1996 Toyota Tacoma 2.4 liter F.I. engine

I am having some type of problem,with my Toyota Tacoma truck. When the engine is cold it starts just fine,but after I drive it until the engine warms up,and turn the engie off,it is hard to get started back up again!!!

It will crank and start back up but it almost run your battery down before it starts.

You need to check the basics, check for DTC's and fuel pressure, spark, etc

get a hold of a timing light and check the ignition timing the symptoms that you explained are typical to any vehicle that 's timing is slightly off [a couple of degrees]
