Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Toyota camry 1996 le v6. Sometimes I turn
the key and the car starts. It usually does
this a couple of times. But then will no
longer start. Check engine light will not trip.
It has stalled once when the issue first
started but not since then. Battery seems to
be fine. Car reader won't work. Turns but
does not start. Pulled gas filter pump seems
to be fine. We have no clue.

Sounds like it's time for a tuneup also check and replace air filter if necessary, clean throttle with throttle body cleaner, add fuel injector cleaner to gas tank and replace fuel filter if have not done so in awhile.

I did all that and still nothing. The only thing I could not do is change the fuel filter. The bottom bolt was stuck. Figured once it's up and running I'll let a mechanic deal with that nightmare
