#11 of 86 Toyota TRD acceleration problem ~
Jul 03, 2007 (6:29 pm)
I have a 2006 Toyota Tacoma TRD SR5 Off-Road Edition, 4.0L V6 5speed automatic. I am experiencing problems when accelerating from about 45-55mph and 70mph or above. When I hit the pedal for a little throttle action it jumps and acts as though it is misfiring and stalls somewhat. I am not a mechanic and dealing with Toyota dealerships for a possible problem is sometimes not worth it, but they will have to fix whatever is wrong because it is under warranty. Anyone know of a possible problem? Thanks!
#12 of 86 98 tacoma rough idle when raining?
Oct 01, 2007 (8:52 pm)
I have a 98 tacoma 2.4 cyl that I bought from my Dad w/181k. The truck runs great unless it is raining, or there is moisture in the air. After it is parked overnight and it rains during the night, it will have these symptoms. Rough idle and it wants to stall? On sunny days it runs like a champ? Where would be the first componet to check? Mass airflow sensor? plug wires? Any sugestions would be great.
Thanks for your time,

I have a 2008 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 Access Cab v6 4.0L, that has the same problem with the starting, My truck has a grand total of 1200km's on it, I've had it for less then 3 weeks. The truck takes 2-3 tries of turning the key for the engine to start. When the truck does finally start, it works great. Jap Crap or what?

Have had a 98, a 2001, and 2007. All have done that. I find that it's mostly due to the A/C Compressor kicking in while at a stop causing the RPM's to increase momentarily making it feel like a lurch.

#17 of 86 07 Tacoma extra cab will not start
Jan 08, 2008 (2:58 pm)
Hi everyone...Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this problem. I have a 2007 Tacoma 4x4 purchased in August.. In late Nov. I went out to my truck and it would not start. Tried several times to no avail. The tow truck driver tried also. It had to be flatbedded to my local dealer. It started right up for them. It was decided that the EGR valve was defective and they "told " us they replaced it. We took the vehicle home after a week. A week later, the same thing happened.[Apparently nothing was done the fiirst time.] After several tries, it started and my husband drove it to the dealership. This time it was determined to be the alarm we had installed thru them. They had the vehicle two weeks for this probelm. And then last week (Jan 5)..it did it again and had to be flatbedded into the dealer again. It started right up for them. They are at a loss and we don't know what to do. Any ideas anyone? Thanks for any info

Replace your spark plug wires, It is miss fire due to the spark is leak thru the wire insulation. if you turn your car at darkroom you might be able to see where the arc is between the wires or to the chasse.

I have a 97 Tacoma with a 2.4L and auto trans.The idle drops to the point the whole truck shakes.This happens when in in drive not in park.I have performed a complete tune-up using factory parts.New plugs,wires and etc.The motor mounts are good.I have ran complete diag with my scan tool,which shows live data and there are no codes present.I have cleand the IAC valve and throttal body.There are no vaccum leaks and the engine timming is correct.If you step on the gas pedal slightly,the engine idle feels perfect.Other notes, the fuel pressure is correct and the PCV valve is new.There is no idle adjustment procedure on the hood sticker or in my Haynes manual.Can the idle be adjusted without interfearing with the electronic engine control?
