Well, KHLow2008 an Medevac, not only has the problem NOT been fixed, its gotten much worse. Now when you come to a stop sign, you STAY stopped until you try and start the engine again. The RPM indicator bounces up and down LOUDLY when bringing the car to a stop and the check engine light comes on briefly. I think this car is possesed! All this on top of the car not starting the first time. It was working fine in the cooler weather, but then summer returned and so did the car problem. I am suppose to take it back to the Toyota dealer Monday or Tuesday to have the old distibutor put back in because that obviously is NOT the problem! GRRRRRR! As much as they are probably tired of looking at this car, I think their curiosity is getting the best of them. They have put many hours into this car and have not charged me anything extra.

WAY UP AT THE TOP---I ASKED YOU TO PERFORM 2 TESTS. SEPARATELY
ONE WHEN IT IS ACTING UP
THE OTHER THE NEXT TIME IT IS ACTING UP
.I DON'T MEAN TO PERFORM THE TESTS ON TRY 23 OF THE KEY----I MEAN LIKE ON TRY 4, BEFORE IT CRANKS UP ON IT'S OWN
IT DON'T MATTER IF YOU PUT 5 FUEL PUMPS ON IT OR 4 SETS OF SPARK PLUGS. AND HAD THE POPE BLESS IT
DURING YOUR CARS "STUBBORN PERIOD". SOMETHING IS MISSING. WE SORTA HAVE RULED OUT "COMPRESSION"
SO EITHER YOU HAVE A "LACK OF FUEL"
OR YOU HAVE A "LACK OF SPARK"
. FOR WHATEVER REASON.A SHORTING WIRE, A STOPPAGE, ALIENS, SNAKES, KAMOTO DRAGONS, ETC.
WITHOUT YOU DOING THE TESTS. AND GIVING US THE RESULTS
WE DON'T KNOW WHICH GHOST TO CHASE
. CAN YOU HELP US OUT?

I will attempt to try out all your suggestions this weekend, but I also feel I need some help in doing some of these things.I'm not a mechanic, so some of the request are going to be foreign. Let me see what I can come up with.

I'VE BEEN LOOKIN' THRU VIDEOS FOR JUST THE RIGHT ONE...SEEMS THERE ARE MORE MIS-USE VIDEOS FOR STARTER FLUID THAN THE CORRECT USE
OK---A FIRE EXTINGUISHER IS ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA TO HAVE CLOSE BY--A BIG WET TOWEL MIGHT EVEN BE BETTER FOR A TINY FLARE UP
IN THIS VIDEO--HE SHOOTS IT IN A PORT--THIS IS FINE, IF YOU HAVE A PORT.....TAKING THE BIG HOSE OFF (FROM THE AIR CLEANER) AND SHOOTING IN A 2 SECOND BURST...THEN SHOVE THE HOSE BACK ON (NO NEED TO TIGHTEN IT YET)
