Vehicle description: 2002 Toyota Camry
4 Cyl car with about 180,000 miles.Friday 11:30 AM Drove about three miles and left it for about 5 minutes.
Returned to find the car would not start. The atmosphere was about 90 F with high humidity.
Returned again about 7:30 that evening, started the car and drove it about three miles again
Right after the successful trip, I tried to restart the car, but it would not start at all.
The roads were still wet from rain that afternoon, temperature about 78 F.
When the key was in the ingition, a buzzing sound came from under the hood.
In the active starting key position, there was another louder buzz from under the hood.
It was difficult to locate this one. Took a 3 minute video of the experience.Two days later in the afternoon, the process repeated with the same results.
This time, we disconnected the battery for about ten minutes first.
I drove the car about three miles around the neighborhood, and parked it at home.
I noticed this time, that the idle was low.
would not restart. The temperature was 80 F and rising.After another 30 minutes, the engine would restart, and the idle remained low.
The engine even stopped and needed a re-start. Surprisingly, the restart worked.The only other problem I have had with the car is sluggish acceleration, and a reluctance
to upshift to a higher gear in cold weather until it warms up.What do you think is the problem?What or who should I go to next?Approximately how much should the repair cost? My location is in Dayton, Ohio.
