This procedure usually works:
·Check the battery cable connections:
Make sure the positive cable, makes a good connection at the battery and at the starter. Make sure the negative cable makes a good ground connection at the battery and (preferably) at the engine.

·Check the battery the simple way, like this:
Turn on the headlights, then try to start the car.If the headlights do not dim or go out, then the battery is likely ok.

·Check the starter and solenoid:
If the wiring looks ok, then look at the starter solenoid for a good connection, and proper voltage at the starter(10 volts minimum while cranking).
If the starter spins and no crank, the problem is most likely the Solenoid's pinion gear is stuck.
Have someone hit (not too hard) the starter while you try to start the car. This usually works by dislodging a stuck pinion gear.
·Make a simple test of the alternator:
If you can, somehow get the engine running, measure the voltage at the battery. It should be at least 13.6 volts to properly charge the battery.

It could still be the security system. The resistors only bypass the key and ignition. If your Theft Deterrent Module is bad, the security light may not turn on, and the car will not start. You can bypass this.

Its likely that you have either a bad ignition switch or a bad neutral safety switch (if stickshift, clutch switch) Try starting in neutral...if it starts, change neutral switch (jump across clutch switch, check starting in neutral with your foot on the brake) Ignition switch is on top of steering column under dash.

ok, here goes, i also have a 305 tbi.. i know it sucks to reach things on them, but you have to know how... i have headers on my bird and that gives them about 2 mm of clearance for the bolts, and i recently replaced the heads and alot of gaskets and such..
The front spark plugs you should be able to reach from the top, but for the back plugs and wires you may have to jack the car up and come from the bottom.. (the only way) .. now on to the timing.. remove the distributor cap and you will notice the rotor bug.. next you will need to remove the number one spark plug..(closest to front driver side of car) now put your finger over the spark plug hole while you have someone crank the engine.. you will be able to feel compression.. when the hole pushes your finger back with air, notice which direction your rotor bug is facing and make a mark.... this approximation will be where to connect the number one plug wire on the distributor.. put the distributor cap back on hook up the number 1 plug wire to the plug and continue clockwise with the firing order... firing order is written on intake just below front of air filter it shoul be like 18436572 or somethin like that.. after you check, your plugs and wires and ensure good connection. you can take a 7/16 end wrench and loosen your distributor.. have someon cranking and holding gas while you slightly turn the distributor back and forth until it sounds good.. be careful don't turn very far it can cause the engine to back fire and without the air filter on the gas will ignite and cause a small fire... (This could be your only problem because if the distributor is moved at all the firing process will become all screwed up)

Test the voltage of new battery,Test voltage at starter connector with battery connected.
12 volt is what you should get.-------Not always but sometimes new batteries and starter even comes weak or bad.-----------


It can be the issue with weak battery or faulty battery or if battery is ok,then its faulty starter causing the issue.

Changed spark plugs now runs rough and has thick white exhaust

Changing the plugs probably had nothing to do with it.
White smoke is usually a sign the engine is burning coolant or trans fluid. You might want to check those fluid levels.
If the coolant is low, you may have a leaking head gasket or intake gasket.

92 toyota camry automatic le tac went crazy and sudden loss pwr

check you ignition components to see if they are worn or faulty, this is usually the cheapest part that can cause this problem since your tach runs off the ignition.check fuel filter before fuel pump as this could be clogged and also not as expensive as a pump or oxy sensor. a faulty oxy sensor will set a code.
