Customer Question

Afriend bought a 85 camry. runs great, but after a while when he drove it, it would cut off, and wouldn't restart. After a while, it would start again and run, only to shut off again. He replaced all the spark plugs and spark plug wires, replaced the electric coil.

I corrected my mistake. It was a 1995 toyota Camry, with a110,000 miles. The gas guage does not work, so he thought it might have run out of gas, but when he put gas in it, it was full. He drives it, when you slow down, it wants to go down to idle, about 10 muinutes and it shuts off, after about an hour it strarts and goes again. he changed wires, spark plugs, new rotary cap, new coil, and fuel pump.
