FYI, I'm having the same issue I think its my distributor cap resistor (Was informed by a very good Toyota mechanic) that this could b the culprit. Very infrequent and totally unplanned. My car is a manual & I'll sink the clutch, turn the key tryin 2 turn it over & it will crank, but it doesn't start. If I leave it alone (sometimes) 4 a few minutes the car will eventually turn over.
This resistor sits on top of the distributor and has 4 leads that somehow control the electrical/voltage going the the distributor spark (Check the Haynes manual) It says this might need replacing. I would like some1 who might have had this specific problem & resolution please confirm that this is indeed the problem.
The last time this happened it took @bout 1.5 hr 4 the car 2 eventually "decide" 2 turn over. Its annoying now. I just want 2 get it fixed. TIA!
