Question about 1994 Toyota Pickup
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
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.

I had a similar problem, do a compression check you may have a valve problem.
