Q No dealership has been able to fix the problem with my '96 Toyota Tacoma. For a year now, once the vehicle has been driven for at least a half-hour in warm weather and it is turned off and sits for a few minutes, it will not restart unless you wait for at least 40 minutes for the engine to cool. It seems like it wants to start but the vehicle is "thirsty" for fuel.
