Engine Mechanical problem
1991 Toyota 4Runner 6 cyl All Wheel Drive 208000 miles

okay heres my dilema I have had 3 certified mechanics look at my 91 4runner each with different theories on what could be wrong we have done all three.
1. My cat was after market.
2. Fuel pump was bad.
3. Fuel filter was bad

okay we did number 3 first and replaced it. Simple enough. Then we went on dropped the fuel tank pulled out the the fuel pump and checked it working just fine. Then we went ahead and tested the cat after putting it all back together fine. Now we just found a fuel leak. My question is.
My car begans to whistle after you hit about 35 miles and hour most time some times it does it after 20mph, you also will hear kinda a puff puff noise coming from the driver side when your driving on occasion. My car was working fine till last month had it for 4 months. Now I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions cause I am out of ideas so is everyone else please?

So the fuel pump went bad. Now it starts but stalls and there is a fuel leak.

Fix the fuel leak and it will restore pressure that the engine needs. Post back f there is a problem still after the fuel leak repair. IF so, what is the fuel pressure?

So you didn't replace the pump?

When you tested the pump, did you just test for volume and didn't do a pressure test?

A pump can still pump but not pump enough to raise the pressure to what it needs to be.
