SOURCE: Car will not start right away...makes awful noise

It looks like you have an issue with the starter not engaging the flywheel correctly. Does it make a BrrrrRRRRRRRRRRP noise? Best advice: Replace the starter. Do not get it rebuilt. If you replace the starter ASAP, you may be OK. If not, you are going to have to have the transmission pulled, and you will have to replace the flywheel; that is what is being damaged by the bad starter drive. This is, unfortunately, a common issue.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for advice!

SOURCE: 93 Toyota Paseo 1.5 lit, 5 speed will not start when hot

The starter won't get hot while the car is running. The starter only works while you are cranking it over. After running a while and the car is hot, feel if your battery is not over heating. If the vaultage regulator in the alternator is bad the battery may be overcharging causing it to over heat and not want to work when boiling. After it cools down it may work again.
I this will help.

SOURCE: 1997 Toyota Camry won't start

The starter has two L-shape copper plates. These copper plates get used every time you start the car. After certain period of time the plates are so thin that no contact is made. So the car doesn't start. So your copper plates could be worn out. I had my replaced. And the problem is gone. If you know a good mechanic, you'll probably get fix for less than $100.

It's a common problem on Camry. They wear out prematurely.

2002 mercury cougar make a clicking noise like the battery is dead but it's not and won't jump start either.

Are you sure the battery is not dead? This is usually a good indicator of a dead battery or not enough charge to turn it over
Failing that Loose leads,Poor connection to starter motor or faulty starter motor.

Wire from engine to lower unit smoking when trying to start engine

sounds like a dead short in the starter
That can be from a bad armature or failed bearings
If the starter has been left engaged after starting that will result in your problem as it destroys the starter
The ground wire to the starter or engine has to be the same capacity as the positive wire which should also be getting very hot
The current to a starter is normally regulated to around 500 amps but if there is a dead short , that can go even higher

Car was running, electrical wire burning smell, starter makes grinding noise, with the car running, stop the car, starter keeps making grinding noise, with the car turned off, ABS and trac control

You have the polarity of the battery backward somewhere. Did you replace the starter and hook it up backwards. Difficult but possible. Check your positive and negative on the battery itself.

My starter is very hot is that normal?

Sounds like starter problems, maybe shorted out. Starters will get hot if operated a lot, but shouldn't get extremely hot. Manufacturers say this: do not operate starter for longer than about 15-20 seconds at a time, then let it cool off for about a minute before trying again. Otherwise starter will get too hot and burn out.
Take your starter off and have it tested-it is probably failed.
Is the distributor cap on securely now?

Clicking noise coming from the engine and a dead battery

That clicking noise is your starter, your battery is dead or severly drained and when you try to start you car, your starter selnoid is trying to turn over, but doesn't have enough juice to get it going, so it's making that clicking noise. If you have a old, dead battery, it is time to replace it, if it's new and only been drained for exmaple leaving headlight on etc... then you can try to jump your camry with a jumper cable through another vehicle. Let it the car run for about 30 min or so to have it charge. You can also take it to autozone, advance auto part and have them charge for free or test it.

Car wiil not start while turning key but makes a ticking noise

Obvious choise is a dead battery.

Check your lights, horn (horn often sounds weak or sickly with a dead battery.)

If a dead battery, check the battery terminals for corrosion.

Try charging or jumping the car off. If it starts, take to an auto parts place, most will do a battery/alternator check for free. (Be prepared, they will make you kill the engine, which means you either buy a battery there & replace, or better have cables to jump off and drive somewhere else. on other hand, most will lend you some wore out tools to install the new battery, but their insurance does not allow them to do it for you. )

2001 Mercury Mountaineer won't start

Have a load test done on the battery. If it checks out good, take a voltmeter to the battery and have an assistant rotate the engine. If you see more than a 2 volt drop when the car is being started, the starter is heading south.
