PROBLEM HAS OCCURRED TWICE IN PAST TWO WEEKS. STARTED AND DROVE CAR WITHOUT PROBLEM 30-50 MILES. PARKED ON LOT. AFTER SEVERAL HOURS RESTARTED CAR BUT AT THAT TIME AIR CONDITIONER, POWER WINDOWS, RADIO AND FANS DID NOT WORK. FIRST TIME SAT WITH ENGINE RUNNING AND AFTER ABOUT 10-15 MINUTES ALL POWER SPONTANEOUSLY RESTORED (AM NOT SURE IF TRIED TO TURN IGNITION OFF AND ON INITIALLY. IF I DID, THERE WAS NO CHANGE). SECOND TIME, TWO WEEKS LATER WITHOUT INTERIM PROBLEM, STARTED CAR WITHOUT PROBLEM, DROVE TO
40 MILES AND PARKED ON OPEN LOT, AFTER SEVERAL HOURS RETURNED TO CAR AND STARTED ENGINE WITH SAME PROBLEMS- AIR CONDITIONER, POWER WINDOWS, RADIO AND FANS DO NOT WORK . OUTSIDE TEMP IN 90'S. DROVE TO COVERED LOT (10 MINUTES), SAT WITH ENGINE RUNNING (TOTAL TIME ABOUT 30 MINUTES) WITH NO CHANGE. TURNED IGNITION SWITCH NOT ALL THE WAY OFF-CAUSED AN ENGINE "FLUTTER" SENSATION AS EXPECTED WHEN IGNITION IN IN BETWEEN STAGE - AND THEN SPONTANEOUSLY IMMEDIATELY ALL POWER RESTORED (A/C, RADIO AND FANS TURNED ON AT ONCE AND WINDOW POWER WORKED. THEN TURNED IGNITION ENTIRELY OFF AND THEN ON WITHOUT PROBLEMS. LET CAR SIT FOR FEW HOURS UNTIL TEMPS OUTSIDE LOWERED. RESTARTED CAR AND DROVE HOME WITHOUT INCIDENT. NEXT DAY DROVE WITHOUT INCIDENT (WITH WINDOWS OPEN JUST IN CASE).
THIS IS A NEW PROBLEM.

Wheel locked and ignition won't turn. Guess I need to replace the cylinder. How do I do it and what tools do I need?
My Engine has about 147,000 miles on it. I recently replaced the water pump. The timing chain was replaced at about 80,000 miles. The engine has always needed another quart about every 500 miles since I bought the car new. The "Check Engine" light came on, 4000 miles after last oil change and I just added a quart the prior week. Once I pulled over about 10 minutes after I realized there really was a problem, the engine died. I was traveling downhill and noticed when I pressed the accelerator pedal, the car would not respond. I turned off the radio and would hear a rough idle as if a piston was missed. I noticed the Check Engine light had come on too. I pulled to the side and the engine died just before a bridge toll booth. I was watching the temperature and it did not go up more than usual. I checked the fluids and just waited for Caltrans to tow me. I have been told I let the oil run out, but there was a bit of oil on the dipstick and the oil light has always come on before when the oil was low. Now that I have the car home, oil is definitely on the dipstick. Any suggestions?
diagnostic code is stuck in anti-theft mode,keeps stalling out
I have just discovered I need to replace the Fuel Pump on my '08 Highlander.
Concern - I have received a quote from the dealer for $1700 due to 15 hours of labor needed to "lower the engine" to access the part for replacement.
