I just bought an 89 Toyota 4x4 pickup, 22RE EFI engine, MT, 182,000. The water pump blew on it and it was replaced. However, it ran fine before it blew but now the engine will idle fine until you open the throttle. If you open it up all the way the engine dies. When you do it slowly it will increase but only til about 3/4 of the way open. It's spitting some black smoke from the exhaust and the check engine light is on. The guy I bought it from thinks it's the ECM. But I don't really think it is. Any suggestions on where to start or what the problem is would be greatly appreciated.
