1992 Landcruiser starting problem
I have the same issue. Only when extremely hot out (above 95) I turn the ignition and nothing happens, no clicking starter, no crank, nothing. I wait a few minutes or after a few more attempts and it starts right up. If I have been driving it for awhile on a hot day I do not turn the vehicle off because it takes over 30 minutes before it will even crank. and this is the weird part ... if I have access to a water hose, i can spray the engine down and it will start. ??? Battery is fully charged, gauge never reads hot. Makes no sense. Had the starter tested and was fine???
Now I have a different issue. It cranks over but won't start. No sparks. It has always started right up whenever it cranks so I'm thinking these two issues are the result of the same problem. any ideas?
Before I start replacing points, caps, efi, starter etc I wanted to see if anyone had this same issue and what the cause/fix was.
