What you have is a VERY common problem. Your starter solenoid contacts are worn out. To rectify this, you have 2 options: Remove the starter and replace the burnt contacts (the are located under a metal plate that has 3 small bolts holding it to the starter; replace the plunger and the 2 copper coloured contacts) OR reeplace the starter. The clicking noise that you hear is the plunger hitting one contact, but the current from the battery is not passing thru the plunger to the other contact that leads into the windings of the starter. No contact = no crank.

Toyota lucida hard to start most times. occasionaly ok. 2.2 diesel. everything seems to work as should


in cold weather diesel gels up and sometimes causes a no start issue..a cetane fuel additive helps with this issue. if temps go below 20 degrees, add a quart per tankful of cetane to the fuel to help start on cold mornings. also diesels require more amperage to crank than gas engines do..thus a stronger battery is needed..

1. I have a Toyota AE91 Sprinter SE 1989 5E engine. Even driving at 80kph it DOES NOT engage the overdrive. What could be the problem. 2. In the morning it gets hard start, but starts OK for the rest...


The starting issue could be due to a bad battery. Hard starting in the morning is usually associated with the cold. Low temperatures, create hard starting/cranking for your battery.
You will see a CCA rating on your battery, in my 4wd it is 600CCA that means it has 600 Cold Cranking Amps. That means it is the amount of current my battery can provide at O deg F. Car manufacturers only use cheap standard duty batteries.

If it is a 4 speed automatic with a power/ecconomy button it won't engage overdrive. You put it in ecconomy for normal driving and power for towing.

Toyota lucida estima td wont start on could mornings


It may be the starter motor contacts which are worn. I have done this twice (on 2 different estima's myself. The starter will not turn or not properly. New contacts for these Denso starters are available on ebay from nipponnev for about £10 delivered and take about 1 hour to fit. No need to buy another starter. Hope this helps. Regards, Paul
