Engine Performance problem
1990 Toyota Camry 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 232500 miles
Was traveling about 45 mph, up a 20 % grade and engine died and only sputterd briefly after waiting for the engine to cool down and on a level terrain re-start.
Towed back home and engine restarted and ran smoothly for few minutes until I shut down.
12 hrs latertried to restart- engine would turn over but no signs of combustion.
Background Info: @ 230,000 engine frequently stalled at intersections and electronically contolled overdrive was sporadic - replaced IAC, cleaned EGR, replaced TPS w/multimeter and replaced a speed control sensor on the tranny.
Finally in April 09 the car has performed like it was brand new!
Now in June it died driving up this hill.
Thoughts - fuel system or electrical?
