    When I pull down on the lever for the steering wheel to be pulled down it will then start. A man where I get oil changes said to do this cuz there is a linkage from this to the starter. I want to know what the problem is and what to get fixed so they don't charge me for repairs that are not needed.

First of all "THERE IS NO LINKAGE TO THE STARTER AT THE LEVER THAT YOU ARE REFERING TO" No such thing. Its all electronic.So tell this guy to stop blowing smoke. Sound to me like you have a problem with the ignition switch. Not the switch itself, but the white round cylinder at the end of the ignition assembly. There is a whole bunch of wires (red, green, black with yellow stripe etc.) at the end of the ignition swithc assembly. That switch unscrews from the ignition assembly. Sound to me like you need to check that area and possibly replace that switch. Switch costs about $50. That's where I would look. By you moving the lever to lower the steering down, you must move something under there to make the car start and that something is those wires coming out of that switch. Its white and about2 inches round with harness coming out of it thats about 7 inches long. Good luck and let me know what you find.

I have a 95 maxima it was running but it just stopped starting. We thought it was the battery so we replaced it and still click, click click. so next we replaced the starter and now all i get is a CLICK...

Couple of other things to check!
1. Check the fuel pump.
2. Check for all related fuses....fuel pump,ignition,battery etc
3. Check for spark from ignition coil...if no spark present ,could be crank sensor faulty(located on the side housing of the timing belt) or the knock sensor located the same side at the bottom below large belt pulley....

Sometimes it starts, sometimes it needs to get hammered!

I think I'd replace the battery cables, starter solenoid, both inexpensive and dumb question... any chance starter has bad connection where it is bolted to block. If it's not getting a good clean connection it can lose continuity. Good luck.

96 Maxima wont start all the time

that sounds like you may need to replace the starter. the click you hear is the solenoid. the part that is just as important is the starter motor. unfortunately they are sold as one

have you checked to see if the alternator is working? If it isn't the battery is being drained. You may have lights and all but the cranking power is drained therefore you don't have enough juice to start it. So check the alternator and if possible do an obd 2 scan at autozone or advance auto

Check power and ground to starter motor with circuit loaded (ie. attempting to start) If these are good then replace starter motor.

95 F150 wont crank

the starter should be replaced. The solenoid is kikcing the pinion out but there is no contact being made to turn the starter motor. I have the exact same truck and before i changed the starter used the old starter tap trick. Tap the starter casing with a hammer and it should start turning again. hope this was helpful for you. Good luck.
