Question about 1985 Toyota Pickup
The squealing noise is likely a loose or worn belt as a slipping clutch makes very little noise. To check your clutch for slipping, watch your tachometer during accelleration. If the tach goes up in inordinate amount then suddenly comes back to where it should be, (when it catches), you have clutch slippage. It sounds like you are going "flat" at low rpms, thus the power loss when you change gears and the engine slows, as you pick up speed in the gear the engine gains torque and seems to be ok. It sounds as if your problem is fuel/mix or delivery...probably delivery related at lower rpms. I believe the '85 is throttle body injected so there are a series of sensors that help determine the correct pressure and mix for the injection. You can have these checked..probably for free at Advance or Auto Zone. Also, the throttle body will have only 1 or 2 injectors that are probably over due for cleaning. An injector cleaning fuel additive will probably not do the trick. The Toyota dealership, and other "Better" repair facilities have equiptment to properly blast and clean these injectors. Check your fuel filter as well. Good Luck. I hope you find this very helpful!
