car will not start sometimes, why? Seems related to how it senses it is in park or neutral.
I have to reposition the gear shift in my 2000 corolla excessively in order to
start my car. Push shift up and back and forth while depressing shift release
I take it you mean it wont crank/start, sounds like your starter safety neutral switch is acting up, next time put your car in neutral and try to start it.
I was told it was the transmission cable which apparently a real pain and expensive to replace. Car also uses lots of oil but I see no leaks or burning. Will an additive help the oil and is there a cheap trick to the starting problem?
Here you go big guy.parts store say to the guy neutral safety switch.
