Question about 1988 Toyota Camry

2 Answers

Starting problem I have a 1988 Camry, when I try to start it, it has alot of juice but it seems like it isn't getting any fuel to start it up. The car has been running fine but yesterday, it just shut down while I was driving (35 mph) and I had to have it towed home.

1988 ford f250 302v8 5speed 4wd. truck wont start. has good fuel pressure and compression. i grounded one of the plug wires and got a nice fat orange spark. if left to sit for a day or 2 it will run when...

First of all. you have to line up the rotor to the number one distributor tower with the engine at O" TDC, so your timing probably was initially correct. Sounds like you are getting TOO MUCH FUEL. Could be fuel pressure regulator located on fuel rail. Also your plugs are probably fouled too from all the excess fuel.

When my 1988 toyota camry sits for a day or two without driving, the first initial start does not fire-up as I turn the key. I have to hold the key in the start position and the car will eventually start

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.

Fuel pump is bad or plugged fuel filter it seems. Crack the line from the filter leading towards the engine first. If gas starts squirting out fast, you have good pressue. If not the filter is plugged or a bad pump. How old is the fuel filter by chance? If original its plugged up by now

Will not start without starting fluid

Try Running a Couple of Cans of B12 Chemtool through a Full tank of Gas one Can at a Time. I use this in ALL my Vehicles at every other Fill up and it keeps the Valves and Fuel System Clean all Year long. You can get this at your Auto Parts Store or Wal-Mart in Automotive. It will Clean up the Valves and Plugs and should Eat away that Carbon Build up. Could even Help with the Starting Problem also. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!
