    So, I traded trucks with my mother a couple weeks back, due to shoulder surgery. Yes, my taco is a six speed. I haven't had any problems with the truck until now.

    She drove over a flower pot of some sort, at Mcdonalds. For some reason, it died, then wouldn't stay running. So, she had to get it towed back to her house. We live three hours away, so, now I am over here trying to figure this out. It starts, and runs for a few seconds, then dies. It acts like it is not getting gas.

    What is up with this? :confused:

    I can now see my 4x4 switch in the dark.
    Could it be a pinched fuel line? I would have someone trace the fuel lines front to back. That's my guess for what its worth.

    Pinched fuel line will allow enough fuel to get through and get the truck started, but once the residual pressure wears down, it will not run. Check fuel filters and pumps as well.

    For anyone: Does the tacoma have two fuel pumps? One in tank and one up front?

    When she hit did it disconnect affect a gas line or did she hit the gas tank itself and knock the fuel pump out...

    after removing the plastic plate that covers the engine, I found that a sensor that plugs into the k&n intake tube had come off. I think its some sort of "O2 sensor."

    The bolts had come off, and I fixed it with a good old roll of duct tape.

    thanks guys
