    my 86 toyota 4wd gets terrable gas mileage and lacks a lot of power
    for the gas mileage i just changed the sparkplugs and wires and a new fuel filter and the gas mileage is still crap :mad: like 8-10 mpg crap
    and as far as power goes the motor was rebuilt in may of 03 and ive put between 10,000-15,000 sence the rebuild

    the truck has a 22r and it has 216,000 miles on her but i wanna keep her running as long as i can

    any help?

    I wish I could do that right now...the older trucks are so fun to drive but feel a little underpowered after driving my v6 tacoma or driving my moms v8 sequoia.
