Question about 2001 Toyota Tacoma

1 Answer

2001 tacoma v6 doesn't want to start when hot. I can start it by pressing the gas at the right time. The problem is that it cranks differently. not as hard and kind of "skips". give it a half hour or more to cool, and it turns over like it always has. Seems to be getting worse. I'm starting to have problems in the morning now as well. hard to explain, but it sounds and feels different. If it starts when hot without giving it gas, it idles low and rough for a few seconds and dies.

SOURCE: 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.

Check the timing and compression of the engine. It sounds like you either have a blown head gasket or a the timing jumped.

SOURCE: 2000 Camry Starts but dies down right away

Hello

I just worked on this problem a couple of days ago. If the motor is a 3.0 liter. The idle control valve is located at the bottom of the throttlebody assembly right below the bore for the throttle butterflies..What usually causes this valve to go bad is the mechanical part of the sensor sticks as it becomes sludged or carboned up. Manufacturer claims that the valve cannot be cleaned and should only be replaced....It's a high dollar repair to replace this sensor as your engine coolant flows through this electrical valve. The valve idles the car fast when cold, as the antifreeze gets hot the valve drops the idle down.....I have successfully cleaned several of these valves and cured the dying problems...
First remove the air filter top cover and the tubes that connect to the throttlebody. In the right throttlebody you will see a port right before the butterfly. Under the throttlebody you have a black plastic sensor with a 2 wire terminal. Remove the 2 phillps screws and pull off the electrical part of the valve. you will feel a magnetic pull while removing. Remove slowly and catch the black sealing oring, and there will be a metal washer also.. The shaft that is exposed is the mechanical control of the valve. Rotate the shaft and it should feel sticky if bad..Using a throttlebody spray cleaner spray into the small square port of the right bore, rotate shaft and spray until stickfree.....Reassemble

SOURCE: 1996 Toyota Tacoma wont start when the engine is hot and sits a few minutes

Could be a oil pressure switch not letting the ignition fire because it doesn't detect enough pressure.

2007 Toyota Tacoma v6. Hard to start about 1 hour after initial cold start, longer cranking. Problem?


Is the check engine light on? How long has it been since the engine was tuned up? A worn plug that is "hot soaked" can create a longer cranking time. Hot soaked means it may have some un-burned fuel in the cylinder since the first cold start. A weak or worn plug has a harder time getting this fuel burned out of the cylinder when more fuel is being added during a warm start.

2001 Toyota Tacoma seems "boggy"


The best thing to do is go to Autozone or a repair shop and have them read the code. There are a few things that could be going on and instead of simply trying to replace items not knowing the true issue, the check engine light can tell you the problem. In the end this will save you time and effort to find the cause.

01 Dodge Intrepid with 2.7l V6 turns over but won't start. Mechanic believes timing jumped adn advised motor is done...not worth fixing. Is this True? Can timing be reset? Scantool does not indicate...


The coils only power up during cranking check that first. If it sounds funny cranking,ie. cranks faster or slower than usual,then he's probably right about the timing belt. If it jumped the heads need to be replaced or rebuilt,both costly. Would be cheaper to put a used engine in.
