2000 tundra v6 5-speed cold start truck runs great, park it for 20-30 min it will start fine but after going 1/4 mile it dies, looses power. pull over and it will backfire and sputter until it eventua


bad need of a tuneup? like new spark plugs, ?
172 , is 02 rich/ lean warning. this one is low oxy for rich.
this code can just be a victim. for sure , with misfire.
means 02 sensor stuck at rich,
what is water temp in engine coolant, at failure? less than 150F?
could be lots of things.
leaking injectors, bad fuel.
injector sticking> causing misfire.
id use a scan tool and watch all sensor when it fails.
too high fuel pressure.
misfires cold, but only luke warm cold starts not fully cold.

just one DTC, no P0300 or 30x misfire codes, not even P0300 pendings?

Engine sputters, exhaust shakes, lagging accelleration


check the plugs again and see if they are oily again, if they are NOT oily check the ignition coil if it is giving current to all four plugs, if not ,change it.it might be shorting out when it is hot.........If the plugs are oily again, and assuming the valve cover has been changed,sorry to say you have an internal eng.piston ring problem. more tests must be done to pin point the problem.

No clue what is wrong... and apparently neither does my mechanic...


sounds like you got some water in your gas ,, or your mass air flow sensor is shorting out , or dirty

I have an 83 camaro z28 with a 5.0 305 engine, why does it sputter when accelerating past 30 miles per hour


Could be any number of things. Bad coil or weak spark, low fuel pressure or clogged fuel filter. A breakdown of the ignition subsystems equivalent to points and firing sensors.

You should check EGR by very temporarily plugging vacuum line and see if performance is changed. Sometimes blocked exhaust Catalytics or collapsed muffler baffles will plug up the exhaust and require too much push to clear the pipes.

I have a 1997 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4.0 I6 with about 155k miles that is having intermittent issues. I just recently had to replace my muffler because of the car backfiring. This problem doesn't happen...


Have it checked with a computer diagnostics. It sounds like it could be a bad sensor, quite possibly your oxygen sensor. A bad sensor could cause the computer to think your engine needs more fuel.

Replaced battery, plugs, wires, cap, rotor, air filter, fuel filter, added heet water removal and lucas fuel injector. It sputters, backfires/pops when accelerating and it has no power, drives like a golf...


How many miles? I am NOT a mechanic! Sounds like possible timing belt/chain jumped a tooth. Or the timing advance mechanism is malfuctioning. (Unlikely - check distributor is tight or not shifted from normal position too far back or forward.) Assuming belt and not chain, 80 k miles or more, likely need to replace timing belt in any case, before it breaks. If it breaks, you'll be replacing valves and pistons too.
