Check for spark. Take a plug wire off a spark plug leaving the other end still attached to coil pack/distributer. Stick a screwdriver in the end. Holding the handle of the screwdriver keep the metal part a couple Millimetres off a section of metal while you get some one to turn it over. If it is really sunny it will be hard to see the spark. Do this one plug at at time so you don't get the wires mixed up.

SOURCE: where is located the fuel pump of 1986 Toyota Camry and the price

It's inside the gas tank. Took me about 20 minutes to drop the tank. 2 bolts that hold it up and undid 2 small bolts on the heat flange that seemed in the way. You should also take out the one small bolt on the driver side holding the brake cable up. You have to anyway to get the tank back in.
I got a pump online for $50. Pump only and it took about 10 minutes this morning to put it in the original bracket out of my fuel tank. So I say go with pump motor only and save big bucks.
TIP: For those of you who want to check if its your fuel pump or fuel relay. There are 2 easy places to do this. One is at the gas tank itself. Under the car they dropped the wiring harness down and put a connector in a bracket on the back of the gas tank. The second one is behind the rear seat back. Lift out the bottom seat pushing the 2 levers and then there are 2 bolts to take out to remove the rear seat back. Then you will see a connector on the passenger side up high. You can use either of these connectors to check if you got power when the key hits the start (engine cranking) position. If you do the relay is good. You can run power from a battery/charger to the fuel pump and see if it works.

Car will not start battery was checked and is ok. I pulled the plugs they are not fouled and I smell gas on them.

If it's turning over ok, the next thing would be to see whether or not spark is getting to the plugs, Use a timing light while cranking or let one of the plug wires arc a spark to the engine block while cranking

94 toyota camry stalls at red lights and stop signs, then acts like it doesnt want to restart

could be bag igniter or crank sensor. basically, might be a spark problem. if you turn it on and don't smell fuel when you pump the gas, it's spark. if you don't, it's a fuel problem. filter or injectors.

Toyota camry le 1996

a squirel or other small rodent type got in under your car and chewed right through your gas line and so your motor cranks but no fuel gets to it because its all leaking out of your knawed gas line, causing that gas smell. either that or an angry ex- got under your car and snipped them.... or it could be your fuel pump.
