Cutting out/slows down as accelerating

Hi I have a friend with a Toyota Lucida. They are having problems with it cutting out/slowing down as they accelerate. Could it be a problem with the air flow sensor?

Try changing the fuel filter, and adding a can of SEAFOAM to the tank. EGS(ethanol gas syndrome) is the biggest problem for this. the injectors fuel filters fuel lines, and emissions are full of goop and water. This happens because of the corn in the gas. Try that first. Make sure you add some Premium gas to the tank at the start. after this, add SF every 3-5000 miles to keep this from happemning again. SEAFOAM is at any parts store.

Motor hesitates & bucks after slowing down & then re-accelerating

HMM, it has been awhile since ive worked on that toyota motor. Check for vacuum leaks on hoses and the intake manifold. Check egr system for a dirty pintle leaving the egr stuck open. It will cause bad acceleration and idle quality. A properly closed egr cannot be blown through to the opposite port. Check for a clean throttle plate, if it is not, clean it. If it is a fuel injected engine check for bad fuel injector o rings for wear, if they leak they cause fuel burning and idle problems.

After braking or slowing down acceleration stall

Check fuel pressure. Parts stores rent a fuel pressure gauge. If fuel pressure is low, check fuel pump and filter.

Your diesel fuel strainer or filter may be blocked. similar thing happened with a friend's Prado recently. Have the strainer cleaned and replace your fuel filter. Hope this helps.

Toyota lucida under normal breaking the breakes seem ok, if i pump the breaks while slowing down they stop working any ideas

Firstly, why are you pumping the brakes to slow down. If its because the brakes are not efficient, then they need to be checked and repaired. Secondly, it will reduce the braking efficiency to near enough nil, if you are pumping the brakes, doing that, exhausts the vacuum pressure that gives the brakes assistance.
