Hello everyone, new to the forums. Got a weird problem here I’m hoping somebody can help with.
2002 Toyota Corolla. 152k. After turning the ignition on and engaging the starter motor, it takes several seconds of cranking before the engine will start. The starter works fine, it cranks fast but it just won’t start right up like my other 2 Toyota’s, same year same model. It takes 3 to 4 seconds of the starter cranking the motor, regardless if it’s hot or cold, before it will start.
I’ve taken it to two mechanics, one a “Japanese car specialist”…neither had any idea what it was and were unable to fix it. Car has been tuned, new spark plugs, wires, etc.
Any ideas? Thank you in advance.
