Have Toyota Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. After it started, and drove a couple miles, was the check engine light illuminated at the instrument panel?
The system sends that call stuff via a server program. But the call is available if you want it. There would be an additional charge, yes.
Since the check engine light is not on whilst you are driving, that reduces a lot of possibilities. If you had any kind of electrical/sensor problem, the light would come on and stay on. Without the light being on, electronic diagnosis is not going to help here.
Based on what you are saying, if this vehicle was in my shop, I would be looking for a fuel pressure issue before anything else. If you have no check engine light on, you should have spark. I suspect you have a fuel pump issue. This can be tested easily, parts do not need to be installed to determine if the fuel pump is producing the required pressure.
