Hi, my name is ***** ***** sounds like it flooded out, if you put the gas pedal all the way to the floor, and hold it there when cranking, will it eventually start, this is the clear flood mode?

No it won't and I put more gas checked head lights turn on so don't think it is the battery I,towed it to advanced Auto do you think they can put it on computer
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I'm not at truck now however do you think fuel pump could go out that way
Toyota Mechanic: Tim Mohr, ASE MASTER TECH replied 6 months ago

when you say it wont start, does the starter turn over but it does not run, or does the starter not even turn?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
No the starter is turning however it will not run
Toyota Mechanic: Tim Mohr, ASE MASTER TECH replied 6 months ago

if it was a fuel pump problem, you can verify this by spraying carb cleaner into the intake and see if it fires briefly, if it does, then its a fuel problem,Tim

I'm going to go to truck and see if fires if so do you think there is any chance it isn't the fuel pump and something like a relay
Toyota Mechanic: Tim Mohr, ASE MASTER TECH replied 6 months ago

most likely not, relays are not affected by cold, but the fuel pump is,Tim
