Dave and Bill, I understand the problems I may have and I need to do an emission test too. I will try the jumper set up and see what I come up with.

Bill, I would love to pull the codes but don't have a code reader. Are you still up for helping me a bit in trade for a Battery????

PS what fuse would I need to pull? Can I just drive it around for a while?

Pulling the codes on an OBD1 system is a simple matter of counting flashes of the check engine light. The easiest way to reset the codes is to pull the battery, but then, you lose all your radio presets too...

Happy to help, most days I get home fairly early in the afternoon. Not so lately, work has been grinding on me.

Attached the PDF of the manual sections on diagnosing using the CEL on a 22R-E. The hardest part is counting the pauses in the event you have more than one code stored.

Also attached the section on the throttle body (and how to check the TPS).

I'll say it again, thank you TTORA for the online FSM!

Dave, after reading your PDF files I noticed I did not do many of the things it asked for. Looks like I need to redo some of it. But it runs so nice right now

Back to work I go

There is always the "if it ain't broke don't fix it" approach.












Yeah, never worked for me either. Too OCD.

If the engine had good power, idled nice and got reasonably good mileage (at least 15 MPG, probably touching 18~20 MPG even in your truck), that would be my approach as well. If you have good power and get only 12 MPG, then I would tinker with it.

Yeah, I guess people who actually get to do anything but commute to work in their trucks would probably have a better feel for their 4wd-low economy. :-/ My MPG had dropped recently to about 16MPG and I was stumped. That is until I opened the air filter box and noticed where there used to be an air filter I had a paper-backed wall of dirt, Miller moths and dog hair. New air filter = happy Dave again.

I will take it to the emission station and find out real quick. Everything seems to run just fine and with my set up I was still getting 19 mpg Only Toyota can do something like that and a masterful builder

I will follow up and let you guys know what the result is.

PS Bill what did you tell me I needed to get for my rear springs? I thought it was a U bolt type item but not sure how it would secure to stay in place. Can you remind a forgetful me???

PSS How is the knee replacement deal going? My right knee is killing me everyday and I am very close to doing it.
