Thank you for choosing JustAnswer and allowing me to help you resolve your Toyota questions!

 

Was the loss of power there before the repairs listed above? Has a compression test been done? Has there been any engine codes set in the computer?

Sorry, First time using this site, left more detail info on a later questioner.

 

2003 Toyota Tundra 6 cyl, 128,000 millage, 2 door base model

 

{Loss of power or hesitation occurs at different speeds while driving, not as I can remember at start up or from a stop position, and some what often- after repairs.}

 

Here goes: Recent repairs: A. oxengen sensor, spark plugs, shocks and struts B. timing belt, water pump, thermostat, and finally, fuel filter.

 

--- Issue began after (B) tasks......

--- No compression tests have been done as yet

--- When "engine light" was on the Computer Code Test reflected the replacement of one of two (A)oxygen sensor (the more expensive one). Computer Code Test was not completed after (B) tasks..

 

Hope this has help

Toyota Mechanic: Skyvisions, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 years ago

Have you verified correct timing of the timing belt? Retest for codes and check the compression and let me know what you find.

Within a week, I shall ask my mechanic, whom completed the described repairs, to check these items you suggested and report back to you. In the interim, I have filled up with high octane gasoline and added a fuel injection cleaner thinking this system may need attention.

Let me know how it goes.

The full tank of high octane fuel with the fuel injector cleaner is coming to the empty side of the gauge. The issue I was having has seemed to not rear it ugly head. Although, next time I have my oil change next month, I still ask my mechanic address your suggestions. Till then, I remain and will chat with you again should this issue or another question come forward. Thank you.
