I have a 1986 Toyota Camary that will start one day and not the next. After running for a period of time it will not start up untill the next day. It will crank but not turn over enough to start. The following parts have been replaced-starter-spark plug and wires-distributor- fuel pump- fuel filter. On one occasion I went over a set of railroad tracks and it died but started back up. On another day I intentionally slammed on the brakes, tuned the car off and it would not start. When it runs, it runs like a champ. No hesitation, high idle or surging. I have also ran a 3-part entire fuel systems cleaning. This involved cleaning the throttle body and cleaner through the brake booster. What do I do next?

Try to duplicate the problem-when it dies immediately check for spark-no spark and can start later on check the Ignitor-

Also check the fuel pump relay

Final could be bad gas.

HTH Good Luck!

Thanks for the reply.
I do have a couple questions:
What do I do if there is no spark or is spark?
I keep hearing that the coolant temperature sensor might be the problem/solution. Why would this effect anything? Thanks

The coolant temperature sensor its like the old carb's choke, demands fuel from the computer for initial start up. Also check the cold start injector whether its working to include its time switch.
