The problem may be the gas that sat in the carburator. Gas goes bad faster in smaller quantities. Have a look inside to see if you have "gummed" up passages, or jets. Don't forget to change the fuel filter.
Good luck. (I have an 89, and it's a great truck, 300k miles on it.)

I have two toyota pickup truck 89 and 94 with 22re engine, I swap the engine the 94 manual transmission is ok but the 89 automatic transmission is not shifting into 3rd gear and the check engine comes


welcome to modern cars, the newer cars have a TCM.
you can just swap a mech, trans for a electronically swifted trans.
I swapped, you meant.
its not clear what you are doing here,.
why are you swapping engines
and are you expecting both cars to run? which makes above line odd.
no?

1985 toyota motor home. 4 cyl. 22re engine. goes slowly into reverse when transmission is cold, but when it warms up, it wont go into reverse. If I give it more gas, it will sometimes catch briefly, but...


Change the fluid and filter. If i remember correctly reverse and third gear share the same band and clutch pack. Some transmissions you could tighten the band on it.

I have a 1987 toyota pickup that cuts out or bogs down when accelerating


I would check with your emission control or your exhaust because if your truck has a catalyic converter it might be clogged. Hope this helps?!

I had this problem once. My engine turned over but i had no spark.
Every thing electrical was fine.
Make sure your distributor turns when you are cranking the engine over.
Check your pickup sensor in your distrubutor with an ohm meter.
the resistance is 180-240 ohms.

1993 TOYOTA PICKUP (V6) TEMPERATURE PROBLEM


the trans will not allow overdrive until coolant reaches roughly 180 degrees, if the guage shows cool and the trans is not upshifting, or downshifts to third while driving. the problem is either a sticking (or missing) thermostat. follow the lower radiator hose to the engine and find the three 12mm nuts, remove these to get to it. a new toyota t-stat will have a little bleed valve on its face. position it upwards when installing. hope this is helpful.
P.S. Happy New Year
