Might be your temperature sensor or coolant sensor that is bad. Any check engine light? Have it looked at before you replace anymore parts. You don't want to keep throwing money at it.


also just because your wire is firing means that the coil is good but doesnt really mean that the distributor wires or good. but do check those sensors mention before I had the same starting problem and it was the sensors


Spray water on your coil and distributor cap at night with the engine running. If you see blue sparks jumping, you know you will have to replace them. When my old Camry quit on me for no reason, I found out that the large main air intake hose had a large crack in it. It was actually sucking too much air and the car would just quit. Easy fix if it's just the air hose.......
