Check the cap and rotor on the distributor. Make sure the tip of the rotor is clean and the inside contacts of the cap are clean also.

Why won;t my 1982 toyota tercel start


Is it driven daily? Has it been sitting? The more information posted, the better. With this information.....out of fuel, blown fuse, fuel pump, timing belt, fuel filter, dead battery, etc. Does it turn over? Does it try to start but don't? Does it start and die?

1997 toyota tercel has brand new starter in it but when I turn key to start it the starter keeps trying to star even with the engine running, when I turn car off and take key out it still continues to


Hello Theresa Honeycutt,

There is an easily explainable configuration that would cause your dilemma on OLD FASHION 4 connection (two big posts & two small gauge wire posts) starter SOLENOIDS...

1997 Tercel is 3 wire (can't happen)

Technically what you are describing is not possible as a USER MISTAKE because the TOYOTA solenoid only has THREE Battery TERMINALS showing.

It is a MANUFACTURING DEFECT.

YOU will need to return the starter as DEFECTIVE and get another one..

Fault: The primary winding of the ("s" lead on classic drawings ... "st1" lead on the 1997 Tercel) has a DIRECT SHORT to the output battery (starter motor side) of the main battery source (internal solenoid defect).

There should be ABSOLUTELY no continuity between the large posts (battery & motor) and the ST1 terminal WITHOUT THE STARTER switch ("st1") momentary contact being energized.

Then inspect the Ring gear on the vehicle to assure no
GEAR TEETH have been broken off in the previous melee... (Serious job... hope not).

Use the BBB Industries FREE wiring diagrams to trace your "starter wire" (registration required: proprietary documents).

!997 Toyota Tercel runs good if push started, but cannot get vehicle to start with key. suspect electrical


There are 2 possible reason for this:
1- The battery is weak. Solution:s Need to charge it fully.
2- The starter solenoid get corroded due to arcing after a period of time causing high resistance, so current can't follow enough to feed the starter. Solution: Replace the solenoid. Here how it looks:

Oil capacity


You can easily determine capacity by changing the oil, with filter. After adding three quarts, start and run the engine, then carefully fill it 'till it is full. Wait at least one minute between each time you add more oil so it has time to drain into the pan. When it reads full you will know the exact amount needed. Write it down and know it forever!! Offhand I believe it's closer to four than three.

Toyota Tercel won`t start in the morning !


Pull a spark plug first. If its wet with fuel then most likely you have an issue with ignition. If its dry then I would look at your fuel system.
