Question about 2001 Toyota Camry
Is priming the line the only way to start a Camry if the pump is dry? It has fuel in the tank. Car is parked with the rear down hill. Starter and fuel pump are audible when turning the key.
Myself I would Hit The intake with some starting fluid but have some water close bye if needed...Now Crank the Camry and see if it starts ..if it does then dies then I know i have ignition and fuel starvation is the cause ...Remember Intake Air And Gas, Compression Of Air And Gas, Ignition of Air And Gas, Exhaust of Combustion..!! Tell me if What the ECM is saying to you, How The Fuel Pressure At The Rail..?? If Camry Does Not Start With Ether Starting Fluid Then I would Have To Think In Line of Compression And Ignition..!! Has The Car Triggerd A Interisia Switch Or is The Oil Level in the Engine So Low The Car Has No Ignition Because the ECM Wont Power The Coil Pack..?? Just Thinking of Questions...???

If you ran the car empty it really only needs at least a gallon even on a hill it will start. Sometimes it takes 2-3 key cycles for full prime. If its still not starting you could have low fuel pressure , fuel pump could be faulty

Before you reset the fuel pump, make sure to read all of the following instructions!!!!!
1.) Look for an access panel in the trunk, driver's side; it might even be labeled "Fuel Pump Reset".
2.) Open the compartment and press the red button. This should reset the pump.
3.) At this point it might be a good idea to "burp" the fuel tank. This will probably be the easiest thing you do all day! Just pop the cover and unscrew the gas cap, this will release any preasure built up inside the tank. As long as you're in a controled environment, go ahead and leave the cap open until you finish "Step 4". Otherwise "burp" it a couple of times while you're priming the lines.
4.) The next step is to prime the pump. In other words, make sure there is enough gas in the fuel lines to start the car. The easiest way to do this is by turning the key back and forth from the "OFF" to the "ON" position. *** Be sure not to turn all the way to the "START" position until you have performed "Step 4", at least 3 or 4 times. If you attempt to start the car before the fuel pump is properly primed, you will run a serious risk of burning out the pump. This could lead to even more costly repairs!!!
5.) Replace the gas cap before attempting ignition.
6.) Once you have reset the pump, burped the tank, primed the fuel lines, and replaced the gas cap; you should be all set! Go ahead and give it a crank, good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
