1986 Toyota 22re engine, pick up 4x4, wont stay running when warm

I have a 1986 Toyota 22re engine, pick up 4x4. When I start it up and let it run for about half an hour and shut it off and try to start it again it won't start. It seems like once it warms up it will bog down and won't stay running.

SOURCE: will not start when engine warm

Sounds more like your ignition module is getting hot and not working. I'd go there first before replacing the ECM. You can remove the ignition module and most NAPA stores have the ability to test them for you. Make sure they test it at least 5 times. This way it'll simulate starting and stopping.

SOURCE: I have 1994 Pontiac Grand AM 2.3. After the car

If it's an automatic transmission I'd suspect it may not be shifting out of overdrive and this is causing the shaking and stalling. There is a plug on the transmission that can be unplugged and vehicle can be driven without any damage. I've been told it's a common problem with these cars. Ask your local mechanic about it.

SOURCE: motor revs up & down, engine light on. Runs better when warmed up

That does not seem to be your problem.Its likly that your air flow meter has the fault.Change that before you do any thing else.

SOURCE: my car dies when it get warm?

Hey, Bro! Try checking for vacuum leaks. Have a friend whose 94 grand am 2.3 did the same thing. Engine would shake violently when stopping... So vacuum leaks are most likely the problem. The brakes don't work good when this happens because the brake booster operates on vacuum. in fact alot of stuff works on vacuum... on hers the PCV valve hose totally wasted along with a couple other leaks! If you can't get it fixed real soon you can get it to go after stopping by stepping on the brake, revving the engine a little before placing it in gear, then slowly let out on the brake. This keeps the RPM's high enough to keep the engine running... careful though... don't rev it too high.

1992 toyota 22re fluids out and puts out a lot of fume out the exhast

Floods out.Multiple causes.How does it run when warmed up?Still stink?
Check injectors: Run the engine up to 3,000 RPM and turn off the key,while flooring the gas pedal.If engine still runs,the injector(s) are stuck open.
Also check for a vacuum leak-that will cause the engine to run very rich.
Also may be an open circuit in the temp sensor(computer side).The engine may think it's very cold and richen up the mixture.

Check ur battery, check the engine radiator hose and the condition of radiator, and always check the water. if the problem is still there check the igniter plug if there's carbon presence around, if u found its burned, its better to change. do this troubleshooting first. it will do to trace the proble. k good am

1988 toyota 22re truck will crank and run perfect until you turn the engine off then it takes about a hour before it starts again engine just turns over.

First step, see what is missing when it wont start, fuel, or spark. Is it carburated? or fuel injected. (22re should be injected.)

Intermitant temperature

Check to make sure your thermostat works right by monitoring the warming up of your engine. With a completely cold engine, start and run the engine for a few minutes, then put your hand on the top radiator hose to monitor if and when it gets warm as the thermostat opens more and more and note the gauge reading( if it works) the top radiator hose should be unbearably hot within 5-8 minutes. If the therm. opens right it should close right aswell, staying open a little while eventhough the radiator may have cooled may be what you are experiencing causing the rapid cooling and is nothing to worry about. The Hose should not get warm very soon after starting the engine. Regarding you gauge, lets take one step at a time, verify proper op. or the therm.
