Sounds like the ignition timing is retarded too much. When the distributor was replaced it sounds like the timing was incorrectly set. Hope this helps...

Toyota Camry 1993 4 cyl water pump failing, have removed thermostat, considering Electric inline pump as replacement as option ? Please advise me of pro's and con's.


i owned the 1995 4 cyl wide body camry till the cooling system failed in heavy traffic and over heat stripped out the head bolt threads in the block

the toyota camry engine designation is a 5S-FE

water pump is driven by timing belt
behind timing belt covers
they have to be removed to get to the water pump

normally timing belt, seals ,tension er pully and water pump are replaced at the same time ..comes in a kit

i dont have the 5S-FE cooling system hot under pressure specs

so I cant answer which inline electric pump pressure is required to work on the 5S-FE

My 88 toyota camry wont accelerate when i step on the gas pedal


tests:

cruise at say 45mph ok?
if i accelerate , it bogs then catches up?
if i accelerate, it bogs and never catches up?
if i go WOT, wide open throttle it has full power up a hill after the bog?

these test , are the KEY tests.
this tells me what is wrong.
i hope the car is tuned up, if not , why no? the 60k mile done?
