car repairs


Question by  Johnnie (25)

What could cause a rough idle, bucking, and heavy fuel consumption of an older Toyota pickup?

I'd like to attempt to troubleshoot these problems. Where do I begin?

The first place to look is the MAP sensor. Its connected to the air intake hose on the top right of the engine.

First, a common problem is the ignition circuit, which tends to be rusty and / or greasy on these vehicles. Secondly, I have often heard about varying quality with gas. Be careful to buy it at high-cost stations, not the cheap ones. This will help in the long run, from my experience.

You could obtain a Toyota scan tool. Employ this while the car is running, and make sure you catch it in the act so you can record the malfunctions. Then you can ask a garage for further advice.

I would start with the spark plugs and coils/spark plug wires. If any of these are bad, they would cause the engine to run rough.
