You need to start with the battery. It should be load tested to verify that it's good or not. You can take it to a auto parts store to be tested, usually for free.

Hello All - I'm hoping someone here can give me a few ideas. My 92 toyota celica st has sit for about 5 days - for the last 3 days the temp outside has been in the single digits. Went to go start today and...


You can try this.
Turn on the key and listen for the fuel pump to prime.
It will sound like a gentle hum. when it stops, turn the key off. wait a few seconds and do it again. Do this three or four times, but don't try to start it. after the third or fourth time you turn it off, try to start it. It may not be priming the fuel injectors fast enough.

Car wont start


If it has been sitting for 3 years it could be a number of things. First thing to try is a good tune up (plugs, wires, oil change, air filter, and fuel filter). If the plugs have fouled out they are not getting enough spark to burn the fuel. Also if the fuel itself has turned, you should try to drain the tank, this is not feasible at times and can be substituted by adding as much fresh gas as possible and a can of Octane boost/ Gas drier. SeaFoam is what I would recommend (found at your local autoparts store. If you have over half a tank of gas that has been sitting that long, you will need to find a way to drain what is in it. There are a few tricks to doing this without dropping the gas tank or sucking it out with a garden hose. Try the tune up first though.

1992 prelude si - battery/alternator prob?


if you can charge the battery and drive it for a while then sounds like the altenator has failed and is not re-charging the battery, good way to test is to charge the battery, start the car and turn the light on, if everything is dimm or the motor dies there is little to no charge voltage, and will require altenator work

93 prelude si transmission trouble


As the commenter said, check if the tranny fluid is full. A clear pink or red is best, a dirty brown or cloudy color is probably trouble. It's a '93- it is 24 years old, everything wears out eventually. I'm as old as the hills myself, and I can't run anymore. Start looking for a replacement transmission, or have a transmission shop diagnose it. Unless you are attached to the car, don't let them talk you into a new transmission-the cost may be more than the car is worth. You might want a used unit- try to get ANY kind of warranty-even 30 days is better than nothing. If it lasts beyond 30 days without a problem, it might go another 24 years---pshaw! not really.
