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

SOURCE: 93 toyota celica gt. engine turns over but wont spark

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?

Its most likley going to be the timing belt...

To much too type, there is a lot of details to this job, the best thing to do is to get a book on this particular vehicle, its about $20.00 at a auto parts store. This will give you all the Timing marks, the do's and don't-- locations and torque specs. ect....

Cost replace rear main seal toyota camry


Four cylinder or V-6.

Both engines will require the removal of the timing belt to service the front crank seal. Both engines will also require the removal of the transmission to replace the rear main seal

either way way you would be looking at 3-4 hours for the front seal and 5 to 6 hours for the rear seal.

Oil leak front engine timing chan


1995 Tracker would have a timing BELT. Normal oil leak points (in order) on a Suzuki G16 engine are the distributor base (rear of motor), valve cover (top of motor), front main seal (behind lower timing belt cog) cam seal (behind the upper timing belt cog) and rear main seal. (behind the flywheel). I'd suspect the front main seal or cam seal. I use foot power to help find oil leaks.

Change front main seal , leaking oil around timing chain cover. could be seal around harmonica balancer.


yes, I just changed one of these recently. Had to take both front and bottom off engine. Very difficult repair, as there are no good jack points for the engine when you have all the motor mounts off.
Here is procedure I would recommend.
Remove starter and engine to transmission brackets front and back.
Remove transmission starter gear cover.
drain oil and remove oil pan.
put a block under the crankshaft and jack to release weight on motor mount.
remove front motor mount (by serpentine belt)
remove belt.
remove compressor and bracket.
remove crank pulley and vib damper.
remove timing cover. mark timing belt with direction of travel
loosen tensioner gear.
remove timing belt.
remove crankshaft timing gear and key.
remove seal and oil pump housing.
clean gasket surfaces.
replace seal and reverse procedure.

If you have questions, let me know.

My 1998 toyota canry timing belt broke. Is this an interferance motor? Did It destroy the engine?


no you most likely bent valves on inlet side, pull the head and check for any other damage it all really depends on the rpm when the belt broke. ( rate me thanks )

Oils seals on a 1996 Nissan 300ZX


If he is talking about the rear and front main seals, they can be pretty pricey considering you have to drop the oil pan which might or might not have enough clearance without either jacking the engine up or dropping part of the drivetrain. I would take it somewhere and get some estimates.

My toyota vienta 3VZ-FE 1996 - oil leak onto exhaust


Hi,

That engine will leak oil from

- cam cover gaskets (rear one drips on the exhaust)
- camshaft end seals
- distributor shaft o-ring (appears on top of transaxle housing)
- oil filter bracket to block o-ring seal (drips on front bank exhaust)
- crankshaft nose oil seal (have done with timing belt change)
- rear main seal (expensive, leave it be)

My 1996 Toyota Camry is leaking oil right side front of vehicle


More than likely it would be the front seals, oil pump front shaft seal and gasket ( "o" ring), Cam seal, crank seal one of those. Have to remove timing belt in order to change these seals. I would change out all the seals and put a new timing belt on it. Depending on how many miles you have on your car I would consider a water pump as well because the timing belt also needs to be removed to replace this part. In other words... Costly repair, but instead of replacing the seals and solving the leak and then 2 weeks later the timing belt snaps, then you just paid twice for the labor. Check oil pan gasket first b4 you spend money on seals.
