86 toyota pickup shakes and shuts off when put in gear

My husband just relpaced the engine in a 86 toyta pick up. The engine runs fine when in park but as soon as he puts it into gear it shakes and stalls. If he disconnects 1 vacum line it runs ok. What can he do to trouble shoot and find the problem? He's spent several hours on it and the manual does not have clear details as to the timing schematics and vacum lines. any help would be appreciated. Thank you

2 things come to mind.
1. I don't know from your description which engine it has but it may be that the distributor or vacuum advance is malfunctioning or blocked.
2. Timing is a few degrees off.
Hope this helps

I changed the 02 Sensors on my 03 Mitsubishi Galant do I need to reset anything on my car? It turns on fine but idles low when put in gear and shuts off.


Its a hot start issue.

Can be related to low fuel pressure or problem with crank sensor.


Also it can be weak battery or starter.

If you're sure that the clutch hydraulics are working properly ... then you are going to need to pull the transmission to see why the release isn't working .... bad throw out bearing, problem with pressure plate or ??

My 1991 toyota pick ,will start but shut off ,


I would check out the Mass Air Flow Sensor. Located on top of the air filter box. If the sensor is bad and computer doesn't see air going into the engine, it will automatically keep the engine from running. Try pulling the engine trouble code to confirm is problem.

Going over bumps or bump roads, stearing shakes,pulls, at any speed fine after 15 min park


Please have a check at your steering rack and your shocks.

But I have a strong belief it could be your steering rack.

Sounds like maybe a blown headgasket between two cylinders. I've seen this plenty of times.

Pushed acceleration on freeway to 50-70 miles does not run smooth and shakes.


Could be any number of things, lets eliminate the transmission. Put the car in park and throttle the engine, is it snappy then? Or does it slowly rev up? If it still runs funny or isn't snappy, the tranny is not the problem. So it could be, weak fuel pump, fuel pressure regulator, or a ditributor problem. Could be a sensor to, but I've had 4 corollas and have never had a MAF sensor or others go out yet. I have had problems with the items I listed.
