Default toyota start up problems stalling

I have a problems starting my 1990 camry. If i leave the car off for 24
hours it has problems staring up it will stall for the first 20 minutes
driving but after that the car is fine. i replaced the cap, wires, and
rotor problem is not as bad but still persists. I have read on a few
discussion boards that it might be the Coil, basicaly they said it
hased to be cleaned? however i do not know what this means is it easy
to do and what do i clean it with and most importantly ware is it on
the car. any help would be greatly appreciated

Its most likely the coil is oiled up and shorting as the water turns to
vapor. Try tightening your Cap first, Is there a gasket there sealing
the cap to distributor, there must be one in place.

The coil is under the cap on the distributor, use alcohol on a white
rag and spray electronics cleaner. If the rag is oily black oil is
leaking past the O ring, a common issue. If cleaning and tightening the
cap won`t help you need to remove the distributor to replace the coil
and O ring. I solved my 91s same issue with a good cleaning and tight
cap, after no mechanic could figure it out for years and years

Please forward all information you get about this because I'm getting the
same problem (with a 1990 LE 4cyl)... usually when it's humid outside. I
had the same problem with the 89 LS 4cyl I had before... It's really
annoying. I also replaced the cap and wires and I checked the coil... It
was spotless! I've been spraying WD40 on the wires and cap to help dry
everything but I don't think it's working... There has been a few posts in
this newsgroup about this problem but nothing seems to work. Thanks

That's good info Mark. Any gunk which provides a spark-track to ground
around the coil, which is not protected by gunk proof silicone insulating
gloves, like conventional (read dated) coils, is often a problem.

Your problem sounds like the engine temperature sensor. It may or may not
trip the check engine light. When mine went, it did not trip the check
engine light, but there was a stored code that pointed to the sensor. The
computer thought the engine was warm, so the fuel mixture was wrong for a
cold engine and you would have to keep you foot on the gas, or the engine
would stall until it warmed up a little.

Ok cool that does not seem to hard. so basicly i unscrew the screws and
take the cap off and the pull the rotor off. Now once you pull it off i
just give it an alchole rub all around the area where i took everything
off. i am sorry im not great with cars i can change oil change cap
rotors, fuses, and things like that but im not very mechanicaly
inclined. So basialy what im asking is the coil write whare the roter
and cap is and what does it look like.

2 sides of the coil you cant clean. Coils go bad and the gasket on the
distributor-cap Toy says Replace dont re use, I still say its
distributor-coil related, to moisture
