Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is a system automated prompt , not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

what numbers did you get when you checked fuel pressure and compression?

Did you check spark on all cylinders?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago

Toyota Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 4 months ago

have you checked your injectors pulse signal with a noid light?

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I have a power probe 4 with the injector testing mode and they all are pulsating normally at crank....
Toyota Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 4 months ago

oh thats cool I love that tool, how did we live without it lol, have you tried spraying a ton of start fluid? under the conditions your explaining it should be doing at-least something

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Yeah man I freaking Love It!! And let me try again
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I ran out of starting fluid. But I soaked a rag with gasoline... And it kind of wanted to turn over and then it shut off then it just cranked and the spark plugs are soaked in gas now
Toyota Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 4 months ago

the only other thing that could be wring is that your exhaust is clogged, you have fuel air and compression, air needs a way in and out , is it coding for anything?

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Nope no codes... just checked again.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I mean it was running well before....
Toyota Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 4 months ago

I would next check all cylinders for spark and see what kind of spark your getting

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Alright let me check again.
