The ignition coil inside the distributor may fail. Our technicians tell us this may result in a hesitation on acceleration, especially when the vehicle is warming up on cold, rainy days. The pickup coils inside the distributor can also fail and cause a no-start condition. There have also been some failures of the radio noise suppressors inside the distributors, which can short out. Our technicians recommend replacing the whole distributor with a complete, genuine Toyota distributor if any of its components fail.

    Ive had this problem in rainy weather for quite a while. I haven't fixed it yet but I'm glad to know I'm not alone. My mechanics have had a hard time finding this because it was fine in dry weather.
