Question about 1999 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner

1 Answer

Total loss of power

My '99 Toyota Tacoma 3.4L V6 4x4 had its check engine light come on about a month and a half ago, but still ran normal. Then just the other day when i was heading to work I could get no power out of it. If I hit the gas the engine just boggs down and stays at around 1500-1750rpm until i let it off then it comes up a bit then back down to idle, i can still drive it but only if i baby it at a low rpm. Please help!!!! Nancy

Need the code number that was set on your computer when the check engine light came on. Autozone'll tell you the number. Often the code is self explanatory.

My 1999 toyota tacoma prerunner ran fin oil light came on aqnd it just shut off


Maybe you are low on oil and some cars are made like that to shut off when they run out of oil. So check the oil level and add as needed. if there is oil then maybe the oil pressure is low

No power,


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!

Still need the codes.
Injectors can go "bad" in a couple of different ways; all they are is an electromagneticaly controlled nozzle. When the ECU "fires" the injector, it pulses a ground circuit for 4-8 milliseconds, the electromagnet powers up, the valve at the bottom of the injector opens, and the fuel shoots out, under pressure. The wire can be bad/chafed/corodded/ The electromagnet may be weak. The nozzle may be stuck. Lots of things. But, to put in an injector for a number 4 cylinder misfire (p-0304 code) would be one of the last things that I would do.
