Oh and by the way, it has never actually died on me or had trouble starting...but sometimes takes several seconds to go again!

I had a similar situation. It was the whole distributor going bad. The check engine light never came on. For whatever reason, an after market will not work. It has to be a Toyota part or it simply will not work. I have had this problem before on other Toyota Tacoma truck I have owned. Good luck, hope this helps!

For those who have thrown good money after bad to fix this problem. I had the same problem and a mechanic buddy of mine gave me the magic bullett and it diddnt cost 1 cent! You need to reset the onboard computer to factory settings. Disconnecting the (-) on the battery isnt enough. Take the (-) loose and touch it to the (+) on the battery for 30 sec to one min. Reconnect the battery and take it for a drive. It solved my problem and it has not had a problem in 2 months now.

What you are suggesting about touching the neg. cable to + on the battery is a recipe for disaster. You can short out the entire vehicle electrical system, or produce a spark that will blow the battery up in your face.
Holding the connection for 30 sec. would be the equivalent of arc welding for that period of time, and the smoke coming out of various components would just re-enforce the old theory.........Electrical stuff runs on smoke, and when you let the smoke out, they don't work anymore!
Be careful out there.

I've been troubleshooting this truck and can't seem to find the problem. Dealer has replaced the fuel pump and we just replaced the PCM and still nothing. I need a little help diagnosing. I took out a plug and don't get a spark when turning it over. I am getting gas up to the engine compartment but no way of knowing if injecting. Is there any way to check the electrical of the EFI circuits with a volt/ohm meter? Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks.

P0366 : The PCM sees that there is excessive deviation between the crankshaft sensor and the camshaft sensor .
Check the timing with a timing light with the diagnostic plug jumped at T1 and E1, and if the timing is between 7 and 18degrees then you have a lose timing chain .
This code is telling you the PCM does not like the setting of the ignition ,so distributor or timing chain issue .
To be 100% you will need a scope to check the deviation of the crank and cam sensor.
If all checks out good then you may have a bad PCM.?
