My 98 toyota sat up little while, and now the motor turns

Customer Question

Hi, my 98 toyota sat up for a little while, and now the motor turns over, but will not start. I replaced the fuel filter, but the same. Even before that it was running rougher each time i drove it. Plugs have also been changed.
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Toyota. The Toyota Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: Yes, if not i will tow to a mechanic i know.
JA: Great! What have you tried so far? Is there anything else important you think the Toyota Mechanic should know about your Toyota?
Customer: Checked the MAS, but did not replace it.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Toyota Mechanic about your situation and connect you two.

limited model (Avalon/Camry/Tacoma), etc?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Sorry, toyota 4 runner.
Expert:  Toyota Service replied 1 year ago.

The first thing to do is lift the hood and see if the 15 amp EFI fuse is blown.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ok, i will try that.
Expert:  Toyota Service replied 1 year ago.

After that, if the fuse is OK, see if there are any air leaks between the MAS and the throttle body.
