Hi hope I can Help
Did you're check engine light come on?
If the check engine light did not come on and the engine was running fine and just quit like you turned the key off, I would check my timing belt.
If the timing belt breaks it will sean as you turned the key off and the cars computer would not set a code.
If you had a problem with the EGR MAP or MAF you would have tripped a code on the computer.
Check the timing belt.
Hope this helps
please leave feed back

An engine that has fuel and spark, no serious vacuum leaks and cranks normally should start. The problem may be that your engine has lost compression in 1 or more cylinders. Since you have an overhead cam engine with a rubber timing belt, a broken timing belt would be the most likely cause especially if the engine has a lot of miles on it. Most OEMs recommend replacing the OHC timing belt every 60,000 miles for preventative maintenance, but many belts are never changed. Eventually they break, and when they do the engine stops running, in addition to any damage such as bent valves and valvetrain components & sometimes cracked pistons.

Overhead cams can also bind and break if the head warps due to severe overheating, or the cam bearings are starved for lubrication. A cam seizure may occur during a subzero cold start if the oil in the crankcase is too thick and is slow to reach the cam. High rpm cam failure can occur if the oil level is low or the oil is long overdue for a change. This problem can be diagnosed by doing a compression check or removing the valve cover and watching for valve movement when the engine is cranked.

A blown head gasket may prevent an engine from starting if the engine is a four cylinder with two dead cylinders. But most six or eight cylinder engines will sputter to life and run roughly even with a blown gasket. The gasket can, however, allow coolant to leak into the cylinder and hydrolock the engine.

Since your Toyota Camry was made with a 4-cylinder model, and a 6-cylinder model, if you have verified you get fuel and spark, do a compression check and you should have a good idea what the problem is.
