2.7 is running bad

I have a 2.7l and wen it hits about 2500 rpms it seems to fall on its face almost like a cylinder isnt firing or something. Has anyone else had this problem?

Any check engine lights?
I would try cleaning the maf and throttle body.

Welcome to Tacomaworld!

EDIT: also how many miles? I suppose timing could be off a tooth... but that is over my head

when's the last time you changed your spark plugs? could be fouled and producing a strong spark.

when it's dark, with the truck running(if it's runningat all) with a squirt bottle(mist setting not stream) spray water around the plug wires(coil packs) and look for an electric afro.

when's the last time the fuel filter was changed?

Yesterday i changed te fuel filter and cleaned the entire intake with intake cleaner and break clean and a ton of black gunk came out of it and now it seem to be running mint again. Would it be a good idea to seafoam it again? And i will try to put pictures up once i get access to a computer.

If you want to foam it again I say wait till your next oil change.
Seafoam a couple days before you change the oil.
