Chapter loses power when engine light comes on turn the key on and off and runs good till the light comes on

It is a new motor

Won't start until it cools down. Starts and runs fine. If I keep the hood up when it's parked, it will start and run. If I can get it moving , it will run rough for a few minutes, then it runs fine. It's getting a little more difficult to start in the morning than it used to.

After a few tries the engine will slowly crank over and then finally start. It runs fantastic after it gets goins, I only have a problem when I'm trying to start it.

Ive been mech for 40 yrs but this one is a tuff one. I replaced fuel pump&filter and it starts and stalls in 5 sec. Its fuel injected and it has a starter injector which adds xtra gas at start up. How do you test all injectors with ohm meter and then test them with a stethascope. supposed to hear them humming. Is this correct? Do you know what else problem could be. I also replaced the regulator with a adjustable pressur regulator. Do you know these aanswers of good tests to make on injectors. Do you know what other problems could do this to the engine? Thank you. Please get back to me.

I have a 1988 Toyota pickup truck, 22RE engine. It's capable of having an AC unit. It's got all the connections. I took out the AC unit from the 1990 rec truck, both trucks have 22RE engines. Everything is brand new now that I put in my truck.There is only one thing different. The 1988 only has 3 wires, the negative, positive, and ground. The 1990 AC switch has 5 wires. What do I do? Do I convert the truck? Can you please help me on how to do it? I'm going to find somebody to help me but please can you give me the idea how. Thank you so much. I will wait for your answer. Mahalo.

This problem has been going on for about 6 months now. Its been at the shop for the last few months and they couldnt figure it out. It started by sputtering and sometimes dying at stop lights. Then started stalling if you hit the brakes too hard. Sometimes after stalling it would take a minute to start and when it did a substantial amout of black smoke would come out of the exhaust indicating flooding/ richness. So i started replacing parts based on recommondations from other mechanics. New: fuel pressure regulator, plugs and wires, distributor assembly, fuel pump, egr valve, throttle position sensor, pcv valve along with intake plennum gasket, ive gone through all the vacuum lines and replaced quite a few. So now it will start up fine and idle great. It will run all day in park, reverse, ant neutral, but stalls as soon as you put it in drive. You can turn the wheels all the way right and back to center, but as soon as you turn the wheels left past center, it chokes out. It will also stall sometimes by just pressing the brake, with the brake booster vacuum line unhooked, it wont stall, so im assuming the booster is leaking somewhere. The power steering is also vaccum assisted, ive taken off and plugged up the two vacuum lines going into the control unit on the ps pump, and it still stalls when turning left. Im out of ideas.

My 1990 PU has 90,000 mi. I was told thru a local shop (not dealer)the idlearm, tierods, and other suspension components need replacing. Cost ~ $1,000. I'm also experiencing the same non-shift into overdrive (as mentioned in your forum) so a solenoid has been ordered and i'm fixing that first. Thoughts on cost/benefit for suspension work? Thanks!

After assembling the engine.. From replacing timing chain guides.. We have long intake bolt to where we can't figure where it goes.. Could this cause the surge due to vac leak?.. Does water run through this particular port where this bolt should be?.. And could this be the cause for the surging.. After warm up?
