FUEL

1996 Toyota Rav4

Engine Mechanical problem
1996 Toyota Rav4 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 110000 miles

On my way to work, the vehicle made this strange noise like lawnmower out of gas and static on a telephone. It just killed and would not start BUT does turn over. Feels/sounds like it's not getting any gas. Is there a fuel reset button? Or what is the problem?

There's no fuel reset button

Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine -have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, coil's resistances, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it
