Question about 1990 Toyota Pickup

1 Answer

Runs poorly while warming up

My truck has a 3.0 V6. It starts great. High idle comes up just like it's suppose to. The problem is the intermediate warm up. It runs great when it is completely warm. It starts good, I can drive it 3 or 4 blocks, then it stumbles and has poor acceleration. After a few miles, when it completely warms up, it runs great. It kind of runs like the choke came off too soon.(old car problems) I know this doesn't have a choke, but I'm not sure how the cold start system works on this vehicle.

    186K on the 3vze engine. It suddenly began running very rough in high idle. It smooths out after the idle goes down a notch. I have a problem with the radiator leaking, so maybe the hot water, Solution #1 has something to do with it.

Auto choke controled by the hot water system,sounds like someone has disconnected the pipes somewhere along the line as they were leaking,on or around the carb should be a round thing with two water pipes and inside is a bi-metal strip,which is most likely working but with no water through it or through the inlet manifold to preheat the petrol vapour hence your problem.soloution buy a small engined europen type vehiclelike a kangoo or berlingo and recycle the gas guzzler you have now.

1991 dodge colt won't idle when engine is cold.


probably oil, it may be too thick when it's cold but once it warms up it liquefies and your engine runs smoothly. you could try changing oil, I'm guessing if you have a high performance oil the chances this is the problem may be greater since high performance things are usually geared towards working well when everything is hot
