Question about 1999 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner

1 Answer

No power, 99 Tacoma Truck, 4X4, TRD, Extened cab, V6, automatic tran. No more get-up and go - Loss power: gutless truck. approximately 86,000 miles. It has been acting this way for quite some time now. I changed spark plugs several times, sprak plug wires, cleaned mass air flow sensor, new air filter several times. There is no check engine light on. Also, transmission takes long time before shifting into 3rd/drive when cold. Thank you,

My truck did the same thing. I changed the plugs with the ones the parts store recommended and it still acted gutless. Then I took it to the toyota dealership and they told me the plugs were not the right ones. So make sure you have the right plugs with a couple different parts store. i guess there sensitive and not just any plugs will work. Do it yourself though cause the dealership will rape you. Stevenson toyota in Golden colorado sucks!

I have a 2002 toyota tacoma 2wd with the TRD package and an automatic trans. about 2 weeks ago or so when putting my truck into reverse or drive it kinda bumps hard. and for a little bit it will shift hard...


Those metal flakes are normal wear and tear within the trans. You may try having it flushed (this may/may not work), The transmission may need a rebuild if you have serviced it already and is experiencing the same issues...hopefully this helps

How do I beaf up my suspension on a 05 Toyota Tacoma


I would suggest an aftermarket add on. There are helper/overload springs that you can install yourself. They are cambered leafs that fit over the axle with contact points on each end that won't touch the existing leaf springs until you are loaded, at that point the 2 contact points will touch the existing springs and assume some of the load. When this occurs, naturally it will affect the ride of the truck, but when you are not loaded, your ride will be unaltered.
