Default "89" camry bucks and stalls ?

Hi,
I have an 89 camry always ran great, but the other night i lost
acceleration when i got home the next time i started it , it reverses well
and holds idle in neutral, but when i shift to drive, its bucks and stalls
out everytime , after rough shaky idle for a second, i checked the fuel
system fuses and all are ok , does anyone know what this might be
....Thanks,
Richie

Check for moisture in the distributer cap, three screws......while you
have the snorkel removed (its easier to get at the cap)check throttle
body for black residue.Also check carefully the bellows area on the
snorkel for cracks.

A classic sign of wet coil under the cap caused by a leaking O ring,
clean the coil with alcohol and spray electronics cleaner, Also bad plug
wires can do that.

Default "89" camry bucks and stalls...... still

HI,

dry out distributor. still bucks and dies out in drive but idles in
neutral and goes well in reverse ... could it be a sensor ? i appreciate
any ideas on what it might be.

wd 40 in a distributor, will make matters worse, its a lubricant which
leaves a film not like alcohol or electronics cleaner.

If you had removed the distridutor cap after a few minutes running, out
would have poured smoke from wd burning as the rotor arched to the cap,
the oil and smoke residue attract moisture which till didtributor is
fully heated will arch and short. Just as a dirty , wet car battery
discharges itself by case contamination so is your distributor shorting,
but now you are moving 30000v inside on a semi conductive film making
hell inside, and missfiring your car.

Did you know WD 40 is Not a lubricant and will displace oil and ruin
electric motors in a few weeks, forget what the can says, wd is best for
loosening rusted bolts and thats about it. Its a solvent with rapidly
evaporating lubricating qualities, it even displaces oil.

You need a cleaner that leaves no residue , a big can of spray brake
cleaner just Might do, a big can of spray electronics cleaner should as
long as it removes grease, be sure to clean behind the coil thats where
the leaking O ring is
