    It's late and I'm tired.

    Some people including myself love to know the full history of a vehicle that they've purchased, so that down the line when something hits the fan, you might have a lead to what have possibly gone wrong.

    You did. Bastard! Lol I started thinking about it and yea your right. Was looking at it from a low budget selfish high schooler-like perspective then remembered what it's like to be on the other end of of one of those surprises. Not fun. I agree with you now honesty is definitely the way to go

    The 4runner is doing that super annoying stall in traffic while driving. I am close to lighting it on fire on the side of the road. I thought the coils fixed it but it appears not. Thinking crank position sensor or cam position sensor. Maybe a broken fuel injection wire?

    You don't have to kill anyone, just be worthy of the banner. Guess you haven't got there yet....haha.


    Also I'm not sure how they are selected. That picture is super old and I have been apart of this site for 5 years now so it might just be a picture bob saved when the 4Runner sections wasn't as active.

    Concerning those supercharger parts we talked about a few weeks ago:

    I got the gasket and the one way valve. Both with shipping was $26. I will install at some point today, but both look perfect.

    Nice I thought they were all out but looks like you scored.

    Regarding the stalling, have you cleaned your throttle body or MAF lately? Also check/clean your battery connections. I had an issue with mine stalling and cleaned up all three and it fixed it. Not sure which one actually fixed it since I did all three at once.

    I talked to the guy that was fulfilling the order and he said that they are producing them still and have no problem fulfilling orders.

    I will clean up the sensors this afternoon when I throw the gasket and valve on there.

    Weird, I tried so many places to find both parts and couldn't.

    Yeah I pulled off the freeway one day and the 4runner died on me. Started it up, but had to keep it revved (automatic) so it wouldn't die till I got home. Ended up pulling the entire MAF and throttle body apart, cleaned them and pulled both battery terminals off and cleaned them. The next morning I tried it and it all worked. Never knew what fixed it, but it never happened again. Might be your problem, otherwise might be a fuel issue, have you changed your fuel filter?

    The guy seemed annoyed I even asked. Like of course we have these parts.


    I replaced the coils and that helped for a while. Thought I fixed it. I have some intake spray cleaner I can try. Easy enough. If it isn't a connection or intake sensor I am willing to bet fuel pressure regulator.

    Changed filter a few months ago.
