Question about 1997 Toyota Tacoma

Toyota Tacoma won't start Checked fuel pump no power help! MAF?

I have a Toyota Tacoma I just bought from a guy cause it died and wouldn't start. All I know is he was driving it in the rain and hit a big puddle (a month ago) and it died. It has not started since. I'm thinking it is the maf sensor but it it very expensive to just replace and hope it fixes the starting problem. Is there any way to check the maf sensor with a voltmeter? Or jumper bypass it? I've checked all relays and have manualy powered the fuel pump to get gas to the engine and still no start. I got and replaced the circuit opening relay still nothing. Please help!!

Are you sure that no water got into the tank? Or into the catalytic converter? I have had alot of cars do this cause I off road all the time. Usually what happens is your intake sucks air into the throttle body and from there your are done tell you drain the oil, change tranny fluid and drain the gas or put a water absorber it in.

I have a 95 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 and It will not start without putting some fuel into the throttle body. Once started it will run. But when you let it stand and cool off it won t start again. I have replaced...


The way you describe this problem the cause seems to be in the fuel system losing pressure. But even then, if you crank long enough it should start. Check your fuel pressure. It may be useful to check your fuel filter.

Toyota Tacoma fuel problem


Check the following:
- Listen to the fuel pump noise under the fuel tank.
- Starter signal.
- EFI relay, under the hood fuse and relay box.
- Fuel pump operation and pressure.
- Regulating valve.
- Circuit Opening Relay (COR) under the dash.
- Check for open in harness and connector between circuit opening relay and fuel pump, and fuel pump and body ground

No power at fuel pump


Sounds frustrating. Presumably you've also checked the fuse panel for blown fuses? Check to be sure you're at least getting power to the fuse, that will at least narrow down a problem before the fuse or after.

2003 toyota tacoma 2.7L will start but not run,


Start but won't run ??
Have you checked to see if you are loosing spark to the plugs or fuel to the injectors ? Have you checked the fuel pressure at the injectors ?
I would start with that and then proceed.

Hello. My 1997 Chevy Tahoe refuses to start. The problems began with a bad fuel pump. I changed. It worked. The fuel pump died again. I changed it again and it has been working. I parked it for two weeks....


Now you have a good battery & a starter that turns over the motor

Have you cycled the key on & off with a fuel pressure gauge on the
fuel rail?

Do you have a fuel filter that isn't over 3 or 4 years old?

Have you checked for spark while cranking ? Use an old plug on the wires,
if you have ignition wires,don't ground the wire without resistance

If you removed the ducting & MAF Sensor it won't start

Tell us what you checked & exactly how that was done.

Sometimes the 2003 Toyota Tacoma pickup won't start. After turning the ignition key to start position and off position many times it starts. What is causing it and how do I fix it.


replace the fuel pump or check the relay and power going to the fuel pump first. if its getting voltage it might be bleeding the pressure back to the tank

Bad stumble on acceleration pops through t- body.


Sounds like the fuel pressure regulator. Could also be that the timing jumped. But I'm leaning towards the pressure regulator. Hope that I could help. Best wishes.

1999 toyota tacoma Sr5 won't start


Check for fuel pressure when starting. Fuel pumps have a check valve in them that keep fuel in the rail at the injectors. If the check valve fails, the pump has to pump fuel all of the way up to the engine. Same thing with hot no-restarts. Fuel pump.
