Sounds like a vacuum leak. A handheld propane torch is probably the easiest way to find it.(FLAME OFF)

99 4 runner v6 The engine pulsates at idle and during acceleration ,It goes up and down about 100 RPM and you can feel it under acceleration. what could be the cause?

If this a petrol engine, you have an air leak some where on the intake manifold. Test with soapy water and a paint brush whilst engine is running at idle. check all connections to the manifold and when soapy water gets sucked away, you have identified your leak. Start with the air cleaner and work along system back to the manifold.

Toy 4runner when you rev it up then let off the idle drops around 400 then takes almost a minute to return to normal any ideas?

the problem is with your fuel injection system .First have your ECU checked up by an authorized service personal. Have your carburetor cleaned up and check for complaints with the engines JET system . Retune your engine after cleaning and it will be alright for sure . The carburetor jet pin might have got faulty so expect a replacement for the carburetor or fuel injection system .
Thank you

99 4runner V6 timing belt replacement at HOW many miles? I bought a used vehicle with 137,000 miles and owner says he did not have the belt replaced. My mechanic says a good idea, but Toyota schedule does...

I have a 97 and also did not find a recommendation in the manual. I found through a Toyota machanic frien that it should be done at 100,000 miles and I did it. You don't want the belt to slip or break so do it now for peace of mind and to avoid a major engine repair bill. Hope this helps. You might want to do the water pump, tensioner and belt rollers at the same time.

Check the timing and compression of the engine. It sounds like you either have a blown head gasket or a the timing jumped.
