My Camry sometimes won't start nor crank either.


Could be a battery cable connection, faulty starter, or the neutral safety switch. You would need to know if you have battery power at the starter terminals when it fails to crank.

I have a 2001 alero with a manual transmission. My battery is dead and I am wondering if I can jump start it or will the security system not allow it? I tied it once but it didnt start.


You should be able to jump start it, make sure that your battery cables are tightly connected to that battery. Then hook up that positive battery cable on the car that is running then the positive on the battery you are jump starting then hook up the negative cable on the car running then the negative to the dead car. If your connections are good when you hook up the last connection you should be able to see a little spark, and hear a hissing or popping noise. Leave it hooked up for at least 5 minutes before you try and crank it. If it then cranks and then just clicks you need a better connection between the jumper cables. If you get nothing it might be your starter if you are getting headlights, and a radio working. If nothing works there is a bad wire somewhere.

1987 Ford F150 makes a hissing sound when applying the brakes. The braking seems to work. Someone said it means master cylinder is going out.


Hissing is more associated with a failing brake booster. Since it uses manifold vacum developed by the running engine, you will hear a hiss as the engine tries to restore the lost vacum.

I have a 51 plate ford fiesta that has not started since the cold weather we have had. It makes a clicking noise on ignition and the dashboard lights up but the car will not start. do you know what is...


I would try and jump start the car -- it sounds like the battery might be bad or low on voltage ( due to the cold or age ). if jumping the car works - make sure you test to make sure the alternator is charging properly.
plus this also could be a bad soleniod or starter motor --- but try the jump start first or a new battery.

Engine is making hissing sound.


That hissing could be a vaccuum system leak, have youe tried pinpointing the sound from under the hood?
