#37 of 86 stalls when blower and signal are run in conjunction
Oct 22, 2008 (9:57 am)
I have an 02 tacoma 3.4 V-6. It runs great. Except when you turn the right turn signal on while the blower motor is running in any speed. Ive traced all the wiring diagrams out and can not find any relation to all of this concerning why it would stall out. I eliminated the signals out of the circuit by unplugging them, now it stalls when headlights are on with blower on. so I unplug lights, the next weakest link is the blower motor. So I try unplugging it or the resistor, and the truck wont start at all.
In the beginning of diagnosis, I found that a ground wire on the right turn signal will turn to power when the blower motor is turned on, (this is when the truck stalls also). So I know I have a ground shorted to hot. The only thing I have left in the complete circuit is the ECM, that is the only place that the blower circuit and other circuits could possibly be related to eachother. Help me Please.

Hello, I know that in the state of georgia we have what is called a lemon law where as if a new vehicle has a serious problem that the dealer cannot or will not be able to repair then you can return the vehicle to the dealer for a full refund. you might want to check into your states law concerning this issue.
#39 of 86 STARTING AND IDLING ISSUES
Dec 07, 2008 (5:02 pm)
I have 2003 Tacoma xtra cab 4x4 5spd manual supercharged with 7th injector, headers, and cold air intake(injen) with 45k mi with starting issues. When ever I don't start the truck for two days or more, when it is cold in the mornings, or when ever it feels like it, it wont start. It'll take 2-3 tries to start and when it does the check engine light comes on and it'll make clicking sound in the throttle body area. After that it'll start good with the check engine light on and on the 4th start the check engine light turns off. It did this before (when it had warranty) I had the mods installed on a couple of times but the check engine light never came on. A couple of months back I took the truck to the dealer with the light on ( and of course the light turned off when their tech started the truck) and could not find anything wrong but did say that it might be the cold air intake with the supercharger, so I installed the stock intake and still did the same thing. And also the rpms drop to about 500 or below when ever I turn on the headlights and drop even more when I step on the brakes(especially at a stop light). I've changed the battery (replaced it with an OPTIMA YELLOW TOP) to see if that would help, fuel filter, spark plugs, spark plug wires and coils, starter. It does this even with a full tank of gas and I have always used 91 oct on it. CAN ANYBODY PLEASE HELP ME WITH ANY SOLUTIONS.
#40 of 86 1995 Toyota Tacoma 4 cyl. won't start.
Dec 23, 2008 (6:28 pm)
I have a 1995 Toyota Pickup 4cyl. that won't start after its hot and been running for awhile. It starts after it sits for 5-10 minutes. It has 235,000 miles and seems strong when its running. It burns clean and passes smog checks. I recently replaced the fuel filter and put in fresh spark plugs and the problem still persists. Anyone with ideas to cure this frustrating problem ?
#41 of 86 96 Tacoma Hot Start Problem
Mar 29, 2009 (4:24 pm)
I've heard of a few other people who were having this problem but I have not seen a solution: My 96, 4 cylinder Tacoma often won't start when the engine AND weather are hot. No problem all winter but as soon as the temp reaches 60 or so and after the engine is nice and hot it won't turn over after sitting for 10-30 minutes. After another 10 minutes or so I can eventually get it to start but it's a big pain. 255,000 miles and it's still running pretty nice otherwise, though...

Nobody has replied on this forum and I have not figured it out yet. Someone in a parking lot told me that they had a similar problem with a Chevy and it was a heat sensor in the fuel pump (or that controlled the fuel pump.) He listened when I tried to start it and said the fuel pump was not going on so he thought I had the same problem. I am telling my mechanic about that next time I take it to j=him.
Of course I can never get it to happen at the garage...

I'm not sure if my '95 Tacoma 4 cyl. is having exactly the same problem as yours.
On a warm or hot day, after it has been driven for a while, it often won't start again after it has been parked for a while. This is not an issue in cool weather.
It does "turn over" (the starter is running) but the engine does not catch and start. It's hard to say for sure, but it seems like if I flood it a bit while cranking it over, it will SOMETIMES catch and start. So maybe it is a problem related to heat and the fuel pump.
I, too, have had it at the mechanic with no success. Open to suggestions.

I have a 1998 Toyota Taco that intermittently sputters while driving. It doesn't happen at any particular speed or in any weather conditions but seems to be most prevelant when I am accelerating after changing gears or accelerating in 5th at highway speeds. New Wires and Plugs are the most recent change and I'm wondering if I have the plugs gapped correctly. Anyone know what the proper Gap should be? With 121K on the motor and some striking visual enhancements she's a fine looking and running ride overall. People give me grief for haulin' my Harley in the back when me and the Ol' Gal go on trips but they can't beat the gas mileage even with the A/C on in the heat of South Mississippi. Gimme your best guess... Thanks!

Sounds like a leaky fuel injector. Your engine gets flooded with fuel after you run it for awhile and then it doesn't statrt. When the the excess fuel evaporates after it sits longer it starts up. Have your mechanic check the injectors. Good luck.
