Question about 2000 Toyota Camry

2 Answers

2000 Toyota Camry LE - engined blown - should I fix?

My trusty 2000 Camry (170K miles, yes I drive a lot) engine threw a rod on the highway! There is a big gaping hole, so now I need to decide if it's worth fixing. I wasn't expecting to have to get another car at this point. Our other two Camrys have both driven to 270K+ and are still going.

1) Is it worth fixing? Seems like the price to fix is about the same or slightly higher than the worth of the car.
2) If I go with the fix, is a remanufactured engine better than one from the junk yard?
3) One mechanic recommended Jasper engines w/ warranty. I've read some good reviews, some bad, any experience?

Thanks so much.

On your coment.
I'm a mechanic...
To decide for a USED engine Or REBUILT engine.
The Difference 1- is the Price
On used How many miles have the USED engine
How was the maintenance on the Engine. ( Never know)
The warranty Used only 30 days.
But is the Cheap option. depend of your money.

JASPER is ONE of the BETTER ENGINE and TRANS. Rebuilder company.
They have 2 warrantys, One 36,000 miles,
The other ONE is 72,000, wrote on papers.
They give to you A complete warranty.
If the ENGINE fail During the Warranty time. they will give to you an other engine, and pay for the Labor to Remove and Install the Second Engine.
If you do with JASPER ASK to the Installer for the Warranty papers if he buyit.

OK. O hope this help on your question.
Thank you for use fixya ...

1995 toyota corolla knocking in motor after no oil

Somehow or another (missing or loosened oil pan drain bolt, excessive oil usage, etc), you lost oil and therefore, oil pressure. Running a car with little or no oil, even for a few seconds, most likely ruined your engine. The knocking sound means you probably threw a rod. Unfortuneately, the only fix is a major engine overhaul or a new engine. Sorry for the bad news.

If he knows a lot about cars, he should know that you dont/cant fix a Bent Rod. Unless its a real nice car (flooded?) its not any more, its not worth fixing the engine. You need a new engine, or a used engine. .

I have a 1998 toyota camry le with 131,000 miles. last month, I noticed that there is a ticking sound coming from the engine compartment. as i give it gas the sound speeds up with the engine. there was no...

sounds like lifters, rods normally make a knocking sound try putting a couple of bottles of engine flush in and run the car around the block a couple of time then drain the oil and change the filter and replace the oil with a quality 15w 40 grade oil and see if the noise clears up. if it is still there you can try product called moreys oil addative this often helps quiet down liftes if still no good oyu may need to replace your lifters

1997 Toyota Camry engine problem, what could it be?

Could be MAJOR.

The clunking as you describe it could be you lost a main bearing or rod bearing.

Either way ya look at it, with that many miles and a "clunk"...its going to cost a good bit to get it fixed, or replace the motor.
