SOURCE: timing belt toyota hilux 2000 broken

More than likely you have some bent valves which can lead to alot of money to fix. If you can do it yourself try to find a wrecked one or one with a bad bottom end and just get there cylinder heads and put on your motor with a new timing belt.

Citroen will not start

Hi my other half run our citreon picasso out of fuel on the motorway last week, I got 2 x cans of fuel and put into car, but battery went flat due to hazzard lights being on. I have charged the battery and tried starting it but it just winds over and will not start. I have tried towing it also but still no joy. Can someone tell me if the fuel pump primes when you turn ignition on as I cannot hear it if it does. Where is fuel pump located. Many thanks in advance Gerry

you should not have to prime the fuel pump. just install it and turn your ignition key to the start position. You may have to turn the ignition key several times but once it starts, the car should start normally after that.

Have fully charged battery but car will not start. It will start if I get a jump start from another car battery.

What size jumper leads would I need to jump start a toyota hilux 2.8 deiesl

For a fast jump start......the bigger the better. Otherwise just let the battery build up for awhile.

Even putting in a good battery temporary for start. After it's warm it may start OK on the old one

Sounds more like fuel pump. No residual pressure for start up and high resistance in motor windings to keep it pumping.
Get a pressure tester hook it up to schrader valve on fuel rail before cranking and measure residual pressure. Next crank engine and let it run and see what running pressure is. Compare it to spec's.
Quest way to check pump is to put key in ignition turn just to on position .You should hear the pump buzz.

In my 06 Chevy Equinox I went to put the key in the ignition and the ignition wouldnt turn to start the car up?

**** the steering wheel hard side to side. That should release the interlock. Otherwise the ignition switch is worn (unusual in a 06 car unless it's an awful lot of stop and go driving).

if you are trying to prime the oil system, simply pull off the the primary ignition coil wire, or if it doesn't have one, remove the wiring harness going to the coil, turn the motor over for about 15 seconds, and go from there. To prime the fuel system, simply turn the ignition switch to the on position, wait 2 seconds, turn it off, wait two seconds and turn it back on again, do this about five times, and the fuel system will prime itself.
