Question about Toyota Avalon
After driving the car and parking for a while. Very intermitently my 2005 Avalon won't re-start when the starter button is pushed lst time. On second or third try it will start very roughly. You have to play with the gas almost like it had vapor lock to keep it running. Last time it did it on the second try to restart it started but was deiseling very noisy and rough almost sounde like it was running on one side of the engine.
I run Chevron mid grade with Techtron. Once the car is started initially or a restart it runs and idles smoothly with no hesitation.
Had to the dealer several times last time they kept 3 days hooked up to a portable computer each time they tried a restart. Never did it for them. Both times I had it in for this all they thought to do was clean the throttle body?
I may happen twice in a week and not again for a month. They checked the Start Button and Brake Peddle Start Switch, no problem. Scoured the internet and the NHSTA Site nothing like this. It is a shame as otherwise a beautiful riding and driving car. Yet I have thoughts of getting rid of it eventhough it has never not started or left me stranded. Please help. Thank you very much.
About the only thing that comes to mind is a faulty EGR valve that stays stuck.
