Re: RANDOM no spark / start 1993 Toyota Camry 2.2
Well the problem is still there and I could use any help that the group
It seems now that the fuel tank thing was a red herring and had nothing to
do with the actual problem. The canister, purge, lines etc. have all been
checked and they're working fine. To be safe, I put on a new Toyota gas cap
I've tried the "wiggle test" on the wires and harnesses when it wouldn't /
would start and that seems to have no affect.
The spark / no spark will be at random and affects all cylinders. There
seems to be no pattern in the condition so I'm definitely guessing here.
Any new ideas out there?
