For some reason this hard start problem only appears when the car has been sitting for several hours.
Took it to the dealership (twice) - nothing came up on the diagnostic, problem didn't occur for them. They replaced my battery and battery cables. Then took it to a mechanic - no error codes appeared for him. He cleaned the injectors just in case. Problem still there.
On my own I: (a) cleaned the throttle plate; and (b) replaced the spark plugs. Worked fine for three days after spark plugs replaced then problem returned.
Not sure what to do at this point. Purchased car brand new w/ 3 miles back in 2004 specifically because I believed that Camrys were reliable.
At this point, I am thinking about replacing the ECT sensor.
Any insight would be GREATLY appreciated.
have the same problem?
