    Do you have a 22re 2.4L or a 3.0L v6?

    I think it might be the pickup coil in the distributor, because both these engines will run cold with it disconnected but will die when engine warms up. I asked which engine so i could tell you how to test each pickup coil. Also you may have more than 1 problem. Thanks.

Something is riching or leaning this vehicle out at the wrong time. I'm gonna go with ERG valve being stuck in the open position. The only time this thing should work is at crusing speeds. Once the car has cooled down the fast idel cam takes over and prevent it from stalling. Once temp is within range idle cam stops and EGR is dumping into the mixture.
Use shop manual to do proper testing for the valve( probably a hand held vacuum pump is all you will need and gum out to free it up but you should properly replace it if it turns out to be the culprit.

1995 TOYOTA 4 RUNNER HAS A DELAYED HARD SHIFT BUT WHEN YOU DRIVE IT AND IT WARMS UP IT SHIFTS FINE WHAT IS WRONG


Service your transmission. Change the fluid and filter every 24,000 miles. The owners manual doesn't call for it, but they want to sell you another car at 100,000 miles. I have had to replace a few transmissions following the manufacturer's instructions before I decided to ignore that part.

Whining engine


It could be a pully bearing going bad, or your power stearing pump. next time you start it when it's cold try moving your steering wheel left to righ and see if there is any changes. The next time try removing your belt before you start it and see if the noise goes away. The belt could be warn out and hard itll it warms up and soften up. Start with a new belt. Good luck
