Don't crank that engine over is the first thing you do. Take out th eplugs and turn the engine by hand to it's marks. Take the belt off, check it for marks, yes, no? If no, how about the old one? Does it have marks on it? Match them up to the new one. and make marks, , turn the left cam over to it's mark, does it have two? Turn the other side over to it's mark. put the belt on, crank mark on the crank mark, cam marks on the cam marks, don't line up? It should, If the engine hits the valves, you will have to turn the cams at the same time by hand so they don't hit, don't force anything, if you get the belt on there without moving the engine, spin it around a couple times to make sure it stays on it's marks. I hope you didn't do any damage already by trying to start it. Hope this helps.

it sounds like a pipe leaking common place is pipe feed to the engine that runs under the car , it wont leak while car is running as the gas is being pumped around and not sat still in the pipe id check your full feed pipe to the engine for any splits .

You add your fluid in the same tube that your dipstick is in.

Try moving gear lever from park to neutral then starting, if does not start check starter relay, solenoid or ignition switch, contacts could be worn

If it has set up for too long I would try filling up with premium fuel. I am not sure if that has points but if it does under the distributor cap the points can become corroded and make the motor spit and sputter. Otherwise from the camry's I have seen that have sat always ended up having fuel problems. Hope this helps!

The best way is to use the amount that was for 12 as a guild and use the pressure gauge as the test the low side should be just high enough to keep the compresser running with the engine reved up ( highway speed constant) it will be right at the low end of the blue end of the gauge and it should stay below the high end of the blue at idel. if it goes too high it won't cool very well or not at all. The more freon after youhit staying on the less cooling you'll get so try to put in as little as possible just to keep it on and it'll be as cool as it will get. ( not very good ) The old cars don't cool very well on 134A. A new compressor and a comdenser for 134A and the expansion valve too and they still doen't do very well. Make sure everything is as clean as you can get it ( raditor, condenser, Grill, Fan, (running fast). and it might get cool enough that you'll drive with the windows closed ( it's that bad). The cars too old to go though changing all the parts too the sizes that work good in the 93 and newer Camery. And the fitting of these sizes of parts may not really work.

Most likely one of two other things. Either both bulbs are burnt out (can happen) or the fuse for the brake lights is shot. Can test either with a volt meter on continuity test.

There should be a idle air control that controls this,it is most likely the problem.

fit a new rad cap as the seal has gone and thats why its not pulling the coolant back into the rad ,their are two seals on this type of cap one on teh bottom and one on the underside of the lid/cap and its this one that has perished so it allows the fluid to expand into the header bottle but its not holding a seal so a vacumn forms drawing the fluid back into the rad

You just dont have antiskid capabilities. The normal brakes will still work just fine

1987 Toyota... | Answered on Jun 22, 2010

I would say the headlight switch,it is more likely.

First if the fuel level in your tank is low get it filled up. Bad gas or gas that has been sitting around will cause symptomssuch as the one as you car has. Even filling stations sell gas like crazy these days when the prices fall and the the stawage tank that holds their gas becomes very low. That point many contaminates will be pumped into somebodys car such as yours too.
By the time you run the car down at least 5 or 6 gallons after a fill up it should run better. If not possible to drive it in for a fill up fill it at home with gas cans. Borrow some if possible to save on trips back and forth

I do hope this will cure your problem or you have some sort of engine internal problem, or fuel feed line problem such as a bent line, or a bad transmission
