    I did that and thank you for your input it was helpful in the process of elimination. in the end it was the distributor, had to replace it and reset the timing.

Take the cap back off and check if u put the set screw back in the rotor.. also there should be a little spring that makes contact with coil to the cap.... see if it fell out. also check all wire connections and make sure that ur firing order is right...

SOURCE: my 1993 toyota camry v6 wont start

Are you sure your battery is fully charged and also that your starter is operational? If the motor is not cranking over that would be the first place to start looking.

SOURCE: 1994 Toyota Camry Won't start.

you should check 3 things. AIr, Fuel, and "spark"
your cars could have many problems. Ignition module, fuel injectors, Mass Airflow Sensor.
You should check into all of these 3 things.
a crank-no start could be many things.
it could even be a cam positions sensors resistance going up when the engine heats up. Cracnk- no start means testing. n like i said
The motor is getting Air, There is Fuel being put into the cylinders, and the Spark plugs are firing.

SOURCE: 1995 toyota 4 runner starting problem once in awhile

Is the starter turning over the engine when it wont start or is nothing happening at all?
I might have your solution if I have more details.
If the engine is turning over but not starting then switch on the ignition and push it to start.If it starts you probably need a new ignition switch.

Please get back to me .Thanks

If you have other key try it. If it still doesn't work the immobilizer has a problem. If you deactivate it anyone with a copy of your key can put it to work. Be sure of what you do.

Car wouldn't start .told crankshaft sensor faulty / replaced but still not start & smells as if flood cab


Before you go for anything, try the following: 1) check if there is any spark goes from distributor or coil to leads .
2) check if your car fitted with injection system,if the injectors are spraying correct or are not. If not means that too much fuel in the combustion chamber and kill the spark.
3)remove the spark plugs - after you start for couple of times - if are dry or wet. if are wet probably you have problem with the injector or spark lead,coil or distributor.
4) blocked catalytic converter.
5) ECU ( Electronic Control Unit.) faulty.

At first blush, it sounds like the distributor cap isn't seated. Since it's happening when the engine is cold and at night, I'm guessing condensation is causing the problem. Try spraying starter fluid on the cap the next time the car doesn't start. This will dispel any condensation. If the car starts, that would be a good place to start.

I have a 2001 Chevy Venture. The vehicle is hard to start when it is cold or after it has been running. Once it starts,itruns fine. Also has a engine code lean bank one. I know one of the issues could be...


I have never heard of a major tune-up

All vehicle tuning has been done by
on board computers since 1980
some 30 years

Spark plug wires last the life of the vehicle
They only get replaced when they fail.
I had 1 wire fail in 46 years,personally

You do not have both an Ignition Module
as well as Coil Packs. They are installed
in two different systems

Any dash light you get & again they have
been there for 30 years,you retrieve any codes
within a couple days,diagnose code issues first
& repair. You have O2Sensor Codes
They wouldn't effect hard start problems

I would check fuel pressure with a gauge
Also Fuel Pressure Regulator

Vacuum Leaks
At least clean the MAF Sensor
Check TPS Sensor

Basically you need your vehicle tested in all
areas

There is a serious misconception that a
tune-up ,spark plugs etc are a cure all

I don't even start there when diagnosing
anything. You could throw away 2 plugs
& it would still start

I want to see what does work & how

Spark Plugs & other items you can get
from the vehicle history & past maintainance

Tune what?There is no tuning going on. Unless you have a carburator or a distributor,tune-ups have been gone,in some cases 30 years.
It is 14 years old. Have a shop go over it, and see if they can find some issues.
