Having problems with your 1995 Toyota Camry ?

95 Camry Dies While Driving

\015 I was driving down the highway at about 55mph and my car started lurching. My RPM gauge was staying steady but the car was kicking pretty badly... I turned on a side road and hit the gas and it wouldn't go above 20mph. Then It just died. I still had lights, the radio and ac were still on, and when I tried to restart it it cranked and tried to turn over but wouldn't start. The lights didn't dim when I tried to start it either, so i'm guessing its not a battery or alternator problem? I have over a quarter tank of gas and no known problems with the car... and It has been running fine up until tonight. It's been raining a lot today, and I did drive through a decent sized puddle about 15 minutes before the car died.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 22-01-2018

It's gotta be the distributor. They are a common fault for that model and I actually have the same model as you. They are very sensitive to water as well. Easy part to replace if you are a do it yourself kind of person. If the distributor goes bad, you can crank it all day long and it wont spark.
You say your rpm gauge was steady the whole time? That sounds like something else but i'll stick with my original guess. Throw a used one in it from a wrecking yard if you like. Make sure to keep the adjuster bolts in the same place as your current position as that is your timing.
Distributor is located on the right side on the top of the engine and have the wires for the spark plugs going into it. you will need a 10mm socket to remove the 2 bolts holding it in. Its easier to do if you disconnect the air intake as well by simply using a screw driver. Any more questions, I'd be happy to answer. All the best

Please help. I have a 96 toyota camry le that keeps dying on me. At first the battery light came on and then shortly after the car died. We had the alternator tested and it was bad so we put a new one in. So now the battery light still comes on. It will come on for a few minutes while I?m driving then switch off, then on, then off, then on. When the battery light stays on for an extended period of time, the car eventually dies on me while I?m driving it. We took the new alternator out and had it

Running Problems I have an 87 camry with the 2.0L auto with ECT. The problem is: I start my car in the morning and drive maybe 5 mins to wherever then on the way home it coughs about 2 times then shuts off/dies. I try starting it and it turns over. I then let it sit for a few mins. then it starts and then I drive it home. I have replaced the fuel pump, strainer, and fuel filter, cleaned the MAP and MAF sensors, checked the fuses all seem good. Also when it dies it sometimes acts like the starter


I had this problem for years when my 87 was only a few years old. Even though it was tested over and over, the distributor ended up being the problem. I got lucky when a friend saw it posted in a tom and ray column in their local newspaper. It was fo ... 1987 Toyota Camry

Is the fuel pump in the tank for a 4 cyl 1995 camry as well. I think mine just went out. Car warmed up for 15 min this morning, 13 min drive to work, while waiting in line at fast food rest. it began to sputter and then died. Later I had a friend spray ether in it and it started up and if he continued to spray it would stay running. I think the last time my fuel filter was changed was 1-2 years ago. Thanks, for your help
