Question about 1992 Toyota Pickup

1 Answer

Power lost I have a 92 Toyota pick up, while I was driving on it, it made a low dry explosion, and after that even when I pressed the gas peddle to the metal it did drive very slow, and on a small hill did not get over 5 ml/hr, I had notice that if I press the gas peddle just a little I could drive 25 ml/hr on a even street and also have more power on a hill, but 25 ml/hr was the limit. Now a week after if I press sligthly the peddle, it can get up to 35 ml/hr on a plane street. I checked the cables, replaced the spark ploggs and motor oil. Thanks for your time and patience. Att.

    You need to have a mechanic do a cylinder compression test. It is possible you have a leaking head gasket or a broken valve. The engine is straining against a cylinder that is not working--that is why the performance is so bad.

While in drive, the idle will bounce low and high, there is a stutter when you press on the gas peddle, has stalled while pressing/pumping gas pettle. have to hold gas peddle too keep from stalling when...

I have a 91 shadow and had a similar problem. Mine is fuel injected, and the quick fix was to just go buy some fuel injector cleaner, I reccomend STP, and throw that in the gas tank every fill up for about a month. Mine hasn't had the problem since.

I have a 1989 Toyota pick up 2wd that keeps blowing the 15A EFI fuse. I can crank it up and it will run iddle fine but once i put it in drive and press the gas peddle it blows the fuse. Any idea?

check the wires along you engine see if any have a bare spot or rubbing the throttle cable, sounds like you have a short also check to see if any wire along your fuel injection on the engine have a bare spot or shorted look closly and slowly for the rubber shielding to be chaffed or missing remember the wires once shorted could have turned black so dont just look for copper color inspect very closely with a flash light.
