Question about 1996 Toyota Camry

ENGINE IS TURNING OVER AND THE ALTERNATOR CRANK IS TURNING BUT ITS NOT STARTING

Hi all, having dramas with my 96 Camry. When I start the ignition it sounds like its about to fire however it wont turn over. Initially thought it was a battery issue however the battery is now fully charged. I can see the belt is turning slowly on the alternator but it just wont kick over. Any suggestions?

There are only two possible causes
one is the no fuel and the other is no spark. If you can smell gasoline at the exhaust pipe then there is no spark. This could be from a lot of things. The usual suspect Go to Bing homepage

it sounds like either your having a short at the starter or the ignition switch is bad, I am leaning towards the issue being the starter, usually when the ignition switch is going bad there will be no click,

Check the fuel pressure. A slight dip in pressure will keep the engine from starting. When is the last time you did a tune up? Even if you are getting some spark you might not have enough. New plugs, wires, distr. cap could solve this problem. Or try a new fuel filter. When diagnosing a car problem always do simple cheap things first, as this usually ends up being the cause.

SOURCE: 95 toyota camry died and turns over but wont crank

same thing happened to my sons' Aries. we replaced timing belt and everything worked great> to confirm broken timing belt, remove valve cover >crank engine over and watch valve train, no movement= broken belt. you can check tech manual but as previously stated if this is not an interferance engine, cranking engine won't run a piston into an open valve. good luck.

Ignition switch won't enough to crank


your alternator or battery is probably bad. to test which one, while your engine is running (after being jumped if its not starting obviously), remove the positive cable from the battery. if the car dies, then you know its your alternator. it is common, although, for both of them to go out at the same time.

Toyota Camry 96. Won't start the engine turns over but doesn't start. The alternator and starter are working fine the coil sparks there are new spark plugs and the ignition module tested fine so I'm at a...


Ignition timing could be off, the plug wires and firing order may be scrambled, there could be a large air leak into the intake manifold, the EGR could be stuck open, the fuel pressure is too high and flooding the engine through the cold start injector, the MAP or MAF sensor is faulty, very dirty fuel injectors, idle air control valve defective, the engine coolant temp sensor is faulty (stuck at full hot).

Not enough information.Need to know if the engine CRANKS,or turns over,just won't start up and run,or if when you turn the ignition key,nothing happens at all.If the engine cranks and turns over,just won't run,you have to check for fuel supply and spark to the spark plugs.If nothing happens at all when turning the key,could be a bad starter,battery,alternator,PRNDL switch.
