Question about 2001 Toyota Tundra

2001 v8 2wd tundra engine dies when shift into drive

Engine starts with no problems at the first turn of the key. But when I quickly shift into drive it starts to stutter really bad and/or just completely dies. What I have learned to do is turn the engine on then wait about 2 or 3 minutes and then shift into drive. Usually is it fine or it stutters slightly. Once the engine is running there seems to be no problem. Has anyone experienced this before? I would like to fix this problem before it really becomes more of a major issue.
Thanks,
Oscar

SOURCE: limp home mode light will come on and stuttering

Check the actual ohm readings for tps sensor to manufacturer specs. Sounds like the tps sensor is out of range. Sometimes the o2 sensor gives a false reading to the ecm which causes the tps malfunction. Doubt seriously if it electrical short. Bad ground maybe.

SOURCE: caprice stutters at certain speeds and slightly

You may have an intermittent slow response on the rear O2 sensor, I'm not sure if you have a pre and post O2 sensor, off the top of my head, but I would get the system hooked up to a monitor to see if there is any pending codes (big change over from 1994 to 1995). Is it an OBDII system? As far as the stumbling, I have a 91 silverado with a 5.7L engine and it's had a very light stumble at idle since new, day one, and every sensor is on target, idle, 1000 rpm, 2000 rpms, 3000 rpms, and still has a slight stumble with all sensors within range. To this day it still has a slight stumble but it still runs great, Good luck, Gary

Whats a p0700.....


P0700 Fault Code Definition
  • Transmission Control System Malfunction
What does this mean?
The purpose of the automatic transmission is to match the engine's optimum power and torque characteristics to the driver's desired rate of acceleration and speed by auto-selecting different gear ratios or 'speeds' to power the wheels.
When the code P0700 is set in the Powertrain Computer, it means that the Powertrain Computer or PCM is seeing greater than a specified RPM difference between the rotational speed of the Input RPM Sensor and the Transmission Output RPM Sensor. This can occur during shifting or when driving at steady speeds in the same gear. It often implies that the transmission is slipping.
Symptoms
  • Check Engine Light will illuminate
  • Vehicle will not shift properly
  • Decrease in fuel economy
  • In unusual cases, there are no adverse conditions noticed by the driver
  • In some cases, there may be performance problems, such as dying when coming to a stop after driving on the freeway and/or misfire-like symptoms
Common Problems That Trigger the P0700 Code
  • Defective Shift Solenoids
  • Defective Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor
  • Defective Valve Body
  • Dirty transmission fluid that restricts the hydraulic passages
Common Misdiagnoses
  • Engine Misfire problem
  • Internal Transmission problem
  • Driveline problem

My 2001 tundra turns over and everything works but wont start has half tank gas


If it has known good spark and fuel pressure try spraying carb cleaner in the throttle body while cranking engine to see if it will crank.

2001 toyota tundra missing at idle and when driving


It will be spark plug or coil pack(spark leads) breaking down.
Pull 1 lead off at a time, start engine, listen to the sound of engine, if 1 of them makes no difference in the running, then it will be that 1 that is at fault, either plug or lead.

My 2005 Silverado won't start. When key is turned, it sounds like it's starving for fuel, yet there is gas in the line on top by intake. My pickup is an '05, 4.7 V8,2WD, was doing fine, but within the last...


Fuel pump may be working but not providing enough fuel pressure to operate the vehicle.Try to see if it will start with alternative fuel such as a sensor safe induction cleaner.If it starts then dies after it burns the cleaner then more then likely the fuel pump is bad.

My 2001 Tundra sometimes stalls at stopping. I can watch the needle for the battery charge go down when the brake is applied and lights dim at the same time. It may or may not die. Seems to happen...


did you ever have to jump the battery in order to start it?
maybe your alternator is going bad, but first check all your battery cables to see if they are tight and free of corrosion.
you can take your car to the local parts store and they can put it on a load test to see if your alternator will pass.

2001 Jetta won't shift into high gear/


In 2001 the "Check Engine" light might give information about what's going on with the transmission. You may want to have it checked by a shop before the transmission decides to die. It might be a simple fix.

2001 cavalier died while driving, now it wont start


Could be failed fuel pump. Disconnect fuel line at engine and turn over a couple times having something to catch gas in. If electric pump don't turn over engine, just turn key to run position for a few seconds. Maybe clogged fuel filter or faulty pump if no gas shows. Change fuel filter and try again. If none, change pump.

TURN THE KEY TO THE ON POSITION WITHOUT STARTING THE ENGINE AND IMMEDIATELY PRESS THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL THREE TIMES WITHIN FIVE SECONDS.

Get those new codes, sure sounds like a MAF issue, also I have run across engine movement stalls, they turned out to be a break indside the engine harness, when the engine moved it would break the connection and stall or run really bad, I found these kinds of problems by pulling and twisting the harness to the engine, then I would cut it open and do the same thing wire by wire.
