Having problems with your Toyota Camry ?

I have a 1986 Toyota Camry LE L4 2.0 Liter FI. When starting it has a real difficult time starting and when accelerating it hesitates. This gets better as the car warms up. The problem keeps getting worse each day. If I rev the engine for a minute or so the problem goes away. This too is taking longer and longer however. This morning the car eventually started, but while revving the motor it died and now won't restart. Any ideas? Fuel filter, EGR or something else? Thanks for your time.

Hello! A device called the Mass Air Flow sensor (MAF)is the #1 culprit...#2 is a stuck throttle body flapper valve...

The MAF is bolted to the air filter housing outlet, it has a connector plugged into it, and a hose which goes to the throttle body intake...

Remove the sensor...set to one side...Inspect throttle body intake for carbon build-up...The air flapper must swing freely...If necessary, clean using throttle body spray cleaner...Lubricate linkage with WD40...

The MAF sensor cost around $200; However it can be cleaned...
Go to Radio Shack and buy a product called DOXIT; $14.99.
It is used to clean electronic parts an leaves no residue...

Follow directions and clean the inside of the MAF plus male/female pins on the connector...

Reassemble and test the vehicle...If the problem is solved; Great...If not I'll take it from there...

Replacement parts for your Camry are outrageously expensive; I will try and solve the problem with the least amount of money spent...

Well first thing u need to do is check for fuel pressure there should be a fuel test port on the fuel rail if not just take some gas and put it in a spray bottle and spray some gas in the intake manifold while some one is cranking the engine over if it tries to fire then replace the fuel pump. if that doesnt work than ive got a few more tricks to try. ill be around for further questions. thank u
