What make and model of vehicle ?How many miles on it ? When does it lack power, all driving conditions or just under a load, such as going up a hill under heavy throttle ? A couple of thing's right off that it could be is a plugged catalytic converter , plugged fuel filter or a weak fuel pump. Are there any lights lite on the dash , check engine light etc.. Have you experienced any strange noises or happenings ,like engine back firing. How does the engine run ,smooth ,ruff ? Have you had spark plugs changed and wires if it has them ?
Another cause of power loss in diesel engines is clogged fuel filter. Some vehicles have additional fuel filter INSIDE the fuel tank. I had my tank taken down and the inside filter cleaned and it fixed the problem. Some petrol stations and repair shops provide this service. If replacing the fuel filter in the engine compartment doesn't fix the problem, try this one. See FB "Toyota Innova Owners Phils" for more pictures.
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.
try cleaning out the carb, replacing fluids, and then put a fuel filter on it, because all the 1980-1988 toyotas didnt have fuel filters on them. Just go buy one cheap from your local hardware store, and install it on your fuel line.
This same thing happened to my 1987 toyota 22r pickup truck.
