Question about 1994 Toyota Camry
My '94 toyota Camry will not start. It used to take a long time to turn over and on 1 or two occasions I heard a loud knocking sound when i turned the ignition
> I heard a loud knocking sound when i turned the ignition
This may have been there a long time but you are only hearing it now because you are anticipating a problem. If it is only at the very first, it could be either the solenoid you are hearing or simply the teeth of the starter and flywheel not meshing quietly.
If it seems to be cranking too long, I'd check the fuel pressure up front; there is normally a capped valve that when exposed looks a lot like a tire valve. If you let it crank briefly (maybe 2 seconds) and then poke the valve to open it, you should have pressure there if the system isn't leaking somewhere and losing pressure. If it is, you are waiting for fuel to arrive.
Long cranking is most often caused by a wait for fuel to arrive from the gas tank.
