Engine Performance problem
1988 Toyota Pickup 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 175000 miles

At speeds aproaching thirty five mph or under heavy loads the engine hesitates. It idles fine, new plugs and wires, new fuel filter, new transmission filter and fluid. I wonder if the EGR valve could be sticking or have clogged injectors. What should I check first?

Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it
