Question about 2001 Toyota Sequoia

1 Answer

2001 toyota 4runner loss of power will not go faster than 40 mph.

I am having very severe acceleration and power problems with my 2001 4runner limited. It has been getting progressively worse over the past 3 weeks. My gas mileage is VERY poor. When starting from a stop, it hesitates and "revs" (kind of jerks). I have to release the gas peddle to get up to speed. When the problem first happened, after I got to the intended speed, it would drop back below 30 mph if I tried to go up an incline. At this point, I cannot even get it over 30 mph. Two mechanics are unable to find the problem. No codes are showing (no check engine light). They said it IS NOT the fuel filter or spark plugs. I had the catalytic convertor replaced two years ago. (It is not in 4 wheel drive) The MAF has been cleaned (twice).

When driving my 1997 Audi A 4 1.8t there is a loss of power around 3000 rpm, what could be causing the issue?

run the fault codes and look for a problem area in the vane actuator of the turbo
it could be a sensor problem or a MAP sensor problem
this is indicated by the pressures being generated or not generated by a turbo generating pressure from the throttle opening on acceleration or held at constant speed

Our 2001 toyota forerunner has a vibration on acceleration. It is a roaring noise at 50-60 mph. at 70 it seems to smooth out and not as bad. some vibration below 50 mph but not as bad as described above....

Hello, it's most likely a bad front wheel bearing or an out of balance driveshaft, worn u-joints, if the vibration shakes the whole truck have the driveshaft looked at for bad u-joints

throttle position sensor .. this lets the computer know just where your foot is on the gas .. It gets worn out in that position because that is where it is used the most. I would check it first then go from there... they are priced reasonable .. always start with the least expensive first then go from there. thanks Jerry holler if you need more

1996 4runner is missing when I accelerate and has some hesitation and loss of power.It has 144,000 miles and I changed the timing belt and water pump at 140,000. A mechanic is looking at it right now and...

Check the fuel pump and filter. This can cause a loss of power and hesitation. I doubt it is the spark plugs unless it started doing it right after you changed them.

1985 4Runner 22RE (injected / auto trans) has NO accelaration.

From minor problem to major problem. Try to replace your spark plug wires, rotor cap and the spark plugs, also it can be the injectors, plus if possible, try to replace the fuel filter which is located low under your EFI unit. If problem not solved, then it will probably be your A/T trans.
