SOURCE: Toyota Prius starting problem

There's a known problem with the early Toyota Prius (2001 - 2003), when running the engine for a long period of time without moving or when the car is driven only for short trips (short city driving), the Prius might not start.

You have to change the original battery with a 356 CCA which is bigger because the battery is bigger you also have to change what is holding it into place.

SOURCE: Steering Problem in Toyota Prius

This violent shaking where you can stop it by holding the steering wheel in my experience is due to a BAD rack and pinion. Replace rack and that will solve this problem. Good Luck and thanks for using FIX YA

SOURCE: 2002 Toyota Prius needs new transmission

Looking at the age of the vehicle - I would not invest $5000 in it.

Look in your local business pages for second-hand parts dealers, and get a quote for small garages to do the work of replacing it.

Chances are you will find a low-milage transmission for $250, and pay around $200 to have it installed - so for $450 you're good to go again.
If this was a younger vehicle, then yes I would go through dealerships to keep the logbook perfect; But at this age it's only 3 years off it's designed lifetime, and 10 year old vehicles are very low priced.

I just bought a 2005 Prius..what are some tips for a new Prius owner? Things I need to know? Also can I turn off the beeping when in reverse?? Its annoying! Thanks


you have two coolant systems on a hybrid. both systems should of had the coolant changed (due @100k). Spark plugs should of been changed (due @120k). those re the two high mileage maintence items I would be sure were done. Toyota dealer can change the beep to a single beep instead of a constant beeping.

I have a 1998 NWH10 Toyota Prius. My problem on Start up.


Have both your battery and alternator inspected. Turn it on, disconnect your negative battery cable, if it dies, you need an alternator, if not, then you may want to test your battery for bad cells.

some other garages can diagnose this problem m8 but its not wise as there not used to the system there gonna charge about 70pound to look at it, how old is the car? it might still be under warrenty, it should not have done to much damage though.

2009 prius battery dead (we think). No lights, very dim check eng


Yes you can slowly charge the battery in the truck,but make sure the battery is disconnected first,make sure you unhook the neg first then the positive,and when reinstalling it hook the positive back up first the the negative you want absolutely no sparks.I have also had to jump start these vehicles at that battery and had the owners drive them 50+ miles and they were fine after that.For those cars it is recommended that they have to be driven or started for a length of time every day or two.I would call your local Toyota dealer and find out for sure.

Loud noise in gas engine


I am a fellow Prius owner, mine only has 8,000 miles though ;-) If I was you I'd just bite the bullet and take it to the dealer. Worst case is you're out the $100 or whatever they'd charge to diagnose the problem. You can always fix it yourself but if they do a proper diagnosis it could save you money in the long run. Does it sound like the noise is internal? You may also want to search or post at PriusChat.com, a Prius forum.p.s. Congrats on getting 189K miles on it already, these cars last a long time, I'm very happy with mine.
