Toyota Pickup 94, 22RE, 4 Cyclinder, No Crank, No Start, but start after 1-2 hr

Hi Everyone,
I am new to Toyota Nation forums, need advise with my toyota pickup 1994, 22RE, 4 Cyclinder
Issue: Pickup starts fine in morning, problem starts sometimes when i drive it for 1-2 hrs hours and then stop, after stopping it for 15-30 minutes, it wont crank, no starter movement, i just hear a little click. I checked its not overheating and i have sufficient coolant in radiator and new battery.

If i leave it for 2-3 hours or pour water all over the engine which i doubt helps to cool some component down and it would start after 15-20 minutes.

This is very ir-regular issue happens sometime and sometimes runs fine.
This situation has left me stranded few times and i am looking for advise to fix it, one of my friends told me it could be over heating Coil and advised me to put wet cloth over the coil to help it cool down and then try starting, i did try it atleast once but i didnt help and i didnt had enough time to wait and see.

I would be willing to bet it is the solinoid unit in the starter. I had an 86 4runner that did the same thing, the small click when you turn the key. I used to carry around an axe handle for this exact purpose (and others). Try this: get under the hood and find the starter, have a friend turn the key all the way and hold it there. While he has the key turned, tap on the starter with the axe handle or something similar. The tap will free the stuck solinoid and i bet it will start right up. Of course, if this is the problem, you probably need a new starter. When my 4runner was doing that however, i was so broke it wasn't funny, I learned to hold the key with the very tip of my finger, and with some impressive flexibility, i could reach around and just barely manage to tap the starter...not flattering for a first date though.

Welcome to Toyota Nation ToyotaPickup1994.
I moved your post to here from the Tacoma Forum because the people here will be more familiar with the 22RE and it's idiosyncrasies.

Heat can cause the problem you describe, as tpender suggests.

Will give it a try

Hi Tpender,
Thanks for the advice, i will give it a try next time, how about over-heating coil or coolant temperature sensor do you think i need to look into those?

Fourwd1 - Thanks for moving the post.

Replaced Starter Recently!!!

Hi Tpender
I replaced Starter originally sometime back when this issue started, please correct me if i am wrong, if it was solenoid issue i should atleast get or hear atleast little click from starter as if it is trying to turn, but i have no click like that.But i will give it try anyways.

I am more thinking of coolant temperature sensor or coil, as this is clearly related to heat.

Yeah, if starter was replaced, then I would look into the other possibilities. In your first post, you did say you heard a small click when you turned the key though, thats what brought the solinoid to mind. The coil would be the next thing I would look at then. Good luck.
