First check the ignition switch.
then
Check all of the battery terminals and cables and check the wires on the starter/selonoid, start from the battery and follow the cable out and check all conections , clean and tighten them and if it still does it the starter/selonoid is bad and needs replacement...

Car just stop running i change fuel pump that not it.


To start with you need to diagnose what the cause of the vehicle not runing is. It takes to things to make a car start, fuel and spark. Find out which one of those things are missing like are you not getttting fuel and if not do you have power to the fuel pump if you are then most likely it is the fuel pump but seems this is not in your case. Find out if you are getttting spark to your spark plugs. If not then you need to diagnose that to find out the cause of not getttting any spark. At this point this is all I can help you with until you can narrow down where the loss is. I hope I was able to help a litle in any case.

1988 toyota camry 2.0 turns over but won't start. Car has been driving like a champ and one morning wouldn't start. Turns over fine but won't fire. Tested for spark by removing spark plugs...


Fuel pressure at idle is normally 30-35psi. Start by taking the gas cap off, and putting it back on. That will De-pressurize the fuel system. Also, make sure you have gas in the car. I have seen gauges on these cars read wrong. I hope this helps.

Check the actual fuel pressure and make sure it is to spec. Fuel injected vehicles need a certain pressure to run.
