SOURCE: no power up hills

If you had a bad mass air sensor, it should register a fault code. Ditto for oxygen sensors. I'd change the fuel filter for sure, as well as spark plugs (make sure they're gapped correctly), and run a bottle of Seafoam through the gas tank. If that doesn't do it, change your cap, rotor, and spark wires (all told you're under $100 for everything).

SOURCE: engine jerking

Hi there, let me see if I can help.

There's not much info to go on here, but let me try.....

Ok, if it's "pulling or stopping" in a jerking motion. It sounds like it might be engine related, however, it can be transmission issues also. Lets talk about engine.

Are there any check engine lights? That may be a clue that it's engine related...such as an engine miss.
Try putting the car in park and rev the engine from idle. (note: don't go into the red zone on RPM.) Does if feel rough and jerky? this eliminates the transmission. If so look at cyl miss issues, timing belt "out of time," EGR stuck open....etc...


If the engine passess this test, test drive the vehicle for transmission problems. Find an open road that does not have much traffic. Test at 20, 30, 40, 50, and 60 mph. go to a cruise at speed indicated and then accelerate at light throttle and then heavy throttle then coast.

Do you feel it only when applying power? Nothing on deceleration?

if it does it on most of these speeds (particulary at higher speeds) look at inner C/V joint. You will need to take apart the joint and look at the race for ridges. The vibration can happen when the rollers fall into the worn spots and causes a "jerking" feeling when applying power. (look for leaking grease from inner joints. Damage usually happens when all the grease leaks out.

If it only happens at and around 40mph, it could be a torque converter clutch. Try a transmission flush.
(drain, refill, and run through all the gears P,R,N,D,2,1 BE CAREFUL HERE!!! Keep your foot on the brake. USE YOUR HEAD!!!!!!!!! Don't run vehicle on jack stands. Repeat 3 times. ONLY USE HONDA TRANS FLUID. Yes, it does make a difference! Will take about 12 qts to do a proper flush. See if the problem goes away.

It might need a transmission it it continues after the flush, or you have some other problem that isn't obvious to me with the given info. Hope this helps and happy hunting.

Prado jerking while going up hill or jerking when accelerating


Hi,
When was the last tune-up done? Should be done every 30-45KM, or depending on what your owner's manual maintenance book states.
1. Spark plugs
2. Spark plug wires
3. Fuel Filter
4. Air filter
5. Oxygen Sensor

If these have recently been replaced then do you have Check Engine Light (CEL)? If so, you'll need to get that checked by a mechanic.

1999 toyota tacoma has developed a nasty miss but only when excelerating


There are several problems regarding a misfiring engine. You can try checking all the spark plugs and seeing if they are good . Check the Spark Plug wires for any breaks or loose fit. If possible get a code at Autozone or other autoparts store. they do it for free. Because it could be a simple sensor problem Such as the Crankshaft position sensor, O2 sensor etc.
By eliminating the electrical ignition problems you can start to troubleshoot the fuel. Check all filters (ie: fuel filter, air filter, etc.)

I think my problem is the clutch whenever im on the throttle it sometimes jerks, or hesitates for a second.1997 toyota tacoma 4x4 3.4L


there is a couple of different ways a clutch can give trouble,one is clutch slip ,this noticable on hills or accelerating from a stop position,you would notice the revs going up and the speed going down rapidly, the other is clutch judder, this caused by a contaminated clutch disc usually from oil etc. from what u are saying it sounds like your car has a slight missfire ,due to a dodgy plug lead or plug , u should remove the plugs and check for track marks where the spark has been jumping to earth and replace that lead.
