2002 Toyota Camry 2.4 . Why won't my car start and run?
2002 Toyota Camry 2.4 4 cyl. 300,000 miles.Replace fuel pump 2 months
ago.Car ran great.Then it started to start rough and then quit running. Fuel
pump not working. Replaced fuel pump again,I can hear the pump run and I
konw it getting power.The car tries to start for a second and dies.I sprayed
starting fluid and it starts right up for a few seconds. There is only one
filter,the one on the fuel pump. Why won't my car start and run?
300,000 miles, WOW! You're not complaining, are you?? When was the last time you had your car serviced?
If it will run on starting fluid for a few seconds then you are definitely not getting fuel to the throttle body. Are you sure there's only one filter? The 2001 Camry had one just behind the air box. Check it out in this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p3hEqkqc7sQ Have you checked the fuel pump relay as well? The only other things would be a bad fuel pressure regulator or no power to the injectors. You can test for fuel pressure with a gauge and you can test the injectors with a noid light. If injectors are getting zero power, that means your computer is bad. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_teotIHmz7U
Wel Markw1952 was no help whatsoever. And Reelin68 suggets I see a video on a 2001 Camry (i have a 2002) .And the other video is selling a noid light which only works if THE CAR IS RUNNING! LOL Thanks for trying anyway guys.
If the fuel pressure isn't right ....nothing is right. Car is broke. Need Fuel Pressure Gauge installed for proper diagnosis.
jimmbo77-. How is my post not helpful? I asked you when you last had your car serviced?? Look, maybe you work on your car, but, remember, modern cars are like rolling computers, so, if you are stuck, maybe you really need a professional in this case... And, I'm congratulating you on going 300,000 miles, that's a remarkable achievement in anyone's book... This car owes you nothing, even if you crushed the whole damn thing, you would have still been ahead.. I don't know if you plan to try for another 100K, or maybe you had to put in a new transmission.. , but, again, you've gone 300,000 miles. SO, be happy that you are actually one of the lucky ones that made it this far one one car!
New parts are NOT always good parts. Check the Fuel Pressure with the appropriate gauge.
so Jimmbo....what's new concerning the issue with this vehicle?
