Engine Mechanical problem
1995 Toyota Camry 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic
I have a 1995 toyota camry car and I cannot get it to start. The car use to run until a radiator hose sprung a leak and car started smoking so I park it and had it took to a mechanic and diagnose that a radiator hose leaked all the water out of it and he replaced the hose and the car started right up. When I went to pick up car I started the car it started up also. But when I turned car off and then tried to star it again it would not start. It acted like it wanted to star but would not fire. I took car home and I done some test on it like testing all the fuses, and I tested the fuel pump by turning key switch on and listning through the gas filler hole to see if I could hear the pump engaging. I did not hear pump so I took the back seat out to access the pump and I hooked a battery directly up to the pump and it worked. The n I put the connector back on the pump and I turned the key to see if the pump worked but do not think I heard the pump engage I thought I heard a sound but it did not sound like the one when I hooked the battery directly up to it.
also I wanted to see if the car was firing but I could not find the spark plugs on this 6 cylinder engine, but think the car is firing because it acts like it wants to start but will not fire up and keep running.
can you give me any suggestion on what is wrong with car especially when it ran so perfectly before the radiator hose leak.
have the same problem?
