1985 toyota camry unplug mass air flow sensor engine will start plug back in engine dies

There is a switch in the airflow meter that keeps the fuel pump relay closed as long as there is airflow. With the meter unplugged, the pump should not run except when the key is turned to start. It would seem to me that you have a wiring issue. Try jumping the fuel pump relay so the pump runs whenever the key is on. (Remove the relay and jump the pump wire to the accessory wire--see top left diagram.) This defeats the safety feature but will keep the pump running.

My 84 supra starts and then dies right after wards ... but if i start it and pump the gas itll stay on till i let go what can be the problemWhat's your problem?

It could be low fuel pressure, or a vac leak, or a problem with the idle air control valve. Also the mass air flow meter, or the cold start valve.
I would start with testing the fuel pressure and the mass air flow meter.

My 1990 toyota camry has been running poor. It seems to be missing and jumps and jerks. Off the line it just crawls until it hits 3,000 RPM then it runs fine. I have to downshift on any hill because it...

The mass air flow often goes bad on them. Did you have the vehicle scanned. Try unplugging the mass air flow and driving it. It is built into the air intake hose. If that does not change things, check the fuel pressure, and the throttle position sensor.

Hope this helped

My 1991 4cyl toyota pickup died while idleing. What are some suggestions on things to look at?

A diagnostic scan is always a good place to start, even if there is no check engine light on. Ignition...are you getting fire to the spark plugs? Fuel pressure, fuel pump, clogged fuel filter, air filter not restricted? Battery fully charged, terminals clean and tight? These are a few basics needed for proper engine mangement.
Good luck...hope this helps...please rate me a fixya.

2000 toyota corolla ve engine will run at idle but when you step on gas engine dies if you let off gas it stay running at idle got good fuel pressure good spark.i changed ecm changed fuel pump spark plugs...

Check the throttle cable to see if it's binding or catching on anything. If not, check the throttle body. If it's gummed up with carbon and not moving freely, you could be trying to add air that's simply not getting into the engine, while the computer throws a bunch of fuel in to match what it thinks it a ton of air.

Hope this helps.

94 yota pickup starts and idles breifly then dies

If it's not your fuel filter plugged , or fuel pump malfunction, then it is probably your Mass air flow sensor, or your coil pack etc. You'll have to see if you have spark or fuel first. One of them is missing.

93 toyota pickup no start

Check your airflow meter and wiring harness contacts for any shorts or corrosion, moisture, or worn wires or contact points. Check ground wires are in good shape with no worn or corroded contacts or seperated wires. Check you air filter. Sounds like you have timing, and fuel and spark. An air issue sounds like the culprit.

Troubleshooting 1988 Toyota Pickup No Start

If you have a tps and air flow meter you have a 22re fuel injection.
Check for codes by jumping TE1 and E1 or jumping diagnosis connector.


The 22re will run with out the tps(throttle position sensor) plugged in. But it will not run with the air flow meter unplugged. The air flow meter controls the fuel pumps voltage.
go to
This page tell you how to test those sensors. Then we can go from there.

The fuel pressure regulator may be shot also, but we will see.

I hope this was helpful.
