Why might a Toyota not crank when it gets cold?
the engine might freeze over

Answer . \nMany things can cause this symptom. \n. \nA little problem on this car is that corrosion builds up inside the distributor cap and on the rotor. Remove the bo…lts holding on the cap with an 8mm socket or screwdriver. If there are heavy deposits of white corrosion on the 4 spark plug contacts they can be scrapped clean with a knife or the cap simply replaced. If replacing the cap, be sure to remove the wires carefully by twisting them out.\n. \nOf course any of the common problems such as old spark plugs or wires, clogged air filter, etc, can be a probem.\n. \nThe 1983 through 1985 camrys all have an auxiliary fuel injector called a cold start injector designed to make starting easier. It can become clogged and fail to operate, or the the sensor that activates it can fail. This injector is located above the fuel rail and goes directly into the intake manifold. Under normal running conditions the cold start injector gets no voltage. It is energized only when starting and the engine temp is well below 95 degrees F. There is also an auxialliary air valve designed to admit more air during starting and warmup. It is located at the left side of the engine where the heater hoses come out. See a repair manual for locations of these items.
It's not easy. In my case the biggest problem was keeping the engine from turning while putting over 1000 ft-lbs of torque on it, to get it off. I ended up having to make my o…wn tool. If you've got more money than time, or you're without the proper tools (lathe and mill), it's probably worth it to just buy the Special Service Tool from Toyota. Unfortunately the balancer doesn't have any large holes through it, through which you could jam a large screwdriver or whatever. And all you have to grip on is the 3/8" tall "spokes" that run from the center to the outside, through which the two puller holes go. But I like working with metal, so here's what I did: I used my lathe to create a ring out of 1/4" plate steel, whose outside diameter is small enough to fit within inside diameter of the balancer, and whose inside diameter was big enough to accommodate the pulley bolt and its socket. Then cut a 3/4" bar of steel square stock long enough to fit the outside diameter of the ring. I used my mill to cut a slot in the bar along it's long side, wide enough accommodate the "spokes". Then I welded the bar onto inside of the ring (the side that contacts the balancer), with the slot facing toward the balancer, to fit over the spokes. Then I used the lathe again to cut the middle out of the bar. (I did this because I worried that if I cut the bar and welded the two pieces on separately, I'd never get it to line up properly on both sides of the ring.) Then I drilled two holes through the ring and the bar, to fit the two bolts from the harmonic balancer puller. You have to measure these carefully and get them straight - have to use a drill press or a mill - or you'll never get them to line up. I then welded a piece of square tubing onto the outside of the ring. I used the bolts from my harmonic balancer puller to bold the thing on (the bolts were too long so I had to make some spacers out of round tubing), put a steel bar through the tubing on the outside of the ring so the crank wouldn't turn. I then had to use a breaker bar with an 8 foot cheater pipe to get it off. I estimate I had to put around 1000 foot pounds of torque on the bolt to get it to crack loose. Which is strange because the service manual says to torque it to 159 ft-lbs.
Your 1996 Toyota rav 4 crank positioning sensor might be out in the car and you wanted to know how locate and test?
On a 1996 Toyota Rav 4, the crank positioning sensor is locatedunder the hood. It is a thin, black cord that will be located nearthe lower front engine. In order to test the s…ensor to ensure it isworking correctly you can take it to one of your local auto stores.A few of the stores names are as follows: Advance Auto, Pep Boys,and Jiffy lube. This would be your best and safest bet to have thesensor tested.
Answer . There could be various reasons. The starter could be going out. The Alternator, the fuel pump. If it is a manuel car it could also be fuses behind the clutch
It is on the lower right hand side of the bottom part of the timing cover, with a wire that leads up towards the alternator with a quick disconnect clip. You can use this wire… to check the ohms on the sensor before you start the job of replacement. you must remove both top and bottom timing belt covers to replace the sensor which means pulling the top torque motor mount and the crank shaft pulley, I recommend that I you are going to go this far on the 2.2 motor, I suggest that you replace the timing belt, oil pump seal and front main crank shaft seal while you are in there a new belt is around 40 bucks and the seal kit "TCS 45920" is about 15 bucks and to have a shop do it is about 450-500 bucks there are may youtube videos you can watch on how to do it but make sure you get a book on the procedure to check your work, any shop will tell you they have to bill for 6 hours, I did the job in 3 and I have never done this job before. its not that hard if you do your homework
What might be causing a loud rumbling vibration near the engine when you start up a 1996 Toyota Corolla especially when the sound is worse in the cold?
bad engine mout....i had same on a 1994 corolla
\n. \n. \nIn order for a bike to start it must have 3 things, \n. \nAIR\n. \nThe easiest is checking to make sure the air filter is clean and that there are no obstruction…s between airbox and carb.\n. \nFUEL\n. \nDump the old gas and premix a gallon of fresh gas. Next pull your fuel line off of carb and turn petcock on to ensure you have gas going into the carb. It wouldn't hurt to pull the carb off and give it a good cleaning at this point. Be sure to pull your main and idle jets out and clean them and make sure you can blow through them before reassembling.\n. \nSPARK\n. \nCheck the spark at the plug. If there is no spark, check your plug cap (cheap fix) first, if that is not it go on to your stator.
The definition of the Cold-Cranking Amperage (CCA) of an automotive battery is the amount of current a given battery can deliver for 30 seconds at zero (0) degrees F without d…ropping below a specified cutoff voltage (manufacturer-specific, but usually 10.5 volts).
it has no crankshaft sensor
Eyther use the glow plug cycle time more or get a block heater for the water to keep it a warmer temp.
cold cranking amps is the rating on a car battery- the higher the number of cca the stronger the starting power of the battery
Need more info vehicle getting enough fuel, air or ignition. Fuel pump maybe bad, Air intake system has no leaks, Ignition system working properly. Just need more info
I have a 1993 corolla and the battery is 390CCA. Some car batteryselectors I've used recommend 320 - 350 CCA batteries.
In Toyota Camry
Thermostat is stuck open.
In Toyota SR5
fule filter needs replacing
In Toyota Camry
They need to be at 700 cca. I recently had my battery changed and te AAA guy said that I had the wrong size battery in the car (I had 600 cca).
