3RZ Starter prob.

Hey guys, I've got a 96 taco with the 3RZ. When you hit the switch all i get is a click. And no it's not the beat on the starter click or the i beat my battery cables on click. At first it would do it 3 or 4 times then start, then it went to 20 or 30 times, n now it won't start at all. You can roll it off and it does fine. Someone mentioned a cam or crank position sensor. Not sure. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys, Jon

Rebuild the starter. The clicking is from a worn out plunger and contact points. Check over on TTORA and search starter rebuild. Should come up with a post that has the part numbers and the rebuild. I did this a few months ago. The hardest part is getting the starter out of the truck, the actual rebuild takes like ten minutes.

yea, that's why it's still resting on the jack stands. Those are only supporting the weight of the springs.

Your shackles should be straight and have spacers if everything doesn't line up.
If all else fails you just have to buy a starter.

Yeah so i was just heading out side to go yank my starter out and see what the hell was up with it. Its doing exactly what yours was. I figured it was a bad ground. Or should I say I was HOPING it was a bad ground. But yeah so would it be cheaper to fix this one or buy a rebuilt one for about 70 bux? Eehh whatever im just gonna pull it out and get another one. I just wanted to say how perfect the timing was on this post.

I took mine to the local starter shop and the guy rebuilt it in about 4 hours. Put new points in it, cleaned tohe mud out, and sand blaster and painted the outside. 40 bucks. Figured that was better to keep my taco starter than a cheap auto-zone remanufactured knock off.
