There is a little diode in your distributor that gets tired, and that's exactly what they act like. Either change it, or go to an auto wrecker and get a whole distributer. That's sometimes cheaper than buying electical parts.

This could likely be a problem with your cooling, Next time you turn your car on pay attention to the temperature gauge and see if it rises above the norm.

87 camry. we're replaced the starter, distributor


If you are trying to get the car to start easier you still may be venting through the gas line or gas cap. The new fuel line may solve the problem. What you still can do is replace the gas cap.
Both Autozone and O'reilly will test your car free. The system on an 87 model may not generate a trouble code on your dash for the problem you have. But the test gauge may show it.
If the car has zip the fuel pump may be okay. If the car fast idles briefly when cold, the cold start system is working. If the car does not idle up, the cold start system is not resetting.

Running Problems


I had this problem for years when my 87 was only a few years old. Even though it was tested over and over, the distributor ended up being the problem. I got lucky when a friend saw it posted in a tom and ray column in their local newspaper. It was for a corolla, but same year. I told my mechanic to replace it. He said I didn't need one, I insisted he replace it anyway and I've NEVER had the problem again.
Hope it fixes yours.
