2008 Tacoma - start engine, then dies...
So folks, this is the scenario:
I drive my truck, it's good and warmed up, no issues at all. I arrive at my destination, and shut the truck off. I return to the truck some 30-60 minutes later, start the truck up and it dies within 1 second of it starting. I try and re-start it and it won't even catch.
The first time it did this I let it sit for a few hours, tried a re-start, and it started right up no problem. Yay! The second time it died was a good month or so later, and at least 4 tank fill ups in between. However, this time I dumped a bottle of gas line anti freeze in it and it started up right away. Yay again!! The third time it did this, I was sitting at the gas pumps, tried dumping a bottle of gas line AF in, and it still took a good hour before it would start. Boo! I must've read every magazine at the Shell station waiting. Now, it's starting to do the no- start more frequently and up to several times a day - in fact, yesterday I had to leave the truck running all day in sheer paranoia that I wouldn't get to all my required jobsites.
My theory of a little moisture in the tank has been thrown out since I've dumped a crap load of gas line AF in there.
I'll be taking it into the dealer but does anyone have any thoughts on what may be causing my, "omg, please start, please start.......noooooo!"
