93 camry won't start after stalling

Asked by May 03, 2014 at 05:38 PM about the 1993 Toyota Camry

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Started bogging down during
acceleration (rpms soaring).  Usually
occurred in a.m., seemed to do better
after car warmed-up & on warm
days.  Tried higer grade fuel (thought
it could be etanol seperation issue).  
Ran better, problem solved--NOT..
One morning, after diving about 7
miles, I parked, turned the car off
etc...back in car within 15 min; it
would not start.  Hours later, cranked
right up.  Spouse posited i'd ran it too
low on fuel, so drove it to station
died right at pump.  Put fuel in but
wouldn't start.  Changed fuel filter &
pump.  Still not starting or running
properly.  If it sits for 2-3 hours it will
start & run for about 10 mins, then
die.  Whereupon it will not start again
for several hours.

Try replacing your distributor. I have had the same issue with a '95 Camry and an '89 4x4. It would run great, then once you shut it off, it wouldn't start again for quite some time. I finally hot wired the ignition switch with a push button start direct to the battery. Solved the problem. But I was talking with a buddy one day and he said it was due to a bad pick up coil in the distributor. There is also the possibility of a bad radio noise suppressor in the distributor.
