Question about 1993 Toyota Camry V6
Will not start, has no spark. Where to start?? coil,ICM or what and where?
The Toyota 4 cylinder engines have a problem with the electronic units inside the distributor. You will need to replace the entire distributor to fix the problem. You can get aftermarket distributorsat ebay or similar sites for alot cheaper than the originals. It's an easy swap that will take about an hour to do if you are mildly mechanically inclined.

First thing to do is to check the easy things.... Open the fuse cover and make sure that the fuse for the EFI system is ok...Check that the main EFI relay is secure and fitted correctly.
Once you've done that, then check the connections to the distributer are all secure...Next make sure the plugs have spark, by pulling out one of the plug leads and with a screw driver inserted into the business end and making sure you don't touch the metal part of the tool, hold it about five mm above the engine block....Make sure that the car is out of gear with the park brake on....Get someone to turn the starter and see if theres a spark.
If there's still no spark you can replace the distributer or you can replace the igniter, which you'll find inside the same unit....Let us know how you get on and we can give you more help if you need it...
