#801 of 802 1997 Toyota avalon
Jun 11, 2012 (3:35 pm)
So my 1997 Toyota Avalon has had trouble starting lately. There is no clicking sound, it will not turn over but after repeated attempts and some waiting, it will eventually start like nothing was ever wrong. This Happen intermittently, about 1 in 8 starts, but is becoming more frequent. I feel it happens more often when I am parked facing uphill on a slant, but I could be imagining not aspect. My mechanic (who is trustworthy) says battery and alternator are doing well, he replaced the starter because that is the most common problem, but the starting issue persists. He mentioned a couple sensors that could be the problem but I am at a loss for what to do next...

has anyone suggested the obvious---the ignition switch?
The starter and starter relay could have been easily checked without a replacement.
