On my 1998 Toyota Corolla, after it starts and runs fine..you turn the key off and it will not start again without a jump. After a quick jump it starts right away. The battery is only a year old. Is it the starter or alternator?

Check for loose battery terminals. Car will not start without jump because battery is not connected properly. Starter is probably good or car would not start with or without jump. If alternator is bad and not producing current, car would die after running a short while as battery would out of juice and without alternator current the car would die - so probably alternator is good. If connections are all good, get a voltmeter and test the battery voltage - it should be over 12.75 volts. If not, battery is not holding charge.

My 1993 Toyota Corolla stalls and will not stay running.


If changing the battery does not solve problem, or only solves it until the battery dies then have the alternator tested. I have noticed on several occasions with a couple of my vehicles that at times of very high moisture in the air they do not stay running, once the humidity goes down they are fine.

I have an 03 Toyota Corolla "S" and it was running fine then an hour later I go out to start it and it don't start. All you hear is the fuel pump and just one click. Whats wrong?


sounds like your starter is going bad. check the battery connections first. make sure they are tight with no corrosion. Maybe your battery is getting weak. try a jump start. You can have both tested at most auto parts stores.
