Question about 1986 Toyota 4Runner

2 Answers

86 4runner not getting fuel?

My truck has a rough idle and when i accelerate it hestitates and stays at the same rpm until i slam on the gas then the rpms jump up to about 3 grand. It feels like its just not getting enough gas when the pedal is pressed a little or even half way, then when the pedal is all the way down it gets too much all at once.

    This vehicle has a 22REC, non-turbo, it's an SR5 model, 4X4.

    Well, it took it to auto zone to have them plug in their computer but they didn't have the plug for my truck. However, my check engine light isn't on. Also i ran some gas in my truck that came from the junk yard that I work at, but once they drained it out of the old cars they put it through 6 filters. After that, it lost power, so I changed the fuel filter and ran numerous injector cleaners through it, and that didn't seem to do anything.

    Have you run a test to see if any trouble codes are stored?

I have a 1987 ford F150 302 FI it has a hestitation when I first press the gas then it goes. It has a rough idle until you drive it awhile, but the truck starts right up. The truck set for a little longer...


Sounds like it could be a fuel delivery problem.Check the fuel pressure it should be 35-45 psi with engine running.If its not within these specs then replace pump and filter.

Check your fuel vapor recovery system, your van has unusual set up, and the effect is RAW fuel gets purged, rather than vapor.
The dead giveaway test is does the issue happen on light acceleration? Does it stop if you let off the throttle? Can you accelerate harder and "get past" the issue?

My 1996 dodge stratus idles rough, shaking the steering wheel. Also just recently driving my normal comute to college and back which is 40 miles round trip, in turn is now consuming 4 gallons of gasoline....


Seems like we need a tune up . Change the plugs wires, air filter fuel filter. Is the check engine light on. If so have the codes pulled on the car.
