20 Most Recent 1998 Toyota Camry Questions & Answers

If your losing compression then I suggest doing a compression test and then following it up with a wet compression test to determine whether the problem is in the valves or pistons.
Wow one tune up in 122k miles jerking not really an ignition thing more like a fuel thing. If Compression test results are good then do a full tune up even replace coil packs or distributor ( which ever is applicable) and replace fuel filter.
These vehicles are not known for major engine problems (blown engines bad valves etc).
Big with transmission problems if its a 6 cylinder not the 4 cylinders.

Great news, your 1998 Toyota Camry Key Fob is self programmable. Below are the programming instructions. Be patient, it might take you a few times to get this right. It is all about timing.

Most remotes can be self-programmed. If this procedure does not work, you must have your remote programmed by a professional automotive locksmith or dealership.

Obtain all remote transmitters for this vehicle.
1. Insert key into ignition and turn ignition switch to ON position.

2. Locate the ECU (Engine Control Unit) and press and hold the ECU PROGRAMMING button for 3 seconds. The ECU will be located under one of the front two seats, the trunk, or under the dashboard on the drivers side. You will need a small pointy object like a pen to depress the ECU button. After pressing the ECU button for three seconds, you will see the STATUS MONITOR LED turn on for 5 seconds. Vehicle is now in programming mode.

3. Press and release the top button on the remote. The STATUS MONITOR LED will turn off. A chirp will be heard as well as one flash of the exterior lights.

4. Turn off the ignition. Programming is now complete, test remotes for proper programming.

It's quite possible that as you basically ran out of fuel some dirt may have passed through from the fuel tank into the fuel line and into the filter. There is alway dirt/debris in the tank. You may need to clean out the fuel pipes and replace the fuel filter. If you don't have a filter, the dirt may have blocked on of the carburettor jets, that will need to be stripped down, cleaned and replaced.

try this
Open hood ensure new battery is disconnected.
Open main fuse panel cover under hood and remove horn relay (so you don't have to listen to the horn).
Use the key to lock the drivers door.
Connect the positive battery terminal.
Connect the negative battery terminal (security system will now activate, hazards lights will flash and horn would be going off if the relay was not removed).
Use the key to unlock the drivers door.
Get in, close drivers door.
Use the key to start the engine.
Security system will deactivate.
Get out of vehicle, reinstall horn relay, replace fuse panel cover, close hood.

I am not sure if these facia units are interchangeable or not but i can assure you that the electronic mileage is unique to every unit and will have to be changed by using specialust diagnostic equipment.

Possible noise may be a low coolant level and what you are hearing is bubbling as it enters or exits the heater core. The coolant valve, if equipped, may be partially open allowing a noisy flow of coolant. Check the coolant level at the radiator when the car is cooled off. A bad radiator cap may allow fluid out but not back in so you may see a full overflow reservoir. Good luck.
