Toyota Vitz year 2000 hard to start when hot


Topic starter

I have a Toyota Vitz (Yaris) of year 2000 with a 1 litre engine SCP series. When the engine is cold it starts immediately, but when it is hot it requires quite a bit more cranking to start. Engine always runs good and it has a nice acceleration for the little engine. It is automatic & has been doing this recently. what could be the problem?

If the fuel injectors are still the original ones, they may be leaking, so have them pressure cleaned.

If that doesn’t fix your issue, pressure test your fuel pump when it doesn’t start -
