This is usually called pre-ignition. If this is the case then your distributor is too advanced.. You could get a mechanic to reset your ignition timing. They can use a timing light to set the timing to factory settings. Or you can try and do it by ear by loosening the bolt at the base of the distributor and trying to turn the whole distributor till it sounds right.. Or you can go buy a timing light.. taking it to a mechanic will be easiest and its very easy for them to do it so it wont cost much

I have no power on my 89 camry Iput different engine in new timingbelt spark plugs and wires

You mean you have no battery power to start, or that the engine when running produces little or no compression power?

If not starting then make sure the ECU matches the engine you have and that the key is programmed to any new ECU if it is fitted with an RF chip.

Was driving my 89 camry when it just died,im thinking its the timing belt,is this model prown to bent valve,there wasnt any jerking just plan died.

if it cranking really fast like a sewing machine,then good chance it is timing belt .you can take off the top cover and have someone crank the engine and watch the camshaft turn .if not timing belt.otherwise could be ignition .

Need 1990 toyota camry fuse diagram. all windows stopped working.

ore than likely, you have a broken power wire going to the master control switch. Remove the switch, unplug the connector, and see if you have 12 volts with the key on. If not, you have a broekn wire where it comes from the body, at the left kick panel, into the door. I have repaired many 89-90s with this exact same issue.

My 89 camry stalled on me and know it wont start.

No clicking mean no power to the solenoid to engage the contact for the starter. If starter is not turning, you will not have spark. It stalled when you drove since not power to turn on the Electronic Fuel injection so you don't have gas. Now you don't have electric to your starter, then I suggest that you have some one to check ECM before starting replacing Starter, Fuel Injection...

The main cooling fan on my 89 camry runs all the time

It's the fan relay,generally when the temp sensor goes bad the fan won't come on at all.
