Default Thanks for this service - 1994 camry 5sfe engine problem

Thank you, whoever it is that provides this opportunity for everyone to get together to solve problems........... great service.

My mechanic has replaced my 5sfe 1994 camry engine and now can't get it to start. Any suggestions as to what suggestions I could give him? He's tried all the obvious, spark, fuel & air, distributor & he thinks that he just forgot to hook something up....... thanks, dan

(I posted this same comment in the engine forum section too)

Was this a direct fit engine. Toyota modified the ign and fuel system on later engines.

Does the ign have spark at the spark plugs?

Fuel pump running when the engine is cranking over (it doesn't run with just the ign key on).

Make sure the cam/crank timing is OK, this is set when the timing belt is installed.

I told him of your suggestions, it is direct fit, it does have spark, & is getting fuel. Now he says he's not getting compression, 25psi in #1 & says maybe the rings haven't been seated yet (he's going to try and put oil in the top of the cylinders to see if that helps). I ask if the timing belt was set properly & he says he thinks so, that he put it on before setting the engine in the car................ could the timing belt be far enough off to cause little compression and therefore no start...........? Thanks so much for your help, toyomoho
