Question about 1992 Toyota Camry V6

1 Answer

Engine very hard to start.

I have a 92 Camry 2.2 automatic, was driving it the other day and was running great, turned a corner when i went to step on the gas it would not come up on rpms, pressed a little harder it just died, by the way no engine codes, could not get it started again. Acts like it wanted to fire but would not start. Towed it home, let it set overnight, tried it again cranked and cranked and finally did get it to start again, took it up to 3 - 4 k rpm slowly run like a top, try to rev it up and would die and nearly impossible to start again. Changed pump, and filter, and checked regulator which appears to good. still no luck, took it to a local mechanic and he thought it was leaning out, which he checked pressures as well. Was wondering if it could be a distributor problem? Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you.

Make sure your fuel cap is allowing atmospheric pressure to enter the tank. They are designed to allow air in to replace the spent fuel. if this is blocked it creates a vaccum.

good luck!

I have a 93 K3500 with a 454. Truck was running fine, started no problem, ran great. Driving the other day, turn the corner and the engine quit. Cranked the engine, fired up for 2-3 seconds then quit, ...


Before starting the engine, the fuel pump should only run for a few seconds when the key is first turned, to pressurize the fuel system. Even though the pump appears to be running, you may either have not enough or too much pressure for the engine to keep running (fuel pump or pressure regulator). I think it may just be a coincidence the engine quit while turning a corner, but the gas in your tank may have been so low it sloshed away from what is likely a very old pump, starving it and causing it to failure.

You can try this.
Turn on the key and listen for the fuel pump to prime.
It will sound like a gentle hum. when it stops, turn the key off. wait a few seconds and do it again. Do this three or four times, but don't try to start it. after the third or fourth time you turn it off, try to start it. It may not be priming the fuel injectors fast enough.

94 Camry was running fine, suddenly became sluggish


How did you try to obtain the codes? Did you short pins E1 and Te1 in the grey connector under the hood?

When the light comes back on, short the above pins, and get back to us.

Without seeing the codes, I would venbture a guess that you first consider a good tune-up, and use Toyota plugs only. Any other manufacturer will not work very well. I see this every day, new plugs, and the engine runs poor. Toyota plugs fixes it right up. The heat ranges are diffferent in Toyota plugs.

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.
