Question about 1994 Toyota Camry

1994 toyota camry get difficult to start during cold weather

Hi all,

During cold weather, below 30 F, the car get extremely difficult to start, starter is fine, it has sparks, the engine has the swank sound, but it seems like the fuel couldn't get pass the engine. When the fuel does go through, it "jerks", you can hear the fuel getting in just like a person throw up, one at a time. Whenever I couldn't the "first ****", i will pour hot boiling water around the engine area to get the "****" going. I know it sounds really silly but it works! I have tried this several time. Normally if you leave the car unstarted overnight, like for 12 hours, it gives you this problem. If you only leave it for like 6 hours, you probably going to get the "****" easily and sometimes hot boiling water is not needed.

When weather is 40 F above or during summer time, the car start magically.

Question: Is it the fuel filter problem or some kind of temperature sensor is old?

Have been through three self acclaimed professional mechanic cant solve the problem.

Thank you for the answer, very much appreciated!

Change your oil to a lighter grade. Maybe even try some Lucus Oil Additive. It'll help everything be more willing to move in extreme weather. Good luck!

Engine broke due to low temperature


The water expands up to more than 9% when it freeze below 0 degrees Celsius. Due to this phenomena, during the extreme cold weather when the ambient temperature falls below 0 degrees the cylinder blocks of the automotive engines often burst or crack badly.
This damage can be prevented by using the antifreeze coolant in the cooling system.

What would cause a new muffler system to be loud only during wet or cold weather?


do you want it to sound loud? if it's only during wet or cold weather it may be because your new muffler (if supposed to be loud) is for higher flow of gases and when the weather is cold there's more air flow to the engine. try replacing the air filter with a k&n drop in maybe you just need a little more boost. or you could replace the entire box with a cold air intake. up to you. also clean your MAF if you get the chance older cars specially imports tend to get dirty after the years

2000 toyota tundra has no throttle response during extreme cold


This throttle body has a TPS ( throttle position sensor) and a Accelerator pedal sensor on it. The TPS is on the drivers side and the APS is on the pass side of the throttle body. When this happened your check engine lite came on then went off when it warmed up and acted normally. The code is still in History codes. Check it with a scan tool. I foget the code number but if it come up with the APS code in History, replace that sensor....not the TPS. It is a sealed sensor that gets moisture in it when the seal deteriates and it freezes in very cold weather.
