    Mine is doing the same thing right now. Does it at the lower rpms then slows back doen around 3500- 4K.

    Will floor it in 1st and it feels like it does not want to rev and takes forever to hit the limiter and isnt strong when it does

    I ran a can of BG 44K total system cleaner in a tankfull.
    She runs a hell of alot better now. Idles waaay smoother, accelerates quicker, and gets better mileage too.:top:
    The stuff cleanes out everything, any and all deposits on the injectors, valves, piston, combustion chamber, everywhere. Any gunk in the fuel system that is petroleum residue, carbon or otherwise gets dissolved on a molecular level so no chunks of crap get let loose to mess up something else downstream.
    Sensor safe too!
    Any Toyota dealer can also do a BG flush kit, which is like 44K on steroids.

    Also just noticed yesterday that when i washed my truck, I had a lot of black exhaust residue on my side skirt where the exhaust runs through.

    Never had any on there before but now I did... Running a lil rich?

    Just hit 30K today and had the washer fluid motor replaced today under warranty. Didnt even want to bother with telling them something is wrong with my truck.

    this is whats happening to me too, for example when i want to take off it feels like forever to reach 3500 rpm, but when it does it takes off, this will happen in any gear. at first i was thinking it was the clutch but if it was then i would feel it throughout all the rpm range. so i believe it may need a cleaning. also i have close to 45k

    its not bogging out at all
