Question about 1989 Toyota Cressida

1 Answer

Hi, I have a 1989 Toyota cressida. It has 100,000 miles on it and it drives wonderfully! Today I went to start the car and the car did not start. Lights and radios came on, but it would not start. I then went and tried again and there are no lights or radio. the battery was replaced in 20004. Could it be the alternate? And how would I know? Thanks!

First you will have to get a boost. Something is obviously draining the battery and you will have to find out what it is. The battery may be bad, (7 years old) or it might not be charging,( alternater) or something is draining it when it's shut off, and that could be anything from a light, to the starter.

Where had you checked spark first? Is the distributor turning? This can be checked by removing the distributor cap and making sure the shaft is turning as the engine cranks. Have you checked that there is spark at the plugs? The ignition coil could be weak and still produce some spark but not enough to start the engine. Be cautious of all rotating belts and pulleys around the engine while working under the hood.

You have not indicated the mileage the transmission has done so I will guess it is over 130,000 miles.

At anything over about 110000 miles you can expect the transmission to die and require replacement. From the symptoms you have described, and assuming the transmission fluid was at the minimum operating level, the auto transmission unit will need to be replaced.
