The gearbox can not cause the engine to lose power. Loss of power when flooring it usually is fuel starvation from a clogged fuel filter. But a bad turbo charger bearing, bad plug wire, timing off, or clogged catalytic converter will also do this.

Could be lots of things, like clogged catalytic converter, bad plug wires, timing off, etc., but I suspect this may be a bad bearing on the turbo charger. It they don't spin, they cause blockage.

Where is the inertia switch located

The Maserati Biturbo inertia cutoff for the fuel pump is in the trunk on the upper right. Just follow the wires back from the fuel pump. There is a red button on top to reset. If it goes bad, just unscrew it and shake it vigorously to loosen the ball inside.

I have a maserti biturbo and i was wonering which way the fuel flows wether it would go through air conditioner pipe to the fuel pressure regulator and then into the injectors or does it go the other way...

I've never heard of fuel going thru the A/C lines! But normally it is fuel tank, fuel pump, fuel filter, injectors, pressure regulator back to fuel tank. This is how it works on my Porsche, Jaguar and Alfa Romeo. Good luck!

I have an 85 biturbo es and it is not getting spark out of the disturbutor cap it is getting fire out of the coil it has a new cap and rotor button please help

How do you know it's not getting fire out of the cap? are you sure the wire from the coil to the cap is good. High voltage has no problem getting across from the rotor to the terminals for each cylinder inside the cap as long as the rotor is pointing to the cylinder your checking, moisture inside the cap is the only thing that could misdirect the spark, make sure the cap is clean and dry and make sure your new rotor and cap are the right ones by comparing them with the old parts. Was it not firing before you got the new parts?

Hydraulic clutch grinding from 1st to 2nd - Toyota 1985 Pickup

Yes, your clutch might be worn and/or out of adjustment or the trans is worn. Your clutch may be fine also. Toyota's have a problem with there shifter bushings and seats. They brake and crack also causing shifting problems. And some times only one gear depending on the condition.If yours is broken,crack or damaged, you can find the parts from Toyota and there a whole lot cheaper than a clutch. Also I recommend adjusting the clutch if possible. Not all are adjustable. Check your clutch fluid.
