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.

I have a 93 toyota camry V6 it had a head gasket leak. after replacing the gaskets it would not start. after several hours of checking I found that it is flooding. after cleaning the plugs and drying the cylinders it will fire for about 2 seconds and then I have to do it all over again. does anybody have any ideas

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.

This should be easy if it died and wont start. Like the last post check engine timing belt then check big fuses outside in the engine compartment in the black box.
The answers in the black box.
#77 of 117 Please help, car keeps stalling
Oct 02, 2008 (11:10 am)
I have a 97 camry v6 with 160k. It will crank and start just fine, but after about 3 seconds it dies like it is out of gas. If I restart it, it will crank normally and start right up, and do the same thing. It dies every time, without fail. If you press the pedal, it will run a little longer, but the rpms keep falling until it dies. If you hold it at 3 thousand or higher, it keeps running, but roughly. I don't know too much about cars and can't afford to play the guessing game. I think it must be fuel delivery. could it be a fuel pump? fuel filter? fuel pressure pump? some kind of sensor. any ideas are appreciated. thanks

Sounds like an air induction problem or the computer getting a bad fuel/air mixture signal.
Check the duct going into the intake and big rubber hoses attached to the intake manifold and this duct. It starts at the air filter. At three thousnd it might not pick up the air leak since more air is running through the engine at that speed.

I missed runs rough after starting at 3000 rpm's.
I d do your own compression check on the front bank and the one spark plug on the rear bank of cylinders. To get started, you need a spark plug socket and ratchet and extension, plus compression gage at Sears $30.00 dollars. Check My Carspace.

I had my brother help me look at the car. We couldn't find any vacuum leaks. He did an old fashioned test of putting a little bit of gas in the air filter to see if the car is getting fuel. Sure enough, the car ran fine until it burned out the gas, and then it stalled. He thought that was a sure sign of a fuel pump problem. We replaced the fuel pump, and it did not fix the problem. It did not seem like there was much or any fuel pressure in the lines. Is there a way to check the pressure in the line? Is it possibly some air flow issue still, even given the fact that it keeps running with gas poured in the air ducts (which seems like fuel delivery to me)? What about EGR or iac valves or mas airflow sensor? These parts are expensive--is there any way to test them? the car is throwing a code, but I don't want to spring a hundred and fifty bucks for the reader unless it will tell me exactly what is going on. Thanks
