2007 Toyota Camry

Asked by Nov 15, 2016 at 03:45 PM

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2007 Toyota camry LE. The car starts
when it wants to. It is turning over, but just wont
start. If i let the car sit for 30 mins to an hr it would
start right back up. Then i will drive it for days with
NO problem. I have taken my car to a Toyota
dealership 3 times for this issue and they have not
found the problem. I have replaced my battery,
alternator and Oxygen censor (Toyota
recommendations after servicing my car) within
the past 2 months and still having the same
problem. Can someone please let me know what
the problem could be? This is very frustrating.

When this happens, spray some quick start in the throttle body and see if it starts for a bit, if it does, it's fuel related issue. Check fuel pressure. If it doesn't, check for spark at the spark plugs.

I had this problem with a Subaru Outback. It turned out to be a bad battery cable. Make sure terminals are clean (between battery and cable) and connection is solid.You can have a local shop test cables for you to insure they are working properly. For some reason the car liked to crank over when cold but had difficulty starting when warm or hot (or recently cranked over). I would start there.

@Salgus If car turns over, it's not the battery cables
