Help needed with MR2 starter problem

I've been having a strange problem with my starter on my 86 MR2. When I started it up first thing in the morning and drove less than a mile to the corner store on my way to work, it started up just fine. After being in the store for only a minute or two, I got back in the car and tried to start it again, but nothing happened. No sound from the starter at all. The dash lights came on when I turned the key, so I know the battery didn't suddenly take a hike. After I sat there for a couple of minutes, and tried to start it a few times with no luck, the starter suddenly kicked in as if there nothing wrong with it. When I got to work, I turned the car off and tried to start it again, and it worked just fine. I couldn't duplicate the problem. This has happened several times since, but it only happens when I make a very short trip after the car's been sitting a while. Any ideas? Thanks in advance for your help.

    Could be voltage drop to starter.

    Try turning on ignition and put high blower fan speed on for 30 second alon with headlamps and then try and duplicate he problem.

    If this makes it fail to start you may want to fit a starter relay.

Your starter is going out. toyota's are bad about getting a dead spot in the starter.

My mr2 86 doesn't crank


Make sure you have a good battery/connections. Make sure you have power down to the starter on the B+ terminal if not replace faulty wire or clean/dirty connectionson ensure connections are tight. While someone turns the key make sure you have power in the S terminal. If power make sure the engine isn't locked up and replace the starter. If no power you may have an issue with the ignition switch circuit (stitch, wiring, fuses....)

1996 plymouth grand voyager wont start


It could be a number of thing's , wouldn't think the battery cables or connections . If they were bad it would have started in the first place . Timing belt ! There again , it wouldn't start in the first place . The crank sensor would not have anything to do with the starter spinning the engine over . The fuel pump will only run for two seconds when the key is first turned on , this is to prime the fuel system ! The fuel pump will not be turned on again untill the engine is cranking , or running . The fuel pump is controlled by the PCM - engine computer through a relay (fuel pump relay) Samething for the starter control , has a relay . Testing for control of the relay ,.at the relay ! In the under hood fuse / relay box ! Find the starter motor relay an pull it out an look on the bottom , you will see four sets of numbers . 30 , 87 & 85 , 86 . 30 should have B+ volt , testing with a volt meter . 87 goes down to the starter solenoid . If you take a piece of 12 gage wire an jump these two spots in the fuse / relay box , the starter will engage if the battery , cables an the starter are good ! The other two 85 & 86 are the contol side of the relay .86 should have B+ voltage an 85 goes to the PCM , where it will supplie a ground IF ,there are no problems with the park neutral safety switch . Or also if your vehicle has a anti-theft system an no problems ! Also your vehicle has a relay called a ASD - auto shut down relay , this relay powers up a lot of systems on your vehicle , i would also check it , Relays do good bad .

Clutch help!!!!


Every clutch has a "throw-out bearing", and the proper term is Release bearing.

You should purchase a good quality complete clutch kit, and make sure that the clutch kit also comes with the pilot bearing as well. Be sure that they re-machine your flywheel to restore proper clutch operation.

Here is a link for you check out for yourself, and you can see that the release bearing and pilot bearing are both included in these clutch kits. You should then be able to purchase a new clutch kit from your local parts store.

Diagram of pullies and belts on 86 toyota mr2


If you are talking the a/c pulley and alternator pulley, I am pretty sure the belts are different sizes (different number of ribs in the belt). So, you can just look carefully at the ribs and put the right belt on the right pully. from memory, the A/C belt goes on first and all the pullies towards the front of the car are used for that belt. The Alternator belt goes on next, and all the pullies from the crank shaft toward the back of the car (from the crank pulley) go to that. I could have those reversed, but the ribs on the belt will show you for sure. have fun!

Head gasket was leaking on my 86 mr2 Replaced the


Check all the wiring connections that you loosened or took off when you removed the head. something is loose or disconnected ,eg., ground wires .
Make sure you have spark at spark plugs whemn cranking ,and fuel pressure.
Did you try spraying starting-fluid in the intake, see if the engine runs for a little bit.
Compression to be anything above 100 psi will firean engine ,sometimes lower too.

Try spraying starter fluid into the throttlebody...if it starts or fires, your fuel pump is bad. It will cost something around the $300-$400 mark to replace. Hope this helps!
