Question about 2002 Toyota Camry Solara

1 Answer

My toyota solara 2002 has a cylinder 6 misfire, and the motor sounds like hell. It dies after about a minute. There are squeeks, that sounds like something in the motor like a rod maybe? is knocking. I'm hoping not a rod. Can someone help?

I would check the spark plug and wire first. The simplest answer are the best, and that is what i would check first. The squeking might the compression leaking out, but I would check the plugs and wires first, especially if they have never been changed before.

Get the compression test done on each coil.these will let you know if its faulty coil or not.


It can be issue with spark plugs or faulty spark plugs. Also get the compression test done for cylinders. If any of cylinder shows low compression then required, then that particular cylinder will cause misfire.

Also get obd codes scanned, the error code will let you know which cylinder is misfiring or all cylinders are misfiring.

Firing order for 2002 toyota runner

The firing order is 1-2-3-4-5-6 but it uses direct ignition so it has a coil for each spark plug.
The cylinders on the passenger side are 1-3-5 and the driver side is 2-4-6.

Brake pedal

You will need to bleed the brake fluid again starting at the furthest wheel cylinder working your way up to the closest to the master cylinder. This way you will remove all air from the lines. Do the master cylinder last. The ABS must be done as well before the master cylinder
