If you have the 4-cylinder engine, you will find that the coil is
inside the distributor.

Under the distributor. Yes the coils go bad, but are you sure it is
electrical and not fuel related. And have you changed and checked
everything else. Is your distributor cap tight, If the coil is bad it
usualy doesnt short till car gets fully warm then it takes 15-45 min to
dry out. Coils on 90 go bad often, mine is bad to.

Default Re: Distributer cap

I got my answer where the coil goes on the 90 Toyota Camary.Thanks.Now I
want to know if I need to unravel the ditributer cap and would that unset
the timming or undo any settings under the cap?In other words,do I just
remove the cap and screw on the ignition coil? Is it simple? Please
someone help me.The car just had a tuneup and also the mechanic claims he
changed the gas filter.I figure the coil is probably the problem why the
car takes long in getting the full power to start.and the stalling and
puttering it does.

A friend tried to replace the coil on my 90 4 cil yesterday, he gave up
because the screws are on the bottom. The manual says remove
distributor, mine had oil leaking in, the O ring is bad it is a common
problem. Get a manual and an O ring gasket before you pull it. Also I
woyuld not realy trust aftermarket coils

Simply removing the distributor cap and the dust-cover under it will not
upset anything. If you are hesitant to do this job, get hold of a repair or
workshop manual and follow the instructions and diagrams.There are
electrical tests conducted with an ohm meter which suss out coil,...though
these tests dont pick-up spark leakage to ground problems.

In other words,do I just

Unfortunately, intermittant problems can sometimes cause unnecessary expense
if the symptoms are either assessed incorrectly or are indicative of a
number of possible faults.

I am suspicious of mechanics who charge prices like that and still haven't
fixed the car. It's an honour thing. If the car is still faulty, he should
have another look with reduced costs,...

Poor starting and stalling can be caused by a lot of things and needs to be
diagnosed properly Lillie. A blocked fuel filter or failing fuel-pump (you
would think) would cause fuel starvation when the engine calls for large
amounts of fuel (accelarating) rather than at start or idle.

Some possible causes for poor starting and stalling in no particular order:

- intermittant ignition: coil breaking down, spark-plug leads gone high
resistance, cracked or tracked dissy cap

- loose or intermittant electrical connections associated with the computer
or its peripherals including sensors and distributor wiring

- an airleak around the intake: anywhere from the air filter (where the air
mass and air temperature sensor is) to the inlet to head, gasket.

- a stuck or dirty idle-speed-control valve (located inside the
throttle-body)

-ignition timing incorrect

-intermittant or failed MAP sensor, throttle position sensor, coolant temp
sensor

- worn injectors

I would be going back to the mechanic to complain about the car's continued
problems. You pay good money for a competant analysis and fix,..not a hit or
miss job.

If you still need help.....

I don't know about the '90 Camry, but in the late 80's, the coil was a
pretty simple swap.

Take off the dist. cap and the coil is right in front of you. The only
problem might be is that the screws are smallish and they may be hard
to break loose. I cursed quite a bit to get them to break loose without
stripping out the head.

So, all you do is disconnect the wire, disconnect the screws holding
the coil in place and put in the new coil the same way.

I might suggest replacing at the very least the distributor rotor at
the same time...and if it were me I'd get a new distributor cap and
ignition wires at the same time.
