When you say it won't start, you mean that there's nothing, no click just nothing? Then if you let it sit a while, it will start up fine like nothing was ever wrong? If this is the case, it may be one of 3 things. Bad distributor, bad ignition module, or bad coil. I have had two Toyota's with the exact same issue. But I decided to just hot wire a push button start under the dash instead of spending the money on a 20 year old vehicle. In both my cases, it wasn't a bad coil, because once I hot wired it, it always started. If you decide to narrow it down, please relay your findings. This is a common issue with the older Toyota's and I have yet to find a definitive answer. I have a buddy that says it happened to his old Toyota and it was one of pickup coils in the distributor that went bad. Please keep us posted on your results. Thanks!
