I have a Hilux SW4 2.8 diesel from 1995. It always has problems starting but they seem to be different over time. When I turn the key the first time to ''Start'', the headlights stay very bright, but the voltage at the cigarette lighter goes to zero and the starter motor does absolutely nothing. If I immediately try again, the starter turns strongly and the motor starts immediately. However, when the engine is hot after a short drive, the problem gets worse. So first key turn, nothing, then the

Difficulty starting Replaced battery in June '08 a few weeks later an intermittent problem started where at times when the key is turned it just clicks like battery is dead. Turn key 4 or 5 times and it starts. Friend said it might be the "cyllanoid" (sp?). Does that sound like what it might be and if so is the cyllanoid and the starter encased on this model or is it separate where we can just replace the cyllanoid? Thanks, I have 3 kids and don't want to get stranded.

For the last five years that I have owned my 2004 Chevy Impala I have had problems with it not wanting to start at certain times, usually and mostly during the summer months, but not all the time.

Toyota Tercel 92. Manual transmission. When I turn the ignition key, not every single time but most of the time, I hear a single, hard clunk. Starter problem? Also, recently I had my car not starting at all after engine being hot. E.g it always starts when engine is cold but won't start again -after a short stop-when engine's hot. I have a lot of juice in my battery -almost new- and when I turn the ignition key on I can hear the click so wouldn't be the spark plugs either. Could this be soleno

Ok, I have a 98 escort Zx2. Occassionally when I go out to start in the morning it doesnt seem to want to turn over. I have to turn the Key many times for the engine to turn over and start.

My 1994 Honda Accord is stalling after starting and running for a few minutes. I have had a problem of the car wanting to stall out or heave and act like it wanted to die while driving in normal conditions. Usually this happened after shifting into another gear and giving gas to it--other times you would turn the car off to go into a store and come out and it would turn over but not start. We took one of the plug wires out and tried to start it and there was no spark UNTIL the car turned over (u

2001 tacoma v6 doesn't want to start when hot. I can start it by pressing the gas at the right time. The problem is that it cranks differently. not as hard and kind of "skips". give it a half hour or more to cool, and it turns over like it always has. Seems to be getting worse. I'm starting to have problems in the morning now as well. hard to explain, but it sounds and feels different. If it starts when hot without giving it gas, it idles low and rough for a few seconds and dies.

But if I run it few km and turn off, again start it and run for some more km by doing so When I start it 3rd-4th time after short intervals without letting engine cool, car stops picking acceleration and its idling goes down and car start turning off automatically.
