Hello,
I just read here for about an hour trying to find an answer for my issue but didnt see one.
I just bought a 95 Taco with the 2.4 and I have a couple issues with it. When you put any kind of inout on the throttle is stumbles bad but onece it gets past the stumble it runs good till about 3000 RPM then I get a little jerking action as if it were running out of fuel. I have run it down the highway at 70 and it cruises fine.
Today I replaced the plugs,wires,cap and rotor. The plugs looked to have a lean condition and the cap and rotor were beyond shot but it didnt help the issues im having. I am in the process of burning a heavy dose of Techron fuel system cleaner through it right now. This little truck has good power once I get passed the stumble on take off and up to 3000 rpm. Im not really familiar with the Toy's although I have owned a couple. I am gonna change the fuel filter and see if that taked care of it.
Any more ideas would be much appreciated. I definatly aint afraid of tearing into it but just need some starting points.
Thanks in advance and I will get some pics posted. It has a pretty sweet custom paint job.
J:confused:

Let's start with the basics that everyone needs to take care of at some point or another. Definitely switch out that fuel filter. Clean the MAF sensor and the throttle body. Maybe replace the PCV valve too.

I own a 01 with a 3.6. I had alot of the same what you are experiecing. For me it was the Throttle Position Sensor.

However I do not know if the 95 has this item. Good Luck

TPS is the first thing I thought of but i dont think it has one. I believe it is all cable operated. I need to get a shop manual for it.


I will clean the MAF and see what happens. Should I use a electrical contact cleaner to spray it down or is there something else I should use.
Thanks

here's a link on another thread for a "how-to" on the throttle body & MAF cleaning.
It's not specifically for your year of pickup, but it should get you on the right track, with the right chemicals.

Thanks for the link. I pulled it apart and cleaned the MAF sensor. Put it all back together and she runs perfect!!!! Thanks for all the help.
It blows me away that a small dirty sensor can make that much difference.
Thanks again!!!:clap:
