    As it dies, do the lights go dim, any electric items stop working? Not necesasarily a solution, but I would suggest having a VAT40 test ran on it at your nearest Autozone to see if there is a quick solution as the VAT40 test has the ability to check about 90% of your electrical system to diagnose any issues with main parts that it may be as wwell as voltage leaks you may be experieincing. I have a 99 Chevy Lumina that had the similar issue and it turned out to be a door li\ock controller; it was constantly using current due to it being faulty (over used). Hope this helps.

Is the check engine light on? Rent a scanner, read the codes and pursue the clues to repair. It sounds like the primary problem is either the fuel pump (it should only run a few seconds after key-on, then shuts itself off. If it keeps running, it is likely a bad pump) or a plugged fuel filter.

1998 toyota camry 2.2 wont start after running for and hour it will crank over but it wont start if you wait thirty minutes then it will start


Hi Dress, Have a diagnostic inspection carried out and at the same time ask for a new fuel filter to be fitted. After that has been done ask for a fuel pressure test to be carried out on the fuel pump. It should be 3.4 bar and if its lower it requires replacement. Regards John
