Hey guys my sister has an 96 camry that seems to be haveing a weak start. When you turn the key all the light come on and it tries to start but sounds very weak. When it does start it sounds fine. The car turns over fine its just the actual action of starting it feels really weak. In the last 2 months, she has had...

- timing belt replaced
- cam & crank shaft seal replaced
- valve cover gasket replaced
- water pump replaced
- tune up (installed distrinutor cap & rotor, spark plugs & wires, pcv valve, power steering belt, fuel & air filter)
- starter replaced
- EGR valve selinoid (sensor) replaced

- new battery last summer

any ideas?

from when i first turn the key and up to the point the car actually starts is just real weak. I dont know how to explain it. Its just like it doesn't have its normal get up that it did say a month ago.

Are you sure your battery isn't going bad or you got a bad one? Also, how is your alternator, is it charging at the correct voltage? Just my thoughts off the cuff seeing how you have done a starter. By the way, was it a factory starter or aftermarket?

it's very hesistant to start.. struggles.. takes about 5 seconds for the engine to turn over. It's not clicking like a bad battery.. and the starter was replaced.
