Hallo, I just got 1999 Toyota 4Runner V6 Limited with 170,000 km. I experience some shaking vibrations at around ~ 80 km/hr, usually when driving uphill. Looks like a power loss, and as soon as I hit the gas and go over ~ 85 km/hr the shaking vibration is gone. Looks like a major power loss and a problem with downshifting at this particular situations. Everything else is perfect with the car. I asked my mechanic for a ride with me to show him this unusual behavior and he seems to be puzzled - everything seems to be ok with the engine and transmission and there is no "check engine" light; the timing belt was supposedly changed at 161,000. Could this be false information and the need for a new timing belt? Please help!
have the same problem?
