Why when i turn ignition switch over it just clicks than if i turn it off than back on the engine starts


Hello,

I had a similar problem with my 1993 V6 4Runner a few years ago. In my case it started in the Fall season and only got worse as the weather got colder (meaning that I had to turn the key several times before the motor would start). I replaced the battery which helped for a while, but eventually the same thing kept on happening. The electrical contacts in the starter were the problem. They get worn down over time. When the starter motor spins, it wears the brass/copper contacts and eventually they wear out. I decided to replace them myself (pain in the tush) but only spent $35 compared to the $700 estimate I got from Toyota.

Starting problems


I am guessing that you have a problem properly engaging the starter pinion into the ring gear to start the engine Check the starter pinion for correct adjustment and check pinion teeth for wear. Check the ring gear for wear from where the pinion fails to engage properly before spinning.

I have 1996 blazer oil pressure at start is 40 but after it warms up it drops down to 20 ???


Try a higher grade of oil for starters. Check the hydraulic lifters for wear by doing a leak down test. Check the rocker pivots for excessive wear. All these things will help loose oil pressure when the oil gets hot.

This sounds like there is a dead spot in your starter. The easiest way to resolve this issue is to replace your starter. Many times, if you take a lot of short-distance trips over the life of your car, the wiring inside the starter itself will wear (short trips means starting it more often, causing a lot of wear over time). Then the inner wiring of the starter wears too much, it forms a "dead spot" -- when the starter is stopped at a very specific spot i will not form the magnetic force needed to torn the starter motor. This is a common issue which can be dealt with for a time if you have to save the money to replace the starter. Tapping the starter, or arcing it with a screwdriver makes the inner workings of the starter jump a little, allowing it to move out of the dead spot and kick over as normal, but it is only a temporary fix. Unless you refurbish electronics for a living, it is very unlikely that you will be able to repair the starter on your own, and such a repair takes some time, so you are better off to replace it than try to repair the starter itself.
As long as the starter does not happen to stop in the dead spot, it will work as normal ... but in time the dead spot will spread, causing the issue to worsen. You can keep forcing it to turn with the two tricks you used until you have had the opportunity to earn the money to replace the starter (or until you have a day off to get the repairs done) .. but over time this can cause more damage to other parts of the car, so I recommend replacing the starter as soon as you can.

Car will not turn over or start unless jumped by another vehicle. Have already installed a new battery and alternator, so what could be the problem?


The problem is most likely to be the starter and/or the solenoid. Over time usage will wear out some of the electrical connections inside both and they need more power to operate. While starters normally don't act like this when they are wearing out, it is not unheard of. Hope this helps.

I own a ford e-250 79. when cold it's start nice


Hello tchuire13: My name is Roger and I will help you. The problem you describe is that of a bad starter. When the bushings wear down the armature will touch the fields inside the starter case. This happens when the starter is warm. Starter will generally work fine cold. After a heat soak the starter acts up. Replacement of the starter should cure your problem. SHould you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer you received. This is how we know you received the correct answer to your question. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger
