What's wrong? Toyota question
Posted 12 January 2012 - 10:13 PM
"Known issue with this car is the so called "cold start" problem, popular among Toyota models made in the early 90's. It becomes a headache in cold winter mornings to start the car - normally it requires to turn the key 3-4 times, wait about 5-10 min, and it will start. Once warmed up, it starts easily and runs smoothly for rest of the day. I searched this issue online and some people suggested that it may needs to replace a part called "cold start switch/valve".
What's wrong with this car? Is it as simple as replacing a valve or should I steer clear?
