    i did check the sparkplugs and they all seem to be fine. Could it by chance be the fuel pump? I'm a female and dont know too much about cars, but i willing to try to do what it take to try to fix it or at least know so i dont get screwed when i take it some where.

    Do you have power to the distributor and have you plugged a spark plug into an H/T lead to check that you do in fact have spark?

Do not disconnect fuel line as its high pressure and dangerous.Mechanic should do test with fuel pressure test gauge.If you dont know much about cars your unlikely to have the tools required to do some of the tests required to track down the fault and listening to unqualified people could get you seriously injured.If you smell gas then the pump would appear to be working.More likely to be ignition fault or flat battery but to be honest a mechanic would be your best option as its a variety of things it could be and without having the vehicle to do the tests all posters would be guessing.Sorry its not the answer you want but there you are.Good luck and hope you find an honest mechanic as most of them are

You need to tackle this logically. First of all the car has to have fuel and spark to ignite the fuel. You need to establish whether these are present or not. Then go along apporopriate route, fuel or spark.Secondly the spark has got to occur at the right time .There are simple checks you can do to find out if this happening.
To confirm sparks Remove one plug. recoonect lead , hold it in contact with the chassis and turn the engine,you should see spark jump across the plug gap. Dont hold lead with bear hands as it carries high voltage,use an insulated material to hold it in contact with chassis.
similarly you can disconnect fuel input to carbureter and turn engine to see petrol coming out.
Once these two facts are confirmed then it is timing of sparks that remains.
Hope this helps you to go in the right direction.

Your tranny has died.

More likely the pump in the tranny is bad, but it will take a rebuild to fix the problem sorry to say.

Toyota camry le 1996


a squirel or other small rodent type got in under your car and chewed right through your gas line and so your motor cranks but no fuel gets to it because its all leaking out of your knawed gas line, causing that gas smell. either that or an angry ex- got under your car and snipped them.... or it could be your fuel pump.
