    too much to list


    I am amazed at how people throw out statements as fact when they are in fact erroneous. The lemon law is not even close to being applied here, much less one more incident.

    Sounds familiar. Have them check the fuel rails.

    Have you changed your fuel filter or whatever the dealer said you had? My brother's '96 celica has started acting funny and shutting off when it gets warm. If it is cold it starts right up. Once it heats up it dies. May be something similar to your problem. We changed the fuel filter and it seems to have fixed the issue. Don't really get why it fixed it but it did.

    got my truck back today. Jim Norton Momentum toyota in OKC was great to deal with. What they figured out was a blown ignition fuse... which makes me feel really stupid because i checked all the fuses under the hood but didnt even think about under the dash. I had my add-a-fuse in with the ignition for my back up camera anytime mod and that has worked great for the last 10k miles... i dont know why all of a sudden it blew a fuse. Just going to throw away the add-a-fuse and hard wire it to a power source now. It was a cheap add-a-fuse from ebay so maybe it just heated up and shorted out? who knows but im glad this is all it was. Seems too good to be true. Im carrying a bunch of spare fuses because i dont think the add-a-fuse was the true problem.
