Engine not starting after replacing distributor.

Hi guys.

My 1993 Toyota Camry 2.2L LE has been having a hard time turning over. I recently put a brand new starter in it. Even after that, I would have to attempt to crank it 4 or 5 times on occasion before it would turn over.

Yesterday, I replaced the whole distributor, plugs, and wires. I properly timed it with a timing light and the car seemed to be doing much better, as I drove it home with no problem and much better/easier acceleration.

The distributor I pulled out of it seemed to have oil leaking into it pretty badly. As far as I could tell it was shot.

After sitting overnight the starter is just turning continuously, and the engine will not crank. It seems like it starts to turn over for a second but won't turn over all the way, and then the starter just keeps turning.

ANY help/suggestion is greatly appreciated, thanks.

EDIT: I tried pulling a code from the obd1 and I believe I'm getting code 22, which reads as: 22 Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor signal. Could this cause the engine not to turn over?

Try disconnecting the ECT. I doubt that's the problem, but it won't hurt to try it.

DIY: ECT Sensor diag. (Without tools)
