    Hey all. New to this forum. I've got a 95 4runner and it's been running great until about a week ago. My son was out in it and it just stalled out. He waited about half an hour and it started back up. 15 minutes later it died again. I let it sit for several days at home then went out to try it. It started fine. After 15 minutes it died again. Any suggestions would be great

    Hello, I am in no form of the word a mechanic, but I'll pass on a few suggestions and theories I have encountered with my 3.0 & engines/ fuel in general. The engine bay of a 3.0 Toyota is filled with vacuum lines. My 1st troubleshooting area would be there. I ran into the same problem with my 95. I hooked up a smoke machine to mine and discovered a lot of leaks. Mine would run fine for 10 minutes or so then idle way low and eventually choke itself out. It ended up being a crack in both of the vaccine lines running to the power steering pump/ fluid resovour. People have mixed feeling about a fuel pump and if they just die or start to loose compression and the power to drawl fuel. I had a 99 that would do fine at first, then act like I ran out fuel. I replaced the pump and had no more issues, good luck
