Check the wiring harness that lays close to the pullies on the passenger side of the engine. Look for the green wire that may be cut or rubbed in to. Had the same issue, replaced coil, pick up and it ended up being a frayed wire that rubbed on the power steering pull"ie".

My camry just stopped and now wont start at all? could it be spark plugs? or distributor,

this is a tuff one to dieaganose. Ok I well try have someone with you open gas filler door remove gas cap have someone listen when you turn on so all dash lites come on (do not crank motor) you should here a buzzing noise for a short time maybe 5 seconds if not fuel pump is dead need to replace. If that is not the problem remove a spark plug wire from the plug, stick a small screwdriver in the wire again 2 people needed hold the screwdriver near a metal part of the engine 1/4 inch away try to start engine person under hood with screwdriver should see a spark . If no spark it could be a coil or distrubter modual this is all free test you can do before throwing money into it hope this helps CJ

The motor the car will not get spark to the coil or the distrubter

check to see if you have 12 volts into the coil...the coil fires based on engine RPMs (trigger), you can check for this at coil while cranking. you are looking for a test light to flash on and off quickly while cranking..if all is good check underside of cap for carbon tracking (dark thin lines in plastic)...good luck, let me know marty

1995 Honda accord does not start when car sit for a while

Check your compression. If you don't have a compression checker, take the plugs out, shoot a squirt of oil in each cylinder, replace plugs and crank engine. If engine starts, you are probably looking at a bad set of rings.
