    Default problems starting

    help please i have a 2000 tundra with 139,000 k on it and some times it doesnt want to turn over. battery is new i cleaned all connections at the battery . when i turn the key i can hear the relay click( in the fuse box in the engine compartment) and the throttle position set but no starter turn. after trying multiple times something finally catches and the motor will turn over and start.

    Could maybe be the brushes in the starter are worn, just a thought.

    double check all the connection, especially on the pos battery terminal. my truck did the same thing. replaced the starter with a reman and it continued. come to find out it was the contacts or the plunger on the stater motor its self plus the loose wing nut on the pos teriminal. had a brand new one put on and it has worked since.

    after reading past threads about simular starting problems i was pretty convinced my starter is going out but today after the usual 6 attempts then starting my check engine light came on with a P0340 ( camshaft position circut malfunction) . is this a sympathy code? or the source of my starting problem . thanks in advance for any replies.

    Start with the easy (and less expensive) diagnoses first, i.e. a poor battery connection, starter connection, etc. Replacing the starter entails removal of the entire intake system.

    this depends on if it is a V6 or a V8. the V8 is a PITA to get to the starter. the V6 isnt as bad.
