Please Help, Camry Won't start

12 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

I have a 2010 Toyota Camry automatic.

I tried to start the car several time this morning, but it wont start.

you can hear the car trying to start but it wont start.

while trying to start the car, the furthest icon on the left of the dashboard with the dripping oil icon glows red. 

However when i checked the dipstick it shows around 80% oil left

any idea why my Camry isn't starting?

thanks guys

Winter is coming. It could be the battery low on charge etc. If possible, try to jump start the vehicle.

Just did a quick Google search and some posts referred to cleaning the throttle body and also the throttle position sensor.

This is completely normal, oil pressure lights etc stay on during cranking and only go off after the engine is running and the oil pump is generating pressure.

First step, battery.

Is it charged?

Are the terminals on correctly?

Does it have the correct level of electrolyte?

How old is it?

What exactly happens when you attempt to start it? Does it make clicking noise or wind very slowly?

Provide a video if you have the means.

He said he can hear the car trying to start (cranking?) so it isn't battery related, it's either fuel or ignition.

To rule out fuel, remove the air intake and spray some Start Ya Bast*rd into the throttle body to see if it will start. If it does it means your fuel pump is gone and if not then it's ignition related; plugs, coil packs, crank position sensor etc

Trying to start can mean a lot of things.

There is not enough info to rule the battery out yet.

Yep, battery Aziz ! I know ppl who kill their battery in 1 year due to neglect, car needs to be driven pretty much every day for say 20-30 minutes to charge it sufficiently. If you can get it jump started you will know.

Sounds like the starter is clicking due to low voltage. Battery age is not too important, but they can definitely fail after 2 years.

Try jump starting or changing the battery.
