    Larry, Thank you for response the timing belt and water pump were replaced last month. They did Diagnostics but said nothing was revealed and could not replicate the problem. The engine just does not start once the engine is hot. Are you a mechanic in the Phoenix area?

Very unlikely. Check to see if a spark is being generated to the spark plugs. Could be electrical. Check compression on at least one cylinder to see if it is within specs. If not, you probably have a broken timing belt. If it tries to start and doesn't sound normal turning over, it may be because you have almost no compression...again sign that the timing belt is broken. Last possibility if all this pans out: bad fuel pump. Crack a fuel line going to the engine and try to start (if no fuel appears, fuel pump is not working...it should produce some 40 pounds of pressure or so).

That is trouble in the Exhaust Gas Recirculation system (EGR). It could be

What's wrong with the code P0401 for camry 96


P0401 OBD-II Trouble Code
Insufficient EGR Flow
What does that mean?
EGR stands for Exhaust Gas Recirculation. It is part of the vehicle emmissions system, and is used to reduce combustion temperature and pressure to control Oxides of Nitrogen. There are generally three parts to the EGR system: the EGR valve, an actuator solenoid, and a differential pressure sensor (DPF). These things work together to deliver the correct amount of recirculation based on engine temperature, load, etc. The P0401 code means that OBD detected an insufficient amount of EGR.

How do i test egr system on 93 toyota camry


Testing steps:

  • Remove the vacuum hose on the top of the EGR valve and plug it.
  • Connect a short hose to the EGR valve.
  • Start the car.
  • Now **** on the hose, or use an appropriate tool to apply suction to the line
  • this will open the EGR valve the engine should stumble and try to die.
    If it does the EGR valve is working.
There is an "Exhaust gas manifold pressure sensor" that measures the exhaust gas flow to the EGR valve. The problem is the sensor itself becomes clogged with exhaust carbon and gives the computer a fixed false reading, the computer in turn sends too much vacuum to the EGR valve and the engine runs rough, surges and may die.

Check engine light on-code says egr valve is bad


the egr system consists of control circuits as well as the egr valve itself. troubleshooting will have to be performed in order to pinpoint the fault. the valve may just need cleaning. there may be damage in the long run since the egr system introduces exhaust gas to the air intake to reduce combustion temperatures.

How to replace EGR valve in 1996 toyota camry


It is simple. It looks like a little flying saucer or pancake and it is in the rear of the engine on top near windshield.There are two hoses that plug into it from the exhaust, and one coming out, and one on bottom (total of 4). You can just unplug the hoses and replace them easily.

Code P0401 1998 Toyota Camry


I'm assuming that it is a four cyl.The p0401 code is for insufficient egr flow.Most of the time it is the egr vsv valve (vsv means vacuum switching valve)which is what controls the vacuum to the egr valve to open it.It is kind of hard to get to as it is on the block under the head on the back side.If you follow the hose from the egr valve it goes to the vsv.I have also seen mice eat holes in the vacuum line which would also give you problems.I hope this help and let me know if you have anymore questions

1996 Camry 100 km stalling


You have one of two very common problems.
Number one may be a stuck open EGR valve
Number two would be a failing Idle Air Control valve (IAC).
Try this: Open the hood & locate the EGR valve, close to the firewall, behind the intake. Find & take with you a small hammer. The next time that it happens, open the hood & tap on the EGR valve. If it is sticking "open" the tapping may dislodge the carbon particles that are keeping it open.When the EGR valve is open, exhaust is getting into the intake at idle, and this will def stall out the car.
There is no repair to the IAC valve, it would need to be replaced if it is bad.
One of these two scenarios will cure your problem, I see it every day.
