    My 05 Tacoma edition has been taking about 3-4 seconds before starting up these last several days. Ignition really has to turn over and I'm often about to stop turning the key right when it ends up starting. Anyone else have this issue with their vehicle or know the best course of action?

    My SAAB 9-5 does this when the tank is 1/2 to 1/3 or below. It sounds bad but I know as soon as I fill up it will go away.

    Thanks for info guys! My tank of gas is currently full right now and has been when these start up issue are happening, but I do usually run it pretty low on E. I'll try turning key on for a few seconds before actually starting engine and see how that goes

    Worked much better this morning after putting key in and waiting a couple seconds...hopefully this does the trick going forward as well! Thanks:)

    Hitch and wiring, aux back-up light, rear strobe lights, radio and underseat sub.
    Delayed starts are caused by loss in pressure(through the checkball), poor ignition, poor fuel injection, poor fuel, and there is a checkball that should keep the fuel rail pressureized.
    List of probability top to bottom: fuel quality, ignition, injection, checkball.
    Fuel pressure readings will tell you if it's the checkball. Check it multiple times, before and after starting.
    Run some injector cleaner and dry gas through the tank and inspect the ignition.
