This had nothing to do with the key. Check your air filter, if it is dirty replace it, and replace the fuel filter to start. let me know I can help.

    Did the dealership replace the computer? If so, that is likely the cause of your issue due to the auto-tuning/optimization data being cleared. Clean it up and drive it a will re-optimize.

2001 Toyota Sequoia I lost thing all keys and I'm trying to hotwire I got it turning over but it won't start

If you had a chip in key you have an immobilizer. You're probably locked out for security reasons. Flatbed it to a dealer.

Best plan is to buy a new key. Dealer can supply this if you show VIN and proof of ownership. Pricey, but still the best option, IMHO.

The ignition key in 2002 Toyota Sequoia won't turn. Do I need a new lock cylinder or should I try other things first?

This is caused by the accumulation of metal shavings in the ignition switch cylinder from year's of internal wear. The cylinder can be removed and cleaned, oftentimes resolving the sticking issue. It requires some removal of panels and dismantling of components, which can be intimidating if inexperienced. A dealer will definitely only put in a new unit, as no one cleans parts anymore. Check YouTube under 'cleaning of ignition switches/cylinders' and you'll see a step by step procedure for the process. This can help you decide whether you want to tackle the job yourself.

My ignition key won't turn.

The key may be warn out which makes the ignition not recognize the key or the steering wheel lock is stopping it so try jiggling the steering wheel while trying to turn the key.
