I suspect that when the transmission was replaced, the starter was not aligned properly during its re-installation. If the transmission replacement was done by a professional shop, take it back and ask them to check the starter alignment and proper operation.

Have a 1997 Land Rover discovery, it was working fine before it just wouldn't turn on the next morning any ideas? -180,000 miles Bought it 3 weeks ago Had just passed smog if it matters


Diesel or petrol? Either way, does the starter crank? If so, you probably have a fuel delivery problem. If not, check the battery also the starter solenoid - give the latter a good bash wit h a hammer to loosen any rust - quite common.
Put a meter across the battery terminals - if less than 12.5 volts or so, get an auto electrical to do a load test on the battery before replacing it

the timing belt will not have anything to do with the motor turning over trying to start. First make sure u do have a very strong battery. Could be a bad connection or a broken wire to starter also.

How old is your battery? Someone needs to check the battery's condition and state of charge, someone with a voltmeter. Also, if any battery or starter connections are not good or are loose, the starter may not be able to get the high current it needs from the battery to operate.
If the battery and cables turn out to be good, it is just possible that you got a defective starter. It has happened, and to check you would have to take the starter back off and have it tested.

88 Toyota Camry won't start


Had the same problem with an '88 Camry. Replaced the battery, distributor, and starter, but it didn't fix the problem. Then, a few years later, when the battery was getting old and tired, I replaced it with a more expensive _heavy-duty_ battery. That helped quite a bit. It didn't totally fix the problem, but made it a lot less frequent.

A mechanic I trust told me that non-OEM replacement rebuilt starters pretty much all have substandard wiring, with bad spots in the windings. A heavy-duty battery maybe cranks out enough extra amps to mostly compensate for this.
