    I have a 97 tacoma 2.7 5 speed. When in the lower rpms in say gears 3-5 it has a sweet spot where just cruizing it'll thump like i let off the gas and went back on it. I thought we'll maybe i'm just letting off the gas. But the other day i was in 3rd going up a hill and it started doing it bad, jumping/bucking more than it has been. I feel that is something with the fuel system. It does it pretty regular, but hard to reproduce it. Any idea what could be causing this?

    140k or so, don't know when if ever it was replaced. All I've done is changed the oil. I've had for a close to a year.

    I did clean the MAF sensor, and used seafoam a while back. Is there a write up of how to change the fuel filter and cleaning the throttle body on a 1st gen tacoma?
