Question about Cars & Trucks

The owner before me said he put electric start in it and that I fried the electric start kit and like a computer thing too
If you have distributor remove cap dry it with air gun or wipe it out with paper towels.if you have the individual coils to each cylinder water short them out.need cover ignition components with plastic when washing engine.

I know this is too late but, you should never pressure wash an engine without waterproofing all of your electrics. The pressure washer pushes water into places it isn't meant to go. You will need to find where the water has gone, and dry it out. You may be lucky and be able to save your ECU or electric start kit by drying it out properly.

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.

If the car still runs then the problem is not major but may develop into one if unchecked. The sensors in the engine may have detected problems and should be stored in its ECU. If you have a scanner have it connected to the diagnostics it should give you a clue on what to check out.

SOURCE: 2003 parking bulb toyota tacoma
OK, I just fixed mine. The unit pulls out. You have to get a screwdiriver, wrap it with a cloth so it doesn't scratch the paint, then gently wedge the entire unit out. When it pops out, you'll see the clips that keep it in place. You might think its breaking when you pull it out, but trust me this is how you do. Just be gentle with it. After you get the unit out, simply take the socket out and replace the bulb. I did it in five minutes.
