Question about 1994 Toyota Camry
Posted by Anonymous on
The timing has nothing to so with the engine cranking, that is, the starter turning the engine over.
If the engine won't crank, the first thing to check is a weak or flat battery. Then on to the battery terminal tightness and cleanliness, and a good connection of the ground strap at the engine block and the chassis.
You could try a jump start to see if a stronger battery helps, but take care with the order of connections and use a jumper cable with a surge protector in it. Turn on the headlights of both cars as a further damper to voltage spikes.
In a car the age of this one it is possible the starter solenoid contacts are worn, they were in my 94 Camry.
If you mean the engine cranks but won't start, the causes are several. If you recently changed the timing belt, and it started before that, I'd have to suggest the timing is assembled a tooth or 2 out.

Well if it is a 4 cylinder the timing marks would be small hole in camshaft lined up with little dot on head at 12 o'clock position and the crank with the pulley on should line up with 0 on the timing indicator. If it is a 6 cyl then the marks would be- camshafts both with dots up and lined up with indicaters on heads and crank timing mark on 0 with the harmonic balancer installed. Hope this helps.

Push and hold trip button on dash with key off, turn key on but don't start, odometer will clock down, when it is finished, lite will go off

Get a T belt from toyota. It has 3 white lines on
it and and arrow mark. 2 lines are solid and one is broken. Put the
arrow facing away from the engine. The cam gears have a dot punched
into them near a certain tooth. This is where the solid white lines
will line up with. The crank gear will have a dot also. It will line up
at 90 degrees from the top, towards the front of the car. This is where
the broken line will match up with. With the belt installed with all
lines on their proper dots and arrow away from the engine, you valve
timming is correct.
Of course you need to remove and compress the tensioner also. I assume you know this already since you didn't ask.

The starter is found under front end.. Near where the moter meets the trani - you will see the flywheel (a big round gear) the starter connects to the flywheel to turn the motor..
Disconnect the battery..
Disconnect wires from starter..
Should be 2 bolts that hold the starter in - remove them..
The starter goes in only one way so you cant mess it up..
Rate well ;o)

Just make sure the timing belt is on properlyy, lining up the cam and crank in proper position to each other. The engine willstart when fully assembled because the electrical has not be altered. If it has a crank position sensor , be sure to put it back on after cleaning it and the connector.
