Question about 1990 Toyota Camry
My camry water pump went so i took it to the mechanic,we decided to check the head pressure to make sure it was alright,it was so he just replaced the water pump,but showed me the timing belt and it was pretty shredded.So he replaced that and did a tune and service.when i got it home i noticed that the car had lost considerable power(you would put your foot down to take off and there would be a slow take off followed by,after 4-5 sec of accelerating,a sudden **** of speed like the gears kicking in).I took it back and he said it could be the fuel filter,so he replaced that and the distributer and plugs.Since then the car is not starting properly in the morn or after it has rested for a couple of hours,it is also sluggish when running,and seems to be losing water (but not leaking)every 3 days(about half a litre?can u help please im sick of mechanics that give u the run around!
Loose compression could be the problem with the loss of power. Did he overhaul the engine? If so, he may have fiddled with it and may have not put everything back the way it was. Another possibility is the carbon build up in your combustion chamber. Unburned fuel does this. Don't let anyone tat ain't trustworthy overhaul your engine, as there's a possibility they salvage parts, replacing with cheap ****. To get rid of the carbon build up, you should have somebody "decarbonize" it with a carbon ridding solution. The procedure won't be longer than an hour, plus it's cheaper, and a lot more effective. Did the grease monkey check out the power assembly? A problem with that can give you pathetic acceleration, perhaps like what you're experiencing. That's what happened to my civic, and I had it replaced, and everything went back to normal.
For your situation, I'd got to an authorize service repair center, or get somebody you could trust, to check out the power assembly and the combustion chamber of your ride. Btw, I can't see exactly why you've been losing water, but it may have something to do with the radiator, so have somebody take a look.
Sorry for the late reply, I've been busy.
