Question about 1994 Toyota Pickup

Check Eng light Intermitent 1989 Toy. 4 x4 Std Pickup 22re EFI

This 22re motor was a complete rebuilt swapped out 15,000 miles ago.

1st: Last Spring 08 the 22 re engine would not idle unless you kept your foot on the accelerator, Adjusted idle and did not fix. Right before it stalls out there is a clicking sound in the ECM below the passenger side glove box right kick panel, before it finally dies unless you give it the gas and it then goes away and sounds fine again.

2: Over the summer after several months of failed troubleshooting every possible fix for this idle stalling out problem, it self-corrected itself for no apparent reason, other than the outside air temp was much higher during operating conditions now that it was summer. The motor runs fine now at idle and the initial problem has vanished, only to have a different one now some months later pop up..

3. A couple of weeks ago while driving home some 200 miles out the check engine light came on. It stayed on, even though the engine performance seemed just fine, except it did seem to be eating more fuel than usual.

4. Then the light went off.

5. The next day while driving down the road it came back on again, and stayed on for 200 miles. I parked
my truck.

6.. The very next morning without doing anything I started the motor back up and the light did not come

7.. How could just turning the motor off and then on again fix the problem?

8.. After returning from the 200 mile trip only 5 miles out from home the check engine light came on again
and has stayed on for the last several days.

There are no discernable performance issues I can obviously detect, other than it seems to get less fuel efficiency.

1989 Toyota 22re fails California Emissions Test. Rebuilt the engine 20K or so miles ago. Has passed most tests with just a little bit of timing adjustments. At 15 MPH, (1670 RPM) HC measures 153...

HC is hydrocarbons or unburnt fuel.(raw fuel ).NO no such gas measurement.did you mean CO this is carbon monoxide or incomplete combustion.(all the fuel is not being burnt).if you mean NOX this is nitrates of oxide and is related to a heat problem.(motor running hot,bad catalytic converter).its probably getting too much fuel and not burning it all,possibly tune-up problem,carburetor(if it has one),bad fuel injection system(dirty injectors),computer(if it has one)may be getting a wrong signal.these are in reference of high HC and CO.for high NOX cooling system not keeping motor cool enough,cooling fan problem(weather clutch fan or electrically controlled cooling fan),poor cooling system circulation,bad catalytic converter.not a running lean problem as the other gases indicate rich problem.the converter may not be able to convert the emission gases to H2O and CO2 out the tailpipe.

How do i tell if my 1989 toyota sr5 4x4 4 cylinder is a 22r or a 22re, and what is the difference please.

If it has a carb it's a 22r, if it has a throttle body (fuel infection) it is a 22re.

1993 Suburban 4 speed automatic transmission shifts hard front 1st to second. Transmission is 3 years old, 15,000 miles. It is a factory rebuilt.

That should be the L60-4 truck version
Have the sedan version, 93 Caprice.
That was the first year of the new electronic shifting transmission.
Especialy when cold she will shift hard, but it's normal.
But that depends on what you call normal.
I have gotten used to it over the last 17 years.

Fuel pump is a possible cause but I would check the ignition timing first.

91 Toyota 22re sputters around 2500rpms

your throttle position sensor might me bad or out of adjustment. if it is out of adjustment then it can misfire all the way up to 3500 rpm.
i had a friend that had a miss fire at 2500 rpm. i adjusted the tpss right and the misfire went away. Check for engine codes by jumping TE1 and E1.
Your fuel filter may be dirty and restricting fuel to your injectors.
have your fuel pressure checked.

Blowing efi fuse

carman963, OK, It sounds like you have a lead wire that is getting grounded out only under acceleration, check all of the wiring running to the engine from the master relay panel and examine any wire or connector that passes within 1 inch of any metal, look for signs of any arcing. Try this first and then get back with me with the results. Good Luck, quicbric
