well start with the basics
Spark wires
spark plugs
fuel filter
fuel pressure before and after fuel injectors
engine timing
exhaust flow (clogged Catalytic converter or muffler)

This is your problem. A 22re without a check engine light on is bad news.

But in all seriousness check your timing. My last 22re did all sorts of goofy stuff. Turns out timing was WAY off.

The spark plugs . Were they pregaped or did you gap them ?
x2 check the timing
? o2 sensor , is there one . That will tell the computer its is running rich , lean .
cap or rotor , are they on right . not broken
You put spark plug wires on . Are they put on , in the fireing order . Are they all the way on , dis cap and spark plug .

Did they give you the right parts at the store , for that motor ?

22re's are junk

There, I did it, you happy firehawk jay?

Check the ignition module ignitor thingy, mine was shit and the truck idled like shit but ran ok under load.

Timing could be off, timing guides and timing chain replaced recently?

My 22re had all loads of issues, then it blowed up, rebuilt it, new ignition thingy, new pistons, rings, bearings, cam, etc. ran decent after that, until it died on the way home for the new owner, fucking peices of shit.

I have heard this story about a million times.

The 3 22r/re's I had I only replaced a radiator and a thermostat.

You suck

Only car/truck I've ever had major/multiple problems with that weren't self inflicted.

I can't answer that for you. I haven't fucked with one of those peices of shit in 8 years.

If you have a haynes manual it should outline how to trouble shoot it, I will look to see if I still have mine, but its much more likely that I don't/
