Report: "No start" Due to Pickup Coil Failure Inside Distributor
Toyota Camry Problem
Engine Affected: 2.2L 4 Cylinder
Average Mileage: 192,169 mi (100,000 mi - 298,000 mi)
The pickup coil inside the distributor can fail and cause a no-start condition. There have also been some failures of the radio noise suppressors inside the distributor which can short out. It is recommended to replace the whole distributor with a complete genuine Toyota distributor if any of its components fail.
the car runs great but only for about 10 miles. then it shuts down as if there is no ignition. after it cools dow for awhile it starts again

While driving the car after it was warmed up it would just stop. Could not start again until it cooled down. Let car idle in driveway for about a half hour and it stopped. Checked for spark and there was none. Waited about 15 min and it was back. Replaced complete distributor and car runs great. This has happened twice to this car. First around 140,000 mi and then around 230,000 mi.
