1995 Toyota T100 Base 4 Cyl 2.70L


My 95 Toy T100 4 cyl, misfires in 3 out of 4 cylinders. Runs bad in 1st and 2nd gears. Compression is good.

Plugs have been replaced, Fuel Pump replaced, Acts like fuel not flowing thru injectors right? Maybe timing?
Maybe head problem?

Possible Causes:
• Vacuum leak in the system
• Faulty fuel injectors
• Faulty ignition coil/s or coil pack
• Faulty camshaft position sensor
• Faulty high tension wires or spark plugs
• Faulty lambda probes (Oxygen sensors)
• Faulty ECU/ECM (Electronic Control Unit/Module)
• Burned exhaust valves
• Stuck or blocked EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) valve

Possible Solutions:
• Seal/replace parts with a vacuum leak
• Replace faulty injectors
• Replace faulty ignition coil/s or coil pack
• Replace faulty camshaft position sensor
• Replace faulty high tension wires or spark plugs
• Replace faulty lambda Probes (Oxygen sensors)
• Replace faulty ECU/ECM (Electronic Control Unit/Module)

Great checklist. Try all these 1st. then do the next thing listet from housecallauto. Get a good and safe cleaner as he says.

try the map sensor or the cam sensor. could also be an airflow sensor. When were the injectors cleaned or have they been replaced?

Disconnect (just the electrical connector) the mass air flow sensor and see if the truck runs substantially better. If it does, replace the sensor. Try cleaning first but I doubt it will solve it but try. Buy the $5 aerosol cleaner for the MAF sensor. When you unplug the MAF sensor the computer sees the open circuit and uses a substitute sensor value as a temporary help and often this substitute value allows the truck to suddenly seem to run almost normal, but it is not a setting that you can leave like that.
