Question about 1994 Toyota Pickup
Think I used too much "easy start"
Hya Ellie, OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOpppppppppppppppppSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!
You say you think too much Easy Start? Is the engine running? or did it Fire make a huge Knocking noise like someone hitting the inside of a Big Bell with a mallett? then stop and now will not start or turn over?
O.K. Let's give you the worst scenario, Too much Ether (Easy Start) will boost the compression so much you can bend the connecting rods (The things that have pistons one end and connect to the crankshaft the other) So when you try to start afterwards because the pistons don't line up correctly timing is out and very low compression all add up to zip nothing.
Hopefully you are going down this route, you turn the key, engine doesn't move or tries to but stops, this is called dieselling, too much fuel in one or more cylinders. You may wait a while and gingerly try to crank again,No luck? loosen the glow plugs to let the pressure out. If this is the case why not take all the heater plugs out and have them tested? as this was possibly the reason you reached for the Sniffing Salts? (Easy Start)
Your'e Not out of the woods yet! although if Dieselled there may still be one or more bent connecting rods so if it starts and is very lumpy, irratic or engine shakes violently TURN OFF as you may throw a leg out the Bed (Snap a Rod through the crankcase.) I'm sorry to Bear bad tidings, just trying to save any more damage.

Welcome to FIxYa.com
Cranks but no start or tries to start hot? Check ignition module when hot the board expands and cold contracts.
