Default Good 22re Mechanic in Denver Area

Hey guys,

Kind of new here. But I have an 22re 86' 4runner that is having some issues.
I'd like to work on her myself but I have neither the time or a place to do it.

I'm dealing with an engine bay that smells like gas fumes whether it is running or not. And I am having issues with a really rough idle and hard start in the warmer weather we've been having and about a 2-3 crank hardstart when it is below 30F.

Does anyone have any suggestions for a shop that is well versed in these older engines? I took it to Toyexus when I first bought her. They did good work but it seemed apparent they weren't used to work on the older models.

Thanks!

I second what squishy said. ATLR is in Wheat Ridge off of 44th.

Here is a thread I found on yotatech. Cold start injectors are known to leak on 22RE.

Thanks for the quick replies guys! I'll give them a call and see what they can figure out. I was thinking that it may be the CSI but wasn't convinced since it is still an issue after it sits for a few days.

Leaking fuel filter maybe? What part of town are you on?

I'd suspect the fuel pressure regulator and the vapor can. If it's not a leaking gasket or fuel filter at least.

Anyway, who I'd trust to work on an old heap with a 22R-E would be:

Jesse @ ATLR
Joe Calleja @ CTS
Mark @ Comprehensive
