Question about 1994 Toyota Camry
When the car died it seemed like it was running out of gas. First we replaced the rotor, distributor cap, sparkplugs and wires and it started. It ran rough though. We decided to go ahead and change the Timing belt, running belt, and fuel filter at a shop. When i got it home we put in a new gas pump. After that it ran but still hickuped while ideling. We Sprayed WD-40 and Carborator choke cleaner on the intake manifold to see if it had a vacuum leak. It did not rev. It suddenly died and now it trys to start but it just wont turn over. We think it might be an ignition coil but not sure. Any suggestions?
Rule 1 ....WD40 is non-flammable. It used to be an effective starter spray for diesels. Unfortunately it now contains a fire retardant to prevent accidents....so the rev you were looking for wont arrive.
It does work well with easy-start/ether though.
I suspect you found a vacuum leak and sucked WD40 into the intake....If u think u did you'll need to clean your plugs.
A strobe lamp to check the spark would be a good idea. Also if a lil squirt (VERY LITTLE) of easy start doesnt produce at least a backfire, your spark is out.

Had same problem, replaced cap,plugs,coil, week later car died again, brand new coil was eaten up again. Friend told me to replace distribitor as shaft or bearings were worn, has been running great if not better since, good luck!
