1984 Toyota Corona Start problems...

Not sure if this has been posted before, if so can I have a link or just some general help..

Okay, Just brought a Old car for my first car, so if i crash it, It don't matter.. But I'm seeming to have some trouble with it. Every so often it wont start, it would just click, I'd put in the plug for the Immobilizer and go to start, and would click. I'd end up having to roll start it in third to get it to start.. I have just replaced the starter Motor, which cost just over $150.. And that Hasn't fixed it. I've also tried recharging the battery.. But I don't know if it works or not..

One of my friends told me it might be the Alternator, might be broken, when the car starts and runs it recharges the battery.. Just wanna get a second, third, forth opinion before I go buying parts. Any information that you might be able to provide me will be muchly appreciated.

You could try cleaning all the conectors .

Make sure all the bolts are tight.
I had same problem before ....found out that the bolts on the battery terminals were not tight.

This might help.

Nah I don't wanna buy a New Car. This one runs perfect, Except for the Odd starting problems. Are you sure its the battery though?
