Take your starter off and have it checked out. Sounds like it's taking too much power, and possibly killing your battery. A bad starter will drain your battery when the vehicle isn't running.

I have a 91 4 runner manual sr5 3ltr. it has a hesitation, lacking power, late valve timing and lean mixture what is the problem. changed plugs, leads full service and tune new disy, new fuel pump and...

late valve timing ( how did you find this out)is from a faulty timing adjuster on the front of the cam shaft and is hydraulically operated by a solenoid controlled by the ECM. They are prone to failure and regularly require replacement. have the fault codes read for better assessment of faults before you waste any more money.

This is a starter solenoid issue. The best way to fix it is to change the entire starter, but there are solenoid repair kits available to fix just the solenoid. The rest of the starter is old, so it won't belong before it will have to be replaced anyway. I just do it all at once and be done with it.

Could be a number of issues. Have you changed the gas filter lately? The ignition wires lately? or the spark plugs? Start with the gas filter.
