    Just wanted to get your guys take on this and see what we can figure out.
    I have a 2000 taco 2.4 4x4 5 speed when I'm driving it at low rpm it has a hesitation in it but when I get it up over 3 grand it stops and smooths out. I have tried new spark plugs higher test gas injector cleaner nothing seems to be helping. I had a buddy tell me that it might be my mass air flow sensor needs checked. You guys have any suggestions

    Thanks
    Jon

    The MAF is easily and cheap to clean. Disconnect, remove and spray with MAF cleaner. Make sure it's dry before you re-install. You also may want to look at the vacuum lines for cracks or leaks.

    Hitch and wiring, aux back-up light, rear strobe lights, radio and underseat sub.
    Check/clean your Idle Air Controller, and check rubber/plastic parts of the air induction system for cracks/holes.

    Check your plug wires and coil packs for arcing. Dark garage, mist water onto a running engine, look for sparks.
