    Hi all I am new here I have a 2001 Tacoma. Now I need help please. The truck began flashing the CEL because of a misfire. Then started bucking and misfiring bad. I changed coil packs plugs and wires. This fixed the problem for 3 days. Today it started bucking again. Neighbor read codes says misfiring on cylinders 1,3 4,6. From what I have read it could be timing belt.
    Engine is not original replaced about 5 yrs ago.
    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Welcome to the forum
    I'm not sure but I believe all the 2000+ V6 Toyota trucks have chains.
    Yours is a chain as well.
    Have you tried running fuel injector cleaner through it? I would try Seafoam in the gas tank, I use a lot of Seafoam in on my combustion engines.

    Ty for that I will try the seafoam. Now she wont start. I moved e battery cables it starts. One night I turned of fan and it started the other day I move the wire harness that is on drive res side to back of engine and it started. Either Gremlins battery is bad or some serious electrical issue. Will let yall know. Thanx

    That's a good hint, I would check the "red" cable from the starter to the connector.
