Question about 1996 Toyota Corolla

1 Answer

Toyota Sienna won't start in -18F

We're having record cold weather, and don't have a garage to keep our van in. It was last driven the day before yesterday. My husband keeps trying to start it; he can hear a clicking but the engine won't start. We are due for an oil change; the last time it got changed we used 5W-30. He needs to get to work; thank you for your help.

2005 toyota sienna minivan awd sometimes had loud


Hello and thank you for asking me, the most common cause for this is a loose/slipping power steering belt so it should be inspected and adjusted or possibly replaced. This engine has two drive belts, one for the alternator and a/c and another one for the power steering, if one is worn or loose it's best to replace both belts. Let me kno wif you have any more questions or additional info.

I have trouble starting my van when its is cold. after that its fine. the colder it is the longer it takes to start.


Not an unusual problem.....

Most important- tune-up! Make sure your plugs, distributor cap and rotor (if so equipped), air and fuel filter are OK and have been changed (at minimum) according to your owner's guide.

If your vehicle cranks over slow when cold-starting, consider a new battery. In cold weather, batteries lose efficiency, and older batteries lose more power than new ones.

Next... Gas - the fuel in cold weather states has a formula change in winter months to lower emissions- sometimes going to the next higher grade of fuel (example: from regular to mid-grade) helps.

If you have a garage, keeping the vehicle inside makes a huge difference with cold weather starting.

Keep your fuel tank full. Running the tank down and leaving it near empty most of the time allows condensation, which will result in getting water in your fuel, leading to hard starts and poor performance, and the increased risk of "rusting through" which will cause a leaky fuel tank.

'99 Toyota Sienna won't start in -18F


Try giving this vehicle a boos, If that doesn't work it may be a bad starter, however if you are in sub-zero temperatures and there is not antifreeze in you vehicle if its water or water-down antifreeze the block might be frozen. If this is a fact then you have to wait for it to warm up, then get it started and immediately have your vehicle winterized. (use pure antifree) Good Luck
