Hey my 1998 Toyota Camry cranks over but wont start? What do you think it could be?

For engine to run you need compression, air, fuel, and spark. One of those areas is letting you down.

Efi relay what does it turn on when key not on. i have to pull relay so it wont drain my battery i also got some codes p1126 and p0308 just recently

With the key off the Main EFI relay shouldn't be powering anything up . The EFI relay is energized by the ignition switch , if it is the EFI relay you here clicking ,you could have an ignition switch problem . It can't have anything to do with the fuel pump , because it has it's own relay down stream from the EFI relay . This is just an educated guess , from my thirty + years experience. The only way to tell for sure is test . I suggest you go to you tube an check out some videos on basic electrical trouble shooting . An how to do a parasitic draw testing an go from there .Also go to for free wiring diagrams to look at what all is involved in that circuit . Get a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter.

P01126 has to do with electronic throttle control . OBDII Code P1126 TOYOTA Magnetic Clutch Circuit Malfunction HelpForCars net I strongly suggest you take this to a ASE certified repair shop or the Toyota dealer

1997 Toyota Camry cuts out

There are many possible causes but first examine the EFI main relay mount in fuse block 1 under the hood. The mounting base of the relay is prone to breakage in old Camrys. You can tell if this is the cause because the check engine indicator lamp on the instrument cluster will not light when you turn on the ignition.

Need more power

Change the cam to one with a more aggressive profile, install a performance hi flow air intake system, hi flow mufflers and a set of exhaust headers, u will have to install hi flow fuel injectors and a re-program of the computer to take advantage of the above modifications. If u really want to go all out a Turbocharger would be the ticket, but that would cost $1000's

Pls help me, I need to know the best ignition timing.

The faster time will give you the best performance but then you will need to use better gas if you have a timing ping when you accelerate.
