1990 TOY P/U, v6 158K miles
i'm having an intermittent problem where i am cruising at 55-70 mph, either in 4 or 5th gear and i suddenly have a complete loss of power, the truck bucks slower when this happens, if i push the accel nothing, but, if i wait a few seconds i'll get power back. i've only seen this at highway speeds. i'm lost, any thoughts?
Sudden Loss of Power at Highway Speeds on 1990 Toyota Pickup
thanks for the response.
now the engine light is turning on. i did the diag code and it was 42, which is supposed to be the vehicle speed sensor.
i suppose if this sensor is not functioning properly it could be thinking the engine is in a serious over speed condition and cutting fuel supply? does anyone know if this is a possibility?
also, does anyone know the location of the VSS? is it someplace i can get to when i'm on my back under the truck? or should i just take it to the dealer?
anyone have a link for a 1990 toyota 4WD PU service manual? (i have them, but they are in alaska and i am in florida....)
