I have the truck listed above Hilux 22R, after driving for a little bit my car shuts off and it starts after trying for a while, I replaced spark plugs, cables and cleaned the tank but the issue still persists. The only thing I did not check is the opening circuit relay but I'm not sure if that will be the issue. The car jumps a little bit and then shuts off, once I'm able to start the car again it works perfectly for a few days and then the issue comes back.

Any advice will be appreciated!

This could be the fuel pump, circuit open replace or the ignition module (distributor) in most cases, though I have seen the ignition switch cause this problem as well. I would feel the ignition switch to see if it is warm, if so, the switch is bad. I have included this guide to help and images below to help you fix the problem.

Check out the images (below). Let us know what happens and please upload pictures or videos of the problem so we can see what's going on.

Thank you for your response, I will try replacing the ignition switch and the circuit opening relay to see what happens.
