My 95 Previa All Trac has 127,000 miles. Without regard to time or place it decides not to start. The starter cranks but does not start. Over the last several months, the fuel pump, fuel filter, & fuel tank have been replaced. It has been to two Toyota service depts and an an independ. shop. After tinkering around it starts up and runs flawlessly for several days. One time I had it towed home and parked it. Nothing that I did made any difference. Then when I returned from a business trip I decided to take another look. The battery was dead so I hooked up the charger. After the battery was charged I decided to see if it would start. It did after only a couple of revs. Again, it ran great for several days until after I filled it with gas. Had to have it towed once again to Toy. dealer. They checked elec. and didn't find anything wrong but it started after they put it all back together. Help!

MGhi, my 96 estima( import version ) had similar problems and i wasted lots of time putting off the inevitable and replacing the starter...never looked back...i was able to use the starter from a toyota picnic which was equipped with the same type of engine (3TCE)
