give every thing a good spray with WD40 that may help start her up,, its a bad idear to use a high presher water hose for cleaning your engine up,,
you just found out way that is! she will go again after she has dryed off again,,
You could be in big trouble if the engine turns over slowly when trying to start when engine is cold (not warmed up). Check the charge in your battery and connections to make sure they are clean. If they are ok and it still turns over slowly and does not start you may have major engine repairs due.
Replace the ignition coil under the distributor cap. What you have is a hairline crack in it, and, when it is damp, the spark arcs out of the crack to ground, no spark. This is a VERY common problem with older Camrys. Take the coil off, and look at it real closely. You will see black marks on it, from the crack. I am very sure that this will eliminate your problem.

anne, it sounds to me like dampness in the ignition process, if the engine is turning over at the turn of the key,then check the rubber ring seal inside your distributer cap(thats the coloured plastic cap with all the leads to the spark plugs) if its perished or showing signs of distortion,replace the whole cap. if its seems ok then try starting your engine at night or at least grey dark,open the bonnet and watch for sparks coming from any of the HT leads ( cable like things) that go to the spark plugs.If present either spray with "sparkseal"(short term solution) or replace the leads.Try this and if it doesn,t solve it , get in touch ok?
Remove the distributor cap & examine the ignition ccoil under the rotor. Does it have any burnt spots or hairline cracks? If so, replace it. Also, replace the plug wires if you replace the coil, if they are more than 5 years old. Coil failures are a VERY common issue.
