Well it was'nt the timing belt! Turns out it's all in the fuel pump. If i turn the ignition to the on position for about 5 to 10 seconds before starting, it cranks right up.

After getting gasoline, it increases wrong mileage with camry 2003


One tank of gas is not enough to compare mileage. Or are you saying the computer's readout of mpg estimate is showing less? Try a tank or two of premium and see if that helps. Keep track of gas mileage. Driving techniques have a lot to do with gas mileage, as does long trips vs. short trips, highway cruising vs. city driving. For best mileage, do regular maintenance and keep the car in top running condition-good spark plugs and clean filters and clean oil ! Attend to minor problems before they escalate.
If you want to check actual miles per gallon, start with a full tank. Write the odometer reading down, and go. Everytime you put gas in, write down the amount. When you are close to 1,000 miles from the time you started, go fill the tank and include that amount of gas to your previous list. Now add up all the gas used and divide it into the miles to get miles per gallon. (976 miles/31.8 gallons = 30.69 mpg ) . Only one tank will skew your numbers, might be off cause the tank was filled more to the top than the previous fill-up. About a thousand miles of driving will give you a very accurate figure of miles per gallon for your car.

I just want to know the mpg for a 1994 toyota camry le 4 cylinder it has 214,000 but looks very good?????????????


If this is a car you own ... figure it out ... miles driven divided by gallons. Example ... drove 100 miles, then bought 10 gallons of gas to fill up the tank = 10 MPG This is an example ... not an estimate of the MPG of your vehicle.

We ran it out of gas and it started chugging and wouldn't run so we changed the fuel filter and it still is running awful still chugging we clean top of carberator and still is chugging what can i do?


the first thing i would do is put some STP gas treatment with fuel injector cleaner in it also make sure you have at less a half tank of gas in it and drive it on a back road where you can get up to 55mph Merry Christmas and Happy New Year as always wish you the best of luck Michigan Man

Fuel is not getting to the fuel filter in my 1987 toyota tercel. how do i fix this? i think there is a clog in the gas lines but how do i get to them?


Make sure you have power to your fuel pump. If so, remove the filter, and use an air hose to blow the line out going into the tank.

Suggest that you read the entries posted under cars/t594234-toyota_lacks_power at this fixya website. 87-90 Toyota Tercels have significant carburetor problems.
