Question about 1999 Toyota 4Runner
This does not happen during the winter months. It begins in the Spring when it gets 85 degrees or hotter outside. I've taken it to the dealer three times and they sitll haven't fixed it. I'm about to turn the car over to our teenager and need this fixed first. Please help.

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 reality nothings happen, and your saying what do you need to do so you will not encounter this problem again well honestly you cant depend on life on catalytic so i suggest to do your general tune up like changing spark plug,wires,check timing,fuel filter,oil change the way they should be change so it helps the engine burn near stoichiometry because during the oxidation happening in your catalytic if your engine rich or lean or misfiring it could cause a defective catalytic converter.

yes it could be a fuel related problem, when was your last tune up, it could also be a spark issue, old or corroted spark plugs will sometimes not put out the correct amount of heat to ignite the gas correctly till it runs for a while, if the check engine light isnt lit, it will almost have to be something simular to this
