Power window toyota camry
Fuse box is by drivers left knee. Above this are the flashers and about
3 inches above this is the circuit breaker for the windows and door
locks. breaker is silver, about 1/2 by 5/8 inch and in the center is
the button you need to push in to reset. I used an unbent paper clip to
press it. Make sure unit is not energized. May need to unplug breaker
first. Press in center button until it clicks.

1993 Camry v6 le overheating and fluid in
Hi Lil Cutey, The proof that you have a leakage is the fact that you need to add coolant every day. The leakage is somewhere else in the cooling system other than the radiator. Look at the places where the radiator pipes join to the engine to see if there are any signs of leakage. There will be a powdery deposit a similar color to the coolant. If you locate the leakage you may be able to get new hose clips and attend the problem. If the leakage is not evident from there, you will need to look more deeply. Inspect the front of the engine, where the serpentine belt is fitted and look for the same marks around the water pump. If its the water pump which is leaking it will mean fairly major work. If you want to tackle it let me know and we can go through it together. but it is not simple! Now we come to the worst part. If there are no signs of leakage from the water pump, start the engine and leave it idling until it gets to operating temperature and then let it continue until you can see which part of the engine where the steam is most dense. If its from the back of the engine (the part closest to the passenger compartment, then your car may have a major problem with that cylinder head. To work on that needs a certain expertise and special tools and equipment. The cylinder head will also need to be taken to a machining company for skimming. Let me know what you would like to do.Regards John

Oil pump leak toyota camry
You need to remove the front part of the oil pump and reseal it with an oil pump reseal kit from the parts store. Do yourself a favor and put in a new oil pump shaft seal as well. While you are at it change the front crank and the front cam seals, as they are all made from the same type of rubber.

This is mainly a matter of having the timing marks lined up along the timing belt at top dead center, and then checking that the spark advance is working OK . See here p30 and 44

NO COMPRESSION ON 2 CYLIER
Pour in a tablespoon or 2 of engine oil thru the plug hole. If the reading improves, the piston rings are broken.
If not, suspect a burned valve (but this is pretty uncommon in your engine) or a blown head gasket on that bank. Either way the head has to come off.
If you are going to do that yourself, post back as I have extensive info.

No fire to my plugs
It all sounds like you have a bad computor. If you are not getting fire from the coil. The source will lead you back to the brain source, (The Computor). Go to the local junk yard to get another one at half price.

Where do I find the timing marks on pulleys?
in the factory service manual FSM.
and read all the steps
3VZ-FE (and 2vz)
this is your engine. and has many stepskey is timing and proper belt tension and is free running engine.
Prior to timing belt removal, make sure all the match-marks
are there-2VZ-FE and 3VZ-FE engines
the crank mark is CR -line
the cam pulleys, 3v pulley to R-cam mark
and 3v pulley to L-cam mark. (photos are best).
If the timing belt is to be reused, draw a directional arrow on the timing belt in the direction of engine rotation (clockwise) and place matchmarks on the timing belt and crankshaft gear to match the drilled mark on the pulley.
- Remove the timing belt.
- With a 10mm hex wrench, remove the setbolt, plate washer and the No. 1 idler pulley.
- Remove the crankshaft timing pulley, if it can NOT be removed by hand, use two flat bladed tools. Position shop rags on the components to prevent damage.
If the old timing belt is being reinstalled, make sure the directional arrow is facing in the original direction and that the belt and crankshaft gear matchmarks are properly aligned.
- Turn the crankshaft until the key groove in the crankshaft timing pulley is facing upward. Slide the timing pulley on so that the flange side faces inward.
- Apply bolt adhesive to the first few threads of the No. 1 idler pulley setbolt, install the plate washer and pulley and then tighten the bolt to 25 ft. lbs. (34 Nm).
- Install the timing belt on the crankshaft timing, No. 1 idler and water pump pulleys.
- Install the lower (No. 1) timing cover and tighten the bolts.
- Align the crankshaft pulley set key with the key groove on the pulley and slide the pulley on. Tighten the bolt to 181 ft. lbs. (245 Nm).
- Install the No. 2 idler pulley and tighten the bolt to 29 ft. lbs. (39 Nm). Check that the pulley moves smoothly.
- Slide the left pulley, facing the flange side outward. Align the knock pin hole of the camshaft with the knock pin of the timing pulley, then install the knock pin. Tighten the left camshaft timing pulley bolt to 80 ft. lbs. (108 Nm).
- Set the No. 1 cylinder to TDC again. Turn the right camshaft until the knock pin hole is aligned with the timing mark on the No. 3 belt cover. Turn the left pulley until the marks on the pulley are aligned with the mark on the No. 3 timing cover.
- Check that the mark on the belt matches with the edge of the lower cover. If not, shift it on the crank pulley until it does. Turn the left pulley clockwise a bit and align the mark on the timing belt with the timing mark on the pulley. Slide the belt over the left pulley. Now move the pulley until the marks on it align with the one on the No. 3 cover. There should be tension on the belt between the crankshaft pulley and the left camshaft pulley.
- Align the installation mark on the timing belt with the mark on the right side camshaft pulley. Hang the belt over the pulley with the flange facing inward. Align the timing marks on the right pulley with the one on the No. 3 cover and slide the pulley onto the end of the camshaft. Move the pulley until the camshaft knock pin hole is aligned with the groove in the pulley and then install the knock pin. Tighten the bolt to 55 ft. lbs. (75 Nm).
- Position a plate washer between the timing belt tensioner and the a block and then press in the pushrod until the holes are aligned between it and the housing. Slide a 1.27mm (3VZ-FE 1.5mm) Allen wrench through the hole to keep the push rod set. Install the dust boot and then install the tensioner. Tighten the bolts to 20 ft. lbs. (26 Nm). Don\'t forget to pull out the Allen wrench!
- Turn the crankshaft clockwise two complete revolutions and check that all marks are still in alignment. If they aren\'t, remove the timing belt and start over again.
- Install the right engine mount bracket and tighten it to 30 ft. lbs. (39 Nm).
- Position a new gasket and then install the upper (No. 2) timing cover. refer to the illustration for bolt positioning.
- Install the spark plugs.
- On the 2VZ-FE, install the right engine mount insulator. Tighten the bolt to 47 ft. lbs. (64 Nm), the bracket nut to 38 ft. lbs. (52 Nm) and the body nut to 65 ft. lbs. (88 Nm). Install the No. 1 stay and tighten it to 38 ft. lbs. (52 Nm). Install the No. 2 stay and tighten the bolt to 48 ft. lbs. (66 Nm) and the nut to 38 ft. lbs. (52 Nm).
- On the 3VZ-FE, install the control rod and tighten the bolts to 47 ft. lbs. (64 Nm). Install the right stay and tighten it to 23 ft. lbs. (31 Nm).
- Install and adjust the drive belts.
- Install the fender apron seal and the wheel.
- On the 3VZ-FE, install the No. 2 stay and tighten the bolt to 55 ft. lbs. (75 Nm), the nut to 46 ft. lbs. (62 Nm). Install the No. 3 stay and tighten it to 54 ft. lbs. (73 Nm).
- Install the coolant overflow tank and the washer tank.
- Install the power steering reservoir tank and the cruise control actuator.
- Connect the battery cable, start the car and check for any leaks.

I do have a 1993 Camry 300sei (v6) Is the 1994
This engine will probably have a cast iron block, painted black. Depending on which country you are in, some year from 1994 on Toyota changed the V6 to a design with an aluminium block, the 1MZ engine. So have a look to see what the engine block is made of.
