I have a 2004 L300-2 and recently we've been having some weird issues with it. Every once in a while the engine will not turn over, try and try and it just won't turn over, then eventually it will and will run great. Just today my wife was at stop light and when she went to push on the gas nothing happened. So she turned off the car, and tried to turn it over and it wouldn't turn over. Five minutes later it turned over and ran perfectly fine. Is a sensor out? It's not throwing any codes as of yet. So I don't know. Please help!

When you say wont turn over do you mean crank but no start?Or no crank no start?Also you said your wife pressed the gas and nothing happened. So the rpms didnt go up or they did and the car didnt move while in drive?Your sure there isnt any codes?Sounds like you could have a bad crank shaft position sensor. Do you have a multimeter to do some testing?
