I have a 1989 4x4 toyota pickup with 200,000 miles. I'm experiencing a problem while accelerating my pickup starts spitting and sputtering until it gets up to about 3000 rpms then stops. It kinda sounds like it has a miss while it idles to but not bad. The head gasket was replaced not to long ago and had a full tune up with plugs wires, plugs, rotor, and cap. What do you think would be causing this spitting and sputtering im experiencing?

Do you
have the same problem?

It sounds like a timing issue to me. I would take it back to the mechanic who did the work and have them reset the timing and check the timing chain/timing belt to make sure the trucks timing is correct. It definitely sounds like a timing issue if after 3k it runs fine.

Was this
