Motor turns over a lot before it will start. Once it is started it runs good until temperature hand strarts moving off of cold and when stop at stop sign it will die. It takes a few minutes to get it to start again but after that it will run all day no problem. Do you have any suggestions? Replaced thermostat,throttle position sensor,all vaccum hoses, plugs wires, cap, rotor button and flushed radiator.

The 9006/H4 low beam bulb seemingly burned out the other day on my wife’s 2006 Sienna so I pulled the plug off and noticed that some of the brown colored plastic had broken away around one of the connector spades. I tried switching out the good bulb and it also did not work so I now surmise that the connector plug is no longer any good. Is this something I can pick up at the dealer and fix myself?

or must I take it in to a Toyota dealer for repair. Seems like it would be a simple fix.

My 96 Toyota Corolla passed smog and then the following week had the timing belt, power steering belt, oil change, throttle cleaned, vehicle speed sensor replaced, and now has a code for misfire on 1,3, and 4. I was told to have a tune up done but did not yet have the money so I was on my way home and it stalled and wont start now. It sounds like it wants to start but doesn’t, I had it towed to my home and now it is sitting  there. It has gas and at the time it stalled the battery had charge but now 3 days later the battery is dead.

The Toyota Lucida, year 1998, engine 2430,petrol engine and model No. 2000 has been jerking and misfiring at varied speeds, at time it might jerk at 60 km/h, 80 or even 100 km/h. When it jerks the pulling also affected. We have changed the plugs, oil and the filters. It is still behaving the same. what could be the problem

I have a Toyota T100 that is having some major brake problems.  We’ve had it in and out of the shop since October and replaced most of the brake system except the master cylinder.  As you are driving along the brakes just lock down tight.  If you let it sit and cool off, then it will work for awhile.  It is getting rather expensive with no solution to the problem.  I would really like to hear some suggestions on what to do.
