1995 Toyota Camry Q&A
1995 Toyota Camry Question: Takes two hrs for vehicle to start up.
when i drive my car and turn it off,I usually have to wait for two hours just to start it back up again like nothing was ever wrong with it. What can it be? Ia it the electrical coil? someone told me to check that. Also whenever I stop driving and get out the car, i something smells hot, so i dont know if thats the engine or what, but it has plenty of water and also the temp gauge is not on red. - tsand08
When the vehicle wont start, can you hear the starter turning over the engine? Please explain the symptoms when it wont start. - Bret Bodas
Try a crank sensor.The only fail during heat. To test it take it out and boil water then dip in water take out and then test the resitance. Hope this helps - Visitor
Sounds like excessive resistance in the starter circuit from the way you describe the problem. Clean and check voltage drop of all the connection, then check amperage draw of the starter. - Visitor
hmmmm,,strange problem!! Do you smell gas while starting it,,,Try pushing the pedal to the floor while starting,(This gives more air if flooding) then if no result,,, start pumping the gas pedal.. should smell gas if that doesnt make it start to at least sputter,, car is not getting any fuel....burning smell could be serpentine belt.... I have seen this happen and be the starter but, usually happens when car is cold,,although could have a starter that while hot the coil in the starter expands too much,,,,I would try the jumper cables from another car like the previous guy mentioned--sounds like a good place to start - mackieman1967
