Camry turns over wont fire

Asked by Sep 04, 2016 at 10:34 AM about the 1989 Toyota Camry DX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I am getting spark.  New Fuel pump from tank to engine  is
good.  Squirt starter fluid and runs for about 30-40 secs. When
starter fluid burns off....engine dies and buzzing alarm heard
from engine compartment for about 5-10 secs.

If she briefly runs with starter fluid....you most likely have a fuel delivery/injection problem. Is the CEL ON when the engine runs briefly? What WE do is install a fuel pressure gauge and a NOID Test Light. If the fuel pressure is not to specs...the car will not run correctly. The noid light checks the Computer's ability to turn on and off the INJECTORS. So....without an investment in some test equipment....you are left with checking fuses and replacing parts which may or may not be bad. We would rather TEST parts...rather than just start replacing parts.

Looks as thoughHarbour freight has these items for sale. Is it of good enough quality for me to use them?
