I just changed my distributor cap and spark plug wires on my 1987 Toyota Camry le.

Asked by Aug 14, 2014 at 05:28 PM about the 1987 Toyota Camry LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The car runs ok but it takes 2 cranks to get it started. Any thoughts?

Fuel pump may be getting tired. Try turning the key to the ON position for about 10 seconds before starting. Let the system pressurize for a bit before starting. See if it starts on the first crank after that.

I tried that but it didn't make much difference. I am getting a strong gas odor from my engine when I start it. Any thoughts? Ken Thanks Reelin68


Sounds like you have a leaky injector.
