When the key is in the ignition, It won't go back to the Run position from the start position causing a grinding sound to happen.

Sounds like a bad spring in the ignition cylinder or the ignition switch itself isn't returning the key and switch to the Run position as it should. Most any auto repair facility can check and replace the switch for you. Note that the ignition lock cylinder (where you put the key in and turn) is NOT the switch. The switch is connected by a linkage up to the lock cylinder. The cylinder moved the linkage and the linkage moves the switch.

It would not hurt to squirt some WD-40 or other spray lubricant in the lock cylinder to see if that resolves the problem. Don't use lithium grease though, only use a light lubricating oil spray, and don't go crazy with it. Just a couple of squirts.

Horrible engine knock in 1995 toyota celica

Check for oil pressure.Check the compression in each cylinder.
Yank the valve cover to see if the camshaft is actually turning during cranking mode,only.
Disable the fuel pump or disable the spark(fuel disable preferred)
The engine may have "eaten" something it shouldn't.
A valve may be broken off inside the cylinder head.
Usually an exhaust valve.

Aerial has stopped working

It sounds like your aerial mechanism is worn out ,or needs lubricating ,if you can get to it open the casing and add a finger full of petroleum jelly this should be ample lubricant and you may have to physically move the aerial down ward to get it to work again .

Electric aerial on 1998 Toyota Celica

The grinding noise means that the gear in the motor slides over the retracting shaft, you will probably need to get a new one.

I have just bought a lovely mazda 323F (s reg) however the electric aerial won't go up even though the motor (and the stereo) appears to be working. I have put some WD40 on it, is there anything else I can...

Does the antenna motor make any sound when you turn on the radio? (you should be able to hear it when it goes up and down. If you hear nothing, the antenna motor should be checked, as it may have burned out. If you hear something, the gears have probably stripped, so the motor runs, but won't extend and retract the antenna. countrycurt0
