    the hard part is tracing it because it can come from different spots . . but im pretty sure that's the issue with your car

My car is turning over fine but it's not trying to start it's a 4 Cylinder and the timing belt was replaced about 10 months ago. I smell gas while trying to crank it.

I had this issue recently with my 1992 Camry with the 2.2 motor. I had to replace the coil that is inside the distributor. This got the car running, it is about $40 at the auto parts stores. Then car was intermittently running rough. I removed the throttle body and Idle Air Control valve and cleaned them both. Seemed to improve starting but still was idling rough when warmed up. Some of the Toyota forums I read suggested replacing the Engine Coolant Temperature sensor ($20) so I began to pull the connector off to check it when it broke in half. Put the new one on and is running well now. When this sensor goes bad, the computer thinks the engine is cold even after it warms up so it gives it more fuel, and this floods the engine. Hope this gives you some ideas to try.

yes it could be a fuel related problem, when was your last tune up, it could also be a spark issue, old or corroted spark plugs will sometimes not put out the correct amount of heat to ignite the gas correctly till it runs for a while, if the check engine light isnt lit, it will almost have to be something simular to this

have your idle control switch check, easy and inexpensive to replace. The idle control switch is what keep the engine stay idle. also have your throttle body clean by a professional having that many miles, it will give you better gas mileage.

The car warms up and then starts sputtering and bucking

When your engine is running lean that means it's not getting enough fuel.So if it's one side (or bank) of the motor then possibly you have an injector problem on that side.You'll want to get a fuel pressure test to see if the fuel system pressure is up to specifications.Then get the injectors tested.These tests are simple and realitivly cheap.

Engine starts rough intermittently

First thing that I would do is Replace the Fuel Filter and get the Fuel Pump Checked out. It sounds like it is one or Both of these.

Speed at idle


The proper revs on these engines are 750rpm's. You might want to play with the bolt located at the throttle body accelerator/flow control valve in order to increase or restric air going into the engine
