the light is not on..no codes come up

is anyone there
Toyota Mechanic: Toyota Service, Toyota Expert replied 8 months ago

No light coming on. Ok. That eliminates almost all of the electrical possibilities. Based on what you are experiencing, I would be inclined to think you have a stretched timing belt, or, the timing belt has moved a tooth on the camshaft sprockets.

A fuel filter would not cause this. As long as the engine starts and runs, ample fuel and pressure are being found at the injectors.

what about new plugs and air filter..will that help..?
Toyota Mechanic: Toyota Service, Toyota Expert replied 8 months ago

The plugs on this engine need to be replaced every 30,000 miles. Use ONLY Nippondenso plugs. If the plugs are worn, or incorrect, you will have a loss of power. Plugs and air filter would be a good idea before taking the front of the cam covers off.
