Could be a bad connection at the positive or negative terminals of the battery. I had this problem on my 1997 Cadillac Deville where it would click, or do nothing, and if I toggled the starter through the ignition switch, then it would start on the third or fourth or fifth try.

I thought it was the security system, but it turned out that wire brushing the connectors at the battery (after they were removed) solved the problem beautifully.

Honda HRV overheated on motorway. When i allowed the engine to cool down and tried to restart, it wont turnover. Even with a jumpstart.


If you cannot turn the crankshaft then it is a very good possibility that the motor is seized up. Source a replacement from the wreckers or an engine reconditioning shop or a lap engine importer as these engines are normally low mileage units and in good condition.

Fan belt was tightened, now wont start on first turnover,will start on prolonged second turnover. 00 range rover 2.5 dse


No, no timing adjustment should even be considered. Maybe the belt is too tight. Have the tensioner pulley checked, if this is a serpentine belt.
You might try loosening it just a bit, if possible, and see if previous performance returns.

1995 toyota celica starts up when cold and will run until i get wherever i need to go. Then if i shut off and try to restart it doesnt make any clicking noise and wont try to turnover until cold.


So when your engine is hot the starter won't engage. Try cleaning and tightening the wires that are bolted to your starter first. You want bare shiny metal to metal at all your connections. Take care when unbolting the wires because you could strip or break the studs on the solenoid. If this doesn't help then I would say the solenoid is going bad and will need to be replaced. It's usually a good idea to replace the starter and solenoid as one unit. Hope this helps.

While engine off wont shift into second or third was told may be synchronizer


It may or may not have a synchronizer problem, but if the only symptom is the fact you can't get it into second or third when the motor is not turning then it's a non-issue. You should only leave it in first or reverse for parking, there's no need to try to put it in second or third. If it shifts properly with the motor turning then what more can you want?
