Question about 2000 Toyota Camry

Corsa Engine wont start

Hi

Corsa has been stood for three months but i strated it 2 months ago and just ran it. Today it wont start. we've checked that there is enough power in the battery but we think the engine is not turning. We have tried to jump start it behind another vehicle but we had to stop as smoke was coming from near the fn elt, could perhaps be the alternater. I had had antifreeze in and oil and nothing seems to have been damaged over the winter. Anybody have any ideas?

    When you started it 2 months ago, did you let it fully warm up?
    How did you jump start it? Did you let it charge for 10 minutes? Did you use Starter Fluid?
    When you try & start it, does it crank, click, or do nothing?

Your starter could be jamed causing the fly wheel to lock up try pushing the car in reverse let out the clutch with gear in 2nd forward position this will turn the engine in the opposite direction and free the starter if it is an automatic the starter needs to be removed this is caused by a rusted Bendix spring have the starter servised

SOURCE: engine died while driving..

Dear friend,
first of all try to recall when was the last time that you got you engine oil changed. what i think is that your car must have run out of engine oil and u must be running it without oil for a long time. This is the most common reason for engine lock up. The sound you hear must be from starter coil used to start engine.
Take the car to garage as soon as possible.

it sounds like either your having a short at the starter or the ignition switch is bad, I am leaning towards the issue being the starter, usually when the ignition switch is going bad there will be no click,

SOURCE: 1996 Toyota Tacoma wont start when the engine is hot and sits a few minutes

I RAN INTO A PROMBLEM MUCH LIKE THIS ONE ON A 98 S10 PU I OWNED. WHEN I DID A FUEL PRESSURE TEST IT WAS WITHIN SPECS BUT I DIDN'T DO A FUEL VOLUME TEST. WHEN YOU FIRST HIT THE KEY THE FUEL PUMP KICKS ON AND GAVE ME PROPER FUEL PRESSURE BUT WHEN I PULLED THE LINE AND HIT THE KEY IT BARELY SPIT OUT A 1/4 CUP OF GAS. I TRACED THE PROBLEM BACK TO BEING AN ELECTRICAL SHORT IN THE POWER SUPPLY TO THE PUMP.

OH AND BY THE WAY I AM FACING THE SAME EXACT PROBLEM ON OUR 96 TACOMA DELIVERY TRUCK. I'M GOING TO BE DOING THIS TEST HERE SHORTLY AND I WILL LET YOU GUYS KNOW WHAT I FIND OUT.

SOURCE: 2002 sequioa sudden stall

Often when the battery is disconnected or replaced the computer will lose it's learned idle settings. You could try letting the engine idle in park until the engine temperature comes up to normal and leave it like that for a few minutes, then put the Air con on and let it idle again for a few minutes, then switch the air con off and put it into drive. If it does not stall, let it idle in drive for 2 minutes or so, and then do the same with the Air con on. This should relearn the base idle settings and stop it from stalling on you. Before you carry out this procedure you should make sure that when you replaced the battery you didn't remove any other plugs or knocked anything that may be causing the fault. If you try this procedure and it still stall when you select drive, you will need to get a Mechanic to check the vehicle over.

Hope this helps,
Mark.

see if there is oil in the gearbox. usually a plug on the side of the gearbox. if no oil in it and no visible sign of leakage, then they probably did not put oil in the gearbox.

Opel Corsa - 1.6 - Sail - delayed start


could be a blocked air vacuum line you should see a thin air line coming from the intake and go to the cam cover top check this line as they do block up after awhile and it will cause this problem. also if this is blocked you need to clean out the intake top as this is were it clogging up as well.

Turns over good but wont start, ran a little funny a couple of days ago . Today started and died , then ran all the way home ! Tonight went out to sart it , it didnt want to start then the 2nd time it...


Check for spark-if you have a tachometer, see if when you crank it the tach needle moves-if not, you probably need a crank sensor, which are not too expensive or difficult to replace.
