Have Toyota Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, thanks for posting
Does the engine seem to crank faster than normal? Do you have access to the car now?
Is this the 1ZZ-fe engine or 2 ZZ-FE?
Can you check for spark at the spark plugs?
do you have a voltmeter or a 12 volt test light?
How fast were you going when it stopped?
were there any signs before this, misfire, loss of power?
Ok, we need to start somewhere, checking for spark is usually the first.
IF there is spark we need to check fuel next
You can try putting some fuel directly in the intake and see if there is any response from the engine, might be easier than pulling the plugs out at this time.
Starting fluid is fine, if the spark and ignition system is ok there should be some response like run for a few seconds.
I have to go offline for a couple of hours
If the engine starts using the starting fluid it'a fuel problem which will require further testing, If it does not start it's an ignition problem, with the key on check one of the coil/igniters, there should be 12 volts to the black/white wire, if not start checking fuses under the hood. Let me know what you come up with I'll gt bac to you a little later.
Thanks , what was the code number you were getting?
Replace the sensor that had the wire damage, this is shielded wire so be sure that neither of the insulated wires make contact with the braided shield, check continuity between the two sensor wires, can't shorted together or open circuit, there should be some reistance of around 800 ohms or so.
Ok, waiting to hear back from you.
That's too bad, seems we're back at the beginning so let's check for spark, pull one of the coils out, put a spark plug in it, ground the spark plug body and see if here is a nice blue spark jumping across the electrode.
I don't think so, we need to verify voltage to each of the coils, did you do that altrady? Each coil should have 12 volts at the black white wire.
Ok, I'll have to ch3eck where this voltage is supposed to be coming from.
Did you check with the key on?
The black with white tracer right?
