated. If it works then it means that the brushes in the starter are worn out or the solenoid is not making proper contact to switch the high current required. Auto electricians will usually have exchange units available for replacement.
