1996 Toyota Camry Q&A
1996 Toyota Camry Question: Died on the highway, Cranks but won't start. Sparks on cylinder 1 only.
The car died on the highway while my wife was driving. I can not get it to start, it cranks but will not start and the crank sounds normal. It only sparks on the first cylinder, the one on the end of the passenger side. I checked the wires and plugs and they seem to be fine. I replaced the distributor cap and rotor and the igniter. I also checked voltage and resistance on ignition coil, can shaft sensor and crank sensor and they are 12v and normal resistance according to specs. I am truly out of ideas for what could be the problem. - Jayfarley718
Now you say you have spark on only one wire?? Is it good HOT- BLUE spark at the end of the wire that hooks to the plug? Need to know that next. - pushrod
I would remove the timing cover and inspect the belt and make sure there are no teeth missing. - bmdouble
