Question about 1995 Toyota 4Runner
My son had something similar with his rav 4 it turned out to be the alternator which in turn damaged the voltage regulator try a recon alternator first you might get lucky.

Testimonial: "Thank Garry, it's really good of you to take the time to post. After taking it to several auto electricians, I eventually decided I had to fix it myself. I did three things. 1) Buy a new battery as I believed one cell to be damaged. 2) Check, clean and recheck all earth points in the engine bay then run some extra earth cable. 3) Bought a complete new starter motor. The strange battery voltage readings were related to the battery itself (although I agree the reg/rec or the loom close to it could be a culprit for others reading this). The post-mortem on the starter motor revealed that the failure to crank when cold was due to a sticking solenoid. The failure to crank when hot was due to a failed bearing in the starter motor that seized when the starter motor absorbed heat from the engine bay. So two different failures in the starter motor and a broken battery. She now runs like a champ."

if it has over 40,000 miles on it change the drive belt and have the alternator tested and also make sure all of the vaccum lines are on and in place

Have the cold start valve replaced, it enriches the fuel mix during cold start and check the glow plugs and see if any are bad, to test remove the wires and put test meter to ohms and one by one test each glow plug with one probe to ground and one on the tip of the glow plug see it it goes close to zero if it does not move then that glow plug is bad, replace all that you find bad.

i'm sure it's not the starter itself that is the problem, have the stater's solenoid checked...it might be stucked. It's quite a lot of work removing the starter but you can do it if you are willing enough to learn. You just need the right idea and tools to do it. Hope this will help save you bucks!
