I had the same problem. It was the distributer, but you have to purchase a Toyota distributer not an aftermarket. That should take care of your problem. I went thru changing all kinds of parts before I finally figured it out. It has to be a Toyota part!!! It will miss or not run at all. Good Luck!!!

I am having the exact same problem. Same codes and everything. Believe it or not I was told the timing chain is stretched and is putting the crank and cams out of phase....I know sounds like bull, but I'm looking for a second opinion...have you tried anything else withany luck?

Just had the same problem. Rt sig and blower on stalls truck. I have a 99 tacoma. Found that with the blower on only I had 4V at ground of the front right turn sig. When I disconnected the blower, thus taking out the resistors and blower switch the problem would then occur with the rt signal even with the blower switch off. Found that with the blower sw off (blower hooked up) there is a path to ground via the resistor bank so the rt sig would work with the blower off. Anyway I found a broked ground located behind the fuel vapor box. There are 2 ground wires comming out of the harness that goes thru the firewall on the drivers side. Since they are protected by the black box I think some small (mouse) broke one of the wires. I fixed the ground and the problem went away. On my tacoma, starting at the front drivers side, Battery, fuse box, Vapor box. Hope this helps you.

97 Toyota Tacoma Pickup, 2.4, Won't start when hot. Starts easily when cool.
Driving around town in 95 degree day, after the engine is stopped for 5 minutes. Won't start, engine cranks and after 5 or 6 tries the engine will start.
Disconnected the Air Filter Box Sensor and the engine started right up even though it was very hot. Drove around town, stop and go traffic and turned the engine off after 5 minutes off the engine started right up.
A new Air filter temp sensor should cost $65.00 and I expect that will solve my problem.
Thanks - Covi

Greetings all knowing mechanics,
Background info: 2000 Toyota Tacoma, manual transmission, 4x4, single cab with canopy, silver nicknamed The Cricket.
Car won't start without a jump. Problem started a year ago. I thought the alternator was bad but it and the battery checked out at the shop I bought the battery at two years ago. They gave it a full charge and then no problem for a long time. Then it has the same problem. Fuses were good and then I noticed an ac adapter in the cigarette lighter was warm in the morning. Took that out and then it was fine for a few months. Now I notice that it starts fine if the engine is warm but if I turn it off for more than five minutes then it won't start.
At present I turn the ignition and it might start to turn over but always it immediately; if not from the get-go, reverts to rapid clicking. I've recharged the battery but after many highway miles and a day later the problem is still there.
That's all the pertinent info I can think of. Let me know if I left anything out. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I have a older Toyota truck have similar problem. Is the starter turning?
If just a click, click, It was a bad solenoid in starter. after changed starter it starts fine. You mentioned " It might start to turn over but always it immediately WHAT?? I am guessing In here, but, if engine shut off as soon as it starts, when you relax the key switch, then looking the problem in your key switch. Good luck !!
