The fuel pump for your truck is in the gas tank. They cost about $142 at Autozone. It's not that hard if you have a basic ability with tools and a little help to raise and lower the tank. Of course you'll need to drain the tank before you start.

The Idle Air Control Valve (IACV) may need cleaning or replacement.

This valve lets air bypass the throttle plate so that the engine can idle. The more air, the faster the idle. If this valve is sticky, the computer may have a hard time regulating the idle properly and may surge.

1989 toyota corolla quits when going down road but still turns over

As with any no start issue, you will need to find out if you are dealing with a no spark or no fuel problem to proceed.
Once you find that out you can either let us know or research it online.

My 1990 3.0 Toyota 4 runner won't start in the cold

If you have spark and fuel, the next stop would be either the crank position or camshaft position sensors.Either one of those can stop the engine from firing.

My 97 4Runner sat for 3yrs put gas in it New battery Fuel filter and wont start. I put starter fluid in it and it runs and cuts off. Fuses panel inside and under the hood doesnt indicate fuel pump, So i...

It sounds like no fuel is getting to your engine. Blown, open or missing fuses are an easy fix and is a good place to start. Since the engine runs with starting fluid, the spark is good. More than likely it is a low or no fuel pressure issue. There may be due to a clogged fuel filter or worse, a defective fuel pump. Electronically Fuel Injected (EFI) engines have the pump located in the fuel tank. The fuel tank will need to be removed to access the pump.

You can listen for the pump running if you insert the key into the ignition and turn it to the run position - not all the way to start. When in this position, the pump is energized to pressurize the fuel lines to the fuel injectors so that fuel is available to them when cranking the engine over to start. You should be able to hear the pump running for several seconds at that time. If you can't, have someone else turn the key while you get you ear close to the tank.

Unstabilized gasoline left in a tank for a long period of time can break down and coat everything in varnish - which is probably what has happened to your pump. Sometimes, you may be able to sharply rap the tank while the engine is being cranked to "coax" the pump to operate.

Those are a couple of things to check before having it towed to your garage. Good luck!

I have trouble starting my car after it has sat out for a long time

Not uncommon for fuel injected cars to start hard after prolonged storage. I have a 2001 truck for sale and today when I tried to start it - it started really hard, cranked on it for 20 seconds or so then let it rest and cranked again for 15 seconds before it fired
The cause is injected motor have a return line to the gas tank and over time the fuel pressure bleeds off - as long as it starts good 20 minutes after a hard start it is pretty normal

My 1989 toyota Pickup feels like it stutters from speeds 45-65 randomly... Check engine light pops on for a second then turns off. It has a 22RE engine in it and is fuel injected.

If I were you, I would rather go in for a diagnosis (scan) if my car is OBD I compliant.

But you could take a look at the fuel pump or see that the fuel system generally is okay.

Good luck.

1988 toyota 22re truck will crank and run perfect until you turn the engine off then it takes about a hour before it starts again engine just turns over.

First step, see what is missing when it wont start, fuel, or spark. Is it carburated? or fuel injected. (22re should be injected.)
