    Starts and runs good for several starts, then decides not to start until cold or sometimes several hours. Rotates but won't start.

Check for fuel pressure when starting. Fuel pumps have a check valve in them that keep fuel in the rail at the injectors. If the check valve fails, the pump has to pump fuel all of the way up to the engine. Same thing with hot no-restarts. Fuel pump.

My 97 4 by 4 Toyota Tacoma 2.7 is very hard to start it's getting gas it's getting fire I have to pat the gas vigorously but it will start finally. help!

First you will want to check and clean the throttle body and replace any and or clean sensors. The MAF sensor may need to be replaced as well. sometimes a partial fix.. Disconnect the air sensor and it may start easier. Check all vacuum hoses for splits/cracks and loose connections. Replace Throttle body gasket, check or replace cap, rotor and wires if not done in the last 2 years.

In a 1999 toyota tacoma sr5 prerunner what can

Usually the key is either worn, but usually the steering is locked. To unlock the steering, muscle the steering one direction while turning the key with the other hand. Your other concern may be related to the first. For the shifter to be able to shift. The shift lock has to be activated. The way this happens is when the ignition is on and the brake is depressed or if the shift lock override button is depressed and shifted at the same time. This button is usually under a cover at the base od the shifter if a floor shifter. Hope this helps,

2000 toyota tacoma 2.4l wont start when cold

clogged injectors you need to put cleaner in the fuel to help get dirt and grit out of them some times (every 3 months).
I am assuming you are saying it will turn over but not fire and run when cold?
