Question about 1991 Toyota Camry
Won't start on cool foggy mornings. Started this morning, but I forgot my lunch inside. So I turned it off and when I came back 5 minutes later it wouldn't start. Brake gets hard to press down after it won't turn on. Just replaced starter motor and ignition. All the dash lights light up and radio comes on.
Anne, it sounds to me like dampness in the ignition process, if the engine is turning over at the turn of the key,then check the rubber ring seal inside your distributer cap(thats the coloured plastic cap with all the leads to the spark plugs) if its perished or showing signs of distortion,replace the whole cap. if its seems ok then try starting your engine at night or at least grey dark,open the bonnet and watch for sparks coming from any of the HT leads ( cable like things) that go to the spark plugs.If present either spray with "sparkseal"(short term solution) or replace the leads.Try this and if it doesn,t solve it , get in touch ok?
