Hi, Try cleaning out the throttlebody. It maybe dirty inside. Also go to a garage and have them scan for codes. Good luck.

EFI= to Electronic Fuel Injection. If you have sparks, check for fuel delivery. Another is the electronic module on your distributor, but you already said you have spark and hopefuly the right "timming" too. So you checked the current and is OK, what else do we have.The computer? Remeber that Camry,is the cadillac of the Toyota. Some even have Lexus parts. So expect parts to be rather expensive!.

Definitely sounds like a fuel problem. I'd change fuel filter and check fuel pump. If pump is running it could still be partially clogged. Try a fuel rail pressure test with a knowledgeable mechanic.

Hi.

Re:new battery and altenator
If engine turns over battery and altenator are OK.

Re:checked the fuses and found a few were blown.
Effectively those may be symptoms of a wiring problem. If a job had been carried recently, undoing and re-connecting the wires to access the part(eg. alternator) may have contributed to the problem.

Check all fuses, with attention to fuel pump fuse. Check the connectors to fuel pump, eventually read volts at pump and nsure that fuel is circulating
Check air intake and connectors to air intake sensors (MAF sensor), check connection to crank sensor and O2 sensors.

The blown fuses may also have been incidental. If you did not find anything, troubleshooting must proceed as usual, checking distribution, fuel pressure, and then factors that can affect the ignition.

Remember that after a prolonged and failed attempt to crank the vehicle, the cylinders will be flooded and the car will no start (wet plugs- no spark).

Check if there is spark on all cylinders. This can be done removing one by one the spark plugs wires and putting them near to the engine block while someone else try cranking. You will see the spark.
If there is no spark, then you have a coil/distribution problem. test coil by reading volts in and impedance (coil must not be open). I think this engine is not distributorless. Check distributor cap and wires. If you have disconnected spark plug wires after the problem, also ensure that wires are connected in right order.

Once you are sure that there is spark, check fuel delivery and engine control. This part will take longer.

I uploaded here engine control diagrams and other documents that may help.

Regards.

check for spark first. if theres spark then crack a fuel line while trying to crank to c if theres fuel getting pumped to the injectors. always start with the basics then go from there.

Well, the fuel pump may be going bad. There's a fabric screen on the pick up tube in the gas tank that may be plugged. Look in the gas tank for sludge build uo.

Your ecu is most likely the problem if it is bad it wont send power to the fuel pump. You can check it by turning on the ignition then listen for noise coming from fuel tank. You should be able to hear the fuel pump come on.

The fuel pump is in the gas tank. Disconnect all hoses and electrical wires from gas tank. lower gas tank. Remove ring that secures the fuel pump assembly and pull assembly out, be careful not to damage fuel float assembly. When replacing fuel pump, replace the sock and the fuel filter.

Could be bad compression or a weak fuel pump, but I'd check the fuel filter first especially if you've run out of gas recently.
