Question about 1995 Toyota 4Runner

1 Answer

1995 toyota 4 runner problem: is that when accelerating it acts like its starving for gas.Took it to shop and they said it was the fuel pump. I replaced the fuel pump,filter and it still has the same problem.It idles fine and takes off fine but when you accelerate it starts hesitating and sounds as if its backfiring at the engine.It has new plugs,wires,distributor cap and button.I've checked the continuity on the airflow meter and it reads 281 ohms so it is suppose to be ok also.If you can help please do so because I'm sick of waisting money. Thanks

You might have compression issues on a specific cylinder that only show up when you accelerate. Unless you can do it yourself, you'd have to take it in.

You can test the theory by getting one of those oil additives that supposedly seal compression leaks. If if solves the problem for a little while, you've got your answer.

I have a 95 toyota 4 runner sr5 v6. It is not getting good gas mileage. I have changed the air filter and the spark plugs and nothing has changed.


After a good tune-up may other factors affect your gas mileage, tire pressure, acceleration, traffic conditions, driving habits, etc. The only thing you can do is make sure its well tuned, has regular oil changes, clean filers and drive like a 90 year old lady! Outside of that, think about getting a newer more fuel efficient car.
