1993 camry won't start , they say might just be the fuel pump relay

Asked by Apr 16, 2014 at 12:51 PM about the 1993 Toyota Camry

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Thanks in advance, We have a 1993 camry that kept stalling out ( 1st time was when trying to get out of a plowed in snow bank), sometimes it would restart and other times it wouldn't. Had it towed to a mechanic that came recommended and they stunk ,replaced all kinds off stuff -distributor coil, plugs, complete tune up. And when we picked up the car it was idling high within two days it died again and won't restart. We have a friend  who messes with cars and he first tried to replace the fuses and he said those were fine, then we put a new fuel pump in and that wasn't it ( returned that) and it has a new battery cause from trying to restart it battery died (it was old anyway) so now our friend says it might be the fuel pump sensor? I can order through his work for $110 or calling around to Toyota dealers 78 plus tax and shipping. I'm on the fence if we spend the money and risk it or just have the car towed to another mechanic. So I'm asking the experts to help sway me... or push me off the edge !

You said you replaced fuel pump and that wasn't it so you returned it? That doesn't make sense. It sounds like you put in a new fuel pump, put car back together, it still didn't start, so you tore car apart again, put old fuel pump back in, and then returned the new one which is now fuel soaked? Is that right? Has anyone bothered to pull a spark plug wire and see if you even have spark?
