Question about 1988 Toyota SR5 Xtracab
I have looked over the vacuum lines for leaks, changed all the plugs and wires to brand new Bosch, as well as renewed the ignition coil. The air filter was very dirty so I replaced it with a new filter. The engine will start but stops immediately. I plan to replace the fuel filter next, but that is not listed as a possible remedy in the Haynes manual.
Get somebody to crank the engine while you are under the vehicle with a rubber mallet. Hit the bottom of the tank while it is cranking. You have a may have a seized fuel pump...If that does you no good, look on top of the tank, and look for a broken/rusted wire at the top of the tank, where the fuel lines come out. It is VERY common to see this wire rust off.

I have not fixed the problem yet but I did install a new fuel filter and also ran the engine on starting fluid while another person turned the ignition key for me. Now I am pretty sure I have a fuel delivery problem. I will disconnect the line from the fuel tank and see if fuel comes out when I turn the key on.
