Sir.

This car has a unique problem as it does not start once engine is cold. It requires a long key-self to start. Immediately after starting its starting is okay, but a second attempt even just 30 minutes after parking it requires a long starting. And immediately after starting when the engine is either cold or hot.
I have changed spark plugs, fuel pump, salf, heat sensor and battery. Everything seems okay.
Your kind suggestions please.
Do you

Furthermore I have checked it at many mechanics including the dealership, but so far problem still exists. I also had a complete tune up done. But it still requires a long starting after being parked. Second start immediately after engine switches off is okay.

Scan for codes and check fuel pressure with a gauge in US auto parts rent it. It may be losing fuel pressure due to many things should be 44-50 psi and not drop after 5 minutes.

We really do not have Toyota's with that size of engine here in USA, so the spec I gave may be incorrect, but it has to stay at minimum pressure otherwise it is too low. Scan for codes as well.

Here is a link to an article that features written instructions and pictures explaining how to do the scan yourself, also I have included a link to our YouTube channel with a how to video on code scanning. Most scanners are inexpensive to purchase, you can purchase one from Amazon.com. Once you have the codes please get back to us so we can further assist you. Thank you for visiting 2CarPros.
