Question about 1994 Toyota Camry

2 Answers

94 Toyota Camry 2.2 liter Start problem

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.

1998 Toyota Camry XLE 3.O liter - sometime misfires, according to Advance it the # 4 cylinder.


Run your vehicle with the hood open at night in a dark place with the headlights off. Look at the spark plug wires to see if spark is jumping out onto your chassis. If you have the long tubular boots, remove the one going to #4 cylinder and see if spark jumps to chassis through the side wall of boot. If so, replace the wire. It also could be the #4 post on your distributor. It's part of the cap assembly and they are usually pretty cheap to replace. Replace rotor button when replacing cap. The rotor button is usually less than 5 bucks.

94 Camry w/2200 quit running, rotor doesn't turn while cranking.


Hello.

If the rotor in the distributor is not rotating when you crank the engine, you have a broken timing belt.

The timing belt connects the crankshaft to the camshafts.

The camshaft turns the rotor.

94 Toyota Camry has rough idle.


check for a small vacuum leak speciallythe lines going to the throtle have someone look at it while you seat onthe car , idle ,FOOT ON THE BRAKE ! a way to test for leaks if to spray a lil wd40 around the lines an listen if the idle gets better or worst, sometimes the reason the engine runs to rough or lean are vacumm lines that are slightly broken.

Replace the coil. It is shorted out. I have changed quite a few coils for the exact same symptom.

The graciousness of a FixYa rating for my assistance would be appreciated.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance.
