Camry turns over but won't start.

Asked by Jan 31, 2017 at 11:23 AM about the 2003 Toyota Camry LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Car won't start. I drove it all day then parked it over night. Go out the next
morning and it turns over easily but doesn't start. Its a 2003 Toyota Camry 4
liter. I was told this sounds like a distributor cap going out but then I was told
that this car doesn't have a distributor cap. Any ideas?

If the engine Cranks over well but does not FIRE UP....start...we would start the diagnosis with a scan tool...a spark tester....and a noid light in place to check for Codes stored in computers...ignition spark at the SP....and computer injection pulses at the fuel injectors. If we confirm injector pulses...and spark...we we then install a fuel pressure gauge to check fuel delivery. Having explained what the pro's would do...what can YOU do to get your vehicle running again? Well... not much. You need to get her to the repair shop for a diagnosis. However..you might consider trying this. Get under the rear of the vehicle and smack the bottom of the gas tank with th palm of your hand a few times. Assuming you are not out of gas...you might nudge a failing fuel pump into working again. If you find the engine fires up...uura...you just diagnosed a bad fp. BTW?..how much gas is in the gas tank?
