Why won't my car start?

My 1999 Toyota Camry won't start, sometimes it will if I tap on the starter and press on the gas as I turn the key. Could my starter need replaced or my fuel pump?

Kaitie Richards does it make any noise when you try to start it? Does the engine turn over? When you turn your headlights on and try to start your Camry, do the lights go dim? What engine size does your Camry have and is it automatic or standard transmission?

This may be too late but...

I had this problem with my 1999 Camry and it turned out to be a bad starter motor. At first tapping on it would allow me to start the car but after a while it'd take more and more until at one point it just stopped starting period.

If this turns out to be your problem it's a pretty cheap and simple fix to do yourself for the most part: pick up a starter at O'Reillys , pop the old one out and the new one in. It was pretty straightforward so I didn't use a guide or video but this video seems to be a good start.

Turn the key to the "on" position without trying to start it, you should hear the fuel pump run for a few seconds then stop. Also you could pick up a cheap fuel pressure tester at an auto parts store and attach it to the valve on your fuel rail to get a true reading.

Do you have a multimeter? Check the battery to make sure it is reading at least 12V DC, the value should go up to about 13-14V once the engine is started, that lets you know the alternator is charging up the battery correctly.

When you say you "tap on the starter" are you crawling under the car and hitting the starter motor/solenoid? If you are and it works, it a good sign that the starter solenoid and/or starter is bad and sticking.

juan zuniga - may want to make sure the battery positive and ground cables are mounted securely on the battery.
