Afternoon All,

I have recently bought a 1999 LN167 Hilux and it feels that it lacks power at top speed. Gear 1,2 and 3 seem fine but 4 and 5 lack power. On the highway in 5th it struggles to get to 100. Timing belt has been done and a full service. Seema to run fine otherwise. Any ideas?

Its a 20 year old Toymota what are you expecting?
Do a compression test and that could reviel a bit

I know they are slow which I was expecting but a few ppl I have spoken to who have owned them have said that they usually can sit on 100-110 comfortably on the highway where as mine struggles to get to 100

Try changing the fuel filter. I recall many years ago my Brother in laws hilux surf wasnt making full boost - changing the fuel filter sorted the issue
