Question about 1996 Toyota Camry

2 Answers

Car won't start

My 1996 toyota Camary won't start and I have had no problems. I stopped at a video store to get a video, came out and couldn't get it started. It clicks like my blinker is on but will not turn over at all. I don't have a owners manual so I don't know if there is a safety feature preventing my car from starting or if there is something wrong. The battery is only a year old and my windows and radios work just fine. any ideas?

Like that other guy who posted about "overheated car"...your car could think that it is overheated, or it is...thus it won't start till it cools down after a long while...Temperature sending unit could be real old and corroded/rusted, thermostat could be many problems that could be happening...

Check to see if you are getting any spark to the plugs, if not then the wireing on the starter is wrong or you arched the wire while changeing the starter

If I were you, I would have the timing checked. If that is OK, then I would look very closely at the ignition coil, which is located under the distributor. If it is cracked or displays any burn marks, the coil is your issue. Both are common problems on the 91s, I would check the coil appearance first.

If you need further assistance, please feel free to respond back.
A FIxYa rating would be appreciated.
