    So I finally get the frame rails repaired and the gas gauge fixed and my beater is back on the road. I have an erratic idle problem. Since this is my first foray into Toyotas, what should I replace or check out first? Are there any other issues with the 22 RE I should expect to encouter?

    Thanks
    BA

    How's the timing chain? MAF sensor?

    22R platform is pretty simple. Add the E and it' gets a little more complicated.

    Is the 22RE notorious for stretching timing Chains? This is the second time I have heard this.

    TPS, ICV(?), fuel delivery, old dirty injectors

    the service manuals have good trouble shooting.

    timing is easy to check :D

    is it loping (sp?) up..down..up, or eratic like fire fire misfire?

    try to determine if it is spark related.:rolleyes:

    Runs smooth, no miss. Just jumping up and down. Seems to get better as it warms up. It has to be a sensor of some sort. I need to get a service manual for this thing.
