Hi tracysteve,

First thing to check...Does the engine turn at all? the coolant level correct....and the engine oil?.... If all that's OK....take a spanner and put it on the crank shaft center bolts (middle of the pulley) and try to rotate the engine..... Once you've confirmed that it turns.....remove the battery terminals and clean them....Also have the battery checked.... Still no joy?.... Is there a clicking sound when you try to start? If the answers yes.....You probably have a problem with the starter motor....Check the connections to the starter and also the starter relay.....

Let me know how you get on?

Regards Johngee10

CAR won't start when it's hot

Check the Fuel Pump Relay. behind the battery next to the OVP Over Voltage Protection Relay. They do fail. Occasionally the engine will not start when hot. This becomes more frequent until you are left stranded. If you are comfortable with jumping two terminals you can jump terminals 7 & 8 test the relay. if the car starts your Fuel pump relay is bad.

Car having prob starting, having to jump start it. Got an ignition unit but it was not that. When driving my 17yr old celica gt4 it feels like it is losing power

There are lots of issues that might relate to the engine not firing and must be checked. So start by checking on the fuel, the fuel filter, the fuel delivery.
next check on the firing , the HT coils the spark intensity. Check the coils and the timing of the spark.
Please check the following tips:

The Buick's engine does not crank when I try to start it. There is a clicking sound when I try to start it, but the engine doesn't turn over. What Do You Think?

The starter is bad or the battery is dead. If the battery is fully charged then the starter needs replaced. The solenoid inside of it is clicking

1990 Eclipse 1.8L. Fully chargered battery. all

It is very possible the "starter Solenoid" has failed within the starter. If this is the case the starter will do little or nothing. Also check connections at starter, lose cable? You should be able to jump across the starter to see if it works; if nothing then you know it is the starter. Oh yea, if it has an automatic tranny it may be the Neutral Saftey switch failed or out of adjustment; try wigglying around the gear shifter or try starting in neutral.

I hope this may have assisted you,

1990 toyota pickup with 22re engine and 235000 miles failed smog in cali.,not because of emissions but because timing was at 30 degrees instead of 10. It starts and runs well. I have not adjusted timing ....

Reset the engine timing by first jumping pins E1 and Te1 in the grey box under the hood. If the truck runs poorly set to proper timing, your timing chain has jumped a tooth. Does it rattle bad at idle? Id so, the guides are worn out, and the chain is stretched.
