I have a 95 Camry 4 cyl. I had the Distributor changed last year along with the timing belt, plugs, wires, and fuel filter. Now when I drive it goes about 7 miles and shuts down, after about an hour it...

Lets start at the beginning. The engine computer grounds the pump relay. The relay gets power from the EFI relay when the key switch is on and from the starter fuse when the key switch is in the start position. Do you know if the pump relay is getting power from both sources and a ground from the computer ? Can you run a hot wire to the blue black wire going to the pump and keep it running ?

95' camry wagon, fuel pump only comes on when key is turned to start position. if car starts will not stay running. how do i check the fuel pressure regulator /

I don't think the EFI relay is at fault. Other things would be dead if it was, including the starter. See here p177 to test fuel pressure, which may be too low if the fuel pump itself or the pressure regulator is faulty.

Hello, When I turn the key to crank my truck the fuel pump kicks on in the crank position. When I let off the key it stops. The starter does nothing. I tested the starter it is very strong.I get no power...

the fuel pump will only run for a few seconds untill there is pressure in the line then it will stop untill you use the gas and lower the pressure then it will come back on for a few.
only run most of the time when you are driving about 60 or more.
to keep the pressure on the line.
if your jeep is a 5 speed there is a switch on the clutch pedel that closes when you step on the clutch for the starter to engage.
automatics have one also under dash so it will only work in park or netrule.

Car wont start, put in new battery new terminals check fuses. have lights but it dosent kick over

If it is an automatic, try starting in Neutral.If that works than it is a bad Neutral start switch-- which is located in the transmission shift lever.
If it is a stick shift than it could be the clutch switch, whish is located on the clutch pedal.
Or if all that does not make a difference, check the starter relay,located in the fuse/relay box in the engine compartment.
If the relay is good than you are left with abad starter.

93 camry has power wont start, thought it was starter solenoid, replaced w/new starter and solenoid,battery and fuses good still no start

Had the exact same problem on the same car and it was the fuel pump relay. Either replace this or swap it with a headlight relay to verify.

Toy turns over but wont run change fuel filter n fuel pump still

The fuel pump should run for a second or two when you first turn the key on, but then shuts down to prevent the engine from flooding if the computer does not get a signal from the crank or cam sensors which the computer uses to trigger the ignition system. So no spark no fuel. Check to see if you have a spark in the ignition system.

Engine turns over, but fuel pump doesn't turn on. The Toyota Camry 1994 had a little hesitated just before it was parked. The next day only the starter turned over.

Car doesn't start

Yes camry 97/98 does have fuses that control fuel pump.

Recharge battery and have a look at your kick-starter.
