Question about 2007 Toyota Solara

1 Answer

2000 Solara My solara lost all power and engine lights came on, thought I ran out of gas, but now car wont start. It sounds as if it wants to turn over but after only a second or two, it begins to spin at a high pitch and it won't turn over. I am afraid it is a timing belt. Also googled and read it could be the fuel filter or fuel pump. any thoughts, please. I am a single mom, who does most of my own easy work on my car. Maybe just a suggestion as to check the timing belt, etc. Please help.

When you say It wants to turn over for a second or 2, is the engine turning at all? Or, is the engine "spinning over", or "cranking" much faster than it used to. If this is the case, my experience tells me that you probably have a seized water pump, and the timing belt has either sheared off some teeth, or the timing belt has jumped time. If so, you prob just need a belt & a pump. That was the bad news...The good news is: if the belt broke/jumped time, you should have NO internal engine damage. Note: timing belts are a rather involded operation. Figure 3 hrs to take it off & replace it. Please feel free for further info if you want to undertake this job on your own. Hope this has helped.

1999 SOLARA CHECK ENGINE LT


Don't use any higher octane fuel than what the manufacturer recommends, that will cause problems with cold starts and other poss issues due to the diff of the fuel burn rate. As far as the check engine light goes there are 100 different things that turn the light on, all are related to faults that have occurred in the electronic control of the engine, emission control system and in some cases the transmission, have the powertrain control module tested for trouble codes, whenever the light comes on one is stored.
