starting problems

  1. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    Hello all, I have a 2007 corolla with 160K miles, strong runner with no problems to date. On the way home last week the temp gauge started swinging erratically from normal to cold, and the ac system wouldnt run for a short period of time. There was also a bit of a high speed engine surge...
  2. Corolla 7th Generation (1993-1997)
    My Corolla has 160K miles, 1.8L DX Canada-US version. One day at a parking lot I couldn't start my car, not the battery. Prior to that I had 2 times couldn't start on the first turn but started on the second time turning the key. I thought it was getting old as I heard many old cars don't...
  3. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    When i turn the switch it just clicks. Then after about 7 or 8 turns it starts. I have changed the ignition switch, voltage regulator, cleaned the contacts inside the starter, had the started benched tested by advanced auto and it passed, the battery is fine, so what else could it be? Thanks in...
  4. Corolla 8th Generation (1998-2002)
    I have a 2000 Corolla LE. Last month a big storm passed through and flooded the street I was parked on with about 2 feet of water for 15 minutes - the drains were clogged. The water got inside the car and damaged the computer, which I had to replace. They also had to rebuild & clean the starter...
  5. Tercel, Paseo, Starlet, and Sera Forum
    A friend has a 1990 Toyota Tercel (Carbed, California Smog edition). I did some maintenance for her and noticed that on the air intake snorkel where the flap is that switches from hot air from the exhaust to cold air when the engine is warmed up, the two little plastic pieces that hold the...
  6. T-100 Forum
    Well after a few months of craigslist searches I found a T-100. Was looking for quite some time for something with less than average mileage and good maintenance history. While the truck is in great shape, I apparently shouldn't have believed everything the 82 year old guy that sold me it...
  7. Corolla 8th Generation (1998-2002)
    :confused: 2000 Toyota Corolla won’t start. Leaking oil at head, pulled PMP. Shaved head, reworked valves, replaced gaskets, head bolts, timing set, belt and water pump. Two weeks, balancer came off coasted to stop. Replaced all valves. Have spark, 160psi comp., injectors firing but car sounds...
  8. Camry 1st and 2nd Gen (1983-86) and (1987-91)
    I have a 4-cylinder 91 Camry with about 220k miles on it. Over the past few months I noticed a strange problem: the car either starts immediately (and runs smoothly) when the turn on the ignition, or sometimes doesn't even start. Although it doesn't start, the engine does crank. And when I...
  9. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    So! I have a base model 1992 Camry 2.2L A/T and it has a problem... It starts fine, but after running for a little while (not sure how long; never timed it) I'll turn the engine off, and it won't start back up. I can wait a little while and it starts up fine again... but not always. It had this...
  10. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    Hi everyone, I have looked around for a couple hours trying to find a solution to my problem, hopefully you all will be able to assist me with this problem. Well, I was driving home on my lunch break from work, and suddenly all the lights on my dashboard light up (check engine, oil, seat belt...
  11. 89-95 Toyota Pickup/Hilux
    89 4wd Truck 22RE Fuel Injected Problem- Truck starts fine and sometimes doesn't. Has no problem after running and turning off and trying to start again. Problem occurs after it has been sitting for a while. Not all the time, but a majority. When problem occurs it attempts to start then...
  12. Tundra 2nd Generation (2007-2013)
    Hoping someone has encountered this before. Intermitantly I will turn ignition switch from run position to start position and truck starts and then dies within a few seconds after starting. Returning the ignition switch back to start position causes the starter motor to run however, truck...
  13. Camry 1st and 2nd Gen (1983-86) and (1987-91)
    I have a 1989 Camry, most the time it works fine but lately I can't get it to start. When I turn the key the starter works fine it just will not run. I've replaced the spark plugs, distributor, distributor cap, and wires. Still about once or twice a month it won't run. I can let it crank but...
