    What's up guys,
    I have a 1986 toyota pickup, with the 22r 4speed. When i go to start it up cold, the first try is unsuccessful, it acts like its going fire but doesnt turn over. Second try it starts up. What could be the problem??

    Check your grounds. Starters need really good grounds to carry the amperage. If the problem doesn't go away, check the starter and solenoid.
