If it is happening more frequently in cold or damp weather it could be a spark issue. Wet or damp weather can effect spark plug wires if there is even minor damage to them (usually occurs durring rain). The other things that come to mind are the fuel pump and lastly the fuel line check ball that is in the fuel tank. If it is leaking then all the fuel in the line will drain back into the tank over night (pressure lost in the fuel line) and this will cause repeated, extended cranking when you first start the car in the morning or after the car has sat for several hours.

What does the map sensor do on 1994 geo prisim


new spark wires. old wires hate, cold damp weather.
spark plugs, cap,rotor wires, try the 60k mile tuneup. per the opr.guide.

the map is ok.
and to test a map you need the graph and you need to compensate for altitude and local weather (barometer readings) to correct what you see.

2002 corolla won't start in cold weather, just clicking sound,tried charging battery, but still same


Batteries, when cold, are not able to provide anything near their rated power output. Engines, when cold, require much more torque to turn over than when warm. Starters, when cold, require much more current to operate. Older batteries have less reserve starting power. Battery chargers will restore voltage levels, over time, but are not the same as a battery or "jump start". Add it up. Cold motor hard to turn over. Cold starter demanding more power to run itself, plus even more to turn cold motor. Battery at its weakest due to cold. Chances are the battery needs replacement.

My 2005 Toyota Corolla (CE) won't start in cold temps. IT'S NOT THE BATTERY! When the temp warms up it starts. If the headlights are on when the key is turned, they do not dim. I think it is the starter,...


You could be right, it may not be the battery, but something to consider.
In cold weather the damand on the battery to turn and start the engine is much higher than in warm weather.

Often people buy a replacement battery without knowing what the minimum, "cold cranking amps," rating is for their car. And often there's no sign of any problem. But, when the weather turns cold not having the minimum cold cranking amps is now a problem.

Just as a procautionary measure, you could read the cold cranking amps rating on your battery, and then call any parts store to see what battery is called for as a replacement. This could prove very helpful.

Something else that may be helpful to you.

1. You could check on your battery to see if it is a maintenance free battery.
If it's not maintenance free, you should have the levels in your battery checked. If the levels are low it will prevent the alternator from charging the battery up to its peak level.

I hope this helps.

I have a 1992 toyota 4wd 3l that has been starting really hard especially on cold mornings. i cleaned the cold start injector and changed the timmer but it still does it. can anyone help? thanks rick


Check your battery for proper volts (12.6). Sometimes the cold weather will bring a battery down. Also check the Starter Relay, again cold weather will make it stick causing it not to start. Those are the biggest problems with a car not starting in the cold weather unless you have something else going on then your starter and your ignition needs to be checked.

1999 Corolla CE ~150k miles...When attempting to start the car, only in very cold temperatures (T<50*F), the engine has difficulty turning over and will start with a loud unidentifiable engine noise. ...


the car doesnt come with a timing belt, it has a 10 year worry free, internal timing chain, but it sounds like either your battery or starter, cold weather causes the electric flow to slow down, take your battery in to see if its ok, then check your starter. good luck and hope this helps

I have a 1996 Toyota Corolla that won't start


Radio and lights can work with weak battery, too weak to turn starter.

Noise when shutting off maybe dieseling due to fuel mixture too rich or timing off.

When you say car won't start do you mean starter turns but engine does not start, or do you mean starter does not turn.
