Question about 1999 Toyota Land Cruiser
1999 toyota Land cruiser will not start when outside air temp is at or below freezing. It will turn over as long as the battery will last, I haven't really pushed it that far, after a few tries I quit - no "grinding". Never sounds like it tries to start. Upon warm-up, when the temp goes above freezing (actually never tried below about 45 degrees) it starts immediately and runs really well. Today when it happened, the fix engine light came on for a short while, when it was restarted the light went out. NO loss of power etc. No missing. Starter parts replace about 18 months ago. Valve body, etc. about 6 months ago. Never has had this problem before. Has been serviced at local Toyota dealer since about 35,000 miles, is at 135,000 now. this has happened twice now with identical scenerio.
