In general, how much does a starter for a 5mge cost?
How about an injector?

I'm looking at purchasing an '85 Celica-Supra, but it needs a starter and one new injector (it's running on 5 cylinders).

Thanks in advance...

starter price

Well I could tell you at the dealership theyre around $140. And at Checker/Kragen stores the AUTOLITE brands were about $70 plus you get $20 for your core. Same place also has a BECK/ARNLEY brand for around $100 -20 for core. Not sure on injectors :?

Usually the starter can be fixed with new contacts from Toyota. If you need a set of injectors I've got some if you want to buy them cheap.

TSRM info

Im curious of the same :?: In the 84 TSRM its called a PERFORMANCE TEST OF STARTER. (caution: These tests must be performed w/in 3 to 5 seconds to avoid burning out the coil)

1.PERFORM PULL-IN TEST
A. Disconnect the field coil from terminal C.
B. Connect the battery to the magnetic switch as shown.
Check the SST plunger moves outward. If plunger does not move, replace the magnetic switch.

2.PERFORM HOLD-IN TEST>While connected as above w/plunger out, disconnect the negative lead from Terminal C. Check that the plunger remains out. If the plunger returns inward, replace the magnetic switch.

3.CHECK PLUNGER RETURN>Disconnect the negative lead from the switch body. Check that the pinion returns inward. If the plunger does not return, replace the magnetic switch.

4.PERFORMANCE NO-LOAD PERFORMANCE TEST
A. Connect the battery and ammeter to the starter as shown pg(ST-10)in TSRM.
B. Check the starter rotates smoothly and steadily w/the pinion moving out. Check the ammeter reads the specified current.
Specified Current: Less than 90 A at 11.5V
