2001 Camry trouble starting

Asked by Jul 03, 2013 at 05:00 PM about the 2001 Toyota Camry LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2001 Camry has been giving me trouble off and on over the last week or so when
starting. Sometimes it would start fine, sometimes lights would come on the starter
would click but the engine would't turn then a few moments later it would start up, one
time it turned over slowly but started after I gave it some gas. Over the last couple of
days I've noticed that if I turn the ignition to On and let the fuel pump prime before
cranking it starts fine every time. Does anyone know some likely causes to this?

Also unrelated but my air conditioner knob that dictates where the air flows (feet/main
vents/front windshield/etc) is stuck blowing on the front windshield the knob turns and
doesn't seem loose or striped but it doesn't change anything, any idea what that could
be or how I could go about fixing that?

The first issue with not starting, you want to have your battery looked at. Check the voltage, 12.3 V or better, if that is OK, then look at replacing the fuel pump. Second issue with the AC, sounds like a vacuum hose is cracked or broken that controls the blend doors, or it could be the blend door itself, hard to diagnose from where I'm at
