Question about 1991 Toyota Pickup

Follow up question - How do I identify the starter and solenoid?

Toyota Ed,

Thanks for your help. I may have posted my follow up question for the masses unintentionally, but here it is again:

How do I located the starter and solenoid? I took a photo of the engine (below) and focused on the firewall where I thought they'd be located.

Can you confirm for me? Thank you,

The starter is not in the photo that you provided. To access the starter, you mut be UNDER the vehicle. Roll under it & take pictures at the area between the engine & the transmission, repost and I will ID the starter for you.

Where do you find it on the car.the starter

Follow the large cable from the positive post of the battery. If what you find that way is the solenoid, follow the large wire form the other side of the solenoid to the starter.

If you want a more specific answer, you have to give the make, model and engine size (if there were optional sizes available).

Where is the starter solenoid located on a 1987 Toyota Supra?

mcdevito75 here, The solinoid should be on the starter itself. Follow each battery cabe, 1 goes to ground the other to the starter.

Ignition clicks doesnt start motor

First check your battery. Then unhook each batter post one by one and clean the ends. Follow the black wire to where it ground to your frame, clean the connection there also. Then follow the red wire to your starter and clean the connections there also.

If that does not fix your problem, then remove the starter/solenoid and take it to your local auto parts store to have it tested for free.

!997 Toyota Tercel runs good if push started, but cannot get vehicle to start with key. suspect electrical

There are 2 possible reason for this:
1- The battery is weak. Solution:s Need to charge it fully.
2- The starter solenoid get corroded due to arcing after a period of time causing high resistance, so current can't follow enough to feed the starter. Solution: Replace the solenoid. Here how it looks:

1977 ford f 100 solenode mounted on starter

so did this problem just happen or did you do some wiring repairs??. on a 1977 the only solenoid should be the fender. I dont have a wiring diagram that old. if it just happened there is a small wire on the solenoid on the fender, unhook this wire, and see if it happens again. if the starter does not engage then you may have a ign switch problem, if it still engages then the solenoid is bad.

Need to check the Starter but i don't know were to find the Starter?


The starter is usually at the rear of the engine mounted on the bell housing before the transmission. Best is to follow the big battery cable (not the ground -). It would look something like this.

In the picture below, the upper portion is the starter solenoid while the one below it is the actual starter.
This of course assuming that all other vital components of the car are working.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
