curtis1995 posted a topic in Toyota (ttuned.com)Hi there, I have a 1999 Toyota hiace with the 2rz-e engine, the van has done 350,000 kms and I've done 40,000 myself. The van always had a problem but I never bad enough to look into it further but I wish I had now. Anyway what the van used to do was kind of cut out/misfire/bog down when the tank would be less than a quarter and I'd be giving it a bit of throttle. Unfortunately yesterday it was a lot worse and was doing it a lot further down the rev range almost to the point where I could drive it. I was at work going from one job to another when all of a sudden i lost all power and couldn't even maintain my speed as the slightest touch on the throttle would cause it to misfire. I can to a stop at the side of the road, engine still running but not too smooth, I tried revving it up to see if I could nurse it home but wouldn't even go over about 1000rpm. When I have it full throttle the engine would chug and splutter and shake violently, it would rev up for a second or two but then drop straight back down and even backfire quite loudly. I changed my spark plugs, leads, and air filter about 15,000 kms ago and I didn't use the cheap crap either. My guess is the engine is being starved of something so I'm thinking: - fuel pump has given up - crap in the tank has been sucked up and blockage (unlikely) - fuel filter (ice never changed it as its in quite a hard spot to get to -distributor My question is, has anyone else ever had trouble like this and what exactly did you do to fix it, any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Curtis
hey guys, my friend bought a supra today and it was working fine on the drive back to my mates house, but after the car was sitting there for about an hour, there was something wrong with the engine.. either the engine or the clutch or gear... the problem is pretty much the car backfires before it even reaches the redline of the car so it pretty much backfires around 3-5k rpms, not only that but when you flat foot it it doesnt accelerate at all.. any ideas ?
