All cars require a little priming. Try this, turn the key on, let it sit for about 30 seconds then try and start your car. When you first turn the key, the fuel pump will begin pushing fuel. My Mustang does the same thing when its been cold. Of course, in Tucson it does not get cold very often.

WHY DOES MY TOYOTA CAMRY SMOKE WHEN YOU FIRST START IT AND ANY TIME IT SITS FOR 6 OR 7 HOURS AND START IT AGAIN


It means you could have a trickle coolant leak into a cylinder or cylinders somewhere if its white smoke. When the vehicle sits the accumulated coolant has to be burnt off when started and it smokes. During driving the leak at the moment is probably not big enough to be noticeable when its being burnt off by the engine. If its initially blueish\grayish smoke, then your rings are wearing

I recently purchased a 1998 Camry. It was fine for a few days. I let it sit without driving it for 2 days and it needed a jump start. Today, I jumped it again and 2 hours later it won't start. I checked...


There very will could be a battery drain, but what I would do first, is go to any auto parts, where they will do a battery test for free, could have a bad cell in the battery and not holding a charge.
