Toyota Repair/Toyota t100


96 Toyota t100, 3.4, 4x4. 342Kmi.
Recent repairs: timing belt, water pump, tps sensor.

Problems:  the truck runs well with cool weather, but it loses power at hot weather-- the engine sounds like the airway is being blocked and it cannot breathe.

hello, does the check engine light turn on while driving?
If this happened after the timing belt was replaced check the basic timing, should be about 8 degrees advanced at idle, if it's off re check the timing belt marks.
This could also be caused by a partially clogged catalytic converter.
