Question about 1991 Toyota Pickup

1 Answer

Truck is sluggish on turns and pullouts.

After a few minutes of driving, the truck is sluggish when I turn on to a road. It doesn't happen all the time but it is nerve racking when pulling out into traffic. After a few seconds she picks up speed. I've replaced the catalyst converter and found out it was not defective. Had a complete tune -up and it still acts up. Can you shed some light on my problem.

    You may be right. I did not check this because I figured my mechanic checked it when he did the tuneup. I have noticed it happening right after a fillup.

Deceleration when driving

What kind of truck and what type of fuel gas or desiel? It almost sounds as if the computer is causing a fatal error and going into an shut down cycle. Some newer vehicles are setup to protect themselves when this happens. Helps prevent major damage to the engine. Is it over heating, if not maybe check that the temp gauge is working correctly. By shutting it off and then restarting you are in fact reseting the computer.

Truck doesn't hold the road on bumps. Turning on bumpy road at highway speed causes the truck to skitter. Shocks have been replaced. Ball joints?

the caster needs to be checked as well as loose steering components too much negative caster will cause this also too much air in the tires

Driving down the road and tranny started slipping so I pulled to the side of the road, then let the truck sit for 10 minutes, then the tranny worked again but within 1500 feet was slipping again, and will...

It sounds like you either have a dirty filter, or a solenoid is faulty in the transmission. Change the fluid and filter, put some Lucas transmission oil in it and see if that resolves the issue. If the solenoid is dirty then it will cause the transmission to shift improperly, the Lucas will clean it.

Honestly you should send it into the dealer. I don't think guessing will help you. Typically it is a dirty connection into the steering column (behind the ignition key) But diagnostics need to be run and a look at the VSS system (through a good scan tool) is needed to confirm.

Our truck died while driving down the road we replaced the fuel pump and now the truck starts and runs but its really sluggish and sputters alot

that may be caused by a plugged fuel filter or fuel line, you need too replace the filter when you replace the pump.............
