Engine Performance problem
1995 Toyota Tacoma 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 200000 miles

The toyota tacoma truck engine cranks but won't start when the outside temperature ranges from 95 F - 110F. I open the hood and let it cool down, then the engine cranks and actually starts. What could be the problem?

Do you
have the same problem?

Don't wait for nothing-do below to determine if its fuel or spark issue

Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine atleast 3/16 away from ground-have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, coil's resistances, cap and rotor, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it
