Question about 1997 Toyota Camry
I put diesel accidentally in the fuel tank (aprox 3 gal). When I noticed, I filled the tank with gas. The car kept running but, on idle was at 1500 rpms. Once the tank of gas finished the car didn’t want to start again. (Although I did crank it up putting starting fuel in the airflow. But did not start again. It acts as if its going to start and then shuts off.
We have checked the computer and are is ok. The spark plugs are receiving electricity. The fuel pump in the gas tank seems to be pumping fine. But it looks like the injectors are not receiving fuel.
Could it be one of the sensors?
Unfortunately diesel leaves a residue in the lines and on the injectors.
There is only one cure for this, take out the injectors and get them serviced and flush all the fuel lines out with clean gasoline.
