Hey everyone so i took my 3.0 out of my 88 4runner for the eighth time it was still running fine but my bro decided to take apart his 89 4runner. So i bought his 22re and tranny transfercase for 400 bucks with all the wiring. i changed everything right down to the fuse box. but im still having the same problenm as he did in his truck. the engine starts up and idles fine but under load accelerating it stutters and farts and misses sounds like its drowning or not getting enough fuel. untill i get to about 3000rpm then it just revs up fine:dontknow: What i read on the internet is that this is a O2 sensor problem? Has anyone had this problem and what you do to fix it?

[cheers] Adam

also have a whole bunch 0f first gen 4runner parts lemme know what you need mostly body parts cuz my bro is keeping the axles and i took the engine and tranny transfercase

it sounds dumb, but check the fuel filter. I had the same sounding problem with my 89 4cyl and changed the filter for shits n giggles....worked though.

I had a similar prob. Was the harness, 2 exposed wires. Could be many things. Park it facing south may help [15]

Try putting all your change in one pocket. Turn your hat backward and tie one shoe lace in a double knot :party0010: Worked for tin cup

Had the same problem years ago on a 22re,idled fine missed until 4000rpm than ran fine.Turned out it was the plug wires.

It might be the igniter.

There was one year of 22re that had a weird ignition.

I remember chacing problems in my buddy's years ago.

Check the wires, plug, cap and coil.

Clean the throttle body, check for vacuum leaks, fuel pressure regulator.

It sound like its starving for fuel or weak ign.

Double check the timing, it may be a tooth out.

I would say, pull all of your plugs out, connect them back to your wires, rest them on the valve cover and turn it over. Check and make sure that you are getting a nice blue spark from each plug. If it's not the fire problem, its fuel or vacuum. Make sure that all of the vacuums are correct, not cracked or plugged. If both those check out, check your injectors. And if that's good to, your mass air flow would be next.

I have a 90 22re in my truck. I could take some photos of the vacuums for you if you want to double check the routing

The problem with that is it will only tell you if theres spark at cranking rpm.
I tested mine that way and though they were fine but the plug wires were shot.

Just do a tune up replace all the wear parts

Exactly, process of elimination. And if those things, which would take maximum an hour to check, check out. Than you go to coils, and other electrical. But it's kinda hard to come to that conclusion without knowing everything else is properly in order. Just sayin. And I'm pretty sure that the intensity of the spark doesn't change with rpm, only the speed of the spark, which may or may not increase heat(depending on the quality of the wire). And if that was the case it would be your coil. Your wires would need to be so old for that to be the problem and I believe he said his were new.

Changing parts till it works better is just a gamble. Figure it out

Check list....

plugs / plug gap
wires
cap/rotor/coil
fuel filter
fuel pressure / fuel flow.......lines could be rusted, i had to replace mine on my 82'.
rust/ water in tank
compression test
timing<--------- !!!
check alternator out put and load test batt. (relates to igniton)
clean throttle body....remove and clean with throttle cleaned and toothbrush espcially behind the throttle plate... DO NOT USE BRAKE KLEEN !!!
check for vacuum leaks.....espcially around the throttle body.


That should get you going...

pm me with your number if you need more help.

If you changed the TPS out, you MUST calibrate it correctly. Mine was doing the same thing as yours when I did a 22re swap (from 22r). Timed it for 8 degrees before and it ran like a bag of shit.

Had a friend come over with a feeler gauge and adjusted the TPS correctly. My 8 degrees turned into 22 degrees advanced once the TPS was adjusted. Set it back to 8 and the thing ran like a champ [cheers]

Not a gamble called maintenance changing plugs, wires, cap and rotor if equipped is normal wear parts

so cap rotor plugs and wires all have only a couple trips on them i check the installation of them and everything is good. checked all the vacuum lines against my buddys 89 i found two that were switched... so i straightened that out. removed stock v6 fuel filter from frame rail and installed new straight fuel line.... thats all so far it has improved a lil bit but still not drivable! :confused0006:

is there anything in the throttle body that gets stuck like a stupid spring or something?????? anyways thats it so far

thanks for all the input
