1999 toyota avalon cold starting issue. Every morning I need to turn the key and wait for the dinging to stop before the car will start. Kind of like it needs to build fuel pressure first then it is ready. If I just jump in and turn the key it just misfires once and wont start. Just crank, crank, crank until I turn the key back, wait for the dinging to stop, then it fires right up. It only occurs first thing in the morning and once on the road there is no hesitation. Once warm it starts right up. My guess would be some sort of check valve that allows the fuel to drain back. Nobody seems to know because you only get once chance to start it and once running it cannot be duplicated. Any help for a DIY fix would be appreciated. Thanks
have the same problem?
