Asked by Oct 18, 2013 at 03:49 PM about the 1996 Toyota Camry LE V6

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

my car will drive for 15 minutes and then stall not giving me no sign of problems. When
i try to start it back up after a few minutes it starts but it only drives for a second and
stalls again acting out of gas when its practically full. My camry is from the late 80's
early 90's battery is from 2010 i don't understand. now after not driving it for only a
couple days it will not start and will not hold a charge. Can u maybe help me with a few
suggestions so i don't spend much money on things that are not wrong.?

try changing the fuel filter.

your battery sounds like it has a dead cell.see if someone will take it to auto zone they will check it for free in most states.call them first.

If changing your fuel filter doen't solve the problem, then the problem could be your fuel pump especially if it's the original one. Most fuel pumps last 12-15 years before replacing them. Try disconnecting the outlet line from your fuel pump that leads to the fuel injector(s), insert the disconnected line into glass or clear plastic container, have someone turn the ignition key weather the car starts or not you should see a good strong flow of fuel burst out into the container indicating that the fuel pump is working well, if the flow is weak then the pump isn't putting out enough pressure meaning a defected fuel pump.
