here's what happened, it happened twice to me, the first time was around the same month last year.
i have a 2000 taco & i had it sitting for about a week i never did start it when i had it sitting. well i go to start it and it would not turn, the engine sounds like the timing cain busted? i was like dam! so i call the dealer and they had ot towed. they said the vapor canistor locked up on me and when they had the truck it started up just fine.
now the second time it happened same thing,it would not turn over. so i had it towed again and but now they dont know why it's doing this and think i just flooded my truck(fuel injected) and made me pay the towing bill.
what the heck is going on?

Actually..I never had that happen..but while we're on the topic of weird things happening:

When I first got my truck, I was driving up the interstate at around 75mph and all of the sudden my air bag light came on!! I sat way back in my seat, hoping that the bag wouldn't deploy. That was at around 1900 miles. It happened again a little ahile after..and haven't seen it since. VERY strange. Anybody else ever have that happen?

Happened to me today, cruising home from work and there's the airbag light on from out of nowhere, I haven't been back out and started the truck again this evening to see if it's still on or not. I've only had this truck for a little over a month, so I don't know if it's ever done it before or not. Weird, ...hope it's nothing.
