Q: Starting problems after driving it for awhile.

asked by on

Hello, My Sienna 09 runs very good on highway even over 70 miles/hr. Has lots of power. Unfortunately, when I park it going shopping or so, the car won't start. So I had to wait 15 or 20 minutes and it started again with no problem. One time, I drove it for an hour and half in traffic and it started jurking like if it's gonna shuts of, but it never did. Could it be Efi relay. I switched fuel pump relay once but nothing happened but never tried Efi relay or others. By the way, I cleaned the intake manifold and the MAF was cleaned and performing very well. Sometimes fuel pump dosen't make the sound" the click" Thank you.
