When an engine turns over but won't start always check the basic 3 to start troubleshooting: Fuel, Ignition and Compression. Make certain that you have fuel to the injectors or carb. (I think a 92 Camry is injected) You can verify that fuel is present at the injectors by checking the pressure at the fuel pressure test port. Next, check the spark. Pull a spark plug wire and see if your car is making a spark when you crank it. Last, Check the compression. Mark all spark plug wires by cylinder number, pull all spark plugs and use the compression gague to test the pressure.

depending on how 'bad' it is, it would cause your car not to start.... otherwise you would have an intermettinet miss and wouldn't always be the same cylinder. with a multimeter you can check the condition of the distributor.... If it is an intermittent no start condition.... I would look at the fuel pressure and the injector.
