RAV4 Cruiser: My 2009 Rav 4 cruiser is having trouble starting

Customer Question

My 2009 Rav 4 cruiser is having trouble starting especially when engine is hot
you need to just flick the kjey foir a few seconds only and let go severa times
in order to get it to start.If you crank motor continuously it will not start at all whe hot.
If motor is cold you dont seem to have as much trouble.
Some people have told me to see if the crank angle sensor is playing
up. Could this be the problem
