Question about 1988 Toyota Pickup

Your engine seems to be running rich. that may be do to a bad spark plug, spark plug wire, bad distributor cap. If you have a 22re you should check for trouble codes by jumping TE1 and E1.
You should also check your engine timing. With a timing light. The timing marks are located on or above the oil pump. keep in mind in order to get timing right you must have TE1 and E1 jumped. Set to 5 degrees advanced. If your engine is improperly timed it will accelerate slowly, and get worse mileage.
Also adjust/Check engine valves appropriately. they will cause low power.
Also does it misfire at idle?

Sounds like you developed a cylinder misfire and managed to get a sizable amount of unburned fuel into your hot catalytic converter! Was the engine loping or running rough while trying to get up to speed?
