88 22r Backfire and Bogging

So today, I purchased my first ever Toyota, an '88 22r 2wd 4speed Toyota Pickup. Starting out in first, the car boggs down, and slowly, studdering up to about 10mph, it'll start smoothing out and running fine, 2nd gear is pretty good, and 3rd gear is Okay, but at 65mph, I try to go into 4th, and the car wont gain speed, it'll just try, and backfire and studder. Everyone has been saying valves, or just 1. But I want to see what else it could be.

Thanks in advance for your advice, I appreciate it!

It sounds like it could just need a tune up. Plugs, wires, cap, and rotor. It is also a good idea to adjust the valves and check the ignition timing.

My cousin has a 22R that he was running with an out of adjustment and stuck open exhaust valve for a long time. I do not remember it stuttering or backfiring, it just had a severe lack of power. I had a Tacoma that would stutter at low RPMs and it turned out to be the ignition wires.

Well, I haven't had the time to get any work done to the thing, but I am going to do an oil change, plugs, plug wires, cap&rotor, and fuel filter. Hopefully the problem goes away with all that. I know a couple things wont matter, but they are needed. Also a new air filter. Current one is a little burnt up from the back firing. :| Oh, and the clutch fluid reservoir, that goes through the firewall, is leaking Dot3 break fluid all over my floor mats... Anybody know how to fix that problem? I was thinking of just putting gasket maker goop on there and tightening it back down, so I don't risk drying out the clutch ever again. Think that'll work?

If your leaking brake fluid into the cab then its time to replace the clutch master cylinder, just putting goo on it will not stop the problem, sounds like you have a few projects to tackle but once you are done you'll have an awesome truck! You might even get like many of us on here who own more than 1. Good luck, ask questions, everyone here has been in your shoes at least once. We are here to help, some would even lend a hand if they were closer.

My father Has a 22-RE in a 1992 PU and had the same problem after months of adj valves and timing he just took the head off of a 310,000 mile engine and has not had any problems since. it has been a year and a half now. On a note He also changed the mas air flow box off of the donor truck.

Goop will not fix the clutch cylinder. Even if you get it to not leak, it will eventually get bad enough that the clutch will not disengage. Clutch master cylinders are fairly cheap. I would recommend a factory AISIN one. You can find them on eBay for a good price and I think Marlin Crawler also sells them. I have installed a few master cylinders and I have noticed a big difference in the pedal throw and feel with the AISIN cylinders compared to the some of the cheap ones.

I actually just bought a replacement head for $25! So, I'm going to put that on in addition to of those tasks. And thanks for the advice about the master cylinder. I'll get right on buying a new one. But for now, top it off and drive the beast. Haha.
