My truck won't start when I try to turn it over 1st thing in the morning. but it seems to only happen when it's parked on a slight upgrade. Is this a problem with the 22re engine? <IMG SRC="smilies/mad.gif" border="0">

Nope.....Try checking your Battery terminals/starter posts for corrosion...sounds odd to me..... <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

It could be the starter contacts when they are at an incline they shift and don't make contact = no start. Buy some new contacts from toyota and throw them in real easy an only cost a couple bucks a cheap check before buying a new starter in your diagnoisis.

Try a doggie biscuit.
On the battery terminals there are a couple of feeds that blend into the harness. These are quick disconnects. Try moving these around and see what happens. These connectors, since they are right on the battery terminal, tend to corrode causing an interuption in the circuit. Clean them off with a solution af baking soda and water, and hit em with a wire brush. Hope that helps.. <IMG SRC="smilies/skull.gif" border="0">

it definately tries to kick over...it just sounds like it isn't getting any fuel. I just installed a new fuel filter about 4 months ago.

O.k. now thats a different deal all together, So it cranks but doesn't fire. How
do you finally get it to start, does it just crank a really long time and then start?

that sounds like you don't have any pressure in your lines. and it takes awhile to get it built up before it will fire. check your lines for leaks. you might need a new gas cap that seals good. check your filter and make sure the fittings are tight too! <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">
good luck! <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

You may be right about the fuel pressure thing. but a gas cap? ahhhh no. He might have a cold start injector concern also, lets see what he's got to say before we jump to conclusions. <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">

yeah..eventually it will kick over. I don't even try to pump the gas. Sometimes it's worse than others. this last time it took about 5 minutes of winding to get it started. It only does it, if it's parked for a long time (over night) on an incline.
I have a new gas cap and installed a new fuel filter a few months ago. So those parts are tight.

It sure sounds like the fuel system is leaking down to me. The fuel in the lines slowly runs back to the fuel tank, then takes
awhile to get back up to the motor. I would hook up a fuel pressure gauge and see if the fuel system holds pressure after the key is turned off. If not you will need to isolate the cause of the leakdown. The most common cause is a bad check valve in the fuel pump.
Diagnose it to be sure though.

Regardless of the problem with a fuel supply it should only take between three and seven seconds for the entire system to reprime.Does it make a difference how much fuel is in the truck?Pumping the gas will make no difference in fuel supply.It may go into a clear flood mode if you hold it to the floor in which the injectors will shut down.You may have a pump that is low on pressure however so have it pressure checked.Most often the pump will just fail but I have seen a few occasions where they will drop pressure and continue to run allthough not as well.If you can give as many details as possible it make it easier to diagnose.Good luck
