My 1996 Toyota Camry LE has been in the repair shop

Customer Question

My 1996 Toyota Camry LE has been in the repair shop for almost 2 months. Problem: car starts, then dies, starts, dies. starts, dies. Computer diagnostic shows only 6% gas flow. Entire fuel system checked out. Some parts OK other parts replaced. Still wont run. If it should run for a while stops while driving down the road. Mechanics are stumped. They have called several other repair shops in the area for advice, No one has ever come across this problem before and no suggestions have worked. Do you have any idea how to fix this problem? I am a 74 year old widow with health issues and need my car. Please help !!!

Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist. The most common problem here (that a lot of techs miss) is a bad "Circuit Opening Relay". Most techs do not know that this is the fuel pump relay. I would replace this before I did anything else. If you have any questions, please feel free to reply. A positive rating would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I will pass this info along to the repair shop. If that has already been taken care of, or doesn't work, and car still wont run, I'll be back.
