Where do you spray the starting flued in a 1990 toyota camry


You can remove the cover of the air cleaner, pull aside the element, and spray it up the intake while someone cranks.

Try to use the minimum needed, a short puff or 2. A giant dose may cause damage if the engine starts in an explosive way.

Unless you are experiencing very cold weather, the required use of this stuff points to some underlying fault. If the engine runs on the starter spray, then dies, there is a fault with fuel delivery pressure. If it shows reluctance even with starter spray, there is a fault with the ignition, with bad timing a leading cause. In that case check the timing belt has not skipped a tooth, and that the ignition leads and plugs are OK.

1993 astro van wont start when van has been sitting for awhile. spray intake clean into throttle body and van starts and runs.


depends how long its been sitting if starts with easy start then its a fuel pump problem like the fuel has gone bad or the pump has gummed itself up ,so take it out and check that the pump still works as i suspect that its gummed up and good clean will cure it for you

When it rains , the van just won't start. It cranks , but will not turn over. If it sits on level ground for awhile it seems to crank fine . My mechanic sprayed water over the engine & can't get it to...


Try turning the key on (but don't crank the engine) and wait about 2 minutes, then try and start the van. Anytime mine sits more than overnight, this is the only way it will start, otherwise runs fine.

Hope this helps.

2005 no start astro van how to check if fuel pump is bad.


Open the hood ,remove the air box for the engine but leave the mass air flow sensor on.Get some carb cleaner and spray it in the air intake tube while someone tries to start the van and if it fires and runs on the cleaner it is defanetly a fuel issue and most likely the fuel pump.If you have a fuel pressure gague you can remove the engine cover inside the van and connect to the fuel pressure port to see what u have for fuel pressure which should be between 55-65 psi to run.

Vehicle will start & run then will quit


What engine? When was fuel filter changed last, and have you by any chance has fuel pressure tested, preferably when no start?
Tried spraying WD-40 into intake at front of throttle body, with plate open, and then try to start.? Sounds a lot like fuel pump going but lets be sure.
