I have the same problem did the same repair as you and still won't start hot and calls PO171 code im looking at replacing the fuel pump again
I would lik to replace the heater control valve on my 1996 toyota tacoma and am not sure where to start looking for it?
Turn the key and everything lights up but the start is dead. after a few more tries it starts. Replaced the ignition switch, no help.
truck has always started, even without oil or water. but after being parked for a week it will not start. it cranks real good, but won't start. engine has close to 300,000 miles. Just pulled a plug...
pulled my truck into the garage, installed a new stereo, messed with the stereo with the car off and now it wont start, the battery is charged and everything works but the engine wont start
