1999 toyota Land cruiser will not start when below freezing

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.

91 land cruiser runs great in cooler temperatures but when outside temp over 88 deg, engine gets sluggish and runs hot/pings; coolant is fine, no leaks, new tune-up, no computer codes, temp gauge fine, no...

If you're finding it difficult to service/repair your car, get one of those online manuals. You'll not have to wait for others to answer, or rely on mechanics and all. Plus i know a website that sells very cheap but very very good manuals online, without expiry i.e. for lifetime.

Where oil plug drain on 99 land cruiser

Always look for an oil drain plug on the bottom of the oil pan, below the engine block.

Don't worry, the transmission pan doesn't have an oil drain plug.

It is usually a hex, removable with a wrench.

Does my 1997 toyota land cruiser have a heater core?

Check with Toyota Parts. I'm sure there is one, but it is unavailable at a retail parts store. Heater cores are pretty much as necessary as the four tires on the outside are. My advice would be to remove the core and check the hose clamps or connections for other issues. You want to be sure that the leak is in the core and not in one of the hose connections. I think that is odd that your driver side floor is wet and not the passenger side. Open the hood and look for coolant hoses attached to the firewall (the sheet metal between your dash and the motor) and see if they are on the driver side or the passenger side.

I think you are low on refrigerant in the system, you may have a leak, you will need to hook up pressure guages to determine the exact cause.
