1994 toyota camry sputters

My girlfriends 1994 camry has been acting up forever and we fixed one problem by replacing the distributor but now one day while driving it home it just started sputtering and losing power. now most of the time it won't start but it will try to start and just quit but when it does start it sputters really bad for a few seconds then it will idle for about 10 seconds then kinda stall and the rpm's drop for a couple seconds and it revs back up. also when you press the gas pedal it hesitates and sputters then it will rev fine. the car has new plugs, wires, distributor and fuel filter. i was wondering if it could just be a simple fuel filter or something like a sensor.

Hi there
sounds like you need a tune up or you need your injectors cleaned
so i will help you clean them with out getting your hands dirty but you need to follow me every step of the way.
first i will give you my tips

  1. get a high quality fuel injector cleaner that you put into your fuel tank
  2. make Shaw you have just under a full tank of fuel
  3. while i never say that one should drive a car like it is a toy you are going to have to do some harsh exhilarating during this
  4. 1000rpm is 1 revs on your dash bored so if i say do 2500rpm it means do 2.5 on your dash (that's only if you dot know what rpm means)
  5. never turn the car off while we do this
  6. please do not speed you put your life and others at risk
  7. please do not drink and drive
OK now for the step by step instructions
  1. have what you need ready to go including the injector cleaner
  2. start your car and let it warm up keep the revs just over 1000 rpm
  3. as the car is running add the fuel injector cleaner
  4. when you have done this i want you to increase the revs to about 2000rpm
  5. keep it like this for about 30 seconds
  6. after the revs are back down to 1000 rpm i want you to get ready to take it for a drive
  7. OK so take it for a light drive around your street keep it very close to home as if your car stops you don't want to have to walk a long way
  8. once you have done this for a while and you feal confident i want you to be a bit quicker in exelarating giving a bit more power remember dont speed
  9. now once you have done this i want you to take her home and let it idle for a bit
    cause you need to get ready to go for a long drive
  10. now that you have got to the bathroom and are ready to go i want you to find a nice open road where you can do 60mph
  11. now that you are here i want you to act like ther is a road train in front of you doing 50mph
  12. now i want you to overtake this road train applying full power by pressing fully dont on the gas
  13. once over tiaken slow back down
  14. i want you to do steps 11 to 13 twice at least
  15. now go back home and let me know how it went
now something to remember for alwase
  1. as stated i dont think you should race or rev the motor all the time to high once a month give it a good run this will loosen and clean all the rubbish from the motor and everythink will run freeley like it should
  2. dont drink and drive
  3. dont speed
  4. saty safe on the roads you life is to valued
  5. and let me know all progress as i want to know if it helped as i pout in a lot of time and effort to helping people on this site
stay safe and happy new year
ricko

Hi Juan !
the spark plugs wires are 4 (four) the engine works in sequence of 1342 on the distributor cap mostly writes 1 ( one ) this means the first piston-the first spark -lead. if it is there then go clockwise and put the rest following the firing order I wrote above.

Intermittent stalling


The mass airflow (MAF) sensor could be at fault as your mechanic should know from his diagnosis. The intake air control (IAC) should be checked as well.

My v6 94 Camry is sputtering.


Poor quality fuel could certainly be the cause of this. Adulterated fuel can have a variety of substances in it, from water to diesel.
If it only started to do this after you last filled with the suspect fuel, have it drained before it causes damage.
Camrys will often leak oil onto the exhaust, from several spots,and that causes a hot smell. I think it may be unrelated to the sputtering.

I have a 1994 Toyota Camry and it won't start. It


You might also check the AM2 fuse in the engine compartment fuse box. There is a "noise supression" capacitor inside the distributor that shorted out on my '93 camry. You can replace the capacitor for about $10, but the capacitor is kind of hard to get at. I had to remove the distributor to get at it, but if you are a good mechanic, you can probably repair it in place.

With the AM2 fuse blown, I was getting crank, but no fire.

94 toyota camry stalls at red lights and stop signs, then acts like it doesnt want to restart


could be bag igniter or crank sensor. basically, might be a spark problem. if you turn it on and don't smell fuel when you pump the gas, it's spark. if you don't, it's a fuel problem. filter or injectors.
