    Most of my repairs in the past have been to older model Chevy trucks where parts are parts and Jeep where parts are parts of other things so Yoda are rather new to me.
    VEhichle is
    1995 Tacoma 4x4
    Standard Transmision
    3Rz-n or 2.7 with coil in dist. cap

    park it in the enevning it was running great
    Next morning it turns but no start
    Last time this happened was just after I baught the truck and I called previous owner who directed me to the Alarm reset button.
    Problem solved.
    This time not so easy, reset did not solve.
    Not real sure where to start trouble shooting now. but have ideas and could use some directoion
    My plan of attack
    1. Check coil but not sure exactly how on this truck as there is no easy lead to hook a sparkplug to.

    2.If there is Power check for fuel flow.Hate the thought of this. so find mechanic.
    3 If no Power find way to diconect or bypass alarm. Is that doable?
    2. next down the line is this thing on the FW that calls itself an ignighter again do not know how to check
    Ok , any insight without getting to technical on me would be greatly appreciated
