If you have to use the choke after the engine has warmed up, it means that the carb is not working properly, maybe a jet is clodded up. Try running some carb cleaner in your gas tank. Also make sure you have good gas in the tank. If that doesn't help, you may need to get the carb rebuilt. When you put the machine in gear, the engine is looking for lots of gas and if the carb cannot keep up with the extra demand for gas, then the engine will die. Good luck with that.

1998 tacoma 3.4L sputters then clears up shifting through the gears

Check the throttle positon sensor on the throttle body. You can do that with a meter. Your idle air control turns off when the truck heats up and is the reason you are noticing it more after it is warmed up.

Shift CABLE?...On my way from Chicago to Milwaukee, my shift stick (automatic) got stuck in last gear, as I tried to pry it from last gear it became losen and stuck in drive. I got home safely but I knew...

Disconnect cable at the trans and try to move the shift lever. If cable moves freely, try to move control arm on trans to make sure it's free. (don't forget,,,do this with engine off and wheels chocked so it dosen't roll away on you!
Chances are the cable is bad.
