Question about 1997 Toyota Tacoma
1996 tacoma pickup 4 cylinder, 5 speed.
when the engine gets warm and you stop somewhere for a few minutes the engine will not crank, just turns over and over.Starts great when cold and runs great allways.Toyota mechanic checked fuel pressure and said it was fine. He is thinking maybe crank sensor, or module in the distributor
Anybody got any ideas same problem here. my 97 tacoma 3.4l is very hard starting after running for a while. it starts eventually but cranks forever. first i thought it was vapor locking so i replaced the radiator and the fan clutch. but problem is still here. maybe its a sensor? i am lost at this point. my dad thinks it is the crank position sensor. any suggestions need some help here

Could be a oil pressure switch not letting the ignition fire because it doesn't detect enough pressure.
