2003 toyota sienna wont start sometimes But does turn over. Its not getting gas. After pumping pedal its starts


its not getting gas, is that a guess? or the results of a real test.
as per FSM book.?
the only test that proves not getting gas, is all spark plugs out and all are white and dry. (NOT GETTING GAS to the combustion chambers)
i think its flooding (sparks wet)
and all cars clear floods, with wide open throttle cranking, (A feature)
this magic feature, cuts all fuel cranking, to clear said flood.
(oper, guide covers this)

if this works,
ever consider a full tuneup? this decade? with filters?
if tuned up, then scan it to see if there are DTC errors cranking?
check for spark , during failures. ?
check for flooding? spark good,!
there are many causes of flooding, (spark good, tuned up)
  • too high fuel pressure
  • injectors leaking
  • fuel regulator bad.
  • no air supply starting, bad IAC STUCK CLOSED,
Try starting with 5% throttle ,creating a good human made, IAC, (fresh air)
each line has tests we do,, if you dont have tools, all this is just
water under the bridge.

do you want guessing (unsaid)
here:
  1. never tuned up.
  2. too high fuel pressure and flooding.
  3. and many more. i just rolled dice 2 times.

Fluids out when you try to start


double posted, and fluids? you mean FLOODS.
see previous post,
there are other ways to flood any motor.
one other is (iSC /IAC devices are stuck closed) gummed up.
this cause no starting air, no air means flooding.
I cant see your car, and see if starting with 10% throttle solves the flood, but you can.
also WOT cranking, cuts all fueling and can not flood and will start any flooded engine.
but if this still floods,now, that is bad injectors. leaking.
WOT cuts injection pulses dead, and no fuel flows, cranking.
knowing these facts on EFI makes finding causes easy.

Got stuck in snow storm left over night and engine compartment filled with snow tryed starting didnt start towed to heated garage for night and still wont start it smells like fuel in air box might be...


It probably is flooded from trying to start it.Originally the the air tube probably was packed with snow so the engine wasn't drawing air in. If you turn the key on and push the gas pedal to the floor this should activate what is called clear flood mode.If it will not still start would suggest removing all the sparkplugs and cleaning or replacing them also make sure that the air induction tube is clear and dry.

I have an 04 rx8 and i have left it parked for 2 days 3 times now. when i go try to start it it will not start i have flooded to engine and now recharged the battery what can i do to get it started


If you flooded the engine, first try to open the throttle all the way and try to start, this is letting in more air. if it wont start replace the spark plugs, they are gas fouled
