The camry doesn't have a prime. You need to power the fuel pump directly from the battery by using jumpers. If the pump is running but isn't gettin good pressure, then you installed the wrong fuel pump, or your fuel filter may be plugged.

I have a 97 Camry 4 cylinder that hasa hard time starting. It does not sound like a starter problem. I believe it is a fuel problem.
Here is what happens
1st crank - click no start
2nd crank - Click no start
3rd crank - Click half start
4th crank - Click and starts like it should.
This is repeated everytime i start the car, but other than that it runs just fine. Problem has been like this about two weeks or so. Since it was the holidays I just drove my jeep cherokee. But i need to get this fixed before i get back to the normal routine... I have a few ideas what it might be, but no definite.
#68 of 116 update on hard to start
Jan 02, 2007 (1:26 pm)
I had the timing belt replace about a month ago. Could this have any effect Could it run fine for a few weeks then slip, causing this issue? I also have an anti theft detterent system from toyota that when doing the starting cycle beeped and lit up the red indicator and would not start until i removed the key and tried again. Before this everything was fine.

Either the timing belt or the theft deterrent could be the problem, but it's hard to say over the internet.
You could go to an auto parts store. The ones in my area (most commonly Advance Auto) do free checking of the charging system (alternator and battery).

I'm probably in the wrong site for this but I'll try my luck. I parked my 1993 Camry LE the other day and I noticed some steam coming from the engine. I could not see any leaks and there was still some presure in the upper rad hose. The car was difficult to start but I did manage to get it going. The engine temperature gage was reading hot so I tried to take some of the heat off the engine by turning on the interior heater. Just cold air came out. The ac was off the heater turned to high. This led me to believe I was out of coolant. I drove a bit more making sure the temp. indicator didn't hit the red area. The car then died. I checked the rad and it was bone dry. I went to get a gallon of coolant and put it in the rad. I tried to start the car and all it does is turn over. All the belts move and there is some compression at the tail pipe. I think it MAY be the EFI relay. There is a click at the relay when the key is turned on but there is no HUMMMMM anymore. This may be the fuel pump engaging. I'm fine with the new water pump. Fuel systems.....HELP PLEASE

Let it totally cool down overnight, and then fill the radiator with water. You getting no heat out of the heater indicates that there isn't water in the heater coil and radiator, which you now know.
If you were trying to restart it when hot, you could have too much metal friction.

#74 of 116 1995 Camry engine died as I was driving
Sep 22, 2008 (11:27 am)
It simply died as I was driving ~35 mph. It had a full tank and no engine lights were on prior to it dying. I know fuel pumps can just go out, but what should I check first?

Could be a thousand things.
Does the starter crank the engine, indicating that the battery has voltage?
Have you had the timing belt replaced in the last 90K miles? Could be the timing belt broke...so check to see if your camshaft is turning.
Assuming that is okay, pull a plug and check for a spark.
