    My Truck is having a funky problem!!!! It's a 98 TRD. V6. What is does is it runs and idles just fine.The tack doesn't tick or fluctuate at all. When I cruise at about 2.25 grand it cuts out or kinda stalls. It accelerates just fine and smooth but once I start just cruising along it cuts out. It's not concistant either. It's very intermitten. I've changed the fuel filter,Air filter and reset the computer. I think that it all started happening when I changed the Throttle position sensor. I don't know for sure. There is no check engine light or anything visible wrong. What do you guys think?:confused:

    Kinda, But If I mash the gas it doesn't hesitate or stall. It is really weird. If I accel up to lets say to 2500rpm then coast a little it will cut out just for a second After I drop a little rpm. Then I push the gas again and it picks right back up. It doesn't do it under a load...It's really starting to frustrate me.

    TPS I bet. Try this: with the truck off, press the gas pedal (full range up and down) for 100 times or so. Then see if it does it again. Sounds like you have a "dead spot" in the sensor.
