    My 92 V6 4x4 AT (<95k) 4Runner had a little hesitation going on so I dumped 4-5 oz of top oil (lucas) in the gas tank. Unfortunately I did this AFTER filling up with gas. Truck sat all night and I started it and drove 3 miles before the engine choked and stop running. I coasted to a stop, tried starting with starting fluid, no start. I had suspected that the oil dropped to the bottom of the tank and was picked up at the pump undiluted causing fouling of the plugs. I drained a 8oz of fuel, out of the filter, cold start line and injector fuel line. Fuel pressure is good. No Start.
    Since then I have swapped out the coil, rotor, distributor. Battery checks fine, I checked for codes (none). The oil issue may have been a coincidence and not the actual problem. I think the issue is down to electrical which is my Achilles heal. Car cranks great, just refuses to fire.
    Any suggestions on what and how to check further? Thanks
