    hey everyone, i've got an 01 tacoma, 4x4 with the 2.7 liter. My trucks a 5speed, and after going mudding last week my truck seems like it's not accelerating as quickly as it used to. it seems to be happening in second gear, espically when i'm in the higher RPM's. i should also say that unless i'm accelerating hard the truck seems to go just fine. any ideas?



    just incase anybody's interested heres a video of the mudding...

    my only guess is to check your air filter for debris or damage

    Yeah I did that too...right after I went I was experiancing some hesitation in the motor, but I've got that cleared up now...it almost feels like tranny lag, if that's possible? The motor revs fine all the way up to redline like it ues too.

    You can wash the mud off the pickup, which removes a lot of excess weight, so your acceleration comes back :]
