91 Toyota Pick up won't turn over

The truck's battery kick's off, but I can't get the motor to turn over. Could this be the starter or solenoid? If so, how difficult is it to fix? Thanks

    Toyoto Ed,



    Thanks for your help! Unfortunately, you're dealing with a caveman when it comes to fixing the automobile. Attached is a photo of the '91 Toyoto engine under the hood wherein I've attempted to take a photo of the starter and solenoid to confirm that I'll be working on the right parts. Can you confirm for me that I'm targeting the right pieces? Thank you.

Remove the starter from the vehicle, Remove the 3 small bolts that retain the cap on the solenoid side. Remove the solenoid cap, then the plunger. Examine the plunger for burnt marks, inspect the contacts that the plunger contacts onto...If you see anything that is burnt or worn down, replace all 3 parts. Easy fix. I do it 8-9 times a month. Cheaper than buying a new starter.

    The starter is not in this photo. You need to be under the vehicle to access that starter. Roll under it and examine that area between the engine and the starter; take pictures and I will ID the starter for you.

91 toyota pick up won't' start clicking sound


your starter sounds like its sticking. the carbon brushes in older models wear down and need to be replaced. or, starter needs replacing/reconditioning. first try to tap lightly on the starter with a hammer then try to turn the key(bring hammer with you!!)
failing that you may need to get it checked. you could try a hill start to see if it is just the starter.

My 2008 silverado won't start battery is charged


No, it isn't an ignition issue.

Check power to the starter motor solenoid.
If this is getting power when cranking, then the issue is with the starter motor solenoid or starter motor. Replace.

2000 Corolla won't start.


See, the starter gets power from the battery it also gets power from the ignition switch. When you turn the key the solenoid closes and supplies power to the starter motor. So if you are hearing a click the solenoid is getting getting a signal from the ignition switch. Check for power from the solenoid to the starter motor. If it lights up that means power is being transferred to the motor and the motor is either bad if it doesn't turn the engine or the engine is locked up.

Starter motor does not seem to engage all the time like the battery won,t or can,t turn it over even if fully charged but it,s not all the time


Your starter solenoid/starter motor is going bad and needs to be replaced/rebuilt.

Usually it is the Solenoid as the contacts get burnt/eaten away, and not enough current can flow through it.

Just replaced the motor in my 91 mr2 and hooked everything back up now as soon as i turn the key to on the motor starts to crank


youve got the wires on the starter wrong. there are usually two small connections on the starter, but only one small wire. if you install wire on wrong one, it grounds without the key being turned to start. check it and swap that wire only. large cable to battery and large connector wire should stay on the large bolt to the solenoid

When i turn the key it sounds like rat a tat tat but does not start.


The fast click is a classic sound of not enough power.

Either the battery is low or dying, or the starter is wearing out and trying to pull more power than the battery can supply.

Once you get it started, jump-started, or whatever, take it to your mechanic to test the battery 1st, alternator 2nd, and if necessary, starter 3rd, in order of cost.
