i have the same car and it used to have the same problem. all you need to do is take for major service, thus any Toyota garage. you also need to clean / replace the tank fuel filter and clean the fuel line system. another thing might be you need to adjust accelarater cable, so that your rpm is above 750.

Hi I have a 1999 model and had the same problem. i removed the Thermostat and it's now ok. but you need to do regular service and check the fuel you use. avoid leaded fuel and preferably use "light" fuel

I have that same problem with my car. The thing is that because it's imported from Japan and it's RHD, the local toyota garage wont service it, because of some stupid policy. I will have to do this on my own. So can anyone help me out how to get to the fuel filter?

I have a 1999 Vista Sedan D4. I've been driving it for a year now without changing the fuel filter- I just can't locate it. My mechanic has tried checking the fuel tank but still couldn't find it. Is it that he didn't check hard enough or it's located some place else?

I can see that most of your problems are very common.. The only thing that is giving you guys a problem is the oxygen sensor.. If u find the engine check light coming on even when the engine is running then, know that u just to replace it without doubt.. AV DONE THAT ON MOST THE D4 ENGINES AND MY CUSTOMERS HAVE NEVER COME BACK AGAIN..
