Now without my head under the engine i couldnt say but ?? firstly adjust the spark plugs to 25th ,be surprissed how many cars havent had the plugs looked at ,these quick fit garages just want your money and call a oil change a full service ,cowboys should have some authority checking up on them and and making sure that only qualified staff work their.Right after checking the plugs then if problem persists or doesnt improve then you may have to change the coil pack ,expensive but the coil pack gets made to do more work when the plug gaps are excesive causing it to get hot which damages the actual copper wire in the coil .I think this is all your problem is as i get this all the time on modern cars .

Remote starter only allows my starter to turn over twice; needs at least 3 with my key. How to adjust to have it starter run longer on remote?


I know you are looking to have the remote starter run a third time but I would say you need to look at your Fuel Pressure Regulator on the Scion. Sounds like it is not holding fuel pressure at the fuel rail and that is why it requires a third Crank

2000 chevy malibu stalls out while driving and would cut off once the car has started and when it does start the idle would be at a three i was told it was a remote sensor


ITS ACTUALLY a cold start issue There are several things that few people know about starting cars in cold weather. 1. Check your battery to make sure it is not rusted, leaking, and has a charge 2. Jump start your battery with another car, even if you believe the battery is good, this often times will still start your car. 3. If your engine is cold, and you have an older car, ensure to get your fuel lines to the engine flushed or have fuel injection service performed 4. The engine tends to warp the same way wood does during the extreme cold, do not be afraid to continue trying to warm up the engine by constant cranks with it is cold out. Your not going to hurt the car, the worse that could happen is too much fuel will enter the carborator and cause flooding in the system to occur. Wait 20 minutes if this happens and start to crank again 5. Bad spark plugs are a major reason why many cars take a very long time to start 6. Please have your spark plugs removed and exchanged for new ones. Over time, spark plugs become fowled and prevent the car from starting even thou you hear cranking!!!

The car runs well until it gets hot ,it begins to loose power,then is stuter,then shut off. the car makes a coughing -like sound when it shuts off


could be your crank angle sensor to test .turn car on then let it warn up till it cuts out then tip cold water or hose for a couple of mins on the crank angle sensor then stop water and turn car on . if it buggard it will start as when the crank angle senors breaks or is on its way out it will start then idle for a bit then splutter run **** then stall with the cold water it instantly makes it cold again so it will start straight away and repeat the same process of stallin when warm

Car starts poorly during cold mornings. The idle


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.
