Having problems with your Cars & Trucks ?

My 97 toyota camry cranks but doesn't start.

\015 Well a bad crank position sensor cause low compression? How could I check if there enough gas pressure?\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 17-06-2019

Answers :

No,,,you probably have a slipped or broken timing belt, or worse a bad head gasket
Fuel pressure...you check with a fuel pressure gauge hooked to the schrader valve on the fuel rail
If you have low compression you have only a few things that cause that. 1. you have a blown head gasket. 2. you have a cracked head. 3. your piston rings are shot. With a no start condition I can almost garuntee you have either number 1. or 2. If you wanna check the crank sensor, have someone spin the motor while you pull off a spark plug boot. If you hear/see it firing then the crank sensor is good. Crank sensors either work or they dont. If the crank sensor is bad, you will lose fuel and fire.
