ok
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I am pretty good a mechanical work. I just don't know if I should also replace the Cam Sensor. As it is fairly expensive, I have spark and you can smell fuel
Toyota Mechanic: Peter Bagley, Auto Service Technician replied 4 months ago

Have you determined if it is a fuel or spark issue? Try spraying some quick start ito the intake and see if it tries to start. Let me know what happens.

Toyota Mechanic: Peter Bagley, Auto Service Technician replied 4 months ago

I have to ask these questions as I do not know your skill level. Does it crank over normally or faster then normal?

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
normal crank it trys to start but won't grab. My skill level is above average. As I said I have changed the ignitor, and the Coil pak ( 3 ) wires and plugs. Only thing left is the Cam Position sensor.Although I have checked fuel pressure it think its ok as you can smell fuel in the engine bay
Customer reply replied 4 months ago

Customer reply replied 4 months ago

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Toyota Mechanic: Peter Bagley, Auto Service Technician replied 4 months ago

have you checked the timing?

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Spark is blue....can't check timing without engine running. When it runs it is very smooth maybe slightly rich
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Pretty hard to check the timing if the engine won't run.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
You haven't answered my question. Could it be the Cam Position Sensor????
