Question about 1994 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

My car starts, then instantly dies. Could it be the fuel filter

Would a clogged fuel filter cause my car to die as soon as I start it? It died while driving it home, and since then as soon as I start it, it dies.

It could be the filter, but it could also be the fuel pump.

sounds like ecm. car starts but when it switches over to run setting from cranking setting the cumputer ecu doent activate the run curcuits which may control your fuel injectors. check to see if engine has spark. remove one plug wire from spark plug put it close to the valve cover if you see an arc then you know that you have spark. then also go to fuel pump in tank and check voltage on the power wire if you have good voltage and the pump doesnt make any noise while ur cranking then it may be a fuel pump if the pump is making way to much noise then check the fuel pressure by hooking up a fuel pressure gauge. all test are to be done while someone cranks the engine. noid light for the injectors, disconnect on injector electical connetor connect the noid light to the wire that u just unplugged from the injector. the light will flash while u crank , once it goes to the run circut the light will either stay on which will shut off ur car or the light will stay off which will do the same. if the noid light did what I said when it went to the run circut then it is what controls your injectors...ecm good luck....daniel

Sounds to me like the fuel pump is worn out. They DO wear out. And even though they seem to be working, the brushes in the electric fuel pump may not be contacting all the commutator, thus making the pump weak. It may start the motor but can't maintain normal running pressure (27-35psi). Have you run the car out of gas shortly before this problem surfaced? If you have then it's your fuel pump. It was damaged when the tank ran dry. Even though the pump may seem to be working, it's still badly damaged and needs to be replaced.
Just as Matmenzies has stated, get a fuel pressure gauge and test the pressure. I'd start with a complete check of all your vacuum lines. Check for cracks on the vacuum hose that connects to fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail. Also, if you can, get a hand operated vacuum pump to check the regulator. If you can place a vacuum on the regulator and it holds, I'd say move on the fuel pump and check it.
BTW, if the fuel filter has been changed, you may want to check to see if it was installed backwards! Some fuel filters are valved and will cause symptoms like this. However, this is an immediately noticeable mistake and you haven't provided enough info for me to say more. I'd pull it and check that it has any flow at all. You could have sucked in a big dirt ball and blown it right into the new filter, effectively stopping fuel flow. Then I'd blow out the fuel lines, just to be sure.
Start with these 2 things and post what you find. We'll go from there.

The fuel pump is suspect but I believe there's also a fuel filter inline on the underside of the drivers side chassis. Fuel works off pressure so if the filter is clogged, the pressure remains between the fuel tank and the filter. Once the fuel has siphoned off between the filter and injectors, it dies but because there's positive pressure at the fuel pump, it won't come on until the pressure slowly seeps past the clog after hours. It's worth a look!

Truck will start but engine dies and service engine soon light comes on/truck was idleing fine for 10 minutes then began to hesitate then shut off when first happened


When the engine dies the Check eng light is supposed to come on. You need to do a fault code test on the OBD2 engine control module.

My 1991 toyota camry dies while Im driving


You must know if the fuel tank, line and filter are cleaned. It is probably because the fuel system is clogged. While you drive the fuel pump is taking the fuel as much as it can from fuel line and some fuel gets past the clog. When the fuel line is totally empty your car dies off. After you wait for some while the fuel has filled the line again and you can drive for a while. Also it can be some other problem, but for that i would need to know how often it happens, after what distance, does it twitches before it stops, it is fading out instantly or like loosing power but the engine doesnt sound to slow down accordingly during some 15 - 20 seconds until dies. There can be many reasons so it would help to know more.

You are not getting enough gasoline to the engine. Causes include: fuel filter clogged (When did you change the fuel filter last?) THat is the chief cause, but it could also be water in the gas especially in the winter as it freezes in the fuel lines.
