2006 Toyota Avalon Won't Start


Asked by Jul 26, 2016 at 08:03 PM about the 2006 Toyota Avalon XLS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2006 Toyota Avalon cut off 3 weeks ago and
would not restart. Initially  It acted like it wanted to
cut on, but would not turn completely over. The
first mechanic diagnosed the problem as a bad
fuel pump and replaced it. The car still was doing
the same thing. When hooked the car up to the
thing that reads the codes from the car computer,
the computer gave no codes at all. He assumed it
was a bad computer, however I had the car towed
somewhere else for a second opinion. After taking
it to the 2nd mechanic (now going on 2 weeks
ago,the car is still there) he put a used computer
on the vehicle because he needed the car to at
least start so that he could find out what made the
computer shut off to begin with. When he replaced
the computer, the car started initially and gave off
codes, now the car (still in the mechanics
possesion) is back at square one and will not start.
He has changed the coils, battery, fuel pump etc
and it won't stay on. Does anybody believe there is
hope for the car? Are these computers something
only the dealer has the necessary tools equipped
to do the job by replacing it? Can a regular
everyday mechanic replace computers in a vehicle
effectively? He has had my car for two weeks and
he said he is going to try some other things ie, the
crank sensor etc., but he concluded that's he has
never been faced with this problem he damn near
changed everything possible to relate to the
problem. He literally said " It's weird". The first
mechanic said something similar before having it
towed, he said "It's a mystery". One lives in south
jersey the other one lives in North Jersey, its not
like the two men know one another. Toyota experts
please help me!
