I tried the coil that didn't solve it

Look at this forum for tractors.
I hope it helps you!

Another thing that can cause this is the carb. It may be getting too much fuel once it's warmed up. An engine needs more fuel when it's cold than it does when it's warm. Cold engines run inefficiently so they need more raw fuel to fire-up, and stay running. This is all a choke does. A choke plate closes-off the air going into the carb which makes the fuel mixture really rich so it can run. Less air = more fuel. You'll also notice that cars with chokes also idle real high until they warm-up. This fast idle and the over rich mixture (due to lack of air), allows the engine to fire up and stay running. As the engine warms-up and starts burning fuel more efficiently, the choke plate begins to open, which slowly lets more air in and leans-out the air/fuel mixture. Once the engine is warmed-up, the choke plate will be wide open allowing the carb to run as it is supposed to with the correct metering of fuel and air.

My 91 laser will idel fine then warms up a bit and dies out! Then I have to give it fuel to start it again, then it runs rich and dies out again

Is the check engine light on? This can lead you to the source of the problem with a code scan test. Is it 4 or 6 cyl? Make sure the EGR valve is not stuck open as this will definately make it run rich and idle/stall. Common on the 6cylsfor a higher mileage engine.

I have an erratic idle problem

I would think you may have a vacuum leak & that is the
change in idle-- as well as the rich condition

Idles rugh , blows black smoke misses

General info...
Running very rich. Too much gas. Is this a carburetter with automatic choke? Inline 6 cyl.?
Sorry I'm not familier with the toyota itself.
Check that choke pull off is operating after initial start.
Remove air filter. Look at top of carb throat for a disc flap that is closed when engine is off and cold.
As soon as you start engine it should open about one third right away, then slowly open further as it warms up. It may be a small vacuum device that does the initial pull off.
If the flap does not open on start, then fully open when warm, that is the issue, causing your engine to run way too rich with gas.

Hi my pulsar idles/drives allryt till it gets warm then when its warmed up it want idle at all and when you cruse it missis and compresor surges but put your foot up it and it goes fine

Please check your fueling system. While clod car need rich AFR, in contrary while engine hot , your car need lean AFR. This why your car is running bad while engine cold.
