    As the title states sometimes my truck takes a little while to turn over and when I say a while I mean like 2-3 seconds and sometimes it starts as soon as I turn the key :confused::confused: just wondering if its normal or if there's anyway to get it to always start up as soon as the key turns. Also weather doesn't play an issue seems to just do it sometimes

    My '06 turns a couple of times too. It has done it since I got it. Hot or cold, it has never started right up.

    I've had 2 different tacomas that did the same. My first one was an 02 V6 and the one I have now is an 04 V6. Both take a few seconds to start.

    My 02 2.7L does this as well. I think it's fairly common.

    My dad's '01 does that. Has ever since he bought it. No battery problems or anything.

    Not being a smart ass but most Tacoma's (that I've dealt with) usually take a second or two. Seems normal to me. Shouldn't be a problem I wouldn't assume. You could get it looked at at a mechanic.

    I don't think there is anything wrong with your engine though.

    Naturally the cold weather is much harsher on a battery than in the warmer climate so weather WILL play an important part in starting especially now that it's cold. However anything within 3 seconds is still within OEM spec range so. What I do even though my battery is fairly new within 6 months is hook it up about once a month to a trickle charger.
