Please Help, My Camry Has Refused To Start. by vowsng(m): 5:30pm On Dec 20, 2019
Please dear nairalanders, the only thing I have, my 2003 Toyota Camry that I'm using for Uber has refused to start, the "hard starting" started gradually and now it doesn't start at all.

Took it to the mechanic, he checked coils for current, said there is current, checked fuel pump, checked timing, checked nozzles et Al.

Mechanic now said it's no longer mechanical fault that's it's electrical fault, didn't mention he also checked cranshaft sensor, cold start switch/ temperature guage, I bought new set of plugs, and the car has refused to start.

Earlier today, I called an electrician, as the mechanic said the current coming to the nozzles is not enough, electrician came and said it's enough and they were just debating on it.

Did I mention the injector was cleaned too with injector cleaner? And the mechanic finally poured some fuel into the injector and the car started but was jerking seriously and went off too, please you all should help me, I'm tired, have not worked since Monday, from buy this to buy that have spent like 50k on it and no positive response.


Please, I need help, I'm depressed, the last hope is about to collapse. My village people want to laugh at me, please.

Change the kickstarter

The vehicle turns, like the normal sound when it's about to start, like cranks, but doesn't start.

Change all coils...or swap them.

By the way, what does your OBDII scan result say?

Scan, post codes.
Vehicle needs air, fuel and power at the right time to start... One is missing, a scan should help figure out which it is

Hello young man, this has happened to me. My fuel filter attached to my fuel pump in the tank was covered with thick dirt and the car refused to start.

Immediately, the pump filter was cleaned up. The car cranked and engine came back to life. I am not saying this is exactly your case but this has happened to me.

Thank God your car is working now. Please do not ignore this next thing. Your fuel tank is dirty. Create time to go to mechanic, drop your fuel tank, wash it thoroughly with a good detergent like Klin. Then rinse with water. Allow your tank to dry PROPERLY before fixing it back. Please ensure you stay and supervise your mechanics.

If you don't do this, that situation will happen again in about 6 - 8 weeks. Slight hard starting, then it gets severe gradually.
