Trouble starting my 2002 toyota echo I turn the key, hear the i believe fuel pump come on but then nothing. Sometimes it fires right but when i turn it off after running it won't restart


When it doesn't start after shutting it off can you still hear the fuel pump come on? The best way to tell is to take the gas cap off and put your ear next to the filler neck while someone turns the key to the on position. If you don't hear it, it may be time for a new one.

Dear dsmalley427,
I think it sounds like a fuel injection problem. You get fuel for a while until the injector backs up and then all of a sudden NO FUEL. The engine quits and the pressure drops and flow returns enough for you to restart. If I were you I would get to a good mechanic and check the fuel injectors.
OR--try adding a fuel additive that would clean the injectors.--Signed jwr

83 hood match


Toyota Cressida's 1981 - 1984 body style was the same. The 81 thru 84 was the 2nd generation. A likely match !
