Start with changing the fuel filter and the air filter. if thats not the cure then have the fuel pressure checked. the fuel pump may be going out.

Perhaps it's a stuck carburetor float valve, bad fuel pump (if it has one) or clogged fuel filter.

My landcruiser runs fine at idle and whilst been revved stationaty, but under load it seems to starve for fuel this only started yesterday ... i'm looking for possible causes .. thanks


many things will feel the same when driving. if the lack of power is smooth without a shacking-missfire.remove the air cleaner element and see how it performs this way ,you could have a blockage in there ,ihave found mouse nests blocking this air pasage. you could have low fuel supply, plugged fuel pressure, low fuel pressure,bad fuel pump, you could have a plugged catalytic converter,this usually shows up as slower and slower speed when accelerateing at full throttle but will gain soom acelleration when backing of the gas.if its missing ,lock at the spark plugs, wires or fuel injectors.

Fuel Reg........


Fuel pressure should not drop more than 5 PSI in 24 hours, the symptom you have is more than one issue, first verify the system holds fuel pressure over night, the pressure regulator will not cause this issue, the check valve built into the fuel pump will. On to the dieing concern, clean the idle speed control air bypass valve and the throttle valve with throttle body cleaner spray with the engine running at high idle, spray in at least 1/2 can of the cleaner, next disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then drive for 2 days under varying conditions to "relearn the idle strategy".
