Hesitation with my 4cyl 1992 4Runner 22RE

I have a 92 4Runner 4cyl with 320,000 km on it! I have put approx $5000 into it now so can relate to many problems. But this latest has everyone baffled. I have been to 3mechanics and now am resorting to this forum before I take it to the dealership! $$$$$ It is hesitating and losing power up slight hills sometimes and sometimes also slightly Also it kind of freezes in 2nd gear at 43 k then rpm go to 3000, but speed doesn't pick up? .It is not a hole in the intake hose, nor pick up, regulater hose, vacuum hose,igniter, injectors, fuel pump, filter, wires, has been diagnosed for torque sensor, etc. Noone has been able to fix nor figure problem out? Any ideas that I haven't heard of would be appreciated or It'll be up for sale

    Funny Toyota Ed the Engine Light used to come on when this missing first started happening, but when I read to spray WD 40 in spark plugs and on carb or dist after I did this, it flashed a few more times then never came on again?

How much oil should normally be burnt on a Peugeot 207. 2007. 1.6 L auto. 5 door hatch if motor is in very good cond between oil changes (have done approx. 5000kms)

Anon, You really should look in your manual or contact manufacturer to find what is considered normal oil consumption. I have never owned a Peugeot, but have had numerous other makes, mostly domestics to USA and Canada and never had to add oil between changes at approx. 5000 Km.s before oil changes.

IS your 4runner a 22re engine or the se v6? also, have you checked your clutch and spark plugs/ignition system, because it's possible you have a misfiring piston... oh, and if it's an auto tranny, you might need to replace the auto clutch, because it may be slipping, which would also cause hesitation

Changing engine oil every 5000 KM or every 2500?

The service duration is affected by many things.. If you are driving in a dusty atmosphere or doing a lot of high RPM but low gear driving, change the oil every 2500kms. if you do mainly highway driving with low rpm but top gear, change the oil every 5000 kms. As a rule, I always replace the oil filter at every oil change even though toyota says you dont have to.

I have a 1994 toyota truck with a 22re engine, and the problem is a fluctuating idle with the a/c on or off.

I would suggest idling your high idle speed up a quarter turn while air conditioner is on full .

I have a 94 toyota 4runner that needs an engine. theres someone selling a 98 4runner engine, will it fit in my 94 toyota 4runner?

it depends, is it a 4cyl or 6cyl truck? If its a 4cyl, its a 22RE engine, any engine from 84 till I think 99 or 2000 will fit, the big thing is the wiring, if you just need the block and head, it should work. bolt everything else up and slap it in. should take about 4 or 5 hours depending on how much you know about engines. If its a 6cyl...your on your own.
