Default HELP 1990 TOYOTA CAMRY

I have a 1990 Camry 4cylinder, DX model, auto tranny.
3 days ago, I jumped started my room mates car. She hooked it up, but went
direct to battery on both cars. Before I could start my camry, she had
already started hers (battery not that dead). I disconnected and put away
the cables. Dropped the hood. Started the car and moved it back to is
parking spot.
Well, went to start it this morning, SOUNDS HORRIBLE. Sounds like a horse
whinnying and WILL NOT START. I have pulled the starter cause it seemed to
turn slowly, had it checked, Works good. I checked all the fuses under hood
and in car (did not check all the relays) and all are good. I did see spark
off of the plugs (farthest one away from battery), did see some. FUEL
Problem?? Could the jump start have fried something that took a second or
too to break?? Car was only driven 5 feet back to its parking stall then
turned off again. please if you have suggestions EMAIL ME
kmcarey2@comcast.net

Thanks for your time

Kevin

I got it going. The coil inside distributor is a little weak. After removal
clean and reinstall works..

That scares me. I bet the jump start weakened the coil. I will not jump
anything off my Camry.

Actually. the day before the "jump start" i had the distributor removed to
replaced its seal to correct an oil leak. that is what messed it up.
