Question about 1989 Toyota Camry

89 camry won't rev up

I have an 89 toyota camry with the 2.5 v6. It is hard to start then when it does start you have to hold the gas to the floor for it to idle. I put a new maf on it and it didn't make a diffrence. When you put brake clean in the intake the car still will not rev. Noticed that the spark was only orange not blue. Not sure where to start. Parts are kinda expensive to just start throwing.

Check the fuel pressure on the fuel rail on top of the motor. Diesel fuel tends to be "dirtier" than gasoline, and I'd be willing to bet the fuel filter is stopped up.

pull the vac line off going to egr valve and plug off the vac line and drive it to see if it will still stall.but if i was a betting man i would say that it will not die and you will need to replace the egr valve this is a common problem.if it sets a check engine light cause you unplugged the vac hose you can reset by pulling the efi fuse that is under the hood in the fuse block and keep it out for about 30 sec or taking the battery cable off. good luck and i hope this will help let me know how i did and if i can help you any further...........

SOURCE: 1994 Toyota Camry XLE replaced fuel pump & filter car starts & idles but boggs out and cuts off when pressing gas pedal?

have you pulled codes or checked the fuel pressure? It could be a host of things, like a clogged air filter restricting the flow of air into the engine, a bad air meter, clogged injectors, etc. Engine codes will help you start narrowing things down.

Has the engine air filter ever been changed?

89 Camry won't start!

Check for power on the small wore at the starter with the key in the crank position. If there is power there and your sure the battery is good than the starter is bad. If there is no power work your way back to the neutral safety switch on the clutch pedal. There should be power in and out with the key in the crank position and the pedal fully depressed. Make sure there is not a balled up floor mat behind the clutch pedal. Couldn't tell you how many times I charged customers for a tow and an electrical check and removed there floor mat! If there is no power to the neutral safety switch than the problem may be a little more involved. I need to know if it has a four cylinder or v-6 That should give you a couple things to check in the mean time. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using!
