what's the ethanol content in fuel over there. I"m going to guess that it's none. either way, high ethanol and/or other contaminants can cause rust in the fuel system and ridiculous problems with the fuel system

oh forgot. the engine start button itself can cause things just like that.

Thank you all for your feedback and your help. Changing the fuel injector plus pump solved the problem.

Please see this video that I took to give you an idea and hopefully give me some pointers: http://db.tt/o3a1wHF3

Thanks in advance for your help.

Thanks for your post..
The professionals told me that the starter motor is defected and they have to replace it.
What do you think fellows: are they right?
Because I am afraid that they have to dismantle alot of parts to reach the motor and that's regardless the high cost of doing that!!!

Shall I let them do that? Or shall I let them do as posted in#19?!!
Plz help me out ..

If the symptoms are same - it is probably the fuel pump. I agree with Lextrician.. the fuel pump is probably not holding pressure. No need to change the injectors - because if injectors were bad - you will notice engine struggle even during idling and driving.

On the battery drain issue - I had this type of problem 20 years ago with a 1995 lexus LS 400. At that time, I isolated it to a remote start, which was draining current.
You should check the drain current under standby conditions. - make sure everything is off. Remove negative terminal and put an ohm meter (a cheap multi meter should be fine) in series. If I remember correctly - after 20 years, the idle current in that car was about 30 milli amps.. Not sure of the number.. and that car did not have the electronics modern cars do. The dealer should know how to check idle current and what standard idle current should be.. and he has to try and trace it backwards.. with his computer..
