Question about 2000 Toyota 4Runner
I would love some help. I am at wits end and wallets end here! my 4runner has starting issues = I will fill up at a gas station or come out of the grocery store and it takes three or four times to start my car. It starts, but immediately dies. Takes several times for it to fire up. I have a great battery, had it checked, just got fuel system cleaned/ flushed, and engine light is on. I had it read and about 5 things come up that it COULD be. I don't have the money to play 20 questions with my car!
Without seeing the car I won't know this for certain, neither will anyone else here.
Try checking the MAF sensor. If you have a diagnostic tool, check the resistance at low throttle and high throttle. You are looking for a consistant change in resistance over the angle of the throttle. If it doesn't seem consistant, then this might indicate a fault with it.

have you fixed this problem? if not ,here we go ,hj6ocruiser had 4lt a,2h engine if you have a 4.2 ltr engine in yours it will be ,a 1hz motor and a bugger of a job to fit(i have only done one and even though i have been asked i wont do another) the point being ,with out modification the 2 glow systems are not compat able the early 2h had 11 volt glow plugs then they went to 6 volt with a largeglowplug in the manifold (manifold heater) the 2h did chnge to the superglow system but not untill 1995 (in australia anyway) if you did not change the timer you will find you burn out glow plug s pretti regularly. if you brought it to me ,iwould remove,check and re place (where necessary)all the glow plugs and the manifold heater .then run an independant 12 volt wire, after disconecting the existing feed to the manifold probe, the new wire runs through an
independant switch fitted on the dash board to the manifoldheater.there
is no doubt in my mind that this is the soplution to your problem----- the quick fix is asquirt of aerostart into the air cleaner as you co to turn her over or else loosen the wingnut on top of the air cleaner a teaspoon or so of petrol at wingnut and fire her up, aerostartis best ,if you can let me know how you get on i`d appreciate it youdoit

Check for fuel pressure when starting. Fuel pumps have a check valve in them that keep fuel in the rail at the injectors. If the check valve fails, the pump has to pump fuel all of the way up to the engine. Same thing with hot no-restarts. Fuel pump.

If the immobiliser is not an issue the next time it happens remove the starter relay and swap with any other relay except fuel pump and ignition.Some times just pulling out and replacing works as the contacts on the relay do not have a good clean contact and provide too much resistance.Sure sounds like a relay begining to fail.good luck

in your carburetor there is a priming passage. look in there with the air cleaner out and pump the butterfly it should squirt gas. if it doesn't then you need to open the top part of the carb and clean the hole with a hair clip. if this is not the problem it will be the choke but I'm 70 percent that this is the problem.
