    I have a 95 2.7L 4x4 and it has been giving me some issues starting for the last couple of weeks. The truck cranks but won't start and it may take anywhere from 5-15 tries before it finally starts. this doesn’t happen all the time, sometimes it will go a day or so with no issue then the next day it will give me problems every time I go to start it. Every so often when it’s trying to start it really shakes the truck bad. I am looking for some opinions and help on where to start my troubleshooting. I have already had my battery checked and it is fine. I am hoping to get this resolved because it's getting very annoying.

    Mine sometimes take too much time to start than I would like. I haven't changed the fuel filter in awhile. If that doesn't change than I am going to look into a fuel pump. Then the plugs and wires. Just some ideas Ill let you know how that turns out. Good luck

    Check your MAF sensor i had a 93 toyota pickup with the v-6 in it and it was doin what yours is doin and come to find out that sensor was bad. This is an easy fix and will save you alot of headaches!!

    Good Luck

    thanks stucksucksnayota
    i did some searching and couldn't find a new MAF sensor at a reasonable price. $280 was the cheapest i found new and i didn't want to go with a used one. i found some info on cleaning the MAF sensor so i am going to try this first.

    Ya i messed with mine for about a week got pissed off took it to a shop and they called me the next day and said well we got it fixed heres your bill. I dont remember how much it was but it was way to damn much for the work they did so i woul def. clean it out and see what happens.

    I just remember mine would start and idle really rough like it was missing but i change my plugs and plug wire and it still did it then sometimes it would start and sometimes it wouldnt.
