Have Toyota Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
I would first do a compression test, compression should be at least 145 psi if cylinders are much lower then that I would assume the timing is either off or you have a valve problem. Once you have the timing marks alligned you should rotate it 2 times to verify they go back to the proper marks. Let me know if you have questions. Thanks
While I agree that could be a possiblity,it would be a very remote for the compression to go bad on my all of a sudden, This car has has run great with lots of power and just developed a slight miss on acceleration. It never had a problem starting before. Started up right away almost immediatly, whether hot or cold. Only after I installed the new parts. Sorry, low compression can not be it.
I just dont understand how the ignition or even valve timing could be affected or changed when I just replaced spark plugs, and fuel injectors?
It just doesnt make sense.
Sorry can not do that.
You have not told me anything new. I need the assistance of a Toyota expert, someone who knows the v6 engine used in Camry's, Solaras, and even Lexus 300's.
Please forward question to someone who meets my criteria.
I have been working on cars for a long time, this has me baffled.
I see your question is a few hours old, I just came online, do you need assitance from a Lexus and Toyota expert still?
If you would take the time to read my post, it pretty much tells it like it is for my problem.
I be happy to answer any further questions, but do not feel that my engine could degredate itself to the point of losing all compression just by sitting a few days.
Car is still dead in the water. (just a joke you understand)
THank you for the reply.
Does your car have the optional factory immobilizer/security system with the red "security" indicator? If so what does this indicator do when trying to start?
Yes sir it does.
And that was the answer.
I cycled the key fob a couple of times and the engine started right up.
I am humbled.
you are welcome, the immobilizer was tripped, I will submit this reply as an "answer" since my questions led to an answer above, let me know if more input is needed at a later time.Glad I could help.
Yes, I am working with billing dept to get that corrected.
Just wanted to confirm for youCustomerthat the billing department has resolved this and credited me for the question, I am unable to leave you positive feedback as the credit was manually posted otherwise I would do so.
If you need future assistance please feel free to request me by name. Thank you again and happy holidays.
