Question about 1985 Toyota Pickup

1 Answer

1985 Toyota pickup 22r non cali emissions ( Drives then dies no fuel in carb)

New fuel pump installed, New fuel filter. Went through all the hoses all clear checked electrical to carb good to go runs fine in driveway at idle. Drive for 10-20 min dies out won't start for 5-10 min drive for 3miles maybe dies again. Thought it may be pressure in tank tried with cap on and off no diff. What could possibly be the problem.

    Have you checked the fuel tank? There could be some debris in the tank that plugs the pick-up when driving and suction on pick up line pulls it in and chokes out the engine. When there is no more suction the debris falls out of pick up. You start the engine and the piece is sucked back in. Try draining the tank and see if you get any garbage out of it.

    If this works, thank TV. I think it was Monk that I saw it on ;)

I had a similar problem and it turned out to be the rubber fuel lines being old and cracked. The hoses would warm up and fuel would squirt out of the cracks. I had to replace three fuel line hoses and it has been running great ever since. Good luck.

I need a vacuum diagram for a 1980 22RE engine w/ 2 bbl carb


I don't think your engine is a 22R-E as the E denotes electronic fuel ejection. For 1980 it should be just a 22R. I would not suggest slapping on another carb without expecting more work than just hooking up the original vacuum lines. Some lines you could cap off but others would need the vacuum and rerouting. There is plenty of info in the following blog on removing smog devices and extra vacuum lines here:
http://www.yotatech.com/f114/de-smogging-early-22r-205845/
There are also plenty of pictures and diagrams for your engine. Making a trip to your local junkyard might find you a 22R with a carb still attached but it's slim these days. I know this question is from January but if it's too late to help you than maybe it can help some one else.

Check the catalytic convertor,they will plug up and decrease your power due to the fact that the exhaust can't get out as fast as you are trying to put it in.Let me know how you make out.

mcdevito75 here, I think you mean the acclerator pump in the carb, here"s how to check it, Operate the gas pedal linkage from the carb itself and at same time look into carb. see a straem of gas each timeyou operate the gas pedal linkage, if not check for fuel at the carb. You could also have a dirty gas filter or a problem with the ignition system, check for spark at plugs.

Toyota 22r starts hard and floods. Repalced


It sounds like the carb. float is set to high and /or the needle and seat has some dirt in it allowing to much fuel inside the carb.. This will allow to much fuel into the engine.It seems the carb could use a rebuild and dont forget to replace your fuel filter.I hope this helps.
