My car is very difficult to start when the temp is below 55 degrees.

  1. If the engine runs fine after it has started and warmed up, the most likely reason would be worn spark plugs. Replace the spark plugs with OEM spark plugs. They are cheap enough and should be done anyway if its been a while.

    If the engine still runs rough or the check engine light is on, it will require pulling the engine trouble codes first.

    – No Start Diagnostics
    – Toyota OBD Trouble Codes

    Toyota Camry and Cressida have two separate diagnostic connectors and two separate diagnostic modes which both provide access to the trouble codes. See accessing Trouble Codes for more information.

    Preparatory Conditions

    Battery voltage 11 Volt minimum
    Closed throttle position (CTP) switch full closed
    Transmission in neutral position
    All auxiliary equipment, including air conditioning, switched OFF
    Engine at normal operating temperature

    Accessing Trouble Codes

    Self-Diagnosis – Normal Mode Switch ignition ON. Do NOT start engine.
    Check MIL illuminates
    Switch ignition OFF
    Cressida – jump DLC terminals TE1 and E1 with a short lead 1 or 2
    Camry – jump DLC terminals TE1 and E1 with a short lead 1 or 3
    Count MIL flashes and compare with trouble code table below

    First flashes of .5 second duration indicate ‘tens’, after a 1.5 second pause, next flashes of .5 second duration indicate ‘units’
    A 2.5 second pause occurs between codes
    After a 4.5 second pause, trouble codes will be repeated
    Switch ignition OFF
    Remove jump lead
    Toyota OBD I E1 conector

    Self-Diagnosis – Test Mode Carry out preparatory conditions

    Jump DLC terminals TE2 and E1 with a short lead 1

    Switch ignition ON. Do NOT start engine

    Check MIL is flashing to confirm test mode is operating

    NOTE: Test mode will not be activated if the DLC terminals are connected after the ignition switch is turned ON.

    Start the engine
    Drive vehicle over 10 mph to simulate possible fault conditions
    Stop vehicle
    Jump DLC terminals TE1 and E1 with a short lead 1
    Count MIL flashes and compare with trouble code table below
    Switch ignition OFF
