Had a similar problem on a 1992 tercel. Hard to find but when checking sparkplugs accidentally found that one of the spark plug cables was internally damaged. Thus the full electrical energy was not being delivered to the spark plug. Upon replacing the distributor cap with all the sparkplug cables, the engine picked up idle speed and run smooth again.

1993 Toyota camry will not start

Check to see how much spark you have. Spark should jump at least a 3/4" inch gap. If it only jumps an eighth to a quarter inch or less than you have weak spark. If the coil is external replace it if the coil is inside the distributor replace the distributor. I almost guarantee this is a week spark issue.

My 1993 toyota camry v6 just died after making a left turn and will not start up turns over just does not wanna fire,could it be numerous things or more of the fuel filter?

it could be alot of things. if the car was running fine before it happened i wouldn't say the fuel filter. if it was dirty enough to clog from taking a turn then the car would have ran poorly. i see alot of ignition issues with these cars.
with out testing you could be chasing your tail and wasting money.

hope this help and please ask any more question you have. good luck

I have a 2002 toyota camry and everytime i come to a stop my car dies.

Hi, this is poor fuel distribution that can be caused by a clogged fuel filter or a faulty fuel pump. i would change both devices to insure maximum performance if not done so already. i would also change the air filter as well. the increased air flow will improve combustion.

Another good point is to add a pint of sea foam to the fuel tank during fill up. this additive, will cleanse the entire fuel system. it removes debris form the fuel rials and lines.

1993 camry running rough

Make sure you don't have a faulty fuel injector, this may be the cause, also use a can of carb spray and spray around the intake gasket to check for leaks, if one is present you will notice a diff in the engine sound when the spray hits it.

I assume that it is starting & idling OK, yes?
First, please look and be certain that the air intake tube that attaches to the end of the intake manifold is not loose, but really tight & secure, and make sure that there are no cracks anywhere on this tube. Secondly, if you do not have genuine Toyota plugs in your engine, you may encounter problems, replace them with the correct plugs. Third, replace the wires if they are over 5 years old.
Fourth, look for any vacuum lines that may be disconnected or crossed.
These are the usual causes, hope this helps.
