why does my toyota t-100 truck(1998) start and run then die as if turned off?


Asked by Aug 14, 2014 at 11:59 PM about the 1998 Toyota T100 2 Dr SR5 Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Fuel supply seems good.  It will run about 30 seconds then die.  If I wait abouit 1 minute it
will start again only to die in about 30 seconds.  If I immediately spray ether into intake
after it dies it will start bback up, but only run a few(10) seconds.  Is this a air sensor
failure problem?

Will it stay running if you keep your foot on the gas pedal a little?
