Question about 1983 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

Sputters and dies

Sometimes the car runs just fine, its an 83 camry, and sometimes it gets a bad miss and then will die, the car was purchased by a friend a year ago and replaced the fuel filter and was told it was original, now a year later it occasionally dies so she took it in and had the fuel filter replaced again and a fuel injection service done, still died occasionally so now i am working on it, it was acting like the fuel pump was going out because when its acting up and you touch the throttle it would die, but if you eased into it it would run up the rpms, so i ckecked the fuel pressure and its perfect, and on top of that its really hard to get started again, its acting like its starving for fuel but the gauge says fine, help

Do you have the shop manual? You need verify the workings of each part and system one at a time. Follow the working line. You stated you checked the fuel pressure. Where was it checked? At which location? Was it checked under throttle? Does the fuel regulator check out? Is the fuel good (any water)? These problems can sometimes be a bear to find. It takes time and patience. Do one thing at a time and verify that it works properly before moving on to the next part/attack plan. Check all ground conections from the block/engine to the frame/body. Once you verify that the fuel delivery is good, start looking at emission related parts and fuel management parts (TPS, MAF, Cold start injector, EGR, etc.)

Engine sputters and sometimes dies.


As for the engine, try replacing the fuel pressure regulator. If it accelerates good but when you decelerate it dies, it's the FPR.
