Dear guys
I have a Toyota 97 with mileage of 150k. for the past few months when i start the engine of my car to warm it up..the engine behaves as if there is a faulty spark plug, i.e while on idle, there are many engine hiccups while idling, an "irregular heartbeat" as i can best describe it. However when the engine is warm enough after 20 mins or so it reduces and i feel the engine is idling smoothly..but its not a guarantee..hiccups do still appear even on a hot engine. i replaced the spark plugs however the issue is still the same. Also i have noticed, my engine oil gets Black dirty very quickly, less than 1000Kms..i use the car for a max of 20kms per day so its quite surprising..pls advice

My 1993 Toyota Tercel does not start when key is turned. New battery, all fuses checked and fine. When the doors get opened, hazard lights start blinking for 15 blinks, then pause, then 15 blinks. This continues until doors are closed. A friend discovered a green Toyota starter relay under the dash directly underneath the glove compartment that you can feel clicking when you touch it when the 15 beats of hazard lights goes on.
Any ideas if this may be my problem? Maybe just replacing the starter relay? What does the doors being opened have to do with initiating this blinking?
