Question about 1996 Toyota T100

Open Question

I have the V6 T100 - runs rough when accelerating - seems to be missing. Runs much better when cold in the morning - gets much worse after driving on interstate for 30 minutes. Check engine light just came on today - have not checked code yet. Replaced plugs/wires two weeks ago which made minor improvement. 182,000 miles.

SOURCE: Check engine and VSC lights on

I talked to you on the live chat, and I think that you may have missed the end of my typing...

What I went on to say is that more often than not, on the 02 4Runners, the Check and VSC lights in tandem look mainly after the emission system, and, since you stated no issues during the road test, I would guess that it is a fuel issue (too full/loose gas cap). But, if you can get the vehicle scanned, I will be very glad to provide you with more and better info if you provide me with the DTC codes. That would require your guy or an autozone hookup to a scan tool. I hope my clarification helps; and the graciouness of a FIxYa rating for this question would be greatly appreciated

SOURCE: V6 engine idles rough after restarting, then smooths out

My first guess would be a dirty carb/fuel injector set. Run some fuel cleaner through the tank and see if it gets better. You might have to do it through a couple of tanksful. How long since you've had a tune-up? It might just be that time.

Sounds like the distributor advance is sticking for some reason. Is it mechanical?

SOURCE: 2000 Camry 4 cyl 2.2L.

sounds like you have a problem with the spark the coil may be on its way out or there may be oil in the spark plug holls shorting out the spark.
your best bet is to pull the leads out 1 at a time and and look down and check for oil if there is oil there get a new rocker cover gasket.
if no oil refit plug leads loosely and start the car remove one lead at a time slowly and look at the spark cumming out the end off the lead is it blue? if so it is ok if it is yellow and dull you have a coil problem. also check that the spark is only coming out the end of the lead as it may be coming out the side of the lead and shorting to earth,
you can do this by slowly moving the lead around the top of the spark plug holl and see were the spark is coming from

be carfull no to shock your self as it hearts like hell

good luck

Hi Brian,

The airflow sensor is working with temperature. If there is a problem the car will flud with fuel. I suggest that you change this senror.

Mitsubishi Triton V6 lacks power on acceleration


full power is only achieved when the engine is fully warm(operating temp).so if you accelerate more than, say, a third of the gas pedal,the car will feel sluggish.
this is more apparent when first starting the car in the morning in winter.almost like the car is going to stall.
most wear in the engine is leaving it to idle when cold you should always drive the car straight away from cold.then when hot turn on the a/c if required....

1997 T100 V6 has rough idle on initial start for about 5 seconds then runs fine.


You may have a head gasket issue or just need a tune up.. If you need a head gasket what is happening is just a litle coolant is leaking into the cylinder so on cold starts it causing a misfire. Get to properly diagnosed. You could be wearing out the cat.. if it keeps up then you will set a check engine light for a dead catalytic converter.

Misses, then runs decent. It seems to run worse in gear.


Wouldn't hurt to run some fuel injector cleaner through the system, get some for the tank. Also check for any vacuum leaks. Does it idle ok, or is it rough? How long has it been for replacing the distributor cap and plug wires? They will with age leak off high voltage, especially at critical times. A restricted fuel filter will rob you of power too.
