    :confused:so every now and then my truck will have a problem starting first try no matter temp and then when i try the second time fires okay a little slow idle then rpms go to normal. i have 91 fuel in it and have tried gas anti freeze and fuel injector cleaner but it never makes a diff. my neighbour heard it this morning and said it could be a glitch in the comp not to worry. i took it to the dealer and they couldnt duplicate the problem

    Specs: 2011 tacoma 4x4
    nothing after market
    temp outside was 38f
    fuel 91

    any sugestions

    Fuel pump?

    Try leaving the key in the 'on' position for a few extra seconds before cranking. Maybe that will allow some fuel to reach the engine.

    I have something similar with my '08. Sometimes it will turn over repeatedly and not start, then I try the second time and it takes off. It's been doing this for a few years, so I don't think it's a sign of eminent failure.
