Question about Cars & Trucks

My husband says my starter is going out in my 2005 scion xb. He is pretty good at fixing cars but gets nervous touching my scion. Is it a hard fix to replace the starter? Risky move to be cheap?

Once the car is up and the plastic shield underneath is removed, there really isn't too much to it, disconnect the battery but be sure you have your radio code{usually in owners manual} then just a couple of bolts and 1 terminal and 1 plug and its out, on the scion he may have to remove a side bracket {easy} all in all about 1 hours work in and out. Basic mechanics can do this. good luck.

SOURCE: How d you replace the starter on a 2005 Scion xb?

There are two bolts, one is at the top exactly opposite of the first one you took out. You will not be able to see it, but feel around the head of the starter where it goes into the block and you will feel where it goes.

SOURCE: How do I install alt. belt on 2005 scion xb?

I just looked at my '04 xB. It looks very straight forward.
loosen the bolt that holds the alternator to the bracket.
carefully slide the alt to the bottom. (Also be aware of the plug and wires on the alt.They should never hold the weight of the alternator. You dont want them breaking prematurely.)
Pull the belt off, remove the belt from the crank shaft pulley.

Do the reverse, and you will have replaced the belt.

Make sure to check the belt in about a week or so.
New belts will stretch over time. Make sure you keep the tension tight enough to work correctly, but not so tight that the alernator shaft is warped.
I usually place the new belt on both pulleys and give a good "medium" pull on the alt while tightening. Find the middle of the belt and squeeze them together, depending on the type and length of the belt, there should be about 1/4" of flex on both sides.

SOURCE: i have a 2005 scion

The fuse that runs both is blown. Your manual will tell you the location and type needed to fix it. it will probably be a 10 or 15 amp fuse. Most cars have to fuse boxes. One inside and one under the hood. Most likely it will be in the one inside the car. Also, theres usually spare fuses in one of the boxes, so you shouldn't have to buy one. Check and make sure nothing fell into the cigarette lighter socket, like a coin for example. I've seen that countless times. When you find the fuse, pull it out with the white fuse remover located in the fuse box and put the new one in. Hope this helped! Please rate if it did!

Remote starter only allows my starter to turn over twice; needs at least 3 with my key. How to adjust to have it starter run longer on remote?


I know you are looking to have the remote starter run a third time but I would say you need to look at your Fuel Pressure Regulator on the Scion. Sounds like it is not holding fuel pressure at the fuel rail and that is why it requires a third Crank

Instructions for replacing 2005 Scion xb water pump.


It's pretty straightforward EXCEPT you must loosen the engine mount and jack the engine up about an inch to get enough clearance to get it out/in because the engine is about 1/4" too far to the passenger side. Just did my 04' and that was a hard to find piece of missing info.2_8_2013_3_15_00_am.jpg2_8_2013_3_15_22_am.jpg
