Could be the starter contacts wearing out in the starter solenoid,also most people dont realize that v6 Tacos have also what is called a hard starting problem and only for the 2003-2004 Tacos did toyota come up with a Technical service bulletin to fix this problem,My 2004 had this problem and had 2 TSBs done to finally resolve this issue.Check into other Toyota websites CustomTacos.com and TTora.com for starting problems and fixs it will help you track down the problem.
#21 of 88 Loss of power while turning

I just purchased a 2004 Tacoma double cab 4x4. My problem is I lose power when I make a turn, it's seems the sharper I turn the worse it gets. Once I complete the turn the power comes back, It run great other than that. Can anybody tell me where to start.
#22 of 88 Broken camshaft bolt

1997 tacoma 2.7L. The bolt and pin that holds the chain sprocket on to the camshaft has broken twice. Is there any history on this. Seems to be a stretch bolt and hardened pin.
#23 of 88 Oil capacities in truck engines
Feb 04, 2007 (8:01 pm)
Anyone noticed that the 4.0 V-6 calls for less oil than the 2.7 I-4, even though it's a full 1.3 liters larger. Could this compromise durability in the V-6? I know that on the older Toyota trucks, the I-4s always lasted longer.What gives? Comments?

Can't go by displacement alone to determine oil needs. You also have to see how the engine uses the oil - it may be providing lube and/or cooling for other components in the 2.7.
Heck, if it was just displacement, my 5.9L Cummins diesel shouldn't need 13 quarts when the 6.1L Hemi uses about half as much (7 quarts).
#25 of 88 Shady Repair Guy?
Feb 07, 2007 (6:14 pm)
I have a 2003 Tacoma 4x4 4dr. All of a sudden the throttle pedal was not very responsive and the engine light came on. I had to really press down on it to get the car to respond. I immediately brought it to the repair shop.
They said they had to "remove excessive dirt and carbon from the throttle body". They said it seems to have fixed it, but if the engine light comes on again - they will have to "replace throttle actuator control unit for $1,335". And that I should be using high octane gas.
That doesn't sound right to me. Am I being unnecessarily suspicious?

#27 of 88 cylinder 2 misfire
Feb 22, 2007 (10:14 pm)
I have a 96 tacoma V6. The check engine light just came on. I went to a car parts store and they told me it was a cylinder 2 misfire. I am going to change the spark plug but I don't have a manual so I don't know which is cylinder 2. Any help would be great. Thanks

It doesn't turn over or it doesn't fire up? These are two different things.
