Change thermostat for a new one. Suspect blockage in cooling system or failing water pump if new thermostat doesn't cure the problem.

SOURCE: tow bar specs for 1988 hilux and 1983 toyota hilux, are they same

I'd check with manufacturer of tow bar to be sure it bolts on the same etc. I'm sure they would give you that info, and if nothing else, call a place that sells them and ask for kit number for both vehicles & if they are the same number, well, just need to check that they bolt on exactly the same, that's why I would contact manufacturer for copy of install instructions for the new install.

SOURCE: I have a 1986 toyota 4x4 pickup. It starts fine

Had the same problem on an 87 pickup not 4x4. Check the rubber fuel line from the tank to the engine, mine was so old that when the engine tried to **** a lot of gas the rubber line collapsed and restricted the amount of gas getting to the engine.

Well you got half the tune up done, So replace the fuel filter and air filter. Gets some brake cleaner and clean inside the throttle body. check all the vacuum lines and make sure they are not broke or leaking. Also check the catalitic converter/s, These start clogging and will excessive fuel consumption.

Sounds like you have a leaking head gasket maybe. Does the smoke have a sweet smell to it? If not it is oil or fuel.

Have a 1988 hilux. The fuel gauge shows the fuel level even when the ignition is off. Otherwise it seems to work fine.

Toyota fuel gauges from that time were actually meant to work like that! It's not drawing power from your battery with the ignition off, the needle just stays at the last reading.
