9 times out of 10 its gonna be the battery. It simply dosent have the amperage needed to turn the car over. When you hook it up to another battery it carrys the load from the two combined. I would replace it or borrow a battery from another car and see if that works. If so you got it fixed.

    This should not make the temp go up. Your looking at a thermostat, water pump , radiator or faulty temp sending unit.

My 2006 toyota solara wont start

If nothing (radio, lights, etc) is turning on when you try and start the car, then your battery is completely dead. Even if other electronic components are turning on, the battery still may be so weak that a jump start just won't do; it will have to be replaced.

Other possibilities include faulty components in the ignition system (ignition coil, distributor, etc). If something is wrong with this system, the car might not be able to transfer enough power to the spark plug to start the engine.

Bottom line: your car needs to be looked at by a professional. If you have AAA (and if you don't have it, get it), they will come and do a free battery test and can do an on-site replacement of the battery (if appropriate). Otherwise, they (or another company) can provide towing services to take your car to your preferred mechanic.

My toyota solora started by jump start but would not go into gear, what should I do?

If i understand your question correctly, your shifter is stuck in park? Hopefully that is the case, look on the top part of the shifter console, there is a little square cover. You need to pop it open and press down on the button at the same time you take the shifter out of park.

1999 Toyota Solara Unfixable Problem !!!

interesting problem, sound like a similar situation with a van i worked on for a week, turned out the alternator bracket was not grounding to the engine block, try running a ground direct from the alternator to the battery, i know it sounds farfetched but at this point trying anything is worth the effort. if this doesn't help i'll try to think of something else, its all i can think of for now

2000 Solara

When you say It wants to turn over for a second or 2, is the engine turning at all? Or, is the engine "spinning over", or "cranking" much faster than it used to. If this is the case, my experience tells me that you probably have a seized water pump, and the timing belt has either sheared off some teeth, or the timing belt has jumped time. If so, you prob just need a belt & a pump. That was the bad news...The good news is: if the belt broke/jumped time, you should have NO internal engine damage. Note: timing belts are a rather involded operation. Figure 3 hrs to take it off & replace it. Please feel free for further info if you want to undertake this job on your own. Hope this has helped.
