I just bought a new 2008 FJ. Well not new, but new to me. it was used, 15,000 miles but an '08. couple months after i bought it, when i would crank it somedays it would not start. Very irritating since i just bought the thing. any suggestions on what that might be? i do live in colorado and it just started happening when it got cold out! and it only happens when it has been sitting over night. usually first thing in the morning it doesnt crank over or when i do go to start it, it takes a second to start. anyone have the same problem or know whats going on? thanks :)

This transmission doesn't have transmission dipstick to check the oil, this is a 'sealed" transmission which uses WS (world standard) transmission fluid, toyota claims this fluid never needs servicing but most dealers recommend changing the fluid at 100,000 miles, I myself own an 07 and changed the fluid at 60,000. Changing the fluid requires some special equipment and procedure so it's best left to the toyota dealer on this one.
15k and they are shot is terrible. Toyo did have lots of trouble with these tires. Check this site for more info-sounds like you will have to fight like heck to get them to do anything though. Good luck' http://www.toyotanation.com/forum/showthread.php?t=304744
No it does not need a tune up in regards to spark plug wires and ignition related components at 39,000 miles, however air cleaners, and pcv valves should be replaced ever 10 - 15,000 miles. The primary Oxygen Sensor should be replaced at 60 to 80,000 mile intervals and the fuel filter done no later than 100,000 miles, hope this helps.
If the car is running good no engine problems or poor gas mileage I wouldn't worry about it. This is done as preventive maintenance. Every tune-up parts have replacement recommended periods. Ignition components, all filters and lubricants should all be replaced the most every six moths depending on how much you drive. Its all common sense if you check your oil and its black its time to change it. If your brakes are screeching same thing and if it been six month probably well over 15,000 miles since you replaced the fuel filter it'll be a good idea to change it.
Are you sure this is a US spec car or was it a canadian car that the dash is in km instead of miles. Another posibility is that the instrument cluster has been replaced with one out of another car. Newer clusters must be replaced with new units and programed for that particular vehicle. Hope this helps.
