Question about 1993 Toyota Camry V6

Open Question

1993 Toyota Camry. The vehicle quit while driving. It won't start. I replaced the Ignition coil because the resistance measurements were lower than spec. Now it has spark in all cylinders, all injectors are being pulsed and fuel pressure and volume is to spec. The spark plug are covered in fuel when I remove them after cranking the engine. I removed all plugs and installed them into each wire and observed the spark in each plug as I cranked it. I removed the valve cover to make sure the timing belt hasn't jumped and everything is lined up. The rotor on the distributor is pointed at #1 when #1 cylinder is at TDC. and the cam is lined up according to the marks. The exhaust cam is driven by a gear from the intake cam and I'm wondering if the problem is that?

SOURCE: 1992 toyota celica 2.2 timing belt broke.i turned

well hold on there cowboy, first consult your service manual if your cars engine is an interference type. it means that if ever your timing belt breaks the valves that were stranded shall be hammered by up moving piston. eventually bending and warping of some of the valves would be a result. sometimes a damaged piston could also happen. timing belt breakage is a very serious matter and should not be taken likely. if you do not have a manual, what i do is removing the whole cyclinder head and inspect it. its better to be sure than sorry. in other cases you could see the warped valves by turning the crankshaft from tdc to 90 deg. and after which try turning the camshaft all the way around and carefully feeling the ease or difficulty in turning it and also the lift and rest of the rocker arms. any deviations you from the standard filler guage clearances would mean a bent or broken valves. hope this helps.

SOURCE: i have a 1996 toyota

Its most likley going to be the timing belt...

To much too type, there is a lot of details to this job, the best thing to do is to get a book on this particular vehicle, its about $20.00 at a auto parts store. This will give you all the Timing marks, the do's and don't-- locations and torque specs. ect....

How to test ignition coil

You need a sensitive good quality ohm meter, preferably with a zero adjustment, as these readings can be quite low.

The primary resistance is measured between the positive and negative terminals on the coil, and should read about 0.5 ohms (it varies with the model of car).

The secondary is measured usually between the positive terminal and the high tension terminal (thick lead), and is usually about 10 Kilo ohms (again it varies from car to car)

These are usually measured with the coil cool.

The car is a 4cl 1993 no spark.changed coil and igniter

  • Test the Camshaft Sensor
  • Check voltage between the camshaft position sensor terminals. With engine running, voltage should be greater than 0.1 volt AC and vary with engine speed.

  • Check the Crankshaft Position Sensor.
  • Using an ohmmeter, measure the resistance between terminals. Resistance cold should read 1630-2740 ohms and hot; 2060-3225 ohms.


  • Could also be a timing belt issue.

  • Make sure the distributor is spinning (rotor)

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Well first off your vehicle uses the obd1 system not obd2.

Code 43 indicates a problem in the spark control circuit. The computer sets this code when the computer feels that it has lost control of the ignition system. Turn the ignition switch OFF and Unplug the ignition coil. Measure the primary resistance. It should be 0.095 - 1.20 ohms. Measure the secondary resistance. It should be 11,300 - 15,300 ohms. If these are not correct, replace the coil. A Black/Gray wire runs from the computer to the ignition coil. With the ignition switch OFF, unplug the coil and check the continuity of this wire from the coil connector to the computer. The wire should have a low resistance between the ends, and a high resistance to ground. If it measures otherwise, repair the wire. With the key on, measure the voltage from the dark Green/Orange wire to ground. It should be +12 volts. If it is not, turn the key off, remove the ASD relay, and measure continuity from the ignition coil connector to pin 87 in the ASD relay socket. If this is not a low resistance, repair the wire. 08-32-96f3.gif TERMINAL LEGEND NUMBER IDENTIFICATION

Where is the ignition module located in a 1995 camry

  1. Turn the ignition key to the OFF position.
  2. Separate the wiring harness connections.
  3. Unbolt the igniter.
  4. Loosen the nut holding the wire lead onto the coil.
  5. Tag and disconnect the wire lead.
  6. Lift the igniter off its mount.
  7. Installation is the reverse of removal.

The following is related by not the same as the 'ignition module.':
Ignition Coil TESTING 1994–95 Models
  1. Turn the ignition key to the OFF position. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Wait at least 90 seconds from the time the negative battery was disconnected to start work. CAUTION
    Work must be started after 90 seconds from the time that the ignition switch is turned to the LOCK position and the negative battery cable is disconnected from the battery.
  2. Using a 5mm hexagon wrench, remove the 2 cap nuts and the V-bank cover. Fig. 1: Remove the V-bank cover, a 5mm hexagon wrench will be needed — 1MZ-FE engine 89552g58.gif

  3. Disconnect the ignition coil wiring from the coil being tested. Fig. 2: Disconnect the ignition coil wiring from the component being tested — 1MZ-FE engine 89552g59.gif

  4. Insect the primary coil resistance using an ohmmeter. Measure the resistance (cold) between the positive and negative terminals. Resistance should be between 0.54–0.84 ohms. Fig. 3: Attach an ohmmeter to the positive and negative terminals of the coil — 1MZ-FE engine 89552g60.gif

  5. If the resistance is not within specifications, replace the ignition coil.
  6. Reattach the ignition coil wiring.
  7. Reinstall the V-bank cover. Push on the cover until a click is felt, then tighten the cap nuts.
  8. Connect the negative battery cable. Reset any digital equipment such as radio memory and the clock if necessary.

How to remove ignition cylinder from Toyota Camry 1993

Here are step-by-step instructions for the removal and re-installation of your ignition cylinder on your Toyota. Hope this sheds some light on the subject and solves your problem. Have a great day!

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. If equipped with an air bag, wait at least 90 seconds before working on the vehicle.
CAUTIONSome models covered by this guidemay be equipped with a Supplemental Restraint System (SRS), which uses an air bag. Whenever working near any of the SRS components, such as the impact sensors, the air bag module, steering column and instrument panel, disable the SRS, as described in .
  1. Remove the lower steering column cover. Unfasten the ignition switch connector under the instrument panel.
  2. Remove the screws which secure the upper and lower halves of the steering column cover.
  3. Turn the lock cylinder to the ACC position with the ignition key.
  4. Push the lock cylinder stop in with a small, round object (cotter pin, punch, etc.).
On some vehicles, it may be necessary to remove the steering wheel and combination switch first.
  1. Withdraw the lock cylinder from the lock housing while depressing the stop tab.
  2. To remove the ignition switch, unfasten its securing screws and withdraw the switch from the lock housing.
To install:
  1. Align the locking cam with the hole in the ignition switch and insert the switch into the lock housing.
  2. Secure the switch with its screw(s).
  3. Make sure both the lock cylinder and column lock are in the ACC position. Slide the cylinder into the lock housing until the stop tab engages the hole in the lock.
  4. Install the steering column covers.
  5. Connect the ignition switch wiring.
  6. Connect the negative battery cable.
