I have traced power to the fuel pump, but it's only there in the start position. Should there be power at the pump in the on position before you start it? My 2017 Camry only has power after it starts.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hi,

It gets power when cranking. When the key returns to start the run position, it should continue to run but only if there is ignition (running).

Do me a favor. See if it starts for a couple of seconds if you use starting fluid. If it does, then we can confirm it is a fuel-related issue. Also, here is a link you may find helpful. It reviews the most common causes of a crank no start condition.

Let me know what you find or if you have other questions.

Take care,
Joe

The car does run with starting fluid. It tries to start on its own fuel after it sits for a few hours but only stumbles for a couple of seconds and shuts off. Like maybe it's a pressure problem. I just got a fuel injection pressure tester today so I'll check that this weekend.

Hi,

If it starts with starting fluid, I believe you are on the right track. Here is a link that shows in general how it's done:

https://www.2carpros.com/articles/how-to-check-fuel-system-pressure-and-regulator

Your vehicle won't have a port to connect to, so you will need to add a T where the fuel line. if you look below, the pics contain the directions and pics related to connecting the T. The last pic shows the manufacturer's specifications for pressure and possible problems you may encounter.

Let me know if this helps or if you have other questions.

Take care,
Joe
