Default Dead 93 Camry 2.2

Hi all,
The wife was tooling around the other day and with no warning our Camry
quit, we had it towed home, and I suspected the timing belt had quit....it
should have, at 130,000 miles....but that was not the case, belt was intact
and engine was in time. I swapped out the belt, since I had it open to look
anyway, but it still will not fire, even with a little blast of ether shot
right down the intact, which leads me to belive I have some electrical
problem. I will probably have a local garage take over from here, but I'm
wondering what electrical components are likely to fail all at once,
coil,sensors, what? And, is there a way to check fault codes using the
diagnostic connector, if you don't have a scanner? And, if there is, is
there a website somewhere that tells what code number relates to what
failure?
I realize I'm asking a lot, and I'll probably have someone else repair this
thing for me, because I'm out of time, but there's always next time.....
Thanks,
Ed

Probably most common is the coil under the distributor cap, unless
you've got the California model with an extermal coil - seem less
likely to fail.
Next most common might be the igniter.
Haynes has the resistance values to check the coil.
Factory service manual has the flow chart to trouble shoot the igniter.
Obviously these are guesses, could be something else.
1993 had OBD-1, no code reader required. Jump the pins at the
diagnostic connecter, and count the number of times the dash light
flashes. (repair manuals have instructions and chart of fault codes)

Launch your internet explorer and pull-up Google search engine. Click on
'Groups'... click on advanced... type this NGs name in the NG field then put
the words ignition coil (and) igniter, in the 'words' field. Once yopu have
done that you will have many previous posts about how to diagnose the
ignition. Then using a fresh field, do a search on 'OBD' (On Board
Diagnostics),..the same thing will happen,..lots of posts from the Google
archives for this NG on that subject.

Thanks guys, good info to know, as it turns out the wrecker driver could not
get here today so I may get another chance at this thing.
Thanks again,
Ed
