What is the procedure for cleaning the COIL with alcohol?

Clean with a rag and alcohol, a spray electronics cleaner to get behind
the coil is about all you can do. This is just what I tried out that
helped. mechanics or a Toy dealer of course will say you need to replace
it for 150$, why should they offer 5$ fix when they can get 100+

Which spray electronics cleaner did you use? (Brand, where you got it
from...?)

I don't remember ever seeing a spray alcohol bottle...

Autozone has a free online manual for that year. There are two types of
coils, one internal, located under the distributor cap. The other is
external. See the pictures on:

I would not buy a coil from anyplace but toyota. I bought and returned
one at Autozone when the sales guy said they have a 2-3% failure rate.
Just use rubbing or denatured alcohol to clean it, in spray I just meant
spray electronics cleaner.

AutoZone prices tend to be lower than other chains. But you're right,
some of the stuff they carry are just what you pay for. But they've
gotten better now.

As far as some of the name brand stuff, like Bilstein, Permatex,
FelPro, Denso, AutoZone offers a good deal. The Bilstein you get there
is just as good as the one from the factory ;)

Possible faulty Ignition Coil ??

Hey Guys.

I seem to have a similar issue with my 93 Camry (4 Cyl, 2.2, Auto Tranny).
The engine seems to sputter while driving, but this only happens when the engine has warmed up to normal operating temperature.

The car has been through a lot (the previous owner being a complete ass). General/Major servicing does not seem to fix this issue. Although using 98-Octane fuel helps a bit. It still sputters mind you, but not that often.

The few things that i can think of, after reading multiple forums, are:
- Ignition Coil needs replacement.
- Throttle body needs to be cleaned,
- Fuel Filter needs to replaced.

The thing is, i had already spent a lot of cash on this car, dont want to go spending more cash on something that wont fix the issue. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
