Question about 1987 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

I believe I have a cold start issue. And my car will not start unless it is jumped. I even removed the battery terminals so that if there were any switches or lights that were on, it would not drain the battery and yet when I reconnect the terminals the car will not start, neither will the lights.

Battery & alternator both good, but wont start without jump off, atleast once a day.


Your battery will not be "good" if you can jump start the car from another power source. If it is a 2014 model it will be the original battery.

Unless you have tested the cold cranking amps the battery is producing you cannot say if it will turn the starter motor or not. A good battery would kick the starter motor over. If you can jump start the car by connecting another power source to the battery terminals it will not be a wiring issue either.

If it's a 2014 it should still be covered by new car warranty (but not if the problem is just a failed battery which is subject to the applicable battery warranty)./

How do I replace the starter?


The fact that it starts when you jump it makes me believe it is not the started. I think a dirty, loose, or bad battery cable connection -- or it could be a bad battery cable itself.

My 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited has a new battery but won't start. When I try to jump start it, it just makes a clicking sound but won't start.


Most likely you have a bad connection somewhere. Trace the battery cables and clean/tighten all terminals or try jumping to a different lug. You might also try removing the starter and jumping directly to the starter to verify that it is good.

Im having problems with my wifes 1999 silhouette Oldsmobile. It will starts fine atleast 35% to 40% of the time. But on those other occasions I have to jump it to get it to start. Iv checked battery an...


Batterys are rated by their cold cranking amps even if it test good its how it performs by giving a load. the voltage may be good but the amps (the strength) of the battery may be weak, check the terminals high corrosion can be lurking in the cable or terminal, you say you dont have to hook it for more than a second it sound like a bad battery terminal

Will not start, but will turn over


If you are able to get a jump start, that would really narrow the field for troubleshooting.
If it doesn't jump start you are likely looking at an electrical issue, ( coil pack, distributor, etc. ),
if it will jump start it could be one of the following.

1. Bad connection on battery terminals, ( remove and clean, even if they don't look bad )
2. Not enough , " Cold cranking amps ", battery rating. ( this usually isn't a problem til it's cold out.)
3. MAF, " mass air flow " sensor. This can cause an engine not to start.

I hope this helps you

2000 chevy malibu stalls out while driving and would cut off once the car has started and when it does start the idle would be at a three i was told it was a remote sensor


ITS ACTUALLY a cold start issue There are several things that few people know about starting cars in cold weather. 1. Check your battery to make sure it is not rusted, leaking, and has a charge 2. Jump start your battery with another car, even if you believe the battery is good, this often times will still start your car. 3. If your engine is cold, and you have an older car, ensure to get your fuel lines to the engine flushed or have fuel injection service performed 4. The engine tends to warp the same way wood does during the extreme cold, do not be afraid to continue trying to warm up the engine by constant cranks with it is cold out. Your not going to hurt the car, the worse that could happen is too much fuel will enter the carborator and cause flooding in the system to occur. Wait 20 minutes if this happens and start to crank again 5. Bad spark plugs are a major reason why many cars take a very long time to start 6. Please have your spark plugs removed and exchanged for new ones. Over time, spark plugs become fowled and prevent the car from starting even thou you hear cranking!!!

Jason, please check for a kill switch, battery power left in the battery, and check your battery TERMINALS, THEY become corroded and fail to work in bad weather!

I believe the starter has gone out on my 2003 Nissan Frontier. We left for 5 days over Christmas and when we returned it wouldn't start. I charged battery, tried to jump it, etc. My experience is that if...


If it only clicks then you either have dirty battery terminals ( remove and clean them ) or the starter is bad. Providing you tested the battery with a tester and it passed.

Jump start


The battery "jumper terminals" are in the engine bay on the right side. You have to remove the black steel cover plate by removing the 3 screws, then you'll find the terminals. The positive terminal is marked red, unless your previous owner has resprayed the engine bay.
Be careful if you are 'jumping' the battery; the power source has to be even. If you can not use a boost pack and have to use jump leads from another car, make sure the other car engine is switched off - you can damage the management system
