Next time do this:
before starting press down fully on your gas pedal, about one or two seconds, then release.
now start your engine.
you're welcome.
what this does has something to do about the autochoke or something, my mechanic tells me. anyway, it works for my carbed 1999 corolla.

I was driving my Toyota 4runner and noticed steam coming out from under hood. I shut engine off. After engine cooled off, it won't start so I can put water in it?

Well, you over heated it if you saw steam coming out. If you warped the head then you may be sucking air or throwing water into the pistons causing a no start. 1st is to make sure you are NOT putting water into the bottle or radiator. You need to be using coolant (Anti-freeze) 2nd, check to make sure you're getting gas 3rd make sure you're getting spark. If all is good then I would remove the spark plugs, and let them dry off because they're probably loaded with gas. Cut the fuel pump from pumping gas into the cylinders by either pressing 1/2 way down or all the way down on the gas pedal. Crank engine over 5 or 6 times to blow the gas out of the cylinders. Replace the dried off plugs or put new ones in. Turn key to on position count to 5 and start car. if that doesn't work try a 1 second squirt of starting fluid into the breather. If it starts great, if not then you probably need to look at the cam or crank sensor.

Toyota lucida hard to start most times. occasionaly ok. 2.2 diesel. everything seems to work as should

in cold weather diesel gels up and sometimes causes a no start issue..a cetane fuel additive helps with this issue. if temps go below 20 degrees, add a quart per tankful of cetane to the fuel to help start on cold mornings. also diesels require more amperage to crank than gas engines do..thus a stronger battery is needed..

98 toyota cranks but will not start

Has the timing belt ever been replaced? Does it crank over kind of weird sounding compared to how it was before this? You could put some gas down the throttle body, if it tries to start you may have problem with the fuel pump. Leave the air intake hose off going to the throttle body while you are cranking it over is it trying to spray the gas back out of the throttle body? If it does the cam timing is off and belt will need to be replaced. Please rate my answer so I get points for it.

Cold start cranking problems 1987 toyota truck wont hardley crank when cold then fires fine after gets crunk till next morning

My 1987 truck I use to have had a choke and it would stick open some times. When you get in the vehicle, you have to press the gas pedal to the floor once to set the choke and add enough fuel to start the vehicle. I assume your vehicle has a carburetor and would suggest the following:

When your engine is cold, take off the air cleaner cover and base and look the butterfly valves. They are fist valve on the top of the carb air inlet. Go and step on the gas pedal once. Observe if the valves move to the almost closed position or not. If they don
