    So , 4-5 times I have had trouble starting my truck . I have to crank it 3-4 times to start it . It idles rough and low , but then jumps to normal idle and is fine .
    The truck in question is an 09 Prerunner V6 auto . 7100 miles .

    I have this happen to me atleast 2 or 1 times a week usually at my school parking lot (not sure why) when i come out to my truck around 4 p.m. my truck either miss fires and i have to start her again and hold the key longer to make sure the engine catches or i will start the key and hear the engine catch then drop it then try to stay on and like Rookie said, my truck would idle low and not sound right
