Question about Cars & Trucks
1. I think I need to clean the startering contacts for the starting system, where do I start, how do I clean them and where do I find them at? 2. My car will not start when it seems to be rained on a bunch or a little bit. I guess it is the starter, maybe not? I have electrical power completely across the car and if ready to start, sometimes it will NOT start in the rain. And some times it will. When it wont start, I have to try a few times and wait about 15 minutes for the car to then start. Mostly when it is dry outside it starts the first time, every time. The rain seems to be the issue, what do I do? 3. Or perhaps, do I need a new starter and are they easy for a beginner to replace it for themselves? What special tools do I need to rent/buy?
If you are having problems with starting during humid weather, might want to check your spark plug wires and distributor, if you do not have electronic ignition system.
Based on the description you give, most likely it is not the starter. When you turn the key, does your engine turn over ? If yes, then you can rule out the starter. If no, then with the help of someone have them turn over the key and check for power at the starter and see if you are getting power to starter and solenoid.
