Question about 2000 Toyota Camry Solara
Sounds like dead battery when cranking sometimes (just clicks), but new battery & alternator OK. Was very intermittent at first, but now getting worse.

As you are finding out ....this is how you kill a car. You need fuel, spark, compression, and air to run an engine. Look for spark and fuel items to be working. A computer controls much of the spark part. They canbe sensitve electrically. If you are cranking ..starter sounds ok. Alt. will act up after you get started. concentrate on spark and spark control. Fuel and fuel control. This is what you need to start.

i'm sure it's not the starter itself that is the problem, have the stater's solenoid checked...it might be stucked. It's quite a lot of work removing the starter but you can do it if you are willing enough to learn. You just need the right idea and tools to do it. Hope this will help save you bucks!

Your diesel land cruiser has a separate glow plug for each cylinder. Their function is to pre heat a swirl chamber prior to injecting fuel into the cylinder. Since you have no spark on a diesel, your combustion comes from superheated fuel and high compression...for you vehicle I believe the compression ratio is 21.6:1 as compared to 8.0:1 for a gasoline model. If you are not getting combustion readily, then either the glow plugs are not getting the fuel preheated properly before starting, or your compression is low. I would tend to believe it is a glow plug issue since they only stay on for a second. Good Luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful!
