    Cold start misfire on my 2F

    I've got an issue where once the truck is first started in the morning or becomes cool, it will "pop" once as a misfire on the first real tip in of the throttle. -It wont do it more than once as long as I'm driving in that session. It the engine undergoes a hot restart, it will not pop. It...

    80 Series Fluid change & inspection priorities. Where to start ?

    So I guess this is where I come clean as to just how much of a novice I am at this but so be it. After falling into a "you won't believe it deal" on a 93 80 series last year that was & is running and sounding great I decided before starting to dump non required preventative and accessory...

    87 FJ60 starter issues?

    So I was warming up the wagon this AM, with the choke about 3/4 and it up and died after about 4 minutes. I restarted the usual way (3 pumps on the gas and turn the key) and moved it about 8 feet to put the windshield in the sun to help with the frost. It died again. I restarted and it ran...

    Odd intermittent clicking sound at start up

    Here's the situation: only does it when it's cold/er, it's not the cat shields, it sounds like a rotational clicking that speeds up when I'm driving. Eventually it goes away after the car is fully warmed up. I checked the fan and it's not making contact with anything. Could it be the starter...

    LX450 EXTREMELY hard start or no start when cold or wet.

    My wife's 97 LX450 is experiencing something weird, when it's either wet outside or very cold, the truck will *BARELY* start, or sometimes fails to start at all. It'll turn over and over and over and over and if she's lucky, after 5-6 tries it'll catch and run very rough for a few seconds...

    My Truck Tried to Start Itself - Again!

    Some of you will no doubt remember the first time this happened when I was putting in a stereo three years ago, and then reconnected the battery ground cable, and the truck STARTED and ran in my garage until the shock wore off and I pulled the coil wire. Never figured that one out, but this...

    2 keys to get in and Start my 100

    New to the site, just bought my first LC. 2001 249K. I have one key that opens the doors but does not turn the ignition. The second key doesn't open the doors but will start the engine. I am thinking that the ignition was replaced and that is the reason for the separate keys. Does anyone have...

    Car cranks but doesn't start

    Here are symptoms: 1. Car cranks but doesn't actually start 2. I've tried jumping but that doesn't help either 3. Car was running and I saw battery voltage dropping and then car stopped. Generally I would look for missing spark but because of #3 I'm assuming I need a new alternator. Is that...

    2001 didn't start tonight

    I took my wife out to dinner and upon getting in car to leave, the LC wouldn't start. Would crank and crank but would not start. I wondered if it were the key and got a ride home to get the spare key. Used the fob to unlock the doors and tried to start. Cranked and cranked but never started...

    2F Seized today while starting...

    A couple weeks ago I bought an FJ60 from a friend of mine who had just changed the head gasket on the 2F (207k miles). It was running just fine, I was working on getting it to pass CA smog (replaced cat this morning). It's had a slow oil leak at the plug, but I checked it before driving, it was...
