1991 Toyota Camry DLX 3sfe Won't Start

My Camry broke down at Wal-Mart around Christmas shortly after changing the timig belt and fixing the front main seal. I have been trying to diagnose ever since. When at Wal-Mart I discovered the camshaft was turned 90 degrees from where it should be. During disassembly I forgot to disconnect the battery. Then when I disconnected the alternator a wire grounded and sparked on the engine block. Later I found that it blew the AM2 fuse on the battery. After replacing the fuse the car would crank but it no longer has spark. I have replaced the coil. Coil has voltage. Pickup coil reads a slightly high resistance (210 ohms). Wires test normal ranges on resistance. I have tested all fuses by the battery and by the drivers feet. Any suggestions?

test light on neg with key on power at both sides of coil ???? next test light on bat plus put to coil neg and have somone turn car over if test light flashes and still no spark coil is bad if test light no flash ignighter is most likely bad the ignighter switches ground on your coil for spark

I had a prolem like this one time a while back. what i did was got the wiring diagram and checked everything that was running through that 30 amp fuse. on the one i was working on it ended up being an injector wire pinched under the valve cover and it didnt short out till the car was driven til it warmed up and expanded after the valve cover gasket was changed. hope this helps!

SOURCE: No spark, 1988 Toyota Camry 3SFE 4cyl, 5 speed.

there is no crank sensor on this vehicles 2.0L. If you have power to the coil, new coil, cap and rotor try this if not done yet>>>Unplug coil power first....Try pulling off the distributor cap, and make sure the rotor is spinning with the cam...If this fails to spin, inspect the entire distributor assembly. If it passes, Inspect all the power circuit and wiring to the dist assembly, if ok possible ecu. i recommend having a mechanic check it out!! Hopefully this helps...please rate...thanks

I had same problem and it turned out to be the "Spark Generator(module)" which was size of small wallet and can be seen under the hood in plain sight. Parts store price was $300-400. Salvage yard had box full of used ones @ $20-30 a piece.

It sounds like you know what you're doing. The two things I did not see covered are: do you have fire at the spark plugs: you checked the efi fuse but I see no indication that fuel to the cylinders has been verified. Have you pulled a spark plug to see if fuel is reaching the cylinders?

I want to see how to fix my timing belt engine.....


A 2.2L engine? You only have the one timing belt, which drives the camshafts, oil pump and water pump. The other belt(s) are drive belts for A/C, power steering, alternator etc.
To see if it is broken, lift the distributor cap a little and see if its shaft turns when the engine is cranked. If it does, something else is the cause. See here p25

How many belts have to be changed on a 1991 Toyota Camry? Timing belt, air conditioning belt?


For normal service, the belts should be changed every 30k (as per what Toyota recommends) the timing belt should be replaced every 92k (if required some are chain driven still). The different belts and everything like that you should replace belts that are frayed, torn, weak, cracked, or broken as needed.

Hi, my 1990 Toyota Camry with 3S-FE engine noises on timing belt side recently. I got my timing belt and water pump changed in 2006 December. So far I drove the car around 50,000km. I changed my power...


I had the same problem in my 3sFE, I thought the same way you did, but it turn out to be the fan, check if there is any play in the fan, change it and your scrutching noise will be no longer there

Power steering belt on 1991 toyota camry


Locate the idler pulley. Loosen the nut in the center of the idler pulley. Then loosen the bolt that protrudes from the back of the pulley. This will let the belt go slack.
