2006 Tundra problem accelerated rapidly away from a traffic light in order to merge with traffic, reaching a speed of 65 to 70 mph at that time. Drove for about two miles, turned into my neighborhood and up my street. Parked truck in driveway, no idiot lights at that time, gauges were normal. After about 20-30 minutes attempted to restart truck. It would crank strongly, begin to start, sputter and die. Attempted several more times, with same result. It acted like it was not getting fuel. After 10-15 minutes of cool down, it still refused to start. Finally managed to get it started by pumping gas pedal and repeatedly cranking. Finally it caught, but required revving to stay running. At last it settled down to an idle. Tundra problems continued: Friday 4/14/06 accelerated gradually away from a stop light down an exit ramp and onto the highway. Truck began hesitating or stumbling for about 30 sec., then smoothed out. Saturday 4/15 /06 turned right and began accelerating up an incline with full load of passengers. Truck began stumbling; acting like it was not getting fuel, upon coming to a traffic light, it stalled when I came to a stop. No check engine light came on, it was like I had turned off the key. Managed to get it started, and it ran the rest of that evening without further incident. This occurred about 6:00 P.M. and the air temperature was in the low 80S. Tuesday 4/18/06 was driving around the baltimore beltway at speed, when the engine began missing at a speed of approximately 65 mph. This continued for at least two, and possibly three minutes. Traffic suddenly came to a complete stop. At this point, the engine died, and again there was no check engine light, the engine just turned off. 4/19/06 on the drive from owings mills to waldorf, I needed to pass a truck towing a boat. As I pressed on the gas, the engine began to stumble again and would not accelerate.
