SOURCE: When Brake is applied the Idle tends to drop on my

this is absolutely normal with a well maintained broken in engine. the engine is at rest when stopped,so the ecm lowers idle till you drive,which puts the engine under load.if it causes the engine to stumble or die,then replace air filter and set up the idle.

check the water level in the radiator (not the reservoir) Check the temp sender unit is working by temporarily touching the wire to the engine and seeing if the gauge goes immediately to hot.. If so replace the sender unit.

What does temp switch 2 do on 1988 22r

EFI temp switches, are covered in the FSM
but they do the same on all cars
it lets the ECU know of the coolant reaches full temp or partial
and all ECU use that to set fuel mix to perfect as engine warms.
on new cars we use only a single thermistor sensors called ECT (old WTC) to do all that.
this old system is very barbaric, in todays terms

ok did you try

The 2-valve SOHC 2.4 L (2,366 cc) 22R was produced from 1981 through 1997.
non turbo ,right?
there are up to 4 temp senders.
gauge sender, 1pin
ECT , 2 pin
and 2 temp switchs.
and A/C cut for overheat.
and others.
and if California car 2 or 3 more. see FSM for that. complex.

getting the correct one takes great skill.
id use SMP catalogs to match it.
smp makes many

TS73 is gage
TX18 is ECt
ETS3 is the calif deal.

Will crank if pushed off, but not with switch on a 1988 toyota pickup, with 22r carb.

Sounds like a bad starter motor or a faulty / intermittent Earth connection.

First check all the battery power and earth leads where they connect to the Battery Terminals, Engine, Starter Motor and Body. If possible disconnect, clean thoroughly by removing any corrosion or paint, with a wire brush or coarse sond paper, that could cause a poor connection, and reconnect making sure all are tight.
Try tapping the starter with a hammer or tyre lever while the starter is operated. If it works then it means that the brushes in the starter are worn out or the solenoid is not making proper contact to switch the high current required. Auto electricians will usually have exchange units available for replacement.

You might check the PCV valve and grommet,I'm assuming it's EFI,if the valve isn't sealed tight it will cause the motor die at lower RPM's
