Customer Question
Hi, my 98 toyota...

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.

Mechanic's Assistant: 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?

Yes, if not i will tow to a mechanic i know.

Mechanic's Assistant: Great! What have you tried so far? Is there anything else important you think the Toyota Mechanic should know about your Toyota?

Checked the MAS, but did not replace it.

Sorry, toyota 4 runner.
Toyota Mechanic: Toyota Service, Toyota Expert replied 2 years ago

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

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Ok, i will try that.
Toyota Mechanic: Toyota Service, Toyota Expert replied 2 years ago

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