Try the fuel pump relay, and if you know for a fact that you fuel pump is functioning ok replace the fuel filter seeing there is no gas going to the injectors. Other that that I think it might be you fuel pump.

SOURCE: 1985 toyota extracab 22r-e cranks but won't start

as long as your volt meter is capable of measuring OHMS you can test wires, find the main power wire to the fuel pump and measure for voltage when you turn the key on(3-4 sec) if power is present at the fuel pump, and the pump don't run, then replace it

Best do a fuel pressure test. Should have chg. fuel filter from the get go. The only other filter is on the end of the fuel pump in tank. Bad gas and dirty gas will plug up fuel filter, hense burn pump up.

1993 toyota camry v6 car bucking in gear

Shawn, I would start by using a good injector cleaner thru the fuel system. Does it run smooth at all, like when cruising? You need to use the good stuff, the $1.00 a bottle junk won't help but it does sound as though you have a fuel issue, could be a bad injector itself on a car of that age.

My 91 cammry suddenly wont start I have spark for sure! I suspect a fuel problem where do I start. & whats the procedure Chuck

Easiest thing to do is make sure you right. On the air cleaner hose theres a smaller hose connected to it coming from the valve cover remove it and spray a little carb cleaner or gas into the big hose with the engine cranking. If it fires up running on the carb cleaner you know its a fuel problem if not the timing belt could have broke. To check that, on some models you can remove the oil filler cap and see the cam or rocker arm. Crank the engine and if the parts don't move the belt is brocken. Thats where to start

Toy starts runs 10 seconds and stops change fuel filter now wont

When you tur the key forward do you hear the fuel pump running? You should hear a low hum for about 20 seconds near the gas tank and then it stops. If you hear this your pump is good. If it keeps running or you can't hear it at all it's bad or the main fuel pump fuse is blown.

Wont start or stay on

From the info you provided, it seems like it is not getting constant supply of fuel. I think that don't have a carburator. It has a TBI(Throttle Body Injector. You should hear a faint humming noise at the back coming from within the fuel tank when you turn the key on. Thats the fuel pump. Your fuel pump may have gone out.

My car stalled and it will turn over but will run rough for a minute and then die. Does not seem to be getting enough gas to keep running. I have a half a tank of gas. It is a 1995 Toyota Camry 4 cyl...

there are many reasons for could be a stopped up fuel filter, to dirty injectors. I would change the fuel filter, then fill the tank, and add fuel injector cleaner, The gas we get these days is not what it used to be....try changing where you get your gas....hope this helps, and please rate me...thank you
