For a car to run, you need three things at the right times. Gas, air, and spark. If the electrical system is good, then you're down to gas and air. It could be your fuel pump, injectors, fuel filter, fuel lines, etc. You should also check your intake system. You could have a badly clogged air filter, any number of sensors could be dirty,bad or unplugged, including MAP (Manifold Absolute Pressure), MAF (Mass Air Flow), IAC (Idle Air Control), TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) or possibly even and Oxygen sensor. There are more, but these come to mind first. Your timing could also be off, but it's controlled electronically, and isn't adjustable, so I doubt this is it. Perhaps check your timing belt to make sure it isn't damaged, because if it's split, then your valves aren't even opening and closing. Hope this helps.

Where is the starter located on a 1995 Toyota Avalon?

1995 Avalon Starter clicking noiseNext to the battery diagonal to the left (towards the passengers side) , if its not working (making contact) you will hear a click come from it every once in a while. This will not get better, consider it a warning that it needs to be replaced asap. There are a couple ways to go about it. (1.) Let a mechanic fix it it will cost about $300 from a dealer ship maybe a little cheaper from another mechanic. (2.) Fix it yourself get a starter contact kit from a dealership or from eBay and follow directions from online or from the eBay seller this should cost around $55 for the contacts and the plunger and should take 2-3 hrs for a first timer maybe one hour for a mechanic. hope this helps i found good info at
