Also when stopped at light it stumbles and tries to stall. No codes come up. This morning started up right away but went to start it an hour later it took 3 cranks to start. Sometimes if I push gas pedal about a quarter down it starts sooner. Had to mechanic twice and they said it wouldn't repeat problem. Two days after picking up it does same thing. They changed fuel pump last year. TPS and iac was changed last week. Help

My car problem started 3 days ago, it started with my Toyota security light blinking red, then a key like symbol on ...
First off, have the vehicles computer scanned for any pending trouble codes that may point you in the right direction, especially if the check engine light is on or has been on. If no light ever on, the computer can still store a soft code that will not turn light on but yet store a code in it's history.If the engine cranks over and over in the morning you may have a possible fuel pump issue and the fuel pressure is draining back into the tank overnight. This will cause an extended crank in the morning till the fuel pressure builds up enough to start the engine. You can turn the key on and off a couple of times without starting in the morning to see if this helps. Doing this primes the fuel pump thus supplying pressure quicker.If this seems to correct the problem, you may be in need of a fuel pump in the near future.
Check the battery cables. I had the same issues with my 96 tacoma, The battery cable connection at the battery can be cranked down but still be loose. Hard to explain, doesn't make sense, but just check it out.
a vehicles crank shaft sensor sends a signal to computer, as to tell what revolution the crank is on. you may not get a check engine light. check injectors for leaking in to cylinders, it can cause an excess amount of fuel in cylinder. this may be causeing the no starts and flooding smell. if it starts good warm then check the injectors for leaking. good-luck!! you may also have a bad coolant tempurature sensor. symtoms of a bad cts are--poor cold idle, stalling, slow idle speed, cold hesitation or stumble, poor fuel milage. ( will also ****** timing). its hard to say with out being there, so check out above. good- luck!!
here are some signs of a bad fuel pressure regulator: the vehicle runs rough, the engine will not start(usually in morning) MANY TIMES ENGINE STARTS BUT STALLS SHORTLY AFTER STARTING. a bad regulator can result in fouled spark plus, and fuel milage will decrease noticeably. the only cure is to replace regulator. what makes it fail usually it gets a tear in the diafram and it cant maintain fuel pressure. hope this helps toolman,
Sounds like a cold start valve (which is actually an additional injector in the intake to assist in cold starting) If you can get it to your local prts store while the light is on they will read the codes for free and tell you what the car thinks is amiss.
ive seen fault crank positon sensor cause this also clogged injectors cause this ,for sake of saving money try some chevron techron injecttor cleaner but if u end up having take this car in i would go to the dealer cause all places charge the same 4 labor n lot small shops cause more damage than they fix
