Question about Toyota Camry

1 Answer

I HAVE A 1992 TOYOTA CAMRY. IT STALLS INTERMITTENLY. SOMETIME IT WOULD START RIGHT UP OTHER TIME WE HAVE TO PUMP THE PEDAL MANY TIMES THEN IT BARELY STARTS. THEN IT WOULD REV UP TO 15 TO 1800 RPM. WHEN I PUSH DOWN ON THE PEDAL IT SPUTTERS A LITTLE. AT TIMES IT DROVE FINE FOR 10 - 12 MILES. TURN OFF THE MOTOR, THEN IT JUST CRANKS. PLEASE POINT ME IN THE DIRECTION. PLUGS, WIRES, ROTOR CAPS HAS BEEN CHANGED.

Reading Codes 1982–95 MODELS All models except the 1MZ-FE engine is equipped with OBD I till 1995.

  1. Make sure the battery voltage is at least 11 volts.
  2. Make sure the throttle valve is fully closed.
  3. Place the gear shift lever in Neutral. Turn all accessories off.
  4. The engine should be at normal operating temperature.
  5. Using a jumper wire, connect terminals TE1 and E1 of the Data Link Connector 1 (DLC1).
  6. Turn the ignition switch ON, but do not start the engine. Read the diagnostic code by the counting the number of flashes of the malfunction indicator lamp.
  7. Codes will flash in numerical order. If no faults are stored, the lamp flashes continuously every 1⁄2 second. This is sometimes called the Normal or System Clear signal.
  8. After the diagnosis check, turn the ignition OFF and remove the jumper wire.
  9. Compare the codes found to the applicable diagnostic code chart. If necessary, refer to the individual component tests in this section. If the component tests are OK, test the wire harness and connectors for shorts, opens and poor connections.

    I also would look into the possibility of a throttle position sensor being bad, or a crankshaft position sensor going bad, if so equipped or a map sensor.



    These are common engine controls to go bad over time and exposure to heat.



    But, one needs to see if there are any codes recorded on the system.

    It would also be helpful to know the engine size and submodel of 1992 Toyota Camry.

    the code i retrieved is #31. what do i need to fix this problem

  • Duane Wong

    OK, as far as I can see code 31 stands for vacuum control circuit problem. This could mean that a vacuum hose is not connected as it should be, or the MAP sensor is bad:



    Try to study the vacuum hose diagrams as follows to see if you are missing a vacuum line or it's disconnected:



    VACUUM DIAGRAMS
    Following are vacuum diagrams for most of the engine and emissions package combinations covered by this manual. Because vacuum circuits will vary based on various engine and vehicle options, always refer first to the vehicle emission control information label, if present. Should the label be missing, or should vehicle be equipped with a different engine from the vehicle's original equipment, refer to the diagrams below for the same or similar configuration.
    If you wish to obtain a replacement emissions label, most manufacturers make the labels available for purchase. The labels can usually be ordered from a local dealer.





    Fig. 1: A vacuum diagram label is located under the hood — 1MZ-FE engine shown







    Fig. 2: Emission control system — 2S-ELC engine Canada







    Fig. 3: Emission control system — 2S-ELC engine except Canada







    Fig. 4: Emission control system — 2VZ-FE engine







    Fig. 5: Emission control system — 3S-FE engine







    Fig. 6: Emission control system — 3VZ-FE engine







    Fig. 7: Emission control system — 1992–95 California 5S-FE engine







    Fig. 8: Emission control system — 1992–95 except California 5S-FE engine







    Fig. 9: Emission control system — 1996 A/T 5S-FE engine







    Fig. 10: Emission control system — 1996 M/T 5S-FE engine







    Fig. 11: Emission control system — 1MZ-FE engine

    Check the EGR Valve with a vacuum pump to make sure it's opening or closing.





    If it doesn't act any differently, you know that the EGR diaphragm is punctured or worn and the EGR Valve should be replaced before going on further. It could also be dirty at the pintle of the EGR Valve.



    If the EGR Valve doesn't hold vacuum, then that also means the diaphragm is punctured or worn.



    If the EGR Valve holds vacuum, and nearly stalls the motor out when vacum is applied to it, then that's normal.

    Vacuum not vacum (that was a typo).

Long crank time 92 camry


This can be caused by a defective electric fuel pump inside the fuel tank. The problem that occurs is that the fuel pressure check valve in the pump fails, this lets the fuel drain back into the fuel tank and causes long crank times/hard staring and stalls on initial start..
